Holistic Approach to Healing

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been practiced for centuries by the Chinese to relieve pain in the body. TCM offers many herbal remedies to help with painful conditions like back pain, headaches, arthritis, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and even depression. Chinese herbal medicine is seen by many practitioners around the world as a holistic approach to healing painful conditions in the body. Terpenes, polysaccharides, and alkaloids are some of the substances used to remove toxins in the body reinforcing the immune system, which in turn release pain in many parts of the body.

Do you suffer from neck or facial wrinkles, acne, scars, burns or skin irregularities?

Words To Live By

Natural Skin Rejuvenation with PRP

Platelets help stop bleeding and contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cells and collagen formation. PRP is injected into the skin and this treatment may promote natural tissue regeneration and increase collagen production, improving the quality of the skin, smoothing fine line and wrinkles, and helping to restore luminosity. The results in the injected area may be seen over the course of several weeks following the treatment.

Jin Shin Jyutsu & Fertility

Various forms of traditional oriental medicine, like Jin Shin Jyutsu, have been used for millennia to treat infertility by restoring and maintaining harmonious balance of the body’s energy pathways to help resolve problems associated with infertility. It can re-establish the flow of energy, after which physical symptoms may be resolved and reproductive functioning restored. For example, a severe disturbance or blockage resulting from our stress levels can lead to disruption of egg production, fertilization and/or implantation of the fertilized egg. Receiving JSJ, as well as doing self-help JSJ practices, can help restore balance and address these issues.

What is CPAP Therapy?

Otherwise known as constant positive airway pressure, CPAP therapy is the gold standard choice in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with significantly higher success rates than corrective surgery or dental appliances in moderate to severe cases. A pressure is applied gently to the airway to relieve flaccid anatomical muscle tone during sleep through an externally affixed mask. The patient’s perception is that like a fan, that translates into an airway splint or pressure to keep the airway open during sleep. Through repetitive use and as their pre-treatment symptoms subside, improved breathing is achieved.
