Acupuncture can help you get back into the groove of back to school by helping to regulate sleep/wake cycles (saying goodbye to daily summer sleeping in), helping to ease your body through the stresses of this time, and increasing energy and motivation to help you get done what you need to get done.

Ayurveda is a science of healing that is based, in part, on how to keep the mind, body, and spirit in balance during the changing seasons. Transitions, particularly such as from summer to fall, or from summer break to back to school, can make maintaining one's equilibrium and balance challenging. Ayurveda is a tool that supports health and wellness holistically during the transitions and throughout the season.

Back to school time can be stressful for both parents & children, and that can compromise immunity - as well as create unnecessary sleepless nights & anxiousness during the day. Clinical nutrition uses a preventative approach by using a combination of targeted nutrients & herbs to boost immune function - as well as to support restful sleep & modulate stress hormones - an also using meal planning & healthy food choices to reduce stress & nourish the body properly. I work with parents to support their health & therefore support the health of their children - kind of like the idea of "putting your oxygen mask on before helping others”!

Homeopathic remedies give our immune system a boost of energy to increase our health and wellness. This includes increasing our ability to shift with the changes of a new season or a new routine as well as assisting us with stress, anxiety, flu, allergies, etc.

Massage is very helpful to relax and de-stress during back to school time. Changing schedules and changing seasons can disrupt both emotional and physical balance, and massage is a perfect way to bring that balance back!

Mindfulness will not instruct you to change your life circumstances or magically reduce your commitments or life stressors. Instead, it will teach you a way to better respond to these experiences so that they are livable. By retraining how our bodies and minds respond to stress, we can free ourselves from the most damaging aspects of stress in our lives.
The world’s first online mindfulness summit. The summit is a free online event that will be held 1st to 31st October. Watch and listen to the wisdom of Tara Brach, Ruby Wax, Joseph Goldstein, Professor Mark Williams, Dr. Rick Hanson, Dr. Daniel Siegel, Professor Paul Gilbert, Tami Simon, Elisha Goldstein and Vidyamala Burch, to name a few. Enjoy being led in meditation by the world’s best teachers, all from the comfort of your own home. To register you free place at the summit now go to http://themindfulnesssummit.com

Fall can be a time of year when we feel as though our lives are getting back to "normal." The pace of summer slows, we fall back into the routine of the school year cycle, and we begin to take stock of what we have manifested during the earlier months of the year.
In Qi Gong and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the energy associated with Fall and the Lung/Large Intestine organ system, plus their attendant meridians, represents our ability to create structure and clear, healthy boundaries in our lives. This is why we generally begin to feel a greater sense of "normalcy," as schedules are becoming more ordered, and rhythms more regular.
QI Gong Therapy can aid you to make this transition with greater ease, as it helps to remove blockages that cause imbalance in the energy (Qi) flow in the body. These obstructions create disharmony in and among the body's organ systems, which then manifest as physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms.
Practicing self-care is the best thing one can do for one's self and family. When our well is continually replenished, we have copious stores of energy to offer those whom we love and serve in all realms of our life.

A Reiki session offers you time to relax and begin breathing deeper again. Reiki is generally translated to mean Life Force (or Universe) Energy. During a Reiki session, the practitioner will connect with this energy and offer it to the client’s healing system. The Reiki practitioner does not direct or influence the Life Force Energy. We trust that our systems have an intelligence that is always working toward our highest levels of wellness. Our healing system will use this boost of energy wherever it is most needed.
