Traditional Chinese Medicine

Body Acupuncture (20-30 minutes) Details >>>

Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. It's primarily used to relieve pain and tension, strengthen the immune system, and prevent and treat a wide range of conditions. This uses the Oriental approach of targeting specific Meridian and Energy Channels of the body. 

Facial Rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture (45 minutes ~ 1 Hour Details >>>

A natural skin rejuvenation technique that involves the insertion of fine, hair-like needles into the face and body that stimulates the body healing energies,  increases blood flow to the face to reduce your dry skin, wrinkles, fine lines and folds, increases collagen production, helps dark circles and puffy eyes, improves hormonal balance to help acne and scarring, dull complexion, eczema, lifts sagging skin and drooping eyelids, tightens pores and restores youthful glow.  

Abdominal acupuncture 45 minutes  Details >>>
This is a method of acupuncture directed at specific points on the abdomen.  It is commonly used for chronic disorders, such as sequelae of stroke, insomnia, menopausal syndrome, irregular menstruation and simple obesity as  well as  musculoskeletal disorders such as cervical spondylosis, prolapse of lumbar inter vertebral disc (PLID), knee osteoarthritis and shoulder periarthritis. 


Scalp Acupuncture (45 Minutes)  Details >>>
Scalp Acupuncture, also known as Neuroacupuncture, is a treatment based on knowledge of traditional acupuncture and neurology. It is done by inserting acupuncture needles into loose areolar tissue layer of the scalp to stimulate the brain neurons of the underlying area. Since the skull protects the brain and there are no organs in the scalp to injure it is a very safe treatment.

Ear Acupuncture Detoxification Therapy (20 minutes)  Details >>>
Ear acupuncture  is a type of acupuncture that involves inserting needles into specific points on the ear. Stimulating these points is thought to promote healing in other areas of the body.  This is used to improve the body's flow of vital energy (also known as chi or qi) and to restore a balance between yin and yang (two opposing but complementary energies) within the internal organs. 

Acupressure or Tui Na Massage (60 or 120 minutes)  Details >>>

This is to harmonize yin and yang in the body by manipulating the Qi in the acupuncture channels. This includes Acupressure (a blend of "acupuncture" and "pressure.") So if you are afraid of needles, you may be able to get much of the same effect from acupressure. This is the most effective method for treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. 


Cupping Therapy or Bentosa (10 minutes)  Details >>>
This consists of using plastic cups and creating suction and vacuum pressure over localized areas of the body. It helps to release rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins; loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue; and bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles and also helps open up the chest, benefits the lungs and can also benefit menstrual and digestive problems. 


Body Gua Sha or Scraping Therapy (10 minutes)  Details >>>
This is an age old bodywork technique which is still practiced in China and other parts of Asia. The word "Gua" means to scrape and "Sha" from a TCM point of view, refers to the blood stasis or stagnant blood and qi that blocks the meridian pathway that can affect proper flow of energy and blood.  Blood stasis  will accumulate in the subcutaneous tissues.     


Facial Gua Sha (20 minutes)  Details >>>
This was used by the Chinese aristocracy in the fight against wrinkles and skin aging long before the term cosmetic acupuncture came into use. With the help of a special Gua Sha stone, the skin is stimulated in a completely natural way, the production of collagen is stimulated and the formation of wrinkles is prevented. Already after one treatment there is a visibly more vibrant skin and after a few treatments wrinkles become softer. During the treatment, a mask, a serum and skin cream are used. 
Moxibustion or Moxa Therapy (10 Minutes)  Details >>>
This is an acupuncture without needle and a form of heat therapy on certain designated points of the body using  smokeless charcoal sticks to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi or energy in the body, helps to increase blood circulation, stimulate digestive system function and boost the immune system and dispel certain pathogenic influences.


Chinese Reflexology or Foot Massage  (30 minutes)  Details >>>
Heal the body and soothe the sole in my clinic.  Step into the Chinese zone of ancient healing using thumb, finger and hand techniques.  This is to promote relaxation, balance energy throughout the body, improve circulation, reduce pain, soothe tired feet,  eliminate toxins and encourage overall healing. 




 

Massage Therapy

Therapeutic / Deep Tissue  Oil Massage (30/ 90/ 120 Minutes)  Details >>>
This is a relaxing, deeply therapeutic massage incorporating deep tissue, Swedish, acupressure and stretching. It brings balance mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally by using Swedish massage to increase circulation and eliminate toxins, passive yoga therapy or stretching to increase flexibility and range of motion, acupressure to release energy blockages and deep tissue to work on areas of chronic muscular pain or tension.

Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage (30 minutes)  Details >>>

Head, back, neck and shoulders massage is the ideal solution to muscle tension caused by knots or postural problems in the upper body.

Face, Head + Neck Massage (30 minutes)  Details >>>
Give yourself a natural and healthy glow with this underrated beauty secret. Facial massage is a special kind of therapy that uses gentle upward and downward strokes to stimulate blood flow and collagen production under the skin. 



Esalen Massage (120 minutes)  Details >>>
This is a nurturing, flowing massage that incorporates long strokes, gentle rocking, passive joint mobilization stretches, and the flow of breathing. Flowing, light-oiled strokes are intrinsic. This is widely effective for clients seeking pain relief, energy release, or stress reduction. It is especially efficient in bringing back a deeper sense of wholeness in the body and mind. Clothing optional.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (20 minutes)  Details >>> 
This therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.


Soft Touch Relaxation/ Elderly Massage (30 minutes)  Details >>>
Geriatric massage aims at improving specific aging health conditions, such as stiff muscles, limited mobility and chronic pain. As mature skin contains less moisture and is more susceptible to bruising and tearing, geriatric massage therapists use soothing, gentle strokes and mild stretching instead of standard massage pressure. Sessions also are usually shorter, lasting about 30 minutes.

Jet-Lag Recovery Massage (2 hour)  Details >>>
This is the perfect treatment to overcome jet lag and to relieve stiffness, aches and pains. To reduce jet-lag and fatigue I begin with an allover body scrub with an antioxidant Organic salt scrub, followed by a gentle and soothing massage bringing together elements of Swedish massage and with the stimulation of reflex points on the scalp and the feet with a blend of signature oils to increase circulation and reduce swelling, bringing complete serenity to your body and mind.
