HAVE PAIN?

Come by for a massage and acupuncture to alleviate your current pain, and join our loose fit class to learn how to open up your joints, elongate your muscles, and clear stagnation in the body.

LOOKING FOR STRESS RELIEF?

Come by for a massage and acupuncture to calm your mind and relax your body. Leave with a natural remedy that will help you reduce your stress every day.

DEALING WITH DIGESTIVE SYMPTOMS SUCH AS HEARTBURN/GERD, BLOATING, CONSTIPATION/DIARRHEA?

Schedule a thorough evaluation to assess what treatment will be most beneficial for you. Jenn will provide supplements and herbs that will help you improve your digestive function, plus a Chinese herbal formula that will expedite your progress. She will also advise on what dietary strategy is indicated based on your presentation. Add an acupuncture session to begin feeling better right away.

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF DIET IS IDEAL FOR YOU RIGHT NOW?

Schedule a thorough evaluation to assess what type of a diet will help you improve your health most right now, complete with recommended calories, macronutrient ratios, and specifics on fat and carbohydrate sources. If you include your most recent labs, Jenn can provide additional guidance in regards to fat sources (saturated versus monounsaturated), and optimizing nutrient deficiencies. She will also provide guidance on your movement program and the necessary calories, sugar/or fat needs for your energy output.

WANT TO TAKE A PROBIOTIC, BUT NOT SURE WHICH ONE MAKES SENSE FOR YOU?

Come by and pick up one only available to practitioners, or schedule a Standard Evaluation to target what strain will be most helpful to you.

WANT TO REVERSE YOUR CHRONIC DISEASE?

If your doctor is telling you that you need to improve your health to avoid medication, Jenn can help. As a practitioner of root cause medicine, she can help you determine what diet, supplement, herbal, and lifestyle program will get you on the path to reversing your disease. Schedule a thorough evaluation to get started.

IS YOUR CHILD DEALING WITH A SYMPTOM THAT YOU WANT TO ADDRESS NATURALLY?

Schedule a pediatric evaluation to assess what treatment is best based on your child’s presentation.

HAVE A COLD OR FLU?

Instead of taking over the counter medications that just block symptoms and have unwanted chemicals, come by for an acupuncture treatment to alleviate your symptoms, and leave with a natural remedy to help you get better faster. Also take home remedies that you may use at initial onset to help you avoid getting sick as bad, or at all.

SUFFERING WITH ALLERGIES?

Come by for an acupuncture treatment to alleviate your symptoms, and leave with a natural remedy that works with your body, versus blocking histamine and feeling drowsy. Also take home tools you may use to minimize future episodes.

Wellness is more than just getting treated and taking remedies.
