Tuina and acupressure massage
Originating around 1700 B.C., tuina (pronounced tooe-na) is the second branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine. A complete healing system in itself, it is traditionally used alongside acupuncture, herbal medicine, and tai chi. Tuina works on muscle groups, joints, pain sites, circulation,and the same meridians and points used in acupuncture.
I practice a northern California style of tuina, passed down by Master Tsuei and Brian O'Dea. Using Traditional Chinese Medicine medical theory, it incorporates rhythmic compression, range of motion, and acupressure to bring your body back into balance.
Herbal wellness consultations
Herbal medicine is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I specialize in herbal medicine from several traditions, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and western herbalism.
During your initial herbal wellness consultation, I will conduct a full assessment of your needs, health history, and current lifestyle, so I can understand the underlying patterns affecting your health, and will provide you with a customized herbal wellness plan, making it possible for you to reach your health goals. Follow-up visits are critical to monitor your progress and to be able to make adjustments to the formulas. Three follow-up visits are recommended. *
Herbs are paid for separately, and can be re-ordered anytime without a consultation fee for up to a year. The average monthly costs of herbs ranges from about $25-50.
