Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used to assist the body in correcting imbalances. It works based on a system of channels or meridians. Each channel has a series of acupuncture points on the channel and each point has a specific function. If there is blockage or an imbalance within a channel, disease results. Acupuncture works in organizing a combination of points for each individual to unblock the channels and direct the body to maintain an optimal state of wellbeing. It provides a road map for the body toward restoration, harmony and health. Acupuncture needles are solid, sterile, single-use, and disposable.

Chinese Medicinal Herbs

Chinese herbs have been used for thousands of years. Hundreds of herbs are used to restore balance to the body. Each herb has a particular function, and when used in combination with other herbs, a formula can be created specifically for each patient. Herbal formulas can be taken short-term or long-term depending on the condition. Herbs are available in various forms (raw, powder, pill, or tincture).

Cupping and Gua Sha

Both modalities are therapeutic techniques used to promote circulation, relieve pain in chronic and acute conditions, and treat the common cold among many other uses. They are believed to draw toxins out of the tissues to be filtered and removed.

A rounded edge of a tool, such as a porcelain spoon, is used in Gua Sha therapy to gently rub the skin to relieve congestion in the area and assist blood and lymph circulation. Cupping uses glass or plastic cups. These cups are positioned on the skin and a vacuum is created. The cups are lightly suctioned to the skin promoting circulation. Cupping and Gua sha can create a bruise-like appearance in the area treated. Although neither method actually breaks the skin, skin may have a red or purple appearance for approximately 2-3 days after treatment.

Moxibustion

 

This is a heating technique using a specific part of the herb Artemesia, better known as MUGWORT! That’s right kids just like in Harry Potter! One of the benefits of Mugwort when used in this fashion is to warm, and circulate blood in the blood vessels. Moxibustion comes in various forms, such as dried, stick, or powdered form.

Shamanism

 

In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul.” ~ Angeles Arrien

We offer Shamanic treatments for those who feel called to receive. This includes a brief intake and overview of whatever you might be dealing with that seems to be out of reach from other forms of healing or is a deeper extension of an ongoing situation.
