Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of healing, which started in 200 B.C., using small stones. Today sterile, disposable, needles made of thin, stainless steel filaments are inserted into points along the appropriate meridians, or energy lines of the body to relieve pain, acute or chronic; signs and symptoms of systemic diseases, or other conditions. 

The initial session takes two hours, Follow-up treatments take one to one and one half hours, especially if other healing modalities are included.

After the initial treatment, the plan of healing will be discussed with the client, to include the number of sessions. Rule of thumb, the more chronic the condition, the number of sessions will be increased.
 Please check with your insurance company to see if you are covered under your present plan.

Other Healing Modalities Offered Separately, or in Combination with Acupuncture include:

Tui-Na (Chinese Bodywork) is a medical hands-on treatment for sports injuries such as, Tennis and Golfer's Elbow, Frozen Shoulder, Runner's Knee and any type of Musculoskeletal pain, Strain or Sprain and Tendonitis. Great just for relaxation, also.
This method includes hand rolling, kneading, pressing, plucking, stretching, and acupressure points to move the Qi (energy), stimulate the circulation of blood, and lubricate the joints. This will release musculoskeletal constriction and relax the tendons to relieve pain. It is both energizing and relaxing at the same time.

Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on, light touch, therapeutic Technique which releases muscle constriction and re-balances the cerebral fluid. It is very effective in treating acute or chronic pain, Neuro-muscular conditions, Migraine Headaches, ADD, and ADHD.

Somato-emotional Therapy combines craniosacral therapy and psycho-synthesis, to uncover one's core beliefs locked in the memory of your cellular tissues. Some patterns, although once useful, relate to old fears and prevent you from going forward in your life. This often results in stress, repetitive outdated behavior patterns and physical disease.

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning "Universal Life Energy". This hands-on therapy was rediscovered by a Japanese monk, Dr. Mikao Usui, while studying the sacred sutras in the late 1800's. Once initiated, by a Reiki Master, the practitioner through meditation, breath and intention, conveys the energy through her hands to the client. The results provide deep relaxation and healing to one's mind, body and spiritual well being.

Light and color therapy is an ancient method of healing using the full spectrum of rainbow colors, through the use of stained glass pieces, via a Light machine. This is synchronized by a computer chip, utilizing the Fibonacci cycle. This method was developed by Theo Gimbel, a pioneer in this field. A treatment takes 20 minutes. 
Stained glass contains minerals and ions (electrolytes) which match those in the body. It helps to clear the body's aura by re-balancing the light energy moving at various degrees of measurable hertz energy in the body. For example: When you have a headache, the circulation and muscles are constricted.  Administering yellow and blue light will release the constriction causing the pain and allow the blood to circulate more freely. Children love it!  

Sacred Stone Massage is a rejuvenating body treatment using hot oils and warm, smooth, beach stones to relax your muscles, melt away your stress and empty your mind. Ah, so divine!
