Acupuncture


How We Can Help

Looking to find balance and restore your health? Acupuncture is the perfect modality to help your body find harmony among today’s hectic demands.  With the insertion of acupuncture needles at certain points, the body and nerves become stimulated, resulting in increased motor function, improved emotions, increased circulation and much more. Acupuncture works through stimulating the energy flow through the whole body with the end goal of finding Qi, one’s vital life force. Come in for an acupuncture treatment and feel you energy run free!

 

 


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal technique that harnesses your body’s self-healing capabilities and natural bodily functions by stimulating specific points. Acupuncture promotes the flow of energy along meridians throughout the body, releasing “Qi” and balancing both yin and yang. When all these forces are balanced, the body is healthy. However, when these channels are blocked and out of balance, pain, lack of function or illness may occur. Through stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can restore proper function and act as a form of preventative medicine for a healthier, happier future.

Cupping


How We Can Help

Need some flow in your life? Does your never ending “to do list” leave you feeling stressed, tired and yearning for some sweet relief? With the ultimate goal of enhancing circulation and reducing tension – cupping may be your saving grace! Through reducing stagnation, promoting blood flow and the release of toxins, Cupping can alleviate fatigue, decrease stress, pain and much more. Release that trapped energy and help your body reach it’s maximum potential, try Cupping today!


Cupping is a treatment whereby an object creates suction to the surface of a patient’s skin. The process ascends the blood to the superficial layer of the skin, which then promotes more blood flow to the deeper areas. Parts of the body that darken the most after treatment are in most need of additional attention. Indicative of more issues that a patient is dealing with, depth and darkness of the marks can emphasize certain meridians, giving us insight into a patient’s constitution.

Osteopathy


How It Works

Osteopathy utilizes a holistic and individualized approach to heal the body as a whole. Osteopathy “guides” the body towards healing rather than “pushing” it there. Its goal is to facilitate the natural process of healing and supporting the body in reaching a healthy equilibrium.

Using physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bones, we provide manual readjustments, myofascial release and much more to provide effective and long-lasting benefits. Osteopathy uses a whole-body approach to not only treat the main concern but also  the underlying cause to heal your whole self.

Cosmetic Acupuncture


How We Can Help

Need a lift, but want something 100% natural? Cosmetic acupuncture is a healthy and safe way to return life and youth to your facial health! This preventative therapy involves the insertion of fine needles into facial tissues to increase circulation and to stimulate collagen production in the face.  Let the Zen & Tonic team help you look and feel younger through the decreased appearance of wrinkles, reduced facial tension and whole body stress!


As we age and due to the stressors of every day life, our production of collagen decreases and tension in the face increases. The face thus becomes malnourished, with the appearance of fine lines and less tone. Through stimulating the face with well-placed acupuncture needles we are able to increase circulation, improve nutrition to these tissues, relieve tension and over a number of treatments, reduce wrinkles.


  • 100% natural
  • Improved skin tone and circulation
  • No chemicals used
  • Promotes production of natural collagen and fluids
  • Reduced tension in facial muscles

Gua Sha


How We Can Help

Have that one spot you just can’t relax or free yourself of that chronic pain? At Zen & Tonic we employ Gua sha to dissipate stagnant energy, reduce chronic pain and dissolve tension. Using a uniquely designed tool, the skin and muscles are rejuvenating through scrapping blood flow in, and  inflammation out. Come in for a treatment and let us help you live pain free!


Gua sha is a massaging technique using a hand-held tool to promote circulation through rubbing and “scrapping” the skin.  The goal of this therapy is to increase your Qi and  blood flow, thus promoting healing, reduced pain, inflammation and boost immunity. The tool used is most often made of metal, buffalo horn or jade. The specific strokes and pressure employed encourage the reduction of tension and results in increased mobility and blood flow in order to relax muscles.

  • Decrease headaches
  • Firms and hydrates skin

Tuina/Acupressure


How We Can Help

Nervous about needles, but still want to enjoy the benefits of acupuncture? At Zen & Tonic we have an alternative and equally effective treatment: Acupressure! Acupressure focuses on hand techniques, to stimulate points similar to acupuncture and provide you with whole body benefits.

Often used with Acupressure, Tuina is a therapeutic massage technique used to restore harmony within the body. Using pinching and pulling techniques of the skin and muscles, it works with the body’s energy levels at a deeper level to encourage energy flow and promotion of health.

 


Through the use of hand techniques and rhythmic movements along energy channels, Tuina and Acupressure stimulate and encourage blood flow. Through stimulating specific points and channels to support whole body balance and healing, Tuina and Acupressure are perfect preventative therapies to support your health today and for the days to come.

Natural Pet Care Advice


How It Works

Animals were born to be wild, living in nature and eating foods from natural sources. Today, pets are inundated with environmental toxins, and fed food full of chemicals and fillers – ingredients that would not be part of a natural diet. Take the natural approach to your pet’s nourishment, supplementation and healing by harnessing the powers of holistic nutrition and herbs.


Since animals were created to live in nature, they respond exceptionally well to herbs and nutrients found in their natural habitat. By feeding pets the appropriate food and supplementing their diet with the correct herbs, it is possible to treat many ailments affecting your pet, from skin disorders, to emotional problems, and digestive disorders.


  • Balance glandular problems
  • Better digestion
  • Clearing skin issues
  • Decreased attitudinal problems (anxiety, aggression, etc.)
  • Encouraging longer life expectancies
  • Preventative Health
  • Resolving chronic infections
  • And much more!
