Acupuncture


Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive treatment method to help millions of people become and stay well. Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.

Acupuncture is a therapy that uses the insertion of tiny thread-like needles to specific points on the body along meridians (energy channels of the body) that cross the body. As long as the energy flows freely through these pathways, health is maintained. When the flow of energy is disturbed for any reason, there is disruption in health, resulting in pain or illness. By stimulating appropriate acupuncture points along these meridians, the energy is regulated, and health is restored.

Massage Therapy


Pre-Natal Massage
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage - to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.
Swedish
Swedish techniques utilizes long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart. There are six basic strokes: effleurage (French meaning: 'to skim over'), petrissage (French meaning: 'to knead'), friction, tapotement, compression, and vibration.

Deep Tissue
Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the practitioner can access deeper layers of the soft tissue.

Aromatherapy

This is the use of natural or “essential” oils extracted from all parts of plants and flowers and used to enhance the all-around well – being of the body. Combining aromas with massage greatly increases relaxation, helping connect the body and mind and add a more therapeutic effect.


Reflexology

It is a unique method of using compression massage on the reflex points of the hands and feet to stimulate the movement of energy and nerve supply to the different body systems. It assists in the treatment of symptoms from many ailments, including emotional stress and general tension, traumas such as injury or surgery, specific feet disorders such as plantar fasciitis, and lymphatic congestion.


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

This is a very gentle, relaxing, light touch massage. It is a specific, 50 min massage routine over the entire lymphatic system to enhance the flow, detoxing the body, and clearing any back up in the lymphatic system. It is used to assist in reducing swelling in limbs, lymphatic collection around scars from surgeries (mastectomies or the removal of lymph nodes), to sooth sore muscles, smooth cellulite and many other situations. (2-3 sessions a week for at least 2 weeks to start seeing results)


Fascia Blasting

Fascia is the connective tissue that lies beneath the skin and above the fat layers. When fascia gets tight (due to tight muscles, lack of hydration, cellulite, age etc.) it creates a dimpling effect resulting in dents, dimples, or wrinkles. Receiving a treatment allows skin to look smoother, increase blood flow, increase muscle function and range of motion, and relieve aches and pains. A session can range from a full body to the focus on a specific area or issue.
