My practice style is unique compared to other acupuncture practices. Acupuncturists mainly use the Meridians and Points energy system to assess and correct imbalances in the body. This is a powerful energy system in and of itself in making effective changes in ones health and healing. I too use this system as an acupuncturist. However, I also work with most of the other energy systems in the body as well; the Chakras, Aura, 5-Rhythms (AKA 5-Elements), Neurovasculars, Neurolymphatics, Celtic Weave, Radiant Circuits, Triple Warmer and the Electrics. (The Basic Grid system is not part of my repertoire at this time). All of these energy systems interact, communicate, and support each other and make up our anatomy energetically.
Sessions are in a private, confidential and informal setting which is comfortable, safe and conducive to healing.
After you fill out a health history questionnaire, we will discuss the issues you want to address regarding your well-being. I may use pulse and tongue diagnosis as well as energy testing (also known as muscle testing or Applied Kinesiology AK) to evaluate and assess the imbalances in your body's energy systems. In addition to this information, I am tuning into your body's needs every step of the way, intuitively guided throughout the session.
We work as a team to correct the imbalances at each level and layer, tracking as we go. Most of the treatment session time is spent lying down on a massage table. I may use my hands, fingers, acupuncture needles, or massage during the treatment session. Most of the time I am present and working with you during the entire session and occasionally you may rest on your own with acupuncture needles. Everything we do together is always on your terms. I function as an assistant to your healing process.
I usually recommend tools and exercises that you can use and practice at home and beyond the healing session to keep your healing process going. I may suggest Chinese herbal medicine, homeopathy, and other supplements to enhance your healing process when needed. We may discuss diet, nutrition and lifestyle choices and work together to create a plan that works for you and your specific needs.
Many people leave a healing session feeling relaxed, energized, hopeful and empowered.
Sessions run 90 minutes for the first session. Returning sessions are usually 60 minutes unless otherwise arranged. Sessions longer than 60 minutes are available upon request.
