“I think people want to learn how to be their own healers. Giving people the right guidance and tools so they can have optimal health. At the end of the day the body wants to heal itself, it just need the proper support and that’s where I come in. I educate and support that person for their individual needs”
Acupuncture care helps to relieve symptoms & signs of many health problems. It can also uncover the underlying root cause(s) of those symptoms. The goal is to activate the natural, self-healing abilities of the body. It can also strengthen & support the body to prevent future illness and disease.
Traditional Chinese medicine is a style of traditional medicine based on more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice that includes various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, exercise, and dietary therapy, but recently also influenced by modern Western medicine
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It is used to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
