What our clients are saying about us

“I appreciated that Amy took the time to review my history and learn about my goals–which really just felt like chatting with another friend about what’s going on in my life! Amy knows her stuff and her compassion and enthusiasm for what she does shows! Definitely one of the best massages I’ve had. It’s so worth the drive up from Sac to come here and I’m definitely looking forward to my next session!”

How does Chinese Medicine work?

Taking an upstream approach to your health requires us to look at what internal & external factors might be causing your symptoms. Addressing the problem upstream can eliminate some or all of the symptoms downstream. Chinese Medicine was designed to treat each person as an individual. Your headache does not have the same root cause as someone else’s headache. By looking at the root cause and treating the Chinese Medicine pattern that is creating your symptoms, patients will receive more effective and longer lasting results.

Eliminating symptoms and improving quality of life is typically our clients’ goal. Treating your individual diagnosis allows us to correct a cluster of symptoms you didn’t know were related! Clients frequently seek help with the following symptoms:

  • Insomnia
  • Pain (neck, hip, back, etc)
  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Digestive Issues
  • Fertility Challenges
  • Menstrual Cycle Irregularity / Pain
  • Stress / Anxiety / Depression
  • Chronic Injuries
  • Sports Injuries
  • Quitting Smoking / Food Cravings
  • Weight Loss
