Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing system that is based on balancing yin and yang, creating homeostasis of excess and deficiency and harmonizing Qi, a vital energy that flows throughout the body along meridian pathways. Diagnosis and treatment plans are derived from examining the pulse, tongue, body, health history, lifestyle, patterns, signs and symptoms.
Specific points in the body are located and activated with thin needles to access an energy called Qi. By balancing the Qi we remove blockages, invigorate circulation and harmonize dysfunctions in the bodymindspirit. This 5,000 year old technique is affective in treating physical, mental and emotional disorders.
Herbs are used as natural agents to help nourish, support, strengthen and cleanse the system during treatment. Medicinal formulas consisting of a combination of various herbs are administered to balance the system in teas, tinctures, capsules or granulated forms.
Various modalities of body manipulation are used to target muscle groups and connective tissue to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. These forms include Swedish and deep tissue massage, shiatsu, tui-na, trigger point and acupressure techniques.
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction which mobilizes blood flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments.
A combination of two Japanese words "rei" and "ki" meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies in our bodies along the chakra system in the central axis of the body.
An array of healing crystals are placed on different parts of the body and energy centers (chakras) to recharge, cleanse and balance the bodymindspirit. They have versatile affects in harmonizing and balancing the organs, nervous system and aura.
Heated basalt stones are used to relax, soothe and down regulate the nervous system. These smooth, rounded stones are placed along various areas of the body to promote relaxation, grounding and circulation. They are also used with warm oil to massage sore muscles and joints.
Electro-stim is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles which helps to restore health and well-being, and is particularly good for treating pain.
Moxibustion is an alternative therapy that involves burning herbs and applying the resulting heat to specific points on the body which helps to increase the flow of Qi, vital energy, throughout the body via certain pathways called meridians.
These concentrated liquids containing healing compounds in the forms of essential oils are extracted from flowers, trees, roots, herbs, berries and fruits to treat a wide range of disorders. The potent oils are either massaged into the skin in diluted form, applied on and around the body and inhaled for affects.
