A 5,000 year old form of Chinese medicine. Studies are constantly being conducted, to prove as well as disprove the true effects of acupuncture both on a physical and psychological level. Acupuncture heals many illnesses and diseases including pain, digestive orders, menstrual disorders, irritability, fatigue, depression and much more.
The true goal of acupuncture is to bring the body to a simple equilibrium for the body to heal itself working with the Qi, vital force or “intelligent” energy. If a cadaver is sliced open meridians/channels (lines of energy transporting Qi or blood), may not be seen but meridian theory has proved there is a pathway of energy. Meridians are like rivers, where Qi flows, inside of us. In the world of acupuncture there are twelve main yin and yang meridians that have a specific cycles in which they function. The cycles vary in time and elements. The meridian represents an organ, a sensory tissue, a color, a season, a sound, a taste and a color. According to this theory there is a questioning process in which to make a diagnosis. TCM is completely fascinating and makes perfectly complete sense. Although acupuncture or the theory behind it may confuse or intrigue you… Nonetheless it is a perfectly scientific based logical alternative medicine. Please don’t let words describe the effects of acupuncture for you. Come in and see for yourself. Feel your Qi and rivers of energy awaken within you and feel the balanced state of mind and body that you have the potential to attain.

The art of massage therapy has evolved tremendously since if first began around 4,000 years ago. It is hard to imagine that this positive touch medicine has been around for that long but Believe it! As one of the oldest methods of healing, Hippocrates (the father of medicine) referred to massage in 4 century BC when he wrote, “The physician must be acquainted with many things, and assuredly with rubbing.”
The modalities used are neuromuscular re-education, myo-fascial release, orthopedic massage, acupressure and stretching. Deep tissue massage is extremely effective and sought out by chronic pain sufferers. Anyone suffering from chronic or even acute pain can benefit greatly from a massage no matter what modality used. There are times when one modality is more effective that another but the key is to find a therapist that you “connect” with both on a physical and spiritual level. Experiencing a nurturing positive touch is key to the growth and evolution of any human being creating a well-rounded spatial orientation for themselves as well as others.
Of course the benefits of massage include but are not limited to decreased stress, decreased heart rate, increased muscle tone, increased endorphin’s, increase of oxygen both cellular and intra-pleural. Benefits also include decreased cortisol levels enhancing immunity. If you are someone that thinks that massage is just a luxury think again.

Sound Healing Using Crystal Sound Bowls, Tuning Forks, Sound Pipes & Natural Sounds
“Whether or not we hear it, everything has a sound, a vibration all its own,” writes Joshua Leeds in The Power of Sound (Healing Arts Press, 2001).
Have you ever heard of vibrations? Sound Waves? Frequencies? Did you know that cellular repair of DNA has a frequency of 528 megahertz which may mean nothing to you… but what this vibration is doing in healing damaged DNA. (DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a molecule that carries most of the genetic information used in the development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.)
Our DNA is not written in stone, it can be modified due to frequency. Only certain Sound and vibrations can activate your DNA. For example, chanting music produces a large unwinding effect on DNA and allows healing. Studies have been conducted using test tubes, UV light and exposure to music.
Recent research suggests that the influences of certain rhythms, sounds and vibrations can help us resist and recover from a wide variety of ailments.
Now, a growing body of research suggests that when used in a directed way, sound can also help us reduce stress, create a deep sense of well-being and even promote healing.
