Acupuncture involves the insertion of ultra thin needles at intuitively chosen points throughout the body along the meridian pathways. Through the stimulation of these points, acupuncture can treat a variety of physical, spiritual and emotional conditions by restoring normal function and balance to the various body systems (both physical and energetic). Treatments are based on Chinese medicine theory, diagnosis, and practice - a system of medicine that has been developed and practiced for over 4,000 years and has its roots in shamanism. 

Your treatment will be tailored to your specific pattern and will include additional modalities such as fire cupping, moxibustion or essential oils over specific points when appropriate.

Initial Session: $150
Follow-ups: $125

Crystal healing is a holistic, non-invasive, vibrational system of energy healing that can be used on or away from the body. Although non-medical, it is an excellent way to obtain relief from physical ailments such as headaches, digestive issues and arthritic pain; emotional issues such as grief, stress and self-esteem; and mental health issues such as clarity and focus. Sound baths retune our bodies to a higher vibrational frequency, stimulating alpha and theta brain waves associated with meditative states of stillness. When paired together, sound healing and crystal healing can support a synergistic journey towards total wellness.

Esoteric Acupuncture is based on the encoding needling patterns designed by Dr Mikio Sankey. They both expand consciousness and balance the chakras, thus enhancing the higher spiritual heart. By needling the classic acupuncture points in a specific sequence, the body’s energy field is altered. 

Needling these specific patterns allow the client to access higher planes of consciousness more easily. The sequences can be considered to be Kabbalistic patterns, and sacred geometry, but they also integrate with Traditional Chinese acupuncture and the Ayurvedic Marmas and Nadi.

In a modern context, they connect with quantum medicine and superstring physics and the energy field. Esoteric Acupuncture therefore appeals to seekers from many different paths as a concept of aligning with the Higher Consciousness and spiritual heart.

As Esoteric Acupuncture is working with the heart energy to encourage spiritual evolution, many people sense the spinning of energy at the points needled, and perceive the building of a geometric structure (often tetrahedrons) within and without. These treatments are meant to open one up to their soul's purpose, and to witness the truth of who and what they are.

Initial Session: $150
Follow Ups: $125

Myofascial tissue is continuous and omnipresent in the body. It interweaves and wraps muscles, and every division of tissue within the muscle. By weight, 40% of a muscle is fascial tissue. Where there is chronic or acute pain, limited or difficult range of motion, ongoing stress and tension, there is almost always myofascial tissue which needs to be released and relaxed. The techniques are derived from Hellerwork, which is a gentler derivative of Rolfing.

This is deep work, with sensation. The immediate result is more freedom of movement.

Rates: 60 minutes $95 ~ 90 minutes $135 (plus tax)

Created in the 1980’s by D. Gary Young, N.D., based on his research with the Lakota Indians, therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped like rain along the spine and then worked into the skin with various light massage techniques. Within moments the oils are absorbed through the skin into the nerves and tissues of the body.

Wonderfully soothing, nurturing, and relaxing, Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in immediate and profound ways with long lasting effects.  Deep relaxation, increased energy, enhanced immunity, detoxification, relief of aches and pains, renewed flexibility, postural alignment, a sense of peacefulness and feelings of well being are just some of Raindrop Technique's extraordinary benefits.

Please shower before your session so the essential oils may stay on as long as possible (ideally overnight).  Wear or bring clothing that is machine washable, as some residual oils may absorb into your clothing after the session.  Plan on drinking 2 or 3 glasses of water after your Raindrop session. The essential oils bring nutrition into your cells and may cause your tissues to release toxins into your blood stream, lymph and skin. The water will facilitate this detoxification process.  Schedule a time for your appointment so you can relax afterwards.

Rates: 60 minutes $95, 3 sessions $270 (plus tax)

"Water unlocks her electric hands, to see the fury of the moon. A fury that reaches beyond death into a gentle blueness where everything spins deep inside itself. On that axis, sound is born. Our opposition is powerless. It can hold nothing in place." - Donna Carey, "Axis"

Tuning fork therapy is a powerful, yet gentle healing modality that introduces frequencies to the body through various acupuncture points. I utilize the frequencies of the moon, sun, earth and primordial ohm to bring your body back into alignment. Often sound healing can induce a trance-like or altered state of consciousness that allows you to get out of your own way and receive deep healing. I work not only with the 12 regular meridians, but also with the deeper energetic systems of the body that reflect divine destiny, and the unfolding of your soul's blueprint in this incarnation. As human beings, we respond to sound on a primal level, and these powerful frequencies not only release stuck energy in the body that need to be brought to the light of consciousness, but also remind us of who we are as divine beings having a sacred, earthly existence.

Sound Healing Session - $150 for 1hr; $80 for 30 mins
Acupuncture + Sound Healing Session - $225

A melding of Chi Nei Tsang or Taoist/Chinese abdominal massage and Thai soft abdomen massage, these techniques work to help your body heal abdominal issues. There is much confusion about food and health. We have many digestive and emotional issues surrounding and trapped in the soft abdomen, inhibiting correct function. In Thai massage we approach the body not as a machine, but as an organic structure with an energy system and an emotional system that can both change the structure and physiology of the physical organism. The focus of the massage is on detoxifying and assisting the very important digestive process. If we cannot digest effectively we will have no energy, if we cannot de-toxify we will feel irritable and uncomfortable. 

We start with the top layer of the body, the skin, to detoxify it. We work into the facial layer, unblocking adhesions, facial chains and releasing scars. We work on the main muscles of the abdomen to relax them. We work on the digestive system from stomach to rectum, shifting blockages. Finally, we work the sen lines (meridians) of the abdomen (Sea of Qi), as this stimulates the body's natural desire for optimal health.

This is deep work, with sensation. Multiple sessions are recommended. 

Rates: 60 minutes $95 ~ 90 minutes $135 (plus tax)
Harmony Series: 3/60 minute sessions $270 ~ 3/90 minute sessions $390 (plus tax)
