""I still have bad days but that's okay. I used to have bad years." Anon.
Are you dealing with chronic health issues that have been treated by allopathic physicians, medications, or other methods without healing? It can be frustrating to feel less than your best day after day, especially when the obligations of life continue, but there is healing.

Acupuncture is one of the most effective forms of alternative medicine used to promote and restore the balance of energy, which flows throughout the body. The benefits of acupuncture extend to a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD to stress management, insomnia and treating PMS and relieving menopausal symptoms. It can also help alleviate various types of digestive complaints like irritable bowel syndrome and respiratory conditions, including sinusitis and asthma. It can be beneficial for pain syndromes due to an injury or chronic degenerative diseases and for treating fibromyalgia, migraines, headaches, neck and back pain. Acupuncture has also proved beneficial for reducing fatigue and addictions, weight management, and for promoting overall well-being. We have licensed acupuncturists who can assist you in all of these areas, while adding various other adjunct treatments for an integrative approach.
Therapeutic massage is another effective form of integrative, holistic therapy that can augment emotional healing by reducing trait anxiety; a person's general susceptibility to anxiety, as well as subclinical depression. It can also alleviate headaches, reduce migraines, decrease pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia, as well as stress induced insomnia, various pain syndromes, soft tissue injuries and strains, TMJ, and digestive disorders. It is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension and boosting immunity. Mary specializes in deep tissue massage, myofascial release, foot reflexology and triggerpoint therapy. Her experience in managing massage therapists and supervising interns in helping their clients, gives her additional expertise to help you with your concerns.
Reiki, another form of energy work, which uses hands placed lightly on or near the body of the patient, is also used to promote healing. Patients usually experience feelings of relaxation, mental clarity, pain relief, decreased anxiety and negative mood, and a sense of well-being. Emotional healing is one of the most endearing effects of Reiki and can enable you to deeply connect with others. Reiki or other healing touch therapies accelerate the body's self-healing abilities, aid in deeper sleep, and helps the body detoxify, while it assists in removing energy blockages bringing the body into more balance and emotional healing. Somatic Experiencing is another form of healing that can release trauma from the body by getting the person "unstuck" from traumatic events. It is aimed at relieving the symptoms of PTSD and other mental and physical trauma-related health problems by focusing on perceived body sensations.
Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It's a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. Yoga therapy is a type of therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. Yoga therapy is a well established treatment for depression and anxiety. It is also suitable for substance abuse, addictions, back pain, heart conditions, chronic fatigue, hypertension, and multiple sclerosis. It shows promise for the treatment
of posttraumatic stress (PTSD) and schizophrenia. This holistic approach encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit and covers a broad range of therapeutic
modalities, incorporating elements from both
psychotherapy and physical therapy. Rita is a certified yoga instructor and therapist, who practices and teaches yoga
as an exercise and/or as a therapy.
