Tammy incorporates her 20+ years of knowledge in holistic health to make recommendations for optimal mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

Acupuncture

You will feel gentle stimulation of energetic points on the body to promote treatment of a variety of conditions. Acupuncture is practiced throughout the world and has a history of over 2000 years of development. These points on the body’s surface correspond with organ function and when stimulated activate the body’s inherent wisdom to bring successful treatment. Western scientific studies have proven the effectiveness of acupuncture for a wide variety of medical conditions. Most insurance is accepted.

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture

Mei Zen means beautiful person. Cosmetic acupuncture is a great alternative to Botox or fillers to help reduce or eliminate the appearance of sags, bags, and fine lines and wrinkles. Specific points are used to increase blood circulation and collagen production. The special technique creates a microtrauma in the dermis which stimulates the skin's fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin to repair, heal, and rebuild the area. The results are the reduction of fine lines and softening of deep wrinkles. Cosmetic acupuncture addresses the internal and external causes of aging.

A single treatment "acupuncture facial" will brighten skin tone giving you a refreshed vibrant look that may last a few days to a week or so. For longer lasting results, the 10-treatment series is encouraged. View photos and discover more about cosmetic acupuncture here.

Nutritional Counseling

Utilizing Chinese herbal dietetics and current medical research, foods are recommended for you to optimize health and wellness. This is not a meal plan or diet. We discuss the energetic of food and the types that are best to consume for your pattern and those to be avoided. Food is medicine!

Chinese Herbal Formulas

From the extensive pharmacy comprising over 275 FDA regulated and tested Chinese herbs, you will have your own custom formula to treat your individual needs.  Internal formulas are compounded to treat a variety of conditions from pain to internal medical conditions.  External application compounds are also available to apply to areas of pain.

Cupping 

Glass cups are placed on the back to alleviate stress and tension.  Cupping invigorates blood flow and melts away tight muscles, release toxins and stagnation. Cupping marks usually disappear in 4-7 days. 

Gua sha

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment where the skin is scraped to stimulate the release of toxins.  Gua sha helps stimulate the blood flow and the healing process. Gua sha feels similar to deep tissue massage and invigorates the blood flow and melts away tight muscles.

Face Reading Consultations

Discover the hidden energy within yourself.  The face reveals the state of your organs and your given talents and abilities.  Obtain clues to the inner you and thrive on the path of life. Understand your true nature, release emotions that are stuck or being held on to, discover inherited talents or gifts/abilities, identify areas of health concerns, and allow the Shen (Spirit) to flourish. Tammy is trained in the Lillian Pearl Bridges Family Lineage. Available in person or long-distance.
