Chiropractic
The chiropractic perspective on health and disease emphasizes two fundamental concepts:

* the structure and condition of the body influences how the body
functions and its ability to heal itself; and
* the mind-body relationship is instrumental in maintaining health
and in the healing processes.

Although chiropractic shares much with other health professions, its
emphasis and application of
philosophy distinguishes it from modern
medicine. Chiropractic philosophy gravitates toward a holistic
("total
person") approach to healing which combines elements of the mind, body and spirit and maintains
that health depends on obedience to
natural laws, and that deviation from such laws can result in illness.

Massage Therapy
Massage with a gentle flow of balancing energy.  Techniques include Reiki, rock/crystal healing,
Relaxation, DeepTissue, Trigger Point, Swedish Massage, CranioSacral and Muscle Assessment.

Acupuncture
How does acupuncture work?  Oriental medicine (OM) uses a vital force called “qi” which moves through
and influences the body along specific channels.  Acupuncture stimulates points in the body where qi
accumulates, thus causing changes in the energetics and functions of the body. We use needles to reach
deeper areas where the qi is stronger.  This ensures a better therapeutic result. Your practitioner will
advise you as to the best options available to fit your particular case.

Acupuncture is applicable to any condition, since the OM system treats patterns of imbalance based on
signs and symptoms, rather than strictly defined diseases.  Some disorders TCM is reliably effective in
treating include:  pain syndromes, stress, sequelae of strokes, certain skin disorders, allergies, GERD,
constipation and other GI disorders, dysmennorhea, insomnia, and many other types of biomedical
diagnoses.

Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a natural medicine that has been practiced for over two hundred years. Its approach to
treating disease is distinctly different than allopathic medicine (traditional approach). Allopaths treat a
disease by suppressing symptoms or attempting to eliminate the microbes associated with the condition.
Homeopaths use remedies to stimulate the body's own defenses against the illness.

Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy
The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help resolve the trapped forces that underlie and
govern patterns of disease and fragmentation in both body and mind. This involves the practitioner
"listening through the hands" to the body's subtle rhythms and any patterns of inertia or congestion.
Through the development of subtle palpatory skills the practitioner can read the story of the body, identify
places where issues are held and then follow the natural priorities for healing as directed by the patient¹s
own physiology.

Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is
administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows
through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to
get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Ion Foot Bath
The Ion Cleanse Foot Bath is a popular whole body detoxification method that will fit with a busy lifestyle.  
The typical treatment is 35 minutes, in which you sit with your feet in warm salt water, while the ion pump
sits in the water with your feet.  Over the time that the ionizer is working, the color and consistency of the
water will change, depending on the toxins being removed from your body.

Soul Retrieval
In the Soul Retrieval healing process, we first identify the major causes of loss for the client.  The chakras,
or energy centers of the body, are like “bolts” that connect the physical body to the energy body. We
determine where, in their energy body/chakra system, a trauma has settled, and clear it using “extraction”
techniques.   Also removed are any soul energies (entities) from foreign sources and inappropriate
connections (cords) to other people.
After  clearing  the chakras, the shaman “journeys” into the other worlds to locate and “retrieve” the lost
soul parts, and returns to this world to put the soul parts back into the client (by blowing them into the
chest.)   Information of great use to the client can be obtained during this process, including discovering
the reason the client decided to be born to the life they have, and what they wanted to accomplish with this
incarnation.

Are there any side effects?  Acupuncture needles are very fine, and the needling sensation is no stronger
than mild electric tingling or a dull ache.  This is usually only felt for a few seconds after needles are
placed, and once the needles are removed (20-30 minutes later) the patient should have minimal or no
unusual feeling at all. After needles are removed, there may be slight bruising around an insertion point.  
During and after acupuncture the patient may feel faint due to lowered blood sugar or blood pressure.  
Protocols are in place to deal with these more common hazards, and their threat is minimal.  This is the
extent of side effects in the vast majority of cases; other less common dangers are discussed in the
patient consent form.

Does it work with science-based treatment?  OM is an excellent complementary modality for many
western treatments.  An excellent example of this is the use of OM as adjuvant therapy for chemotherapy.  
Acupuncture and herbs strongly support an immune system weakened by the main therapy, and ease
nausea and other side effects.  Acupuncture used with pain syndromes can help decrease the need for
pain medication.  There are many other similar examples; you are welcome to ask us about these
applications.

What other OM modalities are available besides acupuncture?  OM comprises an entire medical system
with quite a variety of modalities.  We employ TENS units for mild electric stimulation, cupping (application
to the skin of small glass cups with suction), tui na (Chinese medical bodywork), moxibustion (a warming
therapy using a hot coal of herbs held close to the skin), and of course herbal formulas. OM theory also
has a lot to say regarding lifestyle and daily habits, for example diet and exercise.  All our needles are
single-use, sterile packaged, ultra-thin and high quality.
