Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the practice of placing small sterile single-use needles at key points throughout the body to help regulate energy flow and send healing signals to one's own system. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and was developed through observation and practice.

 

In treatments, I choose which acupuncture points to use based on Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis, or Japanese Hara Diagnosis. I will listen to your health history and symptoms, observe your tongue and feel your pulse to get an understanding of what is going on internally. I might also palpate your abdomen to make a diagnosis and pick acupuncture points which can help to rebalance your system. 

Cupping

Cupping has been used all over the world in many cultures to relieve pain, to promote circulation, and decrease muscle tension. Cupping involves placing Suction cups on areas of the body. It generally feels like a relaxing massage.

Facial Rejuvenation

My facial rejuvenation treatments include acupuncture, facial gua sha, and cupping.

 

Acupuncture facial rejuvenation stimulates blood flow, increases collagen production,  and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. It helps to decrease facial puffiness and leaves the skin looking more taut and youthful. 

 

Facial Gua Sha and Facial Cupping increase blood circulation and promote lymphatic drainage. 

Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal formulas can help relieve symptoms and change the root of the disease pattern. In herbal formulas, several herbs work together to balance each other, treat a range of conditions, and reduce others' side effects. Many herbal formulas can be taken safely short term or long term. Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal formulas have been used for thousands of years. They are written about extensively in ancient texts and are used today to treat similar conditions.

Somatic Coaching

I provide somatic coaching in the Generative Somatics lineage. I work with clients to come into more embodied alignment with their values, deeper longings, and visions for personal and social change. This process includes increasing somatic awareness, incorporating new embodied practices, and using somatic opening to create more choice and possibility. We address individual and collective trauma healing.
