Acupuncture is an ancient medicine which originated 3,000 year ago in China. Tammy primarily treats in the Classical Five-Element tradition, in the J.R. Worsley lineage. Five-Element (sometimes called "5-Phase") acupuncture uses observation of the movement of the seasons to learn how to live more harmoniously with nature. When this happens, we can experience better physical health, as well as enhanced mental, emotional, and spiritual vitality.

Zero Balancing:

Zero Balancing (ZB) is performed while a client lies on their back, fully clothed, and uses gentle, effective touch on the skeletal structure. ZB is a type of bodywork that addresses held tension in the skeletal system (like a massage for the bones) to help the body relax and feel better. Tammy uses ZB either as a stand-alone modality, or sometimes combined with acupuncture.

Zero Balancing:

  • Is powerful and innovative body work
  • Reduces pain and discomfort
