Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine modality that stimulates the body’s natural healing ability. It is based on the belief that optimal health is the result of quality energy flow that enables the body’s organs to work balance.  Our practitioners work with clients to evaluate the root cause of imbalances and develop a plan of healing that includes acupuncture, herbs and Qigong.

This form of energy stimulation is often referred to as a massage technique. While fully clothed, the client relaxes on a massage table. The practitioner systematically stimulates energy points and encourages energy (Qi) to flow. The relaxation benefits allow the client to connect with an inner calm.

Using Qi for healing purposes is an ancient art. Clients relax in a chair or on a massage table. The practitioner assesses areas of energy stagnation and uses hands off, energy transmission to stimulate Qi flow. All practitioners have been extensively trained for a minimum of 5 years. Clients report an increase in relaxation and an overall feeling of balance.

groupOne-to-One Guidance

Client and practitioner work together to develop an actionable lifestyle plan. During one-on-one sessions, our TCM health counselors assess the client’s needs and collaboratively create a plan of action that includes Qigong practice, eating for healing, guidance on how to rewrite old patterns. Clients report remarkable results that have shifted life-time patterns.
