Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that concentrates on balancing the body’s Chi/Qi or natural energy, life force by way of the major Meridians or channels. In this way, we can access and nourish all parts of the body to promote proper health.
Very fine acupuncture needles are inserted into points along the channels that are blocked. Such stimulation (which can also be achieved by other techniques such as Gusha, cupping, etc.) helps restore natural balance and flow of Chi allowing organs and body functions to work in harmony and at full potential to maintain optimum health.
Acupuncture works very well in combination with western medicine, physical medicine, as well as other complementary techniques such as; Massage and Reiki healing.

Massage therapy is a form of body work that focuses on the superficial layers of the
body (ie); muscles, tendons and ligaments. The most common form of massage is Swedish Massage which incorporates long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements along the superficial layers of muscle tissue. A lotion or oil is usually
used during the treatment to enhance flow.
Massage creates flow and movement of energy, as well as helping to move
fluid throughout the body to maintain a natural balance of health.
A typical session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes and is extremely helpful to reduce
stress and relieve muscle soreness.

The term “hypnosis” stems from the Greek work “hypnos” meaning sleep and
was coined in 1840 by Dr. James Braid.
Hypnosis is a state of mind, enhanced by the mental and physical state of relaxation
at which time the subconscious mind is brought to the forefront and is able to communicate with the conscious mind. The conscious mind is the active, thinking mind. During this altered state of mind or deep state of relaxation, we can access our “Higher Self” or our “Inner Most Potential”. Physical, emotional and psychological blocks can be brought to light, thereby redirecting or eliminating unwanted habits, behaviors, feelings and replacing them with more positive, more desirable ones.
The client is completely aware and in control during sessions. One has the ability to
wake up at anytime if so desired. Changes in habits, behaviors, etc., are discussed
and agreed upon prior to session. The hypnotherapist acts as a facilitator to guide
the client into a relaxed state of mind and helps the client access the subconscious
state where changes can be made.
Hypnosis is an effective and very safe method to redirect unwanted habits, emotions, feelings or behaviors that may be interrupting peace or good health in one’s life.
