Acupuncture is one of the oldest most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), your overall health is determined by the quality of energy flow through the natural pathways of your body. Acupuncture uses variety of techniques, including placing very thin needles into specific points of the body to stimulate and improve your Qi (energy) flow.

The many benefits of acupuncture include: pain reduction, stress , tension relief, increased energy levels, stronger digestion, relief from bad habits & addictions, and boosts your immune system.

What is Astrology Reiki Healing?
Reiki is a Japanese energy technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also enhances and promotes healing. Reiki is administered by “laying of the hands” or with the hands placed above the body at specific locations. Reiki healing involves the transfer and balance of energy and is used to assist and support the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Astrology is the connection between the universe and man- a reflection of the human experience as portrayed through the planets, houses and signs. Astrology can unlock your mind and spirit to new possibilities and untapped resources you already possess.
