Taking time for yourself during pregnancy can be uplifting emotionally. The soothing touch of massage during pregnancy allows the mommy-to-be to unwind and feel comforted from the stress her body is in due to increased weight, shifting posture and adjusting hormone levels.
This massage is done with the client lying on her side, with her head, legs and stomach supported with cushions and pillows. The therapist can then work safely on her back without creating any increased pressure.
For a portion of the session the client will be helped into a semi-reclining position with her legs elevated. This position allows the therapist to treat the rest of the body (shoulders, arms, hands, legs, feet, scalp), and it allows the client to experience great comfort and deep relaxation-in the safest way possible.

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
* Migraine Headaches
* Chronic Neck and Back Pain
* Motor-Coordination Impairments
* Central Nervous System Disorders
* Orthopedic Problems
* Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
* Learning Disabilities
* Chronic Fatigue
* Emotional Difficulties
* Stress and Tension-Related Problems
* Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
* Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
* Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
* Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
* Post-Surgical Dysfunction
Dry Skin Brushing
Skin is the largest organ of the body. Dry brushing promotes skin health by exfoliating, stimulates the lymphatic system, increasing blood circulation in all organs and tissues, and rejuvenating the entire nervous system by stimulating nerve endings. It has also been known to reduce cellulite deposits. It can improve overall health and boost your immune system, while also toning, smoothing and tightening your skin.
Cupping increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. The increased local blood supply to the muscles and skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away through the veins. Perfect for those with chronic muscle pain and tension, or anyone experiencing cold, flu or allergy symptoms.
Muscle taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion, and allows the bodys own muscular system to heal itself bio-mechanically.
It is used to correct the alignment of weak muscles as well as facilitate joint motion, increasing blood flow and circulation of lymphatic fluids (swelling).
Ear Candling, or Thermo Auricular Therapy as it is also known, can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area.
The candles work by vaporizing their ingredients once lit, causing convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction which lets the vapors gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal which enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out of the ear.
What can be treated with Ear Candles?
* Tinitus and compacted ear wax
* Sore throats and hay fever
* Headache and migraine
* Sinusitis and rhinitis
* Menier's Disease
What cannot be treated with Ear Candles?
* Perforation or lack of eardrum
* Ventilation tubes, auricular drains or grommets
* Recent ear surgery
* Auricular cysts
* Acute mastoiditis
* Otosclerosis or Otospongiosis
* Ear tumor
If you are in doubt about any of these conditions or problems you have with your ear, please consult your physician before scheduling a treatment.
Your therapist will use 2-4 candles per ear, depending on your needs. Price varies based on number of candles used. Each candle takes approximately 10 minutes to burn, so a minimum treatment of two candles per ear takes approximately 40 minutes.
|40 minutes (2 candles per ear)||$40.00|
|60 minutes (3 candles per ear)||$60.00|
|80 minutes (4 candles per ear)||$80.00|

Acupuncture is one of the essential elements of Chinese medicine and the oldest, most commonly used medical procedure in the world.
Acupuncture points are located in all areas of the body. Sometimes the appropriate points are far removed from the area of your pain. Your practitioner will tell you the general location of the planned treatment points and whether articles of clothing need to be removed. If appropriate, a gown, towel or sheet will be provided to preserve your modesty. After you lie down on a comfortably padded table, the same kind used for a massage, the treatment begins.
Acupuncture - Initial Consultation & Treatment
During your first office visit, the practitioner may ask you at length about your health condition, lifestyle, and behavior. The practitioner will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs and behaviors that may contribute to your condition and help determine an appropriate treatment strategy.
Acupuncture needles are metallic, solid, and hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Some people feel energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed.
Acupuncture - Established Client Session
After an initial consultation, your practitioner will develop an appropriate treatment plan designed to reach your goals for treatment.

