Acupuncture Classical Chinese Medicine is a medical healing art with an elegant approach to complicated health issues. It has a rich history of more than 2,000 years of clinical application with a philosophy that believes in empowering the body to function correctly to address disease. Chinese culture is greatly influenced by holism rather than reductionism and holds the perspective that human beings are a part within the universe, not an entity separate from it. Acupuncture works by directing, unblocking, tonifying, or reducing the qi which allows the practitioner to improve specific functions of the body. In essence, acupuncture allows the body to function better. When the body functions correctly, symptoms such as menstrual pain, insomnia, intestinal disorders, headaches, sprains and strains, or fatigue resolve without the use of conventional drugs. Acupuncture can also be used to prevent disease, maintain health, relax and rejuvenate. Licensed Acupuncturists: 

Bodytalk BodyTalk is a healing system that uses your whole life as a resource base for natural self-healing.  The interactions and events in your unique life weave an intricate web of communications that your system uses to maintain its balance.  When all is running smoothly, your brain efficiently scans and makes adjustments in its balancing web.  The harmony of all the balance points on the web, woven together, form optimal health.   But stress disrupts the natural balance, causing inefficiency in the web of communications, which results in disharmony and vulnerability to illness and unhappiness. Using the BodyTalk protocol, we deeply listen to your body-mind-spirit’s natural wisdom in order to gently repair and reweave the web, returning it to optimal healing efficiency.  As the web is strengthened, you experience healing that addresses your very specific situation. Although no two sessions are alike, clients report deep relaxation, pain relief, greater clarity, practical approaches to life challenges, and an overall sense of well-being.

Research shows it reduces the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. Therapeutic massage may enhance medical treatment will help people feel less anxious and stressed, relaxed yet more alert. Massage therapy improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.

Naturopathic Medicine Dr. Laura has been a licensed practitioner in the state of California since 2007. Her practice focuses on digestive issues, hormone imbalances, including thyroid, adrenals (fatigue and stress), menstrual imbalances, perimenopause, and menopause. However, she does work with other diagnoses. As a naturopathic doctor, she may order and perform physical and laboratory examinations for diagnostic purposes. Naturopathic medicine is different in treatment from allopathic in that the cause is being looked for and addressed and the use of herbs, food, vitamins and minerals, homeopathic remedies, dietary supplements, enzymes, nutraceuticals, amino acids, and nonprescription drugs are used. The goal is to help the body return to a place of balance for optimal health and enjoyment of life. Naturopathic Doctor:

Reiki  Reiki, pronounced ray-kee, is the Japanese word for “universal life energy”. Ki is the vital energy force purported to flow through all things. This energy is channeled through the crown chakra of the Reiki practitioner and out through the palms. The practitioner is only like the reed through which the energy flows and not the originating source. The more a Reiki practitioner channels outward for the greater good, the more universal energy is introduced into the practitioner’s own system for his/her own healing purposes. This method of energy healing facilitation is mutually beneficial to both client and practitioner. For some, feeling Reiki energy for the first time is nothing short of miraculous…it’s warm and tingly and immediately places them in a deeply relaxed meditative state. If a person chooses, Reiki can be a deeply transformative experience in their own understanding of how things really work in this universe to which all things belong. Reiki Master/Teachers: 

Yoga ~ Hatha  Yoga is the experience of oneness or unity with your inner being. Hatha Yoga is derived from two root words, ‘ha’ meaning Sun and ‘tha’ meaning Moon. Through breath and the practice of yoga postures (asanas) a state of being can be attained in which you feel peaceful, steady and calm. This quiet state enables you to experience a deep connection with your eternal self and Life. In each yoga posture, through your breath, you are increasing the flow of your Prana (life force). This increased flow of energy not only helps you to revitalize, recharge and replenish your bodymind on a cellular level, but it also helps you to open your energy centers (chakras). As your energy centers open, you experience more vitality, vibrancy and expansiveness. Certified Yoga Instructor: 

Tuina Tuina is an oriental Bodywork Therapy that has been used in China for 2,000 years. Tuina uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques Tuina seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body to naturally heal itself. In a typical session, the client, wearing loose clothing and no shoes, lies on a table or floor mat. The practitioner examines the specific problems of the client and begins to apply a specific treatment protocol. The major focus of application is upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, and muscles and joints. Tuina Practitioner:
