  • providing you with a deeply calming and relaxing treatment with yields powerful results
  • allowing you to apply pressure and stimulation to acupuncture points for needle phobic patients
  • combining with acupuncture to strengthen your treatments, speeding up the healing process
  • allowing you to confirm your diagnosis and treatment through the use of your hands and your enhanced ability to feel the body’s qi and Blood imbalances.
