We offer many therapies to assist you having your best, happiest and most healthful life. Toward that end, the services help with a wide range of physical, emotional and psychological aspects of yourself that may enjoy care.

Each practitioner has written about his/her offerings for you. However, an overview:  Acupuncture (both Chinese and Japanese style), Chinese herbal formulas, Psychotherapy, Counseling, therapeutic groups, Neuromuscular Therapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, Melting Muscles Massage Therapy,  Hot Stone massage therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Reiki, Yoga Therapy for the  individual and specialty Yoga small group classes (i.e. Better Backs).

Our newest addition is Celeste Rogers,LMT,  who is not only a great massage therapist but the only Trager practitioner in town. You receive Trager work fully clothed (without shoes of course). I describe it as a rocking motion which is performed and I Love It!  I literally felt it for 3 days after receiving the full 1 1/2 hour session. The ease with which I moved, how my body felt so loose internally and so comfortable inside was amazing.  People with fibromyalgia find it especially  gentle, helpful and freeing.

Again, welcome. We consider it a privilege to give you our best care and service.
