Mini-Stress Acupuncture Treatment
A very effective Acupuncture treatment to stop smoking, weight loss, anxiety, depression, post traumatic
stress disorder and detoxification. In Chinese medicine, the ear is a micro system for the rest of the body.
The theory is similar to reflexology of the hand or foot, or iridology. The entire anatomical body is manifest
in the ear. Needles placed in the ear stimulate the corresponding body part and affect the sympathetic
nervous system. Mentally and emotionally, ear acupuncture promotes feeling calm, clear and alert.
Your practitioner may send you home with ear seeds. These are small black Vaccaria seeds secured to the
outer ear by a piece of tape. They are like “time-release acupuncture” and provide continued stimulation for
4-7 days after your treatment. Pressing or massaging the ear seeds will activate them
The ear is compared to an upside-down fetus, with the head on the lower ear lobe, the feet at the top of the
ear, and the rest of the body in-between. There are up to 200 acupuncture points on the outer ear, each
point named after an anatomic area or body part, such as lung, heart, knee and mouth.

Chinese Herbal and Nutritional Consultation
What are Chinese herbs?
Chinese herbs are natural time-tested remedies made up of plant, mineral and animal parts used to create
balance in the body. These herbs were traditionally boiled into a tea. But due to the bitter taste and
inconvenience of boiling tea for an hour, the herbs are more readily available in pill, capsule, tincture or
How are Chinese herbs different from Western pharmaceuticals?
Chinese herbs treat the root cause of your illness and not just your symptoms. Most medicinal plants contain
an active component, as well as other chemical components that balance any potential side effects. When
the active chemical in a plant is isolated and concentrated, other important compounds that balance the
effects are lost. Western medications often work very quickly, but can have unpleasant side effects. Most
Chinese herbs have no side effects when used in their whole plant form. They must be taken consistently for
one week to several months, depending on the ailment. Because the plant is in its whole form, Chinese
herbs must be consumed in larger doses and more frequently. Chinese herbs can work in conjunction with
your prescription drugs. Chinese nutrition can explain why foods cause nasal and sinus congestion. Digestion
is the root of your immunity. Improper digestion can cause fatigue.
What should I expect at an herbal consultation?
When you come in for an herbal consultation, your practitioner will ask you about your symptoms, and go
through a thorough intake of your overall health. The Acupuncturist will ask questions about your sleep,
digestion and emotional state. They will observe your voice, the brightness in your eyes, your odor,
fingernails, hair, posture, gait and skin which all give valuable clues about your state of health. Finally, your
acupuncturist will look at your tongue and feel your pulse, the major diagnostic tools of Chinese medicine.
After getting a complete picture of your health, the acupuncturist will recommend herbal formulas and “Food
Therapy” individualized for your body.

Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage
Tui na translates from the Chinese as “push-grasp”. Physically, tui na is a series of pressing tapping and
kneading movements which remove blockages along the meridians of the body which are used in
Acupuncture. Tui Na is a strong therapeutic method and is not to be used for patients who are looking for
relaxation. It is most often used to relieve respiratory disorders and chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Myofascial Release a safe and gentle approach effective in producing positive and lasting results. Fascia is a tough
connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from your head to your feet without
interruption. Trauma or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles,
blood vessels, osseous structures and/or organs. Since all of the standard tests such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans,
electromyography, etc., do not show the facial restrictions, it is thought that an extremely high percentage of people
suffering with pain, headaches and/or lack of motion may be having facial problems, but most go undiagnosed.
