Chinese acupuncture is an ancient healing art developed thousands of years ago. The ancients understood and developed the use of the energetic meridian system, and the use of points on these meridians to treat not only the manifestation of disharmony within the body, but the underlying root cause as well. Today’s acupuncturists use fine filiform needles (solid needles that can be smaller than a strand of hair) to stimulate the meridian system, bring qi and blood to the area, and facilitate healing.
Acupuncture treatments help with the following disharmonies:
- Acute and chronic pain
- Recent studies have shown that acupuncture can be an alternative to opiate use
- Menstrual irregularities
- The symptoms associated with Lyme’s disease
- Stroke recovery, Bell’s Palsy
- IBS and other digestive concerns
- And so much more…
Chinese Herbal Medicine is an ancient traditional healing art that is thousands of years old. The ancient herbalists considered the physical and energetic healing properties of each herb and how to synergistically combine them to treat not only the symptoms of disharmony, but the underlying root as well. Chinese herbal medicine is available in patent form (pills or tablets), or can be specifically tailored to meet each individuals needs (raw or powdered formulas).
Healing sessions can assist with depression, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, releasing held trauma, manifesting your soul’s longing, finding balance and ease in every day life, creating healthy relationships, creating healthy boundaries, healing ancestral trauma, and more. Christina combines different techniques such as chakra balancing, hara healing, core star expansion, astral clearing, relationship cord clearing, past life clearing, and the Chinese Meridian system (as well as other techniques) to guide each healing. Energy healing sessions can be done with hands on or off the body, and long distance.
Christina is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a world renowned transformational healing school, and has over 2000 hours of intensive training. She is also a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture, the oldest acupuncture school in the USA.
