Acupuncture is based on the ancient principals of energy according to yin and yang, which equates to balance. Optimum health is experienced when our Qi, or energy, is balanced within our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Qi circulates within us through pathways called meridians, and these meridians correspond to our internal organ systems.
Acupuncture addresses illness by first determining where the imbalance lies within the meridians and/or organ systems. This is determined through pulse and tongue readings in addition to a health intake by the practitioner. The goal is to then unblock stuck or stagnant energy by use of tiny hair thin needles on the surface of the skin. The goal of acupuncture is to treat the cause of one’s symptoms rather than treating the symptom alone.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture:
A natural alternative to botox that eliminates the signs of aging by stimulating blood and energy flow to facial meridians. The increased blood flow fills in wrinkles; making lines on the face become finer and eventually disappear. Facial acupuncture effectively treats puffiness, dark circles, acne, and slight sagging in addition to treating wrinkles. Results will be seen after one treatment however, a series of treatments is recommended for a more dramatic and long lasting effect.

Cupping is another modality under the scope of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) that uses small cups, usually made from glass, and suction to pull out impurities and toxins from the lymph, muscles, and energy pathways we call meridians. Most often the cups are placed on the back. They may be left in one place or moved around an entire area to release pain, improve circulation and immunity, remove blockages in the digestive system and muscles, or open up the chest and lungs to treat asthma, bronchitis, or allergies.

Moxibustion is a warming technique, which utilizes the Chinese herb, Mugwart, on or around acupoints to stimulate blood flow, increase circulation, release pain, build immunity, or reinvigorate the Qi.

TCM Nutrition Analysis:
Use Traditional Chinese Medical Theory to eat and enjoy food as medicine. You will learn how foods are eaten according to the energy it (each food) creates within the body and how you can treat conditions like allergies, asthma, arthritis, fatigue, and depression to name a few.

When done correctly, ear candling can remove years of chronic yeast and congestion built up in the ear canal, which affects the sinuses and immunity. The use of high quality ear candles and proper knowledge of technique is what makes ear candling most effective.

A very gentle, yet often extremely powerful approach to energy healing. A patient is fully clothed while the practitioner uses their hands to place on or above the body to channel what is defined as “universal life force energy,” by traditional reiki definitions. This means that the practitioner is simply a channel for the energy that is appropriate for the patients healing, and what the patient is willing to receive for healing.

Reiki training/attunements:
Krishna has gone through reiki attunement to what’s called the “reiki master” level. In the Usui Mikao tradition of reiki, this is the level by which one is able to attune others to the three degrees of reiki. Krishna has held several classes at each level for those students very interested in taking their own healing to a deeper level.

Sound Healing:
Everything in our bodies holds it’s own vibration. Illness holds a vibration very different than a vibration of wellness, calm, love, or radiant health. The goal of vibration therapy is to reset the vibration of the body from imbalance to balance according to ones needs to enhance healing. This modality is often used with other modalities but is also quite amazing on it’s own. I use tuning forks, crystal bowls, or didgeridoo.

Craniosacral Therapy:
As defined by the Upledger Institute, CST (CranioSacral Therapy) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
