Asian Bodywork (Chinese style tui na)
Most people are familiar with shiatsu or Thai massage…but have you tried Chinese tui na? This is a great modality that is akin to massage but also like having an acupuncture treatment without needles. For stress, fatigue, muscle ache, insomnia, and other ailments…or for fun things like facial rejuvenation, tui na is magical.
Options include- $100 per session (75 minutes) – $85.00 per session (60 minutes) – Facial rejuvenation treatments $100 per treatment (60 minutes) or $800.00 (Series of ten treatments purchased as a package)

Cupping, Gua sha, Ear Seeds, and/or Moxibustion – $50/half hour – $75.00/full hour
Cupping is a form of deep tissue therapy. Plastic or glass cups are applied to specific regions of the skin to create suction that restores the flow of blood, fluid, and Qi to restore health and stimulate healing processes. Either by increasing the suction or by gently moving the cups in a gliding motion, this therapy loosens tight muscles, increases circulation, and draws out stagnant toxins, thereby leaving the body relaxed and rejuvenated.
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese modality in which oiled skin is lightly scraped to produce bruise-like markings (“sha”). This modality stimulates blood flow, releases heat, and relaxes muscles.
Ear seeds are a method of auriculotherapy (magnet therapy and acupuncture are others). The external ear has over 200 locations that correspond to organs and areas of the body; by pressing or otherwise stimulating these areas it is possible to boost health and wellness.
Moxibustion is a type of heat therapy. Burning herbs are held near the skin to warm and invigorate Qi and to dispel pathogenic influences. This therapy is excellent for sore muscles and general body aches in particular. (Available only in my South office location).
Reiki – $50/half hour; $75/full hour
This modality promotes stress reduction and relaxation and supports overall health. Reiki can be an effective complement to conventional touch therapy care and is useful for anyone who is seeking a calming, gentle, and soothing treatment.
