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.

Herbal Consultation

Herbal supplements available for an additional charge.

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.
