ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a short-term naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma developed by Dr. Peter Levine. The development of the technique was inspired by the observation that wild prey animals, though threatened routinely, are rarely traumatized. Animals in the wild utilize innate mechanisms to regulate and discharge the high levels of energy arousal associated with defensive survival behaviors. These mechanisms provide animals with a built-in “immunity’’ to trauma that enables them to return to a normal state following highly ‘’charged’’ life-threatening experiences.

SE employs awareness of body sensation to help people “renegotiate” and heal rather than re-live or re-enact trauma. Through guidance of the bodily “felt sense,” highly aroused survival energies are safely experienced and gradually discharged. SE may employ touch in support of the renegotiation process. SE “titrates” experience (breaks down into small, incremental steps), rather than evoking catharsis – which can overwhelm the regulatory mechanisms of the organism.  SE can result in a number of benefits to you, such as relief of traumatic stress symptoms, increased resiliency, and resourcefulness. Joe is in his second of the three year training to receive his Somatic Experiencing Practitioner title.

Craniosacral Unwinding

Craniosacral Unwinding is a system of gentle touch designed to enhance the functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding or associated with the brain and spinal cord.  It is a very powerful energy medicine that helps heal trauma, move forward in life when feeling stuck, and deepen your sense of connection with yourself. This 60 minute session consists of an initial dialog about where you are in life and intentions for the session, followed by the hands on therapy. The practitioner moves between the poles of employing specific protocols to elicit a desired physiological response to moving intuitively to areas of the body that are asking for care. Learn more…

Intuitive Communication

An intuitive communication session is a 60 minute one on one conversation intended to help shed light on blockages that are between you and what you are wanting to manifest in your life.  We are all energetic beings moving toward the next step on our journey.  By energetically looking at the layers of your aura and your chakras, you will start to realize that there are patterns of behavior or past time energy that could be getting between you and your highest creative, productive, or spiritual self.  Just the act of engaging in an intuitive communication will begin to shift your awareness towards your highest good, thereby opening up space for release, movement, and understanding.

Schedule Now

Herbal Consultation

This service is offered for clients seeking to obtain a diagnosis and herbal prescription from a highly herbalist without receiving acupuncture care.  Our practitioner will obtain information about your health concern and prescribe a custom herbal formulation to address your condition. Herbal supplements available for an additional charge.

Schedule Now

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of healing in which a local suction is created on the skin; this therapy increases blood flow in order to promote healing and enhance immunity.  This service is offered as an add-on to acupuncture care, and also offered as a stand-alone service.
