Acupressure: Acupressure uses the pressure of the fingers and hands and is utilized effectively for tension related elements.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture uses small needles to penetrate and stimulate specific points in the body to restore normal functions and energetic balance. Acupuncture is now a widely accepted form of treatment throughout the world and is practiced in both hospitals and private practice.

Anti-Aging: Aging process can be slowed, suspended and in some cases reversed. Acupuncture came about as a shift in thinking from aging as an inevitable process to aging as a series of disease processes. Aging processes can be measured, and as with any disease, there are symptoms and treatments. Anti-aging is a comprehensive practice of preventive care, but goes beyond them utilizing specific high-tech testing procedures and treatments.

Applied Kinesiology: Applied Kinesiology (AK) tests the Chi or energy by taking a strong indicator muscle, any strong muscle, and asking the person to lock their muscle as the practitioner challenges the strength of that muscle by pushing or pulling the area to see if it will hold. The practitioner might ask the person to hold his/her arm straight out in front and lock it while the practitioner with an open hand firmly pushes down on the arm right above the wrist. This is a check to see if the arm will hold. Any major muscle will work for muscle testing. The arm being able to hold is a signal the body is free of dis-ease or distress. If the arm is unable to hold is a signal there is a weakness in the system. Kinesiology testing is required to determine the cause of the dis-ease or distress.

Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy is the art and science of using the essential oil of botanical plants for the treatment of ailments, illness and disease. Various therapeutic grade essential oils are utilized without side effects. These oils can be inhaled, applied topically and, in some cases, ingested. In many countries aromatherapy is highly respected as a system of holistic health care.

Ayurvedic Medicine: Ayurvedic Medicine is an ancient medicine, which evolved among the Brahmin sages of ancient India. Ayurveda is from the roots “ayur” meaning life and “veda” meaning knowledge. Ancient Vedic texts indicate the system is the oldest being practiced prior to 4000 B.C. and some believe it is even 8000 years old. Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are very similar being based on universal natural bi-polar concepts that matter and energy are one. There are several aspects of this system of medicine which distinguish it from other approaches to health care.
