EXPANDED HEALING

"Demolishing one's own boundaries does not make the relative world vanish; it adds another dimension of reality to it - reality becomes unbounded. When the walls are down the world can expand." - D.CHOPRA

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is an adjunct therapy that uses an instrument with a rounded edge to repeatedly stimulate and scrape an area of the body, a therapeutic oil is applied to reduce surface friction, with the intention of drawing up stagnant blood and fluid.

This sha therapy also dissipates and release heat within the body creating an Anti-inflammatory effect that helps support the Immune System.

Moxabustion

Moxabustion means the burning of Moxa. The Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris) plant is dried, crushed and rolled into sticks to be used as Indirect Moxa or rolled into small cones for Direct Moxa therapy. The stick or the cones are then burned and held over or directly on specific acupuncture points, applying traditional techniques to elicit a more controlled and desired effect. The heat level is constantly monitored by the Practitioner, safety and comfort are critical.

Cupping

There are many forms of cupping, all of which have been applied throughout the history of the Medicine. Traditionally, Fire Cupping is most commonly used. A vacuum is created using fire within the cups, they are then quickly placed on areas of the skin for several minutes up to approximately 15 minutes. This helps to promote blood flow, circulation, detoxification, it releases knotted muscles, fascia, and more.

FACIAL REJUVENATION ACUPUNCTURE 

Beauty from the Inside, Out!

Benefits of the Ancient techniques used in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture Treatments:

  • improved muscle tone 

  • improved dermal contraction 

  • increased blood flow and circulation of fluids and lymph around the face and neck 

  • increased collagen production 

  • tightening of pores

  • reduction of fine lines

  • reduction of scarring & ACNE 

Traditionally completed over a series of 10 treatments, I combine Facial and Full-body Acupuncture Points with Facial Tui Na, Dietary Guidance and Chinese Herbal Masks to cultivate your natural beauty from the inside, out. Most people see a difference after the first treatment, and go on to maintain the benefits after completing the series with bi-monthly treatments. 

Being the largest organ of the body, the skin contains roughly 75% of our blood and is responsible for detoxification and circulation, absorbs and releasing fluids, heat, and pathogens. The better your skin is functioning, the more vibrant you'll look and feel. Part of this medicine involves the release of chronically-embodied emotional patterns that, overtime, lead to fine lines, wrinkles, facial dullness and puffiness. We often refer to this release as a healing crisis, which, as it sounds, may or may not involve emotional discomfort. I will be here to guide and support you through this process, if and as it occurs. The benefits are well worth the journey.

Be beautiful in your bravery.
