Chinese Herbal Consultation

We conduct our sessions using the ancient Chinese method of tongue & pulse diagnosis. For distant consults you simply take a good quality picture of your tongue (a smartphone picture will suffice) and send it to us by text or e-mail. Using our TCM knowledge, we can accurately diagnose any imbalances or conditions that are present in your body. We are here to help people understand Taoist Chinese Medicine, and the underlying reasons behind physical conditions. Once the reasons have been identified (for example, reason behind hair loss may be weak kidney Qi), we can prescribe an herbal formula that is custom made from 6 to 10 kinds of herbal extract powders. Patent formulas, teas, and herbal tinctures are also available and may be prescribed in addition or instead of the powdered formulas as per patients needs. Our Chinese herbal extract is the best quality in the US. In order to ensure the highest quality and purity, each batch is tested by U.S. laboratories. We also may suggest dietary and lifestyle changes, focusing on how to incorporate Qi Gong into daily life and how to remain in the moment. Qi Gong, like all of TCM is based on an ancient Taoist philosophy which is all about going with the flow of nature. Often times to see lasting change it can take from 1-3 months of treatment. Working with nature’s medicine is all about going with the cycles of life. Changing long standing patterns of excess or deficiency do not happen overnight. Common wisdom is a month for every year of disharmony. That being said certain symptoms can be alleviated within 48-72 hours especially if they are acute like a cold, flu, sprain, or strain etc. Chinese herbs have been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of conditions including but not limited to auto-immmune disease, cancer, lyme’s disease, chron’s, heartburn, digestive disorders, pain, inflammatory conditions, headaches, back aches, knee pain, heart conditions, sleep disorders, gynecological issues, asthma, and more. They can be used to supplement or improve the effect of medications while also reducing side effects. Herb prices will vary depending on the condition and how long treatment is needed.

Emotional Support Sessions with EFT

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). It is best known through Gary Craig's EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990s, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. EFT and similar techniques are often discussed under the umbrella term "energy psychology". These techniques may be used to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders, and as a simple form of self-administered therapy. By tapping a series of accupoints combined with directed affirmations, this modality opens up the ancient Chinese philosophy of chi, which is thought to be the 'life force' that flows throughout the body so healing can occur. These emotional support sessions are designed to help give you the tools to overcome anxiety, fear, depression, sadness, anger, and other emotions that may be holding you back in your life. Let go of what does not serve you anymore so you can live your true self embracing the freedom that life has to offer for you! Sessions can be done through zoom or facetime.

Fire Cupping Session

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People receive cupping for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), cupping is done to dispel stagnation (stagnant blood and lymph), thereby improving qi flow, in order to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis. Cupping also is used on back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions. Cupping is not advised, in TCM, over skin ulcers or to the abdominal or sacral regions of pregnant women This unique cupping session also includes crystal therapy, auriculotherapy, aromatherapy, and sound healing Fire cupping is done by putting a small flame from a cotton swab into the glass cup for a second and putting the cup directly on the skin. The heat creates the suction which pulls out toxins and boosts the immune system. It also moves blood, and improves circulation to aid the heart and spleen. Cupping can also help with disturbances of menses and digestion. Cupping can go 4 inches deep into the body to pull out toxins from the liver and kidneys. Cupping can also be done with plastic, silicon, or glass cups that use a suction gun to be applied.

Auriculotherapy (Ear Reflexology) Session

Auriculotherapy (also auricular therapy, ear acupuncture, and auriculoacupuncture) is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a micro system, which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. This 30 minute auriculotherapy session includes crystal therapy, aromatherapy, and sound healing. The ear is a homunculus a part of your body that represents your whole body. There are over 300 acupuoints in the ear. There are nerve endings that specifically correlate to areas of the body. The way they are administered is to use an ear probe that does not break the skin or go into the ear canal. A small indent is made at the acupoint and then a seed is placed using a hemostat in that space. The seed is covered with a small band-aid. Vaccaria seeds are used for neutral conditions, gold is used for nourishing- to bring energy to an area, silver is used to drain energy away-especially inflammation, and magnets are used to get to an area quick and with power. The points are very small and mostly go unnoticed while they are in your ear. The beauty of the ear acupoint seeds vs. needles is that they can stay on for over a week and continue to help you versus having to take the needles out once the session is over. Auriculotherapy is a great way to get instant relief from headaches, back, hip, neck, shoulder, knee pain etc. It is also a great way to get to the internal organs of the body. Ear acupoints can also help with insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues. There are specific protocol to help with addiction. Many people have been helped to quit smoking and overcome drug addictions using auriculotherapy.

