Acupressure is based on one the most ancient principles of healing - that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these "points" on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.

Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself.

While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.

Qigong is a 5000 year old energy art for strengthening the flow of life force & improving health. Its recent surge in popularity has been a result of Qigong’s fun and dynamic movements of practice.

Some say it’s the most tangible experience of the spiritual life force energy. It yields a strong “Qi Feeling” in minutes.
Supreme Science Qigong is a very unique style that accelerates metabolism, blood circulation and BUILDS HOT ENERGY in your navel center. Because the navel connects to every other meridian in your body this results in a feeling of warmth and wellbeing that is difficult to describe.
-As Defined by Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack
QI is the "Leading Force" behind blood circulation and feels like a PULSE. During Qigong practice people report sensing a powerful blood flow into their hands and feet.
Often it takes people by surprise how warm they feel after making just a few movements. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) states that virtually every disease is caused by lack of blood to organs, joints & extremities.
Qigong can move more blood in your body than jogging many miles... while standing still in relaxed postures!!! Yoga works with energy, but to a lesser degree and although we practice and love yoga, Qigong does what Yoga cannot.
Many thousands of yoga teachers and they are always blown away by the Tangibility of Qi experienced. Intense exercise releases CORTISOL and constricts vessels. Qigong moves blood while the practitioner is RELAXED and therefore gets a level of circulation that is unmatched.

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
