Herbal Consultation

Herbal and Dietary Consultation can help you better understand your health concerns, and how they may be related to your diet, environment, lifestyle, and health history. Herbal therapy uses the healing power of plants to assist your body's own healing mechanisms to restore balance.

Bodywork Therapy

Bodywork sessions vary depending on the practitioners specialties and the clients preferences for style, pressure, and duration. Practitioners with different styles including Deep Tissue massage, Theraputic Massage, Asian Bodywork, and Gentle Relaxing Bodywork are available.

BioTouch Therapy

Bio Magnetic Touch is a method that uses the application of the healer’s touch selectively to a specific group of 18 trigger points.
The practitioner uses what is affectionately called the “butterfly touch”, by lightly touching the skin of the recipient with the fore and middle fingers of the hands.
A specific pattern and combination of the trigger points is followed to rebalance and restore the body’s vitality and health.

Crystal Fusion Light Therapy

Crystal Fusion Light Therapy uses a fusion of elements including light, color, and gemstones to focus a frequency into body tissues to promote the body’s own healing mechanisms.
SolaraGem is an assembly of specific crystals, gemstones, and color filters that have different effects such as relaxing, balancing, or stimulating the tissues.
A Light Therapy session can be experienced on its own while you relax in a recliner, or as an addition to another treatment such as acupuncture or massage.
