Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific acupoints along the skin of the body. It involves various methods including the application of heat, pressure, laser, or penetration of thin needles. It is a form of complementary and alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). According to TCM, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi (energy) through channels known as meridians. Acupuncture aims to treat a range of conditions, though is most commonly used for pain relief.
Homeopathy balances the body using substances from nature with the idea that “like cures like.” Potentization is the method of preparation for these substances. For example, using potentized red onion treats colds and allergies that have similar symptoms of burning watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing.
Aromatherapy uses the wonderful sense of smell for healing. Concentrated essences of flowers, fruits, herbs, and plants have been used for centuries. Essential oils can effectively impact the user on a cellular, physical level as well as in the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual areas of your life. Essential oils provide a system of medicine which is not only in total biochemical harmony with the human body, but also noninvasive to it in terms of electromagnetism. Used alone or in conjunction with massage the benefits of aroma therapy are subtle but powerful.
Herbal Medicine uses a wide variety of plant and mineral substances to restore balance and can greatly enhance the effects of acupuncture especially in chronic disease. Herbs, like acupuncture, have been used for several thousand years and treat a wide variety of conditions including, but not limited to, common colds and flu, digestive and menstrual issues, sports injuries, UTI’s, anxiety, sleep disturbances, incontinence, and skin conditions.

Gua sha, meaning “scraping sha-bruises“, is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing. Gua sha is also referred to as “spooning” or “coining”. Gua sha is an ancient technique used in modern times and is very helpful for lung conditions including asthma and bronchitis and is also helpful for relieving muscle tension.
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese treatment using local suction on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Cupping is beneficial for lung conditions such as bronchitis and asthma and is also helpful for relieving muscle tension.
