Using a combination of Acupuncture, Microcurrent and Structural Bodywork in each session, I work with you to resolve chronic and acute pain and injuries, helping you find ease and enjoyment in movement and life.
Acupuncture encourages a focused healing response and an increased sense of whole-body connection, primarily through unblocking impingement and encouraging the movement and circulation of vital fluids such as blood, glycoproteins in the extracellular matrix (ECM), lymph, bioelectricity, and Qi.
Acupuncture is a naturalist-based therapeutic method firmly rooted in a lineage thousands of years old with millions of treatments and empirical data to back it up.
Carefully documented in the classical texts of Ancient China such as The Ling Shu ("Spiritual Pivot") section of the Huang Di Nei Jing, in an unbroken line all the way up through copious volumes of scientific research and modern classics.
You don't have to 'believe' in acupuncture, in fact it's better to just observe and feel the shifts for yourself, without preconceptions.
-Microcurrent boosts the effect of the acupuncture, enhancing the flow of Qi and vital fluids through the myofascial meridians, increasing cellular metabolism to promote healing and alleviate pain. **See Tennant Biomodulator link below for more info.
-Structural Bodywork uses Myofascial Release techniques with active movement, to balance the tensional lines (Myofascial Meridians) in order to bring your body into better structural alignment, easing the cause of most chronic pain.
Using a combination of Acupuncture, Microcurrent and manual Myofascial Release techniques we can bring about change and healing from chronic structural pain patterns with less force.

TENSEGRITY: a fusion of 'tension' and 'integrity,' indicating that structural integrity comes from a balance of tensional forces. The body distributes force and tension through the body via the interconnected myofascial web.
More info about the SESSIONS:
Dial in your specific pattern and issues, and find relief from pain while developing more functional mobility.
-We make some deep structural shifts during each bodywork session, and then you assimilate the work into your own daily, proprioceptive reality.
-The goal is to shift the patterns leading to chronic pain and injury, assessing the local complaints, then looking at the global-big-picture of how your whole body is moving.
-Often the structural cause of pain is not where you feel it, so we work with unbinding or activating myofascial connections in relation to your patterns.
-This work is INTEGRATIVE not 'alternative.'
We use scientific observation, research and technology to better understand and apply the traditional, therapeutic techniques and principles of Acupuncture in a modern world.
-This work is Evidence-Informed, based in direct feedback, and palpable results.
