Anxiety & Depression
One of the biggest challenges the COVID-19 pandemic brings is to our mental health. Feelings of isolation and uncertainty can fuel already existing anxiety and depression, and make it much worse.
We treat patients using methods for deep relaxation, while also taking great care to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The effect of massage therapy on biochemistry is shown clearly in research, with an average of 31% decrease in cortisol levels (a hormone produced in your body during stressful times), and a 28% increase in serotonin levels (a hormone that improves sleep, elevates mood, and aids in digestion).
While we recommend that you see a therapist / counselor, we successfully treat the following:
Loss of Appetite / Increased Appetite
Headaches / Migraines

Acupuncture helps to bring down stress levels quickly as it turns on the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and digest part of your nervous system). Chinese herbs aid in balancing hormones, achieving deeper rest, and giving the immune system a boost of energy.
Special breathing techniques and yoga poses tap into deeply held reservoirs of energy and give you a routine to follow so you can feel and maintain wellness.
