The Inner Smile is an ancient Chinese healthcare practice that transforms damaging, negative emotions into vitality and healing through directing energy to all vital organs and glands, the complete digestive system, and the brain and nervous system. The Microcosmic Orbit circulates Chi inside your body to balance and enhance your energy.

Taoist Five Elements in Your Life

The Taoist Five Elements (Phases) are found everywhere in life: our personalities, foods, colors, emotioins, and vital organs... Feng Shui... Mother Nature... the Universe, and more. Understanding the interactions of the Elements (Phases) and ways to balance their energies within our bodies and our lives can help us live happier and healthier--physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Healing Therapies Are Now on a Sliding Scale
Chi Nei Tsang ... Transcutaneous Acupuncture ... Healing Touch ... Reiki Accunect ... or a blend of these therapies are available on a sliding scale of $60 to $100.

Please pay what you can afford. All sessions are 1.0-1.5 hours. A healing session is especially beneficial at the time of seasonal changes.

See Classes and Calendar for details.

Change is inevitable. Navigating change underlays everything we do in life. The ancients understood this. Through study of the human body and human nature, they developed simple, yet profound ways to transform internal energies to maintain a healthy relationship of body and mind, and achieve healing and a balanced approach to life. Join me on retreat, in classes, or one-on-one to explore these healing practices. They can change your life, as they have mine!
