Acupuncture

Acupuncture, the ​best know​ ​therapy of Chinese Medicine,​ i​s ​the ​placement​ of ​small, ​sterile, ​disposable ​needles into the body at specific points for treatment of health problems. Chinese medical theory describes Qi, or energy, that flows through pathways in the body. These pathways are like rivers in that they have a natural flow to them and when the flow is obstructed, pain, illness, and other ailments occur.

For thousands of years Chinese practitioners have stimulated points along these pathways to restore proper energy flow and encourage healing.

Herbal Medicine

​Herbal medicine has been an integral part of Chinese culture and medical practice for thousands of years. It largely consists of natural medicines, namely from herbal, animal and mineral substances.​ Herbal remedies are often used in conjunction with acupuncture to treat a variety of symptoms to regulate the body’s internal environment and assist healing from within.

Cupping

Cupping involves placement of glass cups on the skin with suction for a few minutes at a time. This technique increase​s​ new blood circulation to underlying muscles, break​s​ up adhesions in connective tissue, and pul​​l​s​ out toxins​ and other cellular debris​. Cupping is commonly used for pain and tension of the neck, shoulders, back, hip, and the common cold. ​Cupping​ helps to reduce pain and inflammation so your muscles feel balanced and healthy.​ It​ can be included within an acupuncture appointment or booked as a stand alone treatment.​

Guasha

Guasha is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves a gentle scraping of the skin with a smooth rounded-edge tool. This technique is frequently used on patients who feel like they are catching a cold and also for pain management (similar to cupping).

The stroking of the guasha tool produces a reddish, raised area on the skin called “sha” that disappears in 2-3 days.

Reiki Chakra Reading + Crystal Healing

Reiki is an extremely gentle ​hands-on, or hands-off, ​healing modality that​ clears energetic debris and blockages to reinstate harmony in the body. During a session, the patient remains fully clothed laying on a massage table. Hands ​will be placed ​on or near the patient’s body to influence the bio-energetic fields of the brain, heart, endocrine system, vital organs, and areas of discomfort. Reiki is helpful for both physical and emotional imbalances and induces a deep sense of relaxation. In these signature sessions, crystals are placed on and around the body to help entrain higher and more stable frequencies within the energy field. Claretha also receives empathic and intuitive information during these sessions which she can share with you afterward.

Distance Reiki can be performed for those who want to receive healing but are not able to come into the office or those who are not local. Instructions for a distance Reiki appointment will be emailed prior to the healing session. Please click here to set up a distance healing session.

Claretha is a Reiki Master and teaches Reiki Level 1, Reiki Level 2, and Reiki Level 3.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medical technique that involves the burning of the herb Ai Ye (Artemesia Vulgaris) near an acupuncture point in order to facilitate healing. The purpose of performing moxabustion is to warm the local area, improve blood circulation and encourage the smooth flow of energy in the body. Patients usually report that the pleasant warming sensation gives them a deeper sense of relaxation when moxibustion is used during their treatment.

Soliman auricular allergy treatment (SAAT)

Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) is a technique that provides allergy relief. It is a specialized yet simple acupuncture treatment where one needle placed in the ear can drastically reduce allergy symptoms by 80-95%. The treatment addresses allergies or sensitivities to:

  • Food: gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, corn, eggs, sugar, nuts, fruits, vegetables, shellfish, and more.

Essential Oils

Like Traditional Chinese Medicine, essential oils have been used for thousands of years in many cultures to encourage and support physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. They are nicknamed Essential Oils because they hold within them the natural living energy and volatile oils, or Qi, of the plant. Often oils are included with an acupuncture visit.
