Tui Na

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases.


Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.


Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy

Biodynamic Cranial Sacral therapy is a non-invasive therapy that relies upon the observation of cranial rhythm to support the health in the body.  BCST combines well with Acupuncture and is often used alone to achieve a deep relaxed and integrated state.

Lymph Drainage Therapy

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT), is an elegant approach to engendering fluid movement in the body to resolve complex health concerns. It is a very gentle and profoundly effective approach.  LDT relies upon the anatomical understanding of Lymph pathways and the stimulation of lymph movement.
