NATURAL TREATMENTS

Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, acupuncture works with meridians along the body. Treatments greatly reduce stress, improve bowel movements, mood, and optimize fertility. In addition, it speeds recovery time of injuries and muscle strains or tension, and reduces pain.

I am also certified in, cosmetic acupuncture and fine lifting technique to promote facial rejuvenation, minimize acne, scars, and rosacea. *This service is offered by me through Namaste Spa*

Herbal Medicine

With an on-site dispensary Herbal Medicine provides pharmaceutical-strength results with minimal side-effects. It can be taken as a liquid or through high-grade medicinal teas. 

Supplements can be found everywhere, but to achieve a therapeutic effect it's important to understand bioavailability and dosing.  I recommend supplements that I trust and have been backed by research and have third-party testing. With professional grade supplements the results you want can be achieved.

Professional Supplements

Nutrition 

Assessing your individual symptoms and need for nutrients, vitamins, and minerals I help you make dietary changes that address deficiencies and/or sensitivities.  

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a safe and gentle means of treatment. It is especially helpful for alleviating stubborn symptoms or residual emotions from loss, guilt, or trauma.

Counselling

If you are seeking treatment for mood, I strongly encourage you to consider a series of counselling sessions. CBT is an effective means of treatment for many mental health issues and in certain conditions, has been shown to be superior to anti-depressants and anxiolytics. 

Vitamin injections can be used to correct nutritional deficiencies and as a preventative to the cold and flu.
