What is Acupuncture?

How does Acupuncture work?

The life energy (gi or chi) between the complimentary extremes of yin and yang is said to flow through 14 meridians or chakras (pathways) and is balanced in a healthy person.  Illness results when one or several meridian(s) or chakra(s) is (are) blocked.  By unblocking the chakras or meridians, balance between yin and yang is restored and, as neuroscience has proven, the body’s natural functions and painkillers are stimulated.  Through acupuncture, an ill person is on his/her way to better health.

Iridology

What is it?

It is an accurate, non-invasive system of health analysis whereby one can see inside the body by looking at the iris.  As our body chemistry changes so does the iris.  There is a connection between the brain, eyes and the body via the nervous system.  The iris has a reflex action which corresponds to specific changes of tissue in the body, thus making the eyes accurate indicators of many health problems (e.g. diabetes; stroke; anemia; goiter). By detecting a weakness in any organ, nutritional and supplemental regimens are recommended.  The result is an improvement in overall health.

Reflexology

What is it? FYI:

The application of tactile stimulation on feet, hands and ears as it corresponds to every part, gland, and organ of the body.

How will it help me?

Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, reduces stress, induces deep relaxation, revitalizes energy, and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.  It is a way to achieve better health without the use of drugs.

Consultations are free.
