Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can bring the body into balance and assist in the healing process through the regulation of qi (energy), blood and fluid in the body. In TCM, we recognize that a balance of qi is essential to health and harmony in the body. When this qi (energy) is blocked or stagnated in any way, the body’s lines of communication (meridians) are weakened and disease or pain results. Acupuncture removes the blockages and obstruction, stimulates the immune system, and harmonizes emotions. When needles are places in specific intramuscular locations, they stimulate the nociceptive proprioceptors and trigger the release of neurotransmitters in the brain that can, among other things, reduce pain and inflammation, and stimulate healing in the body’s tissues.

 

Nutrition Response Testing

Hippocrates, considered the father of medicine, said “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a scientific analysis of the body’s reflexes that shows the body’s underlying weaknesses and corrects them through whole food nutrition. The causes of recurring health issues are uncovered by applying gentle and precise stimulation to specific sites on the body. An analysis of the body’s feedback allows us to design a supplement program using the highest quality nutritional formulas to return the body to homeostasis, balance and allow the body to heal itself gently and naturally.

 

Somatic Experiencing Trauma Therapy

The sources of trauma are wide-ranging; these include natural disasters, exposure to violence, accidents, falls, serious illness, sudden loss of a loved one, surgeries, medical and dental procedures, childhood neglect or abuse, difficult births, and even high levels of stress and toxicity during gestation in the womb. Somatic Experiencing, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, is a gentle therapy for resolving and discharging unresolved survival energies, thereby healing the physical and emotional symptoms of trauma. Our sessions offer a non-evasive and non-judgemental environment for coping with, and eliminating, the debilitating effects of trauma.
