Our Services

Important
While alternative healing modalities and homeotherapy complements conventional medicine, it is NOT a substitute for full diagnostic medical investigation and treatment and it is strongly recommended that you regularly visit your doctor.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a holistic healthcare system that seeks to activate your own healing abilities so that your body feels good, your mind is clear, and your spirit is calm.

Health is a manifestation of balance, both within the body itself and between the body and the external environment. When the body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, energy flows smoothly throughout to nourish all organs and tissues. By adjusting and stimulating the flow of energy through acupuncture, we stimulate the body’s natural healing ability to maintain health and protect against disease.

We offer Japanese needling technique in our sessions, using Japanese style (extra fine gauge) needles almost exclusively. This technique combined with the finer gauge needles results in a more comfortable experience for the client.  All needles are pre-packaged, sterile, one-time-use.  Some insurance accepted.

Ear Candling
Ear Candling is a simple, effective method for removing ear wax build-up, fungus and impaction from within the ear canal. A hollow candle lit at one end draws oxygen for the flame and creates a vacuum, allowing residue to be drawn out of the ear and cleansing the sinus cavity. The process can also regulate sinus pressure, assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, migraines, some forms of hearing loss, and restoration of equilibrium. Ear Candling is an ancient technique still used widely today.

$60.00 – 1 hour session

Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is by itself a powerful method of healing. Western drugs are usually used to control symptoms but do not alter the disease process. For example: antibiotics kill bacteria but do not improve a person’s resistance to infection; diuretics drain excess fluid from the body but do not improve the kidney function. Chinese herbs can rid the body of disease but they also nourish and balance the body in very specific ways, thereby improving organ function and building up a person’s constitution and immune system.

Chinese herbs are traditionally given as a very strong tea. Sometimes clients are given several bags of herbs. Each bag contains a formula of about 12 or so raw herbs that has been prepared specifically for the patient and his or her condition. The patient then prepares the herbs at home by boiling them in water for about a half an hour. The benefit of this method is that the formula can be customized to the patient’s particular condition. However, more often, Monica prescribes herbal pills, powders or tinctures instead because these are more convenient.

$40 – 30 minute consultation (can also be combined with Acupuncture treatment, see above for details and pricing.)

Holistic Life Coaching
Holistic Life Coaching empowers others into taking positive steps to manifest what they desire from life, fulfilling their dreams and finding their life purpose. By openly viewing current life situations, strategies may be designed that will help to determine and overcome the obstacles or limiting beliefs that prevent goals from being realized. It also offers the opportunity to explore each aspect of life in a positive and caring environment in order to bring the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions into balance. The need for change is encouraged when necessary while providing support that is built on trust and honesty equally. Balance, harmony and a sense of fulfillment bring self-realization to reach true potential. It is empowering and energizing and helps clarify realistic and achievable goals.

Integrated Energy Therapy® (IET)
This light, gentle, energy balancing technique releases old stagnant energy patterns and replaces them with the energy of universal light, love and support. This is a light touch system using various trigger points which are energized, then pressed for release and clearing. The effect is a feeling of well-being, peace and deep relaxation. In an IET session, the practitioner works with energy of the 9 healing angels of the energy field to get to the “issues in the tissues,” clearing blockages from cellular memory as well as mental and karmic energy imprints. The objective of IET is to provide a simple and gentle way to open the flow of vital life force within the human body and energy field by rebalancing suppressed feelings from cellular memory and clearing their associated blocks. IET sessions are also appropriate and helpful for children.

$90 – 60 minute session

Karma Release Healing
Karma is a widely held understanding arising out of the eastern spiritual traditions that the principle of cause and effect has a deep energetic soul-level basis. Whatever we bring forth energetically in our beingness and in our thoughts, feelings and actions, attracts an energetic response. Whether that response comes immediately or is an accumulation of deep energetic shifts across physical lifetimes gives rise to what we call ‘karma’.

Whether or not you believe in reincarnation, a Karma Release is a profoundly healing experience. Through the use of deep meditation, energy work, crystals and essential oils, the release of limiting emotions and karmic energy patterns is accelerated across the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical planes; thus freeing the soul to more consciously live with true purpose in this lifetime. The purpose of a Karma Release Healing is to release old energetic patterns which no longer serve us and bring in new patterns and ways of being.

Working with the principles of focused intention and opening to spirit, clients are guided to consciously decide what emotions, behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, patterns, and relationships they want to release and, correspondingly, intentionally choose those thoughts, beliefs, emotions, behaviors, patterns and new ways of being they want to bring into their lives.

By its very nature, a Karma Release session is a very individual experience. Guided by a trained Karma Release Practitioner, the session incorporates energy work, prayer, guided visualization and deep relaxation in a safe, loving setting. Clients report feeling lighter, clearer and more energized after a session; and much more at peace within themselves. A session is approximately 80 minutes but may vary depending on the needs of the client.

$150 – 80 minute session

Lymph Drainage Therapy
The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system. Lymph vessels rely upon hundreds of tiny muscular units (lymphangions) contracting throughout the body to propel lymph flow. The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped due to surgery, trauma, burns, infections, substantial swelling, fatigue, stress or age. When the lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate, and cellular functioning is significantly compromised. This can create many physical ailments and hasten the aging process. Lymphatic Drainage Therapy uses gentle maneuvers to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. Manual Lymphatic Mapping of the vessels is used to assess the overall direction of lymphatic circulation, areas of stagnation, and best alternate pathways for draining lymph and other body fluids. The process is very pleasurable and induces deep relaxation. Medicare accepted. MD referral not needed.

