Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral is a gentle yet profound form of fascial release that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. It is effective in releasing compression in these areas and thus alleviating stress and pain.

I find that incorporating Cranial Sacral with Acupuncture is especially helpful in working with headaches, sinus compression, TMJ and general stress and anxiety. I have Studied Cranial Sacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute.

MyoFascial Release

Myofascial Release is an effective manual therapy technique that involves gentle sustained pressure into restrictions within the myofacial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion. It is especially powerful when combined with Acupuncture to release chronic pain patterns involving the low back and neck.


Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique that helps to balance the subtle energies within our bodies while addressing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances.

In 1996 I spent half a year living in India. It was during this time that I had the opportunity to extensively study Reiki. There are three levels of Reiki initiation and I was fortunate to receive all three. The type of Reiki initiation that I received and practice is called Usui Reiki.

Incorporating Reiki into my Acupuncture treatments allows the client to fully relax and receive the benefits of Acupuncture on a profound and deep level.

Muscle Energy Technique

Muscle Energy Technique is a gentle and extremely specific form of manual therapy that involves the voluntary contraction of muscle in a precisely controlled direction against a distinct counterforce applied by the operator. I find Muscle Energy Technique to be very effective when combined with Acupuncture to clear low back and sacral dysfunction.
