The following therapies assist in balancing the bodies immune, nervous, cardiovascular and digestive systems. After gathering a detailed health history, I curate a session with patients that addresses underlying issues causing symptoms while honoring the patients requests and comfort.
Cupping: Utilizes cups to create suction on specific areas of the body; typically on the back, legs and abdomen. Cupping improves circulation, assists detoxification, digestion, reduces inflammation and clears congestion.
Gua Sha: Utilizes various instruments used over lubricated areas of the skin to intentionally creating transitory therapeutic petechiae also known as “sha.” Gua Sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune response from the body assisting in reducing pain and healing from acute and chronic organ disorders and dysfunction in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Acupressure: Acupressure is a hands on method that therapeutically stimulates classical acupuncture points to support the bodies natural healing process by reducing tension, releasing stagnation and balancing the organ systems.
