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.

Face Reading Consultations

Discover the hidden energy within yourself and learn how to fully stand in your power.  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.

Holistic Wellness & Spiritual Coaching

Holistic Wellness & Spiritual Coaching is a powerful practice that helps you access your full potential in a deep transformative way, activate your spiritual power, and make potent transformational changes. Together we explore the connection to mind-body-spirit, identify the root of the physical, emotional, and mental blockages that are limiting you, address the challenges you have experienced, and reset dysfunctional mechanisms to achieve your goals. We address fears, limiting thoughts, traumas, chronic physical and emotional pain, family relationships, ancestral influences, and more to move into transformational healing opportunities. Some of the tools we will use during our coaching include: breathwork and meditation, guided imagery and visualization, diet and food recommendations, exercise and movement (qigong), trauma release -MA technique, and more. Gain inspiration to live in harmony to your dreams, rather than staying stuck in your fears. You are so much more than the false identities you have created for yourself!

These sessions are for anyone who; is open to holistic healing techniques, want to understand their Inner Healer, feel better, have more energy and have a more fulfilling life, is willing to work on themselves but is not sure how to start or how to stay on track, feels stuck on their healing journey, wants to shift from victim mentality to personal empowerment, wants encouragement, understanding, undivided attention and guidance on your healing journey.

Nutritional Counseling

Utilizing Chinese herbal dietetics and current medical research, a nutritional plan is created for you to optimize health and wellness. Food is medicine.

Breathwork

Shamanic Breathwork™ is a key component to living an empowered, passionate and transformative life. The breath helps us move through the cycles of life - incubation, pressure, transformation, celebration and surrender. Using the power of the breath and powerful, evocative music, your soul is moved to show you the unconscious power of the inner healer. Everything is energy and through this modality, you experience exactly what your soul's evolution needs at the time. Combine this with an art process and personal processing and you are on the road to conscious change.

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.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

One of the best methods to help release trauma from the body! A gentle form of bodywork that works to balance the nervous system, relive deep pain and tension, release trauma, and bring optimal function to the joints and tissues of the body. The technique uses light pressure, 5 grams - or the weight of a nickle, releasing restrictions from soft tissues that surround the central nervous system.

The central nervous system is heavily influenced by the craniosacral system - the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. The body endures daily stresses that it strains to compensate for, leading the soft tissues of the craniosacral system to tighten and distort. These distortions cause tension resulting in restrictions in the body creating a barrier to optimal health and performance. This is experienced as pain, or any other numerous dysfunctions.

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, similar to cupping.  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.

Acutonics

Acutonics is an integrated approach to health care grounded in Oriental medicine, psychology, science, cosmological studies and sound healing principles. This effective non-invasive methodology works with vibratory energy created through sound. The sounds of the Universe are brought into the clinical setting using precision calibrated tuning forks. Acupressure points and chakras provide noninvasive access into these core energy systems within the body. The planets provide musical intervals, archetypes, psychological depth, and correspondences that help us to fine-tune the therapeutic frequencies that are applied to the body.

Nourishing the Roots

Awaken your full potential with this transformational session - a powerful alchemical combination of healing and spiritual practice. This special new synergistic approach includes acupuncture, shamanism, craniosacral therapy, sound healing, reiki, chakra balancing and aromatherapy which enables your spirit access to the multidimensional healing vibrations of renewal. 

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is patient-centered medical healing. It is an approach to healthcare and not a separate medical profession. The focus of functional medicine is the optimal functioning of the body and its organs. Tammy reviews labs, and combines her bio-medical knowledge with Chinese medical knowledge to guide treatment. Herbs, supplements, and medical food are recommended as well as dietary upgrades. Functional Medicine consultations are scheduled separate from acupuncture treatment. Some insurances may cover this, many do not.

BEMER

BEMER Physical Vasular Therapy positively influences the way your blood flows through the tiniest blood vessels (capillaries) in your body and optimizes your immune system. 

Without adequate oxygen and nutrients and the efficient removal of waste products, your cells cannot metabolize correctly, less ATP is manufactured in the cells and the intra-cellular space becomes acidic. This is the underlying cause of most non-communicable diseases (chronic diseases of lifestyle).

BEMER effectively optimizes micro-circulation aiding increased oxygen and nutrients to your organ systems in eight minutes, with no known side effects.
