Eastern Medicine

Acupuncture

The earliest record of Acupuncture is from nearly 3,000 years ago…It has withstood the test of time, and its wisdom is ancient and true.

There are 13 main channels of energy or meridians, and my goal as a practitioner of Eastern Medicine is to bring harmony to these systems, using the ancient healing principles of Yin and Yang in combination with modern Integrative Medicine. It is my goal to put your mind at ease, using gentle needling techniques and energetic means to achieve harmony for my clients. The initial consultation includes a full client history, acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, and herbal medicine recommendations.

Pediatric Acupuncture

During grad school, I was blessed to have my internship be at the Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles (CHLA). It was here that I initially learned Japanese Style Acupuncture, specifically Kiiko Matsumoto’s teachings. This style of Acupuncture is specifically great for children because it uses minimal needless, or “whiskers” as we would call them at CHLA. I have continued studying this particular technique for many years now and I am happy to say that I feel comfortable and confident treating young children for a variety of symptoms ranging from the common cold to childhood cancers or spectrum/behavioral disorders.

Facial Acupuncture

The focus of facial acupuncture is to increase blood flow and therefore, collagen, to the face and neck areas. It is amazing to see results over a handful of treatments (a lot of clients like to take their before and after pictures!). It is less invasive than botox or other forms of skin rejuvenation and often less expensive as well. I also use gua sha tools, facial cupping, and Earthtonics incredible organic skin care line to help redefine what it means to nourish your skin.

90 min Acupuncture

Several patients have been requesting a longer treatment this past year, and thus I have decided to make it happen. This treatment will include front and back Acupuncture treatment, with cupping and/or moxibusion, depending on the patients needs in that moment.

 

This is ideal for those individuals who are at the point where they benefit most from a “maintenance” treatment and do not need weekly or bi-monthly treatments.

Community Acupuncture

It is with great love that we open our doors to community acupuncture every Friday from 3-6pm, beginning September 1st. Within this offering is the soul desire to make holistic healthcare more accessible and affordable to all. Treatments are held in a group setting where we'll briefly have time to chat about what you're feeling called to heal before beginning your session. The acupuncture treatment will be given while you are seated or lying back in a reclining chair, and we make sure to keep everyone spaced comfortably apart. The needles will be gently inserted in easy to reach places - scalp, ears, arms, hands, lower legs. In the background, you can expect to have meditative music playing to facilitate a calm state of mind as we all return to a familiar, transformative silence together. Once all the needles are in and you've found your peace, all you have to do is relax and receive.

A part of the beauty of community acupuncture is the collectively created energetic field that forms when a group of souls comes together to re-connect and heal. This can help individuals go deeper with their treatment in powerful ways.

So join me for a moment of presence, healing and connection every Friday from 3-6pm beginning on September 1st. Available by appointment or walk-in.


Initial appointments are $45-$60, and then followups are $30-$50 sliding scale, pay what you can!
