Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing used for thousands of years to anticipate, treat, and prevent disease. It is the oldest continuously-practiced medical system in the world, and one third of the world's population still uses it as their primary health-care system. Acupuncture is based on the principle that there are natural laws which govern not only the world around us, but our bodies as well. These laws describe a life force, qi, that moves in all things.
Massage Therapy is one of the oldest forms of treatment in the world. Superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue are addressed using various techniques in order to relieve pain, promote well-being, and enhance healing.

Counseling and Psychotherapy are general terms used to describe the process of working on problems or areas of stress with a trained practitioner. The relationship between client and therapist is an important aspect of treatment, as it is very important to establish trust and rapport in order to do the work. Generally it is through talking with the practitioner that a client gains insight into their difficulties, better understands their motivation, finds more appropriate ways of coping, and enacts changes in their thinking and behavior.

Movement Education teaches clients how to move with greater freedom and to maintain proper alignment. The practitioner first observes current movement patterns: how a person sits, stands, and walks. Based on these observations, the practitioner will make the client aware of habitual patterns that are limiting movement or causing tension, and introduce new ways of moving, as well as exercises and skills, that will result in greater flexibility, balance, and ease.
Chinese herbal medicine, along with acupuncture, is part of an integrated system of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for over 3,000 years. Chinese herbal medicine is a natural and gentle way to enhance the body's innate ability to cope with stress and heal from injury and illness. Herbal prescriptions are individualized, formulated to provide relief from symptoms while addressing the underlying imbalances that may be causing them. Chinese herbal medicine can used alone or in conjunction with acupuncture. It can also safely complement Western medical treatments and reduce its side effects.
Energy Healing is based on the premise that matter and energy are not mutually exclusive, but that matter is simply a denser form of energy. The human energy field sets the foundation for the physical body. Any disturbance, or imbalance, will manifest first in the energy field before affecting the physical body. The energy therapist seeks to re-balance the energy fields of the body, opening up the flow of energy, clearing blockages, and releasing toxins. Energy Healing can be done hands-on, hands-off, or even at a distance.
Zero Balancing®, or ZB, was developed by Fritz Smith, MD, and draws upon his background in both osteopathy and acupuncture, thus integrating fundamental principles of western medicine with eastern concepts of energy. This technique provides the possibility of healing by addressing the energy flow of the skeletal system.
