ACUPUNCTURE FOR THE AWAKENED SOUL
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that dates back 2,000 years. This ancient technique takes a whole-body approach and offers a natural, safe way to restore balance and promote healing. The theory behind Chinese Medicine begins with the concept of "Qi" or life force energy. This energy flows through pathways, which are called meridians within the body. These meridians provide nourishment for every cell, tissue, muscle and organ. When this flow becomes blocked or imbalanced, dis-ease occurs and symptoms may arise.
During a treatment fine, sterile needles will be inserted into specific acupoints along the meridian. Each acupoint has it's own function and directly influences the body once stimulated. This treatment will remove any obstruction within the meridian, opening it and allowing Qi to flow freely again.
WHAT MAKES ANDREA'S SESSIONS UNIQUE?
Andrea believes that in order to fully heal, one must consider the state of the mind, body & spirit. Every client comes in to the clinic with their own unique stories and history. All of our life experiences are carried within the body, and if these experiences were traumatic in any way emotions can become suppressed, blocking the natural flow of energy. When assessing each client, Andrea will scan the body for these emotional blockages, as well as consider the state of the meridians, chakras, and auric field. Through the use of Acupuncture and several other healing modalities, Andrea works with your Angels & Guides to bring in healing at a multi-dimensional level.
If you are unable to make your appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice. Kindly respect that there is a wait list, and a cancellation fee will be applied for the full value of the missed appointment.

PRE-BIRTH TREATMENTS involve a series of four treatments weekly from 37 weeks to prepare for labour. Points are used according to a woman's constitution and pregnancy history. This may include points used to assist in ripening the cervix, positioning the baby in the best presentation for labour and to help baby descend. Andrea also considers the emotional state of both mom and baby. This is evaluated by assessing the chakra system, and scanning the body for areas that may be carrying suppressed emotions. When sub-conscious blockages are cleared the body can further relax and surrender to the process.
BREECH BABIES are ideally treated between 34 - 36 weeks gestation. This is often a one off treatment with women being shown how to continue treatment at home with a moxa stick (a herb that has been shaped into a cigar like stick). Andrea tunes into the emotional body of both mom and baby as well during this treatment.
During each treatment Andrea offers her clients take home tools as well as acupressure points that will further support the natural process of labour.
