As if your experience at Roots to Sky isn’t relaxing enough, come enjoy a break from your stresses with options such as aromatherapy, guided meditations, and these Eastern relaxation techniques…
Traditional Chinese Therapy Options
Increasingly popular in the mainstream media, cupping acts as a soothing ‘reverse-massage’. Warmly lifting the skin from the fascia to break apart underlying aches, and gliding techniques to deepen your experience.
Therapeutic scraping of the skin, muscle & fascia to soften stagnations and relax tension. In these Spa Sessions the after-effects on the skin are kept to a minimum – the goal is relaxation not excessive invigoration.
In China, the word “acupuncture” does not refer to needles alone, but also to the less-common (in North America) but equally powerful technique of “moxa”. Mugwort herb is burned in various ways on or near the acupuncture points & channels to warm the points and channels to melt away your troubles.
Using even finer needles than standard sessions, a minimal amount of the most calming acupuncture points are selected to maximize your parasympathetic downshift.

While some may be skeptical at my use of “Energy medicine”, I continue to offer this service as it was my first “training” in alternative modalities beginning shortly after high school. While I have obviously advanced since then – if anything I now see it from the therapeutic perspective of “laying on the hands”, the value of human touch in the healing process. I’ll break this down for skeptics in a future article, for now, simply take it or leave it – but please do not write off the rest of my practice based on what some might consider pseudo-science.
So energywork can be seen as a great complement to your acupuncture sessions, deepening your relaxation and healing experience… I blend my training in Daoist Energywork, Tantra, Reiki, and Medical Qi Gong with my knowledge of the maps of your acupuncture channel energetic anatomy, to provide you with deeper intuitive insights into your condition, as well as enhance the work of the needles to further improve the flow of Qi. As it is said in the ancient Chinese texts “If Qi flows, there is no pain; if there is pain, there is lack of Qi flow.”
I am a certified 4th Level Gokuikaiden Gendai Reiki Master, practising since 2005. I received weekly training in the Gendai Reiki system & Daoist energetics from 2005-6, and have since attuned & trained dozens of students. I have also received intensive training by the incredible Kenneth Cohen, author of ‘The Way of Qi Gong’ and North America’s leading Qi Gong practitioner and researcher, as well as multiple Chi Nei Tsang trainings, earning a Medical Qigong diploma from the Institute of Traditional Medicine. My years of personal experience with various energy systems, my passion for the accurate history and traditions of Reiki, and my in-depth skill with the acupuncture channels make me a trusted and experienced intuitive energetic anatomy healer, with many remarkable experiences to share.
