Acupuncture is the insertion of filiform needles at specific junctions on the body to induce a physiological change. A typical acupuncture treatment lasts from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the treatment.
Herbal formulas will vary in cost depending on the types of herb prescribed. I use granule formulations for ease of use, but can order dried herbs to cook at home if preferred. Typically, both acupuncture and herbal remedies are used in conjunction. However, I can offer just herbal remedies after an initial consultation.
Zi Wei Dou Shu is the astrological system that I learned in conjunction with my acupuncture and herbal studies. For a 1 hour consultation with natal chart calculation, the cost is $150. This is the initial cost. Afterwards, for follow up questions, the rate is my standard hourly rate.
Qigong is the usage of sound, visualization, and movement to balance the physical, mental, and spiritual processes of the human experience. My training focuses mostly the Five Animal Frolics, however I incorporate many diverse traditions including Taijichuan, Long Fist, Shao Lin standing postures, Dragon and Tiger, aikido, and meditation. Usually these techniques are integrated with acupuncture treatments. However, I can teach individual and group lessons on request.
