Acupuncture: Originating in China 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is a system of healing based on balancing the body’s life force energy known as Qi. Qi flows along channels throughout the body, similar to the nervous and circulatory systems. An imbalance in the body’s energy may result in distress signals in the form of symptoms, physical, emotional or mental. An acupuncturist is trained to evaluate the underlying cause of a client’s problems or symptoms. Treating the person’s basic constitution as well as alleviating the symptoms is part of the treatment plan. Using thin, sterile, disposable needles, the acupuncturist inserts the needles along specific points of the meridian pathways to help balance and unblock the Qi.

Chinese Herbology: Chinese herbal medicine is used in conjunction with acupuncture to support the healing process. The herbs are based on classical Chinese formulas and are dispensed in pill or tincture form.

Reiki: Reiki (Universal Life Force) is an ancient and powerful form of healing which is applied with the hands. Reiki treats the mind, body, emotions and spirit. It brings more life, vitality, clarity, wellness and peace of mind. Reiki aids in the healing process and brings relief from stress and pain.

Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage: The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage™ are centered around ancient Mayan techniques which reposition organs that have dropped and restricted the flow of blood, lymph, nerve & chi energy. As with any other natural healing, Arvigo Techniques seek to restore the body to it’s natural balance.

Childbirth: Acupuncture has been successfully used for morning sickness and labor induction. During labor, acupuncture can be administrated to reduce pain and promote relaxation. Moxibustion, stimulating acupuncture points with heat, has been used for centuries to encourage a breech fetus to turn. For greatest success, this method is used between weeks 32 and 35.
