Stacey offers a variety of services. Please contact her with questions.
Acupuncture – Small sterile, single use, stainless steel needles are inserted into the skin at specific points on the body. Acupuncture theory is based on meridians or channels that run through the body, connecting the head to the feet, the hands to the chest and a little bit in between. These channels carry Qi/ Chi/energy/life force through the body to balance and heal the person. By placing a needle along the channels the acupuncturist can elicit a healing response in the body.
Chinese and Western Herbal Medicine – Using a combination of Chinese and Western/ European herbs, Stacey will custom design a formula to fit an individuals needs. Stacey is very particular about the quality of herbs that she uses and tries to get local and organic plants or products to work with. Many of the medicines that she uses are from plants that she has grown in her own gardens, or harvested from the wild.
Cupping- An amazing therapy that can help relieve pain, muscle tension, scar tissue, and help to encourage circulation of blood and lymph in the body. Using glass cups a suction is created, pulling the skin, the fascia and the muscle up into the cup. This suction is made by placing a small flame quickly into the cup and then removed before placing it on the skin. The cups are either left on the skin, or moved around for several minutes and then removed. It is a unique sensation, but feels very relaxing.
Singing Bowls – While in Nepal, Stacey studied with a traditional Singing Bowl practitioner. Singing bowls use sound and vibration to help resolve pain, depression and optimize overall well-being.
Moxibustion – A heat therapy using an herb called Mugwort. There are many forms of Moxa that can be used. The herb is burned over an area of the body to help move the congestion that may be causing the pain or discomfort. Especially useful with Arthritis, chronic pain, menstrual conditions, turning a baby in the last weeks of pregnancy and many other conditions.
