Chronic Disease Treatments
A treatment protocol based on Chronic Disease. Disease's such as Lupus, MS, Lymes, RA, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and ALS, are a few diseases treated using this protocol. Most patients I treat with chronic diseases want to understand the " why" I have this. What happened to my body? I treat the body based on a Eastern and Western protocol. I will be looking at Hormones, Emotional Trauma, Heavy Metals, Fungus, Mold, Parasites, Protozoa, Bacterial, Viral, Tic Bourne diseases, Mineral and Vitamin deficiencies. This treatment protocol will consist of Acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology, Herbal formula's, Detox protocols, Diet, along with quieting the mind through meditation.
Acupuncture is a form of healing that corrects inbalances of energy in different meridians or pathways on the body. In certain parts of the body congestion can occur making it hard for the flow of energy to move properly through the body. This creates the pain or inbalance. By inserting needles in specific points on the body we are able to release the stagnation and start to promote the healing process. Acupunture can be used for a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders to digestive complaints. Rehabilitation due to sports injury, trauma or pre and post surgical procedures. Acupuncture can also help with addictions. I use a variety of Traditional base Chinese acupuncture (TCM), and Japanese acupuncture, Myofascial release (finding tender spots), and Auricular acupuncture. These different approaches will be tailored for specific conditions. The treatment you receive will always include another form of modality. This can include moxa, cupping, or ear acupuncture.
Allergies that are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Oriental medical principles.
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitinity of one person to one or more substances which may be harmless to the majority of people. In the allergic person, the allergic substance, known as an allergen, is viewed by the immune system as a threat to the body's well-being. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians. This disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body's electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system.
This blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response. Energy work is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. I work directly with your energy field to restore balance and flow to your entire system. And once your energy field has been restored to full health, your body will follow.
Some might think that lying with needles in them for 20 minutes might not appeal to everyone. On the other hand, Hormonal Replacement Therapy often employed to make menopause more bearable-has some problems of its own, including an increase risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and breast cancer. Often menopause comes with a wide range of unpleasant symptoms, such as insomnia, anxiety, irritability, night sweats, and of course hot flashes.
Hot flashes are the single most common symptom reported by woman going through menopause. This condition is characterized by sudden feeling of intense heat combined with excessive perspiration and a rapid heartbeat. Hot flashes can occur several times per day lasting anywhere between 2 to 30 minutes. Acupuncture and Energy Corrective work will be used to balance hormones.
Cupping and Moxibustion
Cupping is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine. Glass cups are warmed and placed over a specific area of healing. This method is used to stimulate blood flow in an area that might be stagnant. This also allows for the free flow of qi, breaks up obstruction(adhesions), and allows an avenue of toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese treatment that involve the burning of mugwort to facilitate healing. The purpose of moxa is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi and to maintain general health. This is a warming treatment use to bring healing cells to the areas of application.

Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
