I went to see Janet after suffering chronic headaches for years and relying on the OTC headache/pain relievers. I really wanted to try something to help the pain so I no longer needed to take medication.

Acupuncture – Restoring your qi (energy) flow
Acupuncture is performed by the insertion of needles through the skin at certain points on or near the surface of the body along the meridians. This helps to restore the flow of energy and thus, the overall health of the patient. This method facilitates the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
Ear Acupuncture (also known as Auriculotherapy) is a rapid and effective treatment modality for relieving various pain and medical conditions through stimulation of points on the ear. The ear acts like a terminal in direct contact with the central nervous system. Treatment involves the use of acupuncture needles, beads, or seeds.
Herbal Medicine – Herbs chosen specifically for you
Herbal medicine also seeks to restore the flow of energy or “qi” to achieve balance and harmony within the body. Herbal prescriptions are tailored and individualized specifically for your current body’s needs. It is administered internally and/or externally. Internally, herbs are administered as pills, powders, and herbal teas. Externally, herbs include topical treatments that are applied to or massaged onto the skin.
Acupressure – Stimulating the body’s self-healing abilities
Acupressure is a form of Chinese massage that utilizes pressure points, similar to acupuncture points that are applied or massaged onto the skin to allow free flow of qi and blood to the energy pathways.
