What I offer



This is a safe treatment involving the insertion of fine sterile and single use needles through the skin. Acupuncture taps into our body’s nervous system and brain waves to rebalance any disharmony.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments

Our custom blended herbs act as a supplement to the acupuncture and speed up the healing process. They nourish and boost your system when it is deficient and treat the symptoms directly while getting to the root of the problem.


Heat-vacuumed glass jars are applied to the muscle to release toxins and tension and enhance circulation. While bruising may occur, it’s not painful or harmful in any way and a great way to speed up your body’s ability to heal.

Heat Treatments with Moxa or a TDP Lamp

These methods are used to warm areas of the body to promote health.

Electro Acupuncture

A mild electric micro-current similar to a TENS treatment may be used to stimulate the acupuncture points. A mild tingling or tapping sensation will be felt during treatments. This extra stimulation can speed up the healing process.


Therapeutic manipulation by fingertips of certain acupoints, muscles, and tendons.

Gua Sha

Light scraping on the skin in a small area using a smooth-edged instrument. This often results in bruising of the treated area. The bruising, which is not painful, usually resolves in 3-7 days.

Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture

Extra fine needles inserted on the face and surrounding areas promote detoxification and improve circulation and blood flow to the face. The improved flow allows the facial muscles to be nourished and to relax, smoothing out any wrinkles or lines. Facial acupuncture also stimulates collagen production and improves skin elasticity.

Arvigo Maya Abdominal Massage

Arvigo Maya abdominal massage has many benefits for women’s health issues as it brings healthy, fresh blood to the area with gentle massage. It helps the titled or prolapsed uterus by employing gentle manual manipulation for proper alignment which can improve circulation, fertility, and any scarring. Moving the blood and lymph while realigning the uterus with gentle massage allows for:

  • Painless menses
  • Increased fertility
  • Easier pregnancy and birth
  • Postpartum issues

Holistic Pelvic Care

HPC is a system developed by Tami Kent, MSPT, to assess and treat common pelvic floor issues. These issues are generally seen with women in the postpartum phase or following a trauma.

HPC works on an energetic and physical level and uses a combination of breathwork, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release to address common issues in the vagina and pelvic floor. It can help with:

  • Vaginismus
  • Rectoceles
  • Cystoceles
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Bladder and vaginal infections
  • Menstrual pain
  • Pain during sex

HPC is an effective approach for women in all stages of life.

Craniosacral Therapy For Newborns

Craniosacral therapy (CST) for newborns is very safe and gentle. The pressure exerted is about five grams or the weight of a nickel. It can be especially helpful for:

  • Babies who have endured long or difficult births or where there is considerable head moulding
  • Babies having issues with breastfeeding/latching