Tong Ren Therapy Long Distance Session

For this session we use a Tong Ren doll, a crystal grid, sound healing instruments, chanting, and meditation techniques. The Tong Ren healing system was created by Master Tom Tam. Tong Ren combines eastern and western philosophies using Carl Jung’s theory on the collective subconscious mind and acupuncture meridians. Tong Ren therapy uses a magnetic acupuncture hammer and an acupuncture model doll. Tong Ren Therapy is based on the power of our mind creating energy for healing. The source of this energy is from the collective unconscious, which is connected to the super conscious. When we practice Tong Ren, the focusing of our mind comes from our subconscious and unconscious. This use of the mind with the hammer technique facilitates the breaking down of blockages, which can then let energy pass within the body freely. The bio electric system of the body becomes opened allowing for healing to occur. With Tong Ren healing, we do not need to think or focus on the breaking down of the blockages, because the thought has already been stored as memory in our subconscious mind. Using this hammer technique tapping on the doll, we simply focus on specific points and meridians to promote healing. We start by getting into a grounded meditative state. Then we assess what diseases or disorder you have and then tap to open up your energy field. Chanting, Sound Healing, and Crystals amplify the tapping experience. We close the session with an inspirational reading or with the picking of an angel card to assist you on your healing journey. Sessions can be done through zoom or facetime.

Ionizing Detox Footbath

What are the benefits of detox foot baths? Purging of heavy metals A more balanced pH level Reducing inflammation Purging of yeast Detoxifying the liver Internal cleansing with full-body purgeLiver, kidney, and parasite cleansing Enhancing the immune system Who can benefit from ionic detox foot baths? This is a safe therapy for anyone over the age of 10 years, except for those who wear a pacemaker or have seizures. This is suggested therapy for people who have accumulated many stored toxins and are not able to get rid of them efficiently, due to overworked liver, spleen, and kidney functions. This is especially recommended therapy for those who take a lot of medications. The ionic detox foot bath does not eliminate beneficial medications from the body. What is an ionic detox foot bath? An ionic detox foot bath is a natural method of assisting the body in eliminating harmful toxins, heavy metals, and other harmful foreign matter. What can I expect after a detox foot bath session? Most people will feel relaxed, balanced, and focused. There is usually no pain. People who suffer from excessive toxicity may experience some discomfort as their bodies release toxins from the tissues for elimination. After a detox foot bath, clients are encouraged to drink plenty of water to assist with making elimination easier and more comfortable. Some people may experience fatigue or headache after a session. What is a detox foot bath session like? During a session the client sits in a comfortable chair. Most individuals find the experience VERY relaxing and it is not unusual for the client to fall asleep. The session takes about 30–40 minutes. Some people may experience a slight tickling or tingling sensation from the ionic detox foot bath but it will subside after some modification if needed. How does an ionic detox foot bath work? Electrical current passes through a set of plates in a module that is immersed in the water inside the foot bath tub. The foot bath water contains a special sea salt, so it has the mineral concentration of water from the ocean. While the client's feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the foot bath system. This re-energizes the body and the red blood cells. It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body's lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session. How do ionic detox foot baths balance molecules? The major health objective is to have healthy cell molecules. There must be a balance of positive and negative ions in cells and molecules. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, the atoms and molecules become positively-charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively-charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through the feet provides a full-body purge of all vital organs. This can alleviate menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne,
sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, wrinkles, aches and pains, and yeast infections. The internal cleansing can also contribute to faster disease healing and injury recovery. Due to a busy and stressful lifestyle, many people do not eat a balanced diet. They may end up storing excessive quantities of toxins and waste products in their bodies. During a detoxifying foot bath session, ions from the module enter the body and begin to neutralize tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis. How many detox foot baths will I need? It is suggested that you begin with a total of 6 sessions over a 3–5 week period to maximize detoxification. After these initial sessions, you can switch to monthly sessions. Packages of 3 or 6 are available upon request for a discount. How quickly can I expect results for my condition? This will depend on your personal condition, lifestyle, and your willingness to take responsibility for your health. The frequency of the detox foot bath sessions also plays a role in how quickly results are achieved.
