The first step

The prerequisite to committing to a package or series starts with the completion of an introductory trial-session.

An introductory trial session is necessary to make sure you and I have a clear understanding of the results you would like to produce, and to confirm sessions will be a good fit for you. 

Introductory trial session

-A combination of acupuncture, touch or movement therapy.

-One-hour of therapy followed by a twenty-minute consultation regarding physical, health, and well-being goals.

-Non-committal in order to see if sessions are the right fit for you.

Based on this trial, I will create a customized plan of action for your well being that will support your vision, help to achieve your goals, and resolve your ailments.

When you choose to book a package, the introductory trial session will count as the first session of that package, and the investment will be deducted from the total cost of the package you choose.

Investment: $250 for an initial 90-minute session

100% Guarantee of a healing experience – to be listened to and to upgrade function.

Single session

– Single sessions keep the body in tune. Utilized best when you have previously gone through a series of sessions and need a tune up for maintenance. – 

– Single sessions are if you are simply looking to remedy your acute pain, swelling, movement inhibition, if you are in the need of a “quick fix”. Not recommended for chronic conditions.

– Some injuries are best treated sooner than later, same day appointments can be scheduled for acute cases.

– Going through a project, or series is the ideal way to create long-term change for yourself. Special pricing and packages are offered.

Satellite session

– Healing done from afar – health-style coaching is the best option if you and I cannot meet face-to-face. Sessions may include Neuro-Linguistic programming, hypnosis, guided imagery, movement therapy and somatic exploration.

– Satellite sessions are done over Skype, FaceTime or a similar app in the convenience of your chosen location. 

– This session is recommended if you have irregular work hours or live in a different time zone. 

*It is highly recommended to be in a comfortable, quiet, open space where you will not be disturbed.

Group & Corporate

Group Therapy Wellness Program

Group therapy , sometimes known as community style therapy, is an effective, and cost efficient alternative to private sessions for addressing pain, stress, and fatigue.

Corporate Therapy Wellness Program

Many corporations, small businesses, and municipalities have found acupuncture and manual therapy to be a low cost benefit that helps to attract and retain quality employees and help them achieve peak performance. It’s clear to see why the leading Fortune 500 companies offer massage and acupuncture therapy as part of their employee benefit program.

Some of the country’s largest companies have found acupuncture and manual therapy to reduce headaches, back strain and fatigue since offering the therapy as a benefit to their employees. Others cited a decline in turnover rates, an increase in problem-solving aptitude and heightened morale.

Some benefits of offering acupuncture and manual therapy to your employees include:

Reduced Stress

Decreased absenteeism

Greater company appreciation

Lowered blood pressure

Increased employee retention and

improved employee morale

On-the-job stress can be contributed to shifts in corporate structure, company growth, even large projects and the daily competitiveness within a company. Physical threats such as carpal tunnel syndrome, fatigue, the common cold and other illnesses can be easily contracted in your work environment. These therapies have been shown time and again to alleviate work-related stress and build immunity against many illnesses, and companies that offer massage benefits to their employees not only have happier employees but healthier employees who feel appreciated, and in turn excel in their jobs.
