"Balance is not something you find;
it's something you create."
~ Jana Kingsford
Tools to Support You
The human body holds the key to it's own healing, but sometimes it needs a little help. That’s where my services come in. As an Acupuncturist and Reiki Master, I work with you to restore your balance and find your center.
These treatment options may be combined to create the most supportive treatment for your individual situation.
Balance Your Qi
Acupuncture is part of the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM explains that the human body has acupuncture points connected by meridians. These meridians are pathways that create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By inserting needles in specific points along these meridians, it improves the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.
Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective for a variety of conditions.
I have completed specialty training in Women's Health, Fertility, Pregnancy and Postpartum, and Cancer Care.
Protect Your Skin Barrier
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses small, sterilized needles to prick the skin. The purpose of this treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue to smooth, firm, and tone skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and neck and may reduce the appearance of acne, scars, dark or light spots, wrinkles, and large pores. It can also be used on the scalp to promote hair growth.
Microneedling treatments are available in discounted packages that may include microneedling, nanoneedling, AcuGlow™ facial treatment, infrared light therapy, and products to support your skin after treatment.
Move Blood and Lymph
This treatment releases toxins from the skin and supports lymphatic function. It helps to hydrate skin, disperse hyperpigmentation, reduce pore size, and reduce puffiness. You will experience increased blood flow, strengthening of connective tissues, and stimulation of collagen producing cells.
AcuGlow™ treatment includes facial gua sha and cupping and may include infrared light therapy to stimulate collagen production.
Cupping, Tui Na, and Gua Sha
Ease Your Tension
Cupping involves placing special cups on your body to create suction.
Tui Na is a form of Chinese medical massage.
Gua Sha is a scraping technique done with a stone, ceramic, or metal tool.
These three modalities can be used together for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
LED Light Therapy
Support Your Healing
LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes different wavelengths of infrared light to help treat various skin issues such as acne, fine lines, wounds, and pain.
Learn more about the many uses of different LED light colors on my blog page.
Balance Your Energy
Reiki is an energy balancing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to improve the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
Healing from the Earth
Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and flavor, or “essence,” of their source. Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell, and long-term memory.
Calm Your Mind
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. It was originally meant to help deepen understanding of the sacred and mystical forces of life. These days, it is commonly used for relaxation and stress reduction.
Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine that can produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind.
