In my experience...
the best results come when I treat the client as a whole person. When I do this, everything comes together. My clients leave feeling relaxed and uplifted and usually with significant improvement of the symptoms they came in with.
A typical session
A typical 60 minute session begins with an INTAKE to gather all the pertinent information about your condition. In addition to asking questions, traditional pulse and tongue diagnosis will be performed to ascertain the root of your illness. A full ACUPUNCTURE treatment follows, with the comfortable insertion of hair-fine stainless steel needles. Artisan ESSENTIAL OILS may also be applied to various acupoints based on their energetic and physiologic actions according to traditional Chinese medicine. If appropriate to your situation, therapeutic LINIMENTS may also be used, and TRADITIONAL CHINESE HERBS may be recommended to enhance and extend the treatment effects. If you do not wish to receive acupuncture, you can opt for essential oil-enhanced acupressure therapy. Alternatively, if you are sensitive to scents, you may receive acupuncture alone, without aromatherapy.
If this is your first visit, an extra 30 minutes will be scheduled for a thorough intake and health history.
