What Types Of Treatment Do We Provide?
EFT ( Emotional Freedom Techniques): This is an Alternative Intervention Technique utilizing the tapping of Acupuncture points while a client focuses on specific issues. This helps connect the right and left hemispheres of the brain, creating new neuro-pathways to help address belief systems that contribute to physical, mental and emotional imbalances
Moxabustion: This unique herb stimulates blood circulation and is well known for its efficacy to turn a baby that is Breech.
Flower Essences: Developed by the English Physician Dr. Edward Bach, Flower Essences along with Homeopathics enjoy a reputation of being highly beneficial and safe to use. They can be presented in liquid or sugar pill form. This modality helps to nourish the spirit, just as food sustains the human body. For those Women whom want to stay away from all herbs and pharmaceuticals, Flower Essences are a safe and effecttive alternative.
Custom Formulas: After an initial consultation our pracitioners will continue to research your specific needs and formulate a capulated or tea formula.
Visualization & Affirmations: There is a large body of scientific evidence showing that the mind and body are closing linked. A fact that has been known for thousands of years in Traditional Medicine. Physical patterns are created in sympathy with mental patterns.
Acupuncture: Gaining ground in North America, Acupuncture can raise Serotonin Levels, balance the Immune and Endocrine System and provide mental and emotional support while calming the mind. Scientific evidence has shown it to be effective for pain, constipation, nausea, etc.
Holistic Nutrition: Focuses on Natural Whole Food consumption addressing deficiencies through dietary sources. We recommend you follow one primary rule when choosing foods; consume foods as close to it’s original source as possible.
Acutonics: Much like Physiotherapists use Ultrasound to relieve pain we use the "original" version; tuning forks. Sound vibration in treament draws more blood and oxygen to the area, supporting healing and calming the mind. Intuitively we know sound heals through singing and listening. A unique treatment protocol that once experienced even the cynic won’t rival.
