Acupuncture protocals are chosen after careful observation and intake of the patient including pulse & tongue diagnosis. The diagnosis decides what points will be used within the treatment.
Acupuncture protocals are administered by using high quality surgical stainless steel, SEIRIN® needles that are machine sharpened and polished. This results in a painless and smooth insertion, which benefits both patient and practitioner. Needles are not necessarily used in every treatment as acupuncture point protocals can also be administerd via acupressure, Aroma Acupoint therapy (AAT), Floral Acupuncture and Mineral medicine.

Peter has been studying and researchig essential oils clinically for over 30 years.
Gua Sha & Cupping
Gua Sha techniques are mostly used for facial acupuncture. Gently massaging & lifting the facial tissue benefits the whole look of the face & skin tone. These techniques are combined with facial acupuncture treatments.
Cupping is a technique that is ususally offered after the acupuncture needles are removed. However, cupping can be applied on it's own or combined with massage. Cupping is applied to the back in most cases & offers deep relaxation & release to tight muscles.

Caren started learning about flower essences over a decade ago from teacher & friend, Myla St Crispin founder of Hall of Spells. Myla's system teaches a deep reverance for the natural world wherein individual knowledge of the many uses of flower & plant allies can begin to emerge. It is from this base that Caren works with flower remedies & continues her practice with mentor, Lorie Eve Dechar L.Ac.
