Ready for Relief?

You’re in the right place.

Under a lot of pressure? Want to release your stress, anxiety, pain?

Done. Start feeling like yourself again with some acupuncture and cupping.

You might be thinking: “I thought acupuncture was just for things like back and neck pain. How does it work for stress and anxiety? Or is it just the placebo effect?”

That’s a common misconception. Here’s your bottom line:

A 2018 systematic review of clinical research on acupuncture for anxiety disorders reveals that “there is good scientific evidence for acupuncture therapy to treat anxiety disorders as it yields effective outcomes, with fewer side effects than conventional treatment.”

Into using herbs?

Great! Chinese Herbal Medicine gets your body back into balance.

Curious about understanding the emotions/beliefs connected to your symptoms?

Awesome. That’s my passion. Prepare to be blown away when you hear what your body is telling you about the unconscious beliefs that have been holding you back.

Suffering from PTSD and/or scar tissue?

Craniosacral worked like a dream for me.  Trust me, you’ll love it too. It’s a gentle, hands-on technique that releases emotional trauma from your body, and also softens and minimizes any scar tissue. Added bonus: It feels unbelievably relaxing.
