Chinese Herbs

Herbs are used in conjunction with acupuncture and on their own to bring balance to the body. The Chinese have developed their pharmacopoeia over thousands of years, combining herbs to create formulas aimed at treating a wide range of diseases. Herbal formulas can be given in raw form and made into teas, in dissolevable powders, or taken in pill form.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the stimulation of points along pathways of the body which the Chinese call meridians. These meridians traverse the body's surface and connect internally to organs. By stimulating specific points along meridians, qi is allowed to flow, and blockages are cleared.

Cranio-Sacral Services

What is Cranio-Sacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing form which assists the body's natural capacity for self-repair. In a typical session, the client lies on the table fully clothed while the therapist gently places their hands lightly on the body, tuning into what is happening by listening with their hands. A deep sense of relaxation generally occurs, and with this the flowing of the cerebral spinal fluid is easily refreshed.The work can address physical aches and pains, acute and chronic diseases, recovery from car accidents and other traumas, emotional or psychological disharmonies, or simply help to develop vitality, health and well-being.

The craniosacral system is the deepest physiological system in the human body, thus working with this system in conjunction with acupuncture can help shift deeper patterns in the body.

Craniosacral therapy can treat many longstanding conditions such as frozen shoulder, headaches, TMJ, menstrual pain and PMS, post-operative conditions, visual disturbances, exhaustion, stress, and more.
