ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment method that can trigger the production of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, as well as many hormonal and other biochemical changes in the mindbody. It has also been shown to work at the genetic level by turning off genes responsible for inflammation in the body. The needles are about the size of a hair, so most people find them very easy to take. As they lie there comfortably for a half hour or so, they usually become very relaxed and experience a sense of wellbeing.

 

LIFE COACHING

By understanding how to change unhealthy life patterns, people often experience a big improvement in their symptoms. Whether at work, in personal relationships, or in health habits, creating positive changes is possible. Good nutrition, plenty of exercise, balanced lifestyle habits, and emotional wellness can literally transform your life, while their absence can contribute in a big way to illness and pain. In Life Coaching, which is part of every session, we examine what works and what doesn’t work in your life, and together we will find ways to help you change for the better. In some cases, this is the most important part of the treatment process. 

 

NUTRITION COACHING

The right kind, amount, and ratios of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates can make an enormous difference in the status of your health. For many people, symptoms are often improved if not eliminated by dietary changes and the use of supplements. Food is definitely medicine, and is an essential part of being healthy in both mind and body. After reviewing your dietary habits, I will most likely make recommendations customized to your particular needs.
