Gwasha & Cupping: These therapies are great for chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, back, rib muscles, hips, arms and legs. These muscular parts of the body can develop a build up of toxins and knots in the tissues that can be removed using a massage oil and rubbing the muscle with the back of a Chinese soup spoon or the aid of a suction cup. The toxins come out on the surface so the bloodstream can eliminate them over the next few days. This gives pain relief and greater range of motion. These techniques are also used to remove toxins from the lungs due to smoking or respiratory infection. Half hour session $50
Aromatherapy Consultation: Essential oils can be diffused into a room, used in a bath, applied topically, inhaled directly, or sometimes even taken internally for a wide variety of health issues.

These sessions may range from an extra 1/2 an hour with your acupuncture or other treatment, to an hour or hour and a half separate individual or couples session. If needed we will give you a referral to a holistic psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, social worker, shamanic healer or psychic healer. $50/$90/$140