Massage
Massage delivers healing to the muscles and connective tissue of the body through a variety of hands-on techniques. Massage can be used for relaxation, stress reduction, alleviation of physical pain or other therapeutic purposes. By getting rid of excess fluid and waste matter that would normally cause inflammation and adhesions (known as ‘knots’) and by bringing fresh blood and nutrients to the cells, massage can relieve pain and aid in the healing process. Types of massage offered include deep tissue, Thai, Swedish, medical massage (used to provide relief for specific medical conditions such as sciatic nerve impingement, rotator cuff injuries and spinal stenosis, for example) and pre-natal massage.

Thai Massage utulizes gentle yoga-inspired stretches which are held by your practitioner, combined with reflexology, deep tissue massage & craniosacral therapy.  No oilsare used so clients remain fully clothed. Sessions are on a cushioned mat (with supportive pillows) on the floor to allow for greater stretching and movement. Deeply relaxing & profoundly healing.

Past Life Regression
Past Life Regression allows the exploration, through guided imagery and deep relaxation, of emotional patterns or issues that have roots in other incarnations, for healing in the present. Whether or not you believe in reincarnation, a past life regression always brings forward issues needing resolution in the present and, in the best case, provides a context and greater understanding of the source of the issue and how to obtain resolution. Past Life Regression uses hypnosis to induce a deep state of relaxation, however, the conscious mind remains aware. The practitioner asks questions and takes notes throughout the session which are then emailed to the client afterwards. Ample time is provided for discussion of the experience. Session times will vary from 50-90 minutes depending on client need.

$150 per 60-120 minute session

Reflexology
Reflexology has origins based in diverse, ancient practices. It is based on the notion that there are nerve endings and points in the soles of the feet that correspond to energy channels and all of the organs of the body. Pressure and massage applied to these points is thought to stimulate and detoxify the internal organs and improve circulation to problem areas. Additionally it leaves most feeling inexplicably, deeply relaxed and rejuvenated.

Reiki
Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient, natural healing technique. A Reiki student receives her/his healing ability through an ‘attunement’ or empowerment process. Reiki has its own intelligence and is multi-dimensional. It is not directed by the practitioner and the energy goes where it is needed. Reiki energy goes to the cause of a problem wherever it exists – body, mind, or spirit. During a Reiki treatment the practitioner places his/her hands above, or on the client’s head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet. Other hand positions are used for specific conditions. Each position is held 2 to 5 minutes. A treatment lasts 30 to 90 minutes. Reiki enables the body’s energy to flow freely and greatly assists the healing process, clearing blockages and releasing toxins in the body. It provides a sense of clarity and calm.

People who receive Reiki before or after surgery heal more quickly. A treatment creates a wonderful radiance. You will feel very relaxed during a session, often to the point of falling asleep. Reiki is powerful, yet gentle. In its long history, Reiki has been used to assist healing virtually every known illness and injury including cancer, heart disease, skin problems, cuts, broken bones, headaches, colds, sunburn, insect bites, insomnia, depression, lack of confidence, and many other illnesses and symptoms.

Rising Star Healing™
The Rising Star Healing System is probably the most complementary healing system on the planet at this time. It raises the vibration of the aura (human energy field) and the field around every living thing. It is a living energy that has the ability to encompass all other healing systems and promote unity consciousness as a primary connection to healing from Divine Source. Rising Star was channeled by Derek O’Neill, a psychotherapist, healer and instrument of Divine Energy from Ireland. Since then, thousands around the world have been trained and healed through the Rising Star Healing System and have agreed that it is very effective and in some cases life changing.

The Rising Star allows the practitioner and receiver to still the mind and transfer divine life energy to the part of your being that needs it most, for your healing and rebalancing to full health. The Rising Star Healing System is so simple and yet so powerful. A Rising Star healing session restructures the client’s energy circuits for holding a higher frequency by working on all levels of the client – physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual, etheric and energetic. The Rising Star works on the five elements: fire, water, air, earth and ether. It also works on all seven-body systems, of which the physical body is the first and most dense layer of energy around each around each person.

Why are three healing sessions recommended?

During the first session your mind will want to follow what the practitioner is doing. So most people don’t switch off and relax deeply. During the second session your mind lets go of control more so that deeper issues can be dealt with by you and the loving help of the Divine energy. In the third session every part of your being is filled with love and light, as you are now ready to let go of the issues or dis-ease. There is a three-week gap in between each session to allow the energy to work on the seven major energy points of the human body and the aura system to clear.

Visceral Manipulation
Visceral Manipulation is an osteopathic technique that focuses on the internal organs, their environment, and their potential influence on many structural and physiological dysfunctions. The visceral system relies on the interconnected synchronicity between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. At optimal health, this harmonious relationship remains stable. But when one organ cannot move in harmony with its viscera due to abnormal tone, adhesions, or displacement, it works against the body’s other organs and muscular, membranous, fascial, and osseous structures. This disharmony creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body is forced to move around which can cause disease and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation can be used alone or in conjunction with other Holistic Therapies to alleviate neck/back/hip/shoulder pain, digestive/bladder/uterine/ovarian problems, any organ dysfunction, and many other conditions. Medicare accepted. MD referral not needed.
