Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese Healing Art that is derived from the oriental theory of opposites, the male and female energies known as Yin and Yang. Fine needles are inserted at specific points along the body’s subtle energy conduits known as “meridians”, hence restoring the body’s balance. It can be used for stress management, pain relief, injury, fatigue, nausea, sleep disorders, digestive disorders, aphasia, chemical dependency, weight loss and many other chronic diseases or ailments. The experience is painless and often there is a sense of blissful relaxation and deep renewal at the end of the session.
Ayurveda is the ancient healing science from India that sees the universe in terms of tastes, energies and pairs of opposite qualities most centrally exemplified in the constitution of the individual. People are seen as single or mixed in terms of their “Doshas” (literally ‘fault’) predominating as air (Vata), fire (Pitta) or water (Kapha), each with its own qualities. Through diet, massage, herbs and other healing modalities, the therapist works to balance these elements to promote harmony within the mind, body and spirit.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of “like is cured by like.” Diseases and conditions are treated through various dilutions of toxins which trigger the body’s natural defenses. Properly applied, they are capable of reinstating blocked enzyme systems and thus re-stimulating the process of detoxification. Remedies may be given in a single or combination of dilutions and are available in liquid, powder or tablet form. Homeopathic remedies are available for many conditions such as: arthritis, inflammation, allergies, digestive problems, IBS, PMS, hot flashes and many more.
