Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
The Cygnus Aqua Cleanse is a specialized machine used to cleanse your body by creating an energetic balance utilizing an ionized water bath for your feet. The Cynus is beneficial in encouraging a healthy living energy field. In Chinese medicine, meridians are your body's energy highways. Where there is blocked energy in your body's meridians, the flow of healthy energy is also blocked. The Cygnus opens up these blockages and recharges your body's energy. Cells in your body are oxygenated which in turn releases lymph into your system. Your lymph system gathers cellular waste and dumps it into your circulatory system for elimination from the body. As the toxins are released these are siphoned through magnetic attraction into the waterbath through the soles of your feet. your body tissue and organs are cleansed through this process and as a result overall improve your health. As your physical and energetic systems are brought into balance, you feel relaxed and mentally refreshed. In the days that follow the treatment, you will continue to discharge toxins and you may experience a sense of well being. many health conditions have been shown to respond to this type of therapy.
Why Detoxify with an Ionic Foot Bath?
The health benefits of negative ions are well known. When water is ionized and split into H+ and OH- ions (and sometimes into H3O+ and H2O2 ions), these ions are able to enter the body through the 4,000 large pores of the feet. Then the circulatory and lymphatic systems transport the ions throughout the body. These ions neutralize oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body. In this way, all the body's organs can become energized and stimulated to function optimally. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal processes of urination, defecation and sweating.
Ionic detox has been known to:
Remove toxins, free radicals and body waste products that can cause health problems (In an Aug. '04 study by Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, there was a significant deposit of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic illnesses.)
Chelate toxic metals
- In a 2008 study by Center for Research Strategies (crsllc.org), 31 participants underwent ionic detox two times per week for 12 weeks. The amount of aluminum and arsenic in their blood was measured before and after the 12 weeks. The average blood aluminum level decreased by 46% from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb. The average blood arsenic level decreased 24% from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb.
In a 2002 study by Doctor's Data in St. Charles, IL, there was an average increase in toxic metals found in the foot basin from nine independent sessions. Here is a list of metals that increased in concentration:
- Raise pH levels. Approximately 95% of people experience a state of acidity in which their blood pH is lower than 7.45, indicating an excess of hydrogen ions. This makes an ideal breeding ground for worms, parasites, microorganisms and other critters that lower body function and cause disease.
- Inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus
- Relieve pain and tension including headaches
- Purify the blood and lymph
- Stimulate and balance the immune system
- Enhance nutrient absorption
- Reduce inflammation and unwanted fluid retention
- Help clear up skin
- Assist in weight loss
- Slow down aging and improve body flexibility
- Quicken recovery time from disease or injury
- Increase oxygen in the body
- Rejuvenate and energize your whole body
- Improve sleep

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Energy work is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. I work directly with your energy field to restore balance and flow to your entire system. And once your energy field has been restored to full health, your body will follow.
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. Using a LymphStar accelerates the movement of lymph by liquifying the congested lymph thereby the movement is 7 to 10 times easier to move and decongest the affected areas. The LymphStar also assists in healing any injured areas.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
AcuStaple is ear stapling used for weight loss, stress reduction, pain management, migraine headaches, tension, smoking cessation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and acid reflux. 95% effective for weight loss.
Ear stapling has been around for over two decades. It is a combination of auriculotherapy and acupressure. It is called staple puncture or acupressure with stapling because it is a variation of auriculotherapy that places the staple at key ear pressure points to target weight loss, stress, tension, migraines, and smoking cessation.
Auriculotherapy or ear puncture utilizes the body's ‘micro system’ of the ear to treat certain parts of the body. It has been shown scientifically that different points in the ear demonstrate higher electrical conductivity when their related organ or tissue is stressed, unbalanced, or diseased. Through treatment of such points, energy flow is theorized to be enhanced to this area of the body. This increase of energy to an area of imbalance will potentially result in improvement in the physical as well as energetic state of body.
There are said to be over 700 different auricular points on the ear. I of course do not target all of those. I concentrate on certain pressure points that target appetite, stress, tension, IBS, gastric reflux and cravings. When you come in for your appointment I will go over these specific pressure points in detail with a diagram.
The majority of my clients come to me for the weight loss staple, which at this time, Acu~Staple has a 90% success rate and for smoking and migraines there is an 85% success rate.
There are numerous reasons to have the staple placed; weight loss, migraines, stress, smoking cessation, chronic back pain and digestive imbalances. Everyone is different regarding the anatomy of their ears; there are no two alike, including your left and right ear. I will assess each person as an individual and will try to meet your specific needs regarding the ear staple. Please know, the staple will affect what your body needs most. For example, you may lose inches at first then pounds. You may sleep better than you ever have, be less tense and not lose weight at first. The staple targets many areas, so you may feel the staple isn't working because you are not losing weight, but it really is, it is targeting what your body needs first.
I was trained by medical personnel on placement of staples and the care that is needed for the stapling after the procedure is performed.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
