Acupressure is based on one of the most ancient principles of healing — that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body.  In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these “points” on your body, whiche relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation.   This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.


Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world.  Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (channels or meridians).  Acupunture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow.

The many benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Stress and tension relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger digestion
  • Relief from bad habits and addictions
  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being



Cupping has been a part of Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years.  It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues.  I simply place a specialized “cup” onto specific points on your body, and then use suction to draw your skin up into the cups.  It doesn’t hurt — it simply draws fresh blood to that area of your body, which facilitates the cleansing and strengthening of your Qi (energy).  The end result is a greater overall sense of health and well-being.



Electroacupuncture is a highly effective holistic treatment for pain, nausea, and chronic ailments.  In practice, it is actually very similar to traditional acupuncture.  Using the exact same system of Chinese Medicine, I insert very thin sterile needles into specific points along the meridians of your body.  I then attach the needles to a device that delivers gentle electrical pulses between two points.  This helps restore the healthy flow of Qi (energy) through your body, removing any blockages and clearing out stagnant areas, thus creating a stronger and clearer experience of health and well-being.

Gua Sha

Although Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique used by Chinese Medicine practitioners for thousands of years, it is relatively unknown in the West.  It is recognized throughout Asia as a highly effective treatment for chronic pain conditions, stress, fatigue, and a host of other ailments.

First, Gua Sha oil is applied to a specific meridian (energy pathway) on your body.  I then use a smooth round-edged object (such as a spoon) to apply short brisk strokes to that area.  This creates red patches of skin (called “Sha”), detoxifying your blood and restoring the health flow of Qi (energy) to the area.  There is no pain involved, and the Sha will fade in 2 to 3 days.  But the sense of health and vitality you experience from it will last much longer.


Laser Acupuncture

Laser Acupuncture is the latest innovation in the 2,500 year old medical tradition of acupuncture.  It uses low-energy laser beams — instead of traditional acupuncture needles — on specific points of your body to unblock and restore the healthy flow of Qi (energy) through your meridians.  This treatment is completely painless and non-invasive, and just as effective as a traditional acupuncture session.

The many benefits of laser acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Stress and tension relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger digestion
  • Relief from bad habits and addictions
  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being


Medical Qi Gong

Medical Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese Medical practice that combines slow movements, conscious breathing, and focused mental attention to strengthen and enhance the flow of Qi (energy) throughout your body.  Rather than addressing your symptoms (as Western medicine tends to do), Medical Qi Gong addresses your ailment at its very source by healing your entire being — mentally, emotionally, and physically.


Moxibustion (Moxa)

Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing and health.  Moxibustion has been used for healing purposes throughout Asia for thousands of years.  The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of TCM, is to strengthen the Blood, stimulate the flow of Qi (energy), and enhance your overall vitality and health.

Among other benefits, a landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that 75.4% of women suffering from breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses that rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at an acupuncture point on the Bladder meridian.


NADA Protocol

Developed in the 1970s at Lincoln Detox (Bronx, NY), the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol was originally used as a supportive component in drug and alcohol treatment settings.  The 3-5 point ear acupuncture formula controlled withdrawal symptoms and helped patients become more clear-headed and comfortable.

The NADA Protocol is a non-verbal approach to healing.  It is a standardized ear acupuncture and acupressure treatment that involves the gentle placement of up to 5 needles or seeds & beads into specific sites on each ear and sitting quietly, usually in a group setting, for 30-45 minutes.

The many benefits from the NADA Protocol are:

  • Increased calmness, better sleep
  • Decrease in anxiety and agitation
  • Reduced cravings for alcohol and other drugs (including nicotine)
  • Relief from stress & trauma
  • Easier connection with counseling & other health & healing treatments

Photizo Infrared Light Therapy

Photizo Pain Relief’s LED light therapy harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths and frequencies for accelerated healing by activating the body’s own pain and relaxing ‘medication’.

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are non-invasive, painless, produce a gentle and soothing warmth and do not require recovery time.

Photizo Pain Relief allows increased blood flow into the area being treated to ensure that any waste is quickly removed from the area.

Tui Na

Tui Na is an ancient form of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It uses a variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body.  By treating both the physical (musculature) and energetic (Qi) levels of your body at the same time.  I will be offering this technique at a later date.