Needle Free Treatment Options
Microcurrent therapy offers a non-needle method for patients to experience the benefits of acupuncture. Microcurrent Bio-Therapy (MBT) is an extremely effective therapy that may be used instead of needles to promote healing. Alleviation of pain, inflammation, spasm, restricted range of motion, and tissue damage can be treated at the cellular level. Some of the most enthusiastic advocates of microcurrent therapy, professional athletes and their trainers have maintained that such treatment has significantly shortened time on injury lists.
Extremely low frequencies (0.3 - 10 Hz) and intensities (25-150 microamperes) are applied to selected acupuncture points with hand held probes or pads. This very low frequency range is resonant with normal electrical activity of the human body. Little or no electric current is felt. MBT utilizes currents that are several hundred to a thousand times lower than conventional electric stimulation.
Although immediate and dramatic results are frequently reported from MBT, it is common for there to be a 24-48 hour lapse before results are noted, especially for "healing mode" treatments that are aimed at treating the underlying problem.
DURATION OF TREATMENTS
Treatment times may vary from a few minutes to an hour. Typically 5-10 minutes are sufficient for treatment with hand held probes. Subsequent periods of 5-10 minutes utilizing pad electrodes may follow.
In the case of acute dysfunction, daily treatments will enhance recovery. Think of injured tissue like a depleted battery. The more often electrochemical energy levels in the cells are replenished, the more readily inflammation and pain are diminished. Pain and range of motion may be used as major indicators of recovery, but it is advisable not to stop treatments prematurely before tissues are fully healed.
MBT can be very effective for both immediate pain relief and acceleration of tissue healing. When treating chronic conditions, it is important that MBT be given an adequate trial. Often results are not apparent in the first one or two treatments. Relief of your pain is important, but the goal is to resolve underlying pathology so as to give long lasting or permanent relief. For patients in acute pain with muscle spasm who may require stronger nerve stimulation for initial relief, such stimulation is limited, and followed by MBT, massage and range of motion exercises to establish new muscle memory.
The word teishin signifies a needle-like instrument or probe that does not penetrate the skin. The advantage of this is obvious for people who fear needles.
Puncturing of acupoints became more fashionable during the 1600's with the advent of steel needles.
The purpose of treatment is to heal and protect the "Three Treasures:"
Qi - nourishing, defensive and organ energies
Jing - fluid secretions
Shen - energies of intelligence and awareness
Teishin is used for facial rejuvenation and ear acu-therapy
Documented Effects of Microcurrent
There is a lot that science has learned about how and why microcurrent has such dramatic healing and pain relieving effects. Here are the physiologic effects of microcurrent as confirmed by research studies:
Faster and more efficient wound healing
Boosting Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production, which is the major energy fuel for all the biochemical reactions of the body.
Better bone healing
Helping kill bacterial infection in wounds
Microcurrent may support function of stem cells in healing eye
Polarized microcurrent used to shrink cancerous
Improving circulation of blood and lymph
Tonification of elastic fibers to improve organ functions
Reduction of inflammatory processes in the body
Reduction of degenerative processes through promoting proper function of connective tissues
Restoration of healthy nerve function through polarization effects

Teishin therapy is a Japanese acupuncture style. A Teishin is a special tool with a rounded tip used to stimulate acupuncture points through touch rather than needle insertion. Even though treatments tend to be shorter in duration, the therapy is tremendously effective in treating a wide range of ailments. This treatment is interactive, and the practitioner will be in the room with the patient throughout the entire duration of the treatment. Teishin is a wonderful treatment for patients of all ages, and is ideal for treating children or patients with an aversion to needles.

People often sense that they have emotional issues, but dont know how to get past them. The feelings that seem to be in their way are often due to their trapped emotions. They are usually amazed to find out that their emotional baggage often consists of discrete energies that became trapped during emotional events they experienced in their past. They are even more amazed to see how easily these energies can be found and removed and by how different they feel when they are freed from them.
In the same way that you cannot see the wind, yet you can feel its effects, trapped emotions are invisible and they can exert powerful forces upon you. Trapped emotions can affect you physically just as much as they can mentally and emotionally. It is our belief that a significant percentage of physical illnesses, emotional difficulties and self-sabotage are actually caused by these unseen energies.
The Emotion Code has been created to give you new insight, to show you how trapped emotions can cause all kinds of problems, and give you the means to release them.
Emotion Code treats physical pain and alleviates many diseases. It also works on depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, and many other emotional blocks.
