Acupuncture is a holistic medicine that has been practiced for well over 3000 years. In its system, the practitioner doesn’t treat the symptom, he treats the patient. Two people could show the same symptoms caused by very different things in each respective patient and therefore will need to be treated in different ways. However, the goal remains the same: to return the body back to a state of harmony. In acupuncture, practitioners view the body as an interconnected webbing, much like the fascia that surrounds our organs and bones, and practitioners use various systems like the Meridian system (pathways that supply Qi all around the body) and Zang-Fu Organ system, to view the body in this holistic way. The modalities used can vary depending on patient need; however needling, needling with electro-stimulation, cupping, gua sha, tui na, herbology and nutrition are applied to facilitate change. In acupuncture, you are the healer, the needle (or whatever form of modality) is the connection to the practitioner, who is there to tell your body what it needs to be doing to perform in an optimal way.

Reflexology is an ancient healing art originating in China around 3000 B.C. It is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet (and hands) which correspond to every part, organ, and gland of the body. Specific pressure is applied to precise reflex points, activating the body's inherent healing power. Reflexology may reduce stress and tension, relieve pain, and restore the body to a better state and improve physical well being. European Reflexology uses new techniques specific to body systems. Some of the treatments offered deal with digestion, allergies, back pain, diabetes, thyroid balancing, maternity, facial reflexology and meridian reflexology.
