CHINESE MEDICINE

Our goal with Chinese herbal medicine is to bring you back into a state of balance and health. You are unique and, therefore, each herbal medicine is tailored your individual needs and integrated in the overall treatment plan.

Extending back thousands of years Chinese Medicine offers a rich heritage and history in healthcare and healing. It offers a root-level attack rather a symptom cover. It adds a layer of patient safety due to fewer or no side effects, treats the actual cause of illness rather than suppressing the symptoms.

Step 1: Symptomatic Care

ESALEN ® MASSAGE

No matter where you are in life’s journey, the mind-body-spirit-heart connection is vital to wholeness and wellness.

MODALITIES

Continually evolving over the last 50 years, Esalen Massage uses long integrating strokes to give a sense of wholeness, allowing the receiver to accept more specific deeper work and let go of the every day stresses and tensions of life.  In her massage work, Daniela often includes gentle rocking, passive joint mobilization, deep structural work, cranial sacral therapy, and energy balancing techniques, enabling her clients to sink into deeper states of relaxation, where healing can easily occur.

Where appropriate CranioSacral Therapy can be added to the treatment. It is a gentle, hands-on method that releases deep tensions in the body and improves holistic health by accessing the craniosacral system — the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.It supports the body’s innate capacity to self-organize and to heal.

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE AND TREATABLE CONDITIONS

  • Relaxation and stress relief
  • Improved circulation
  • Treat sports injuries (faster healing time)
  • Sleep better

 


COMBINATION OF ACUPUNCTURE AND MASSAGE

In combining massage and acupuncture, we create a state of healing that is greater than the simple sum of the two parts. First, the massage work prepares the body to receive the benefits of acupuncture in a deeper way. Then, the acupuncture treatment triggers a chain reaction that releases the body’s own endorphins, analgesics and anti-inflammatories into the problem areas. When combined, the benefits of massage and acupuncture are amplified and longer lasting. This can bring a very powerful release of pain and tension or it can just be a very special way to relax and restore body, mind and spirit.

TESTIMONIAL

The first time I went to Daniela, I was 9 years old. I’ve been seeing her for over 13 years now. Thankfully, I have a mother who believes in nurturing good health to avoid getting sick in the first place. And it really works! I’ve gone to Daniela for massage, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine. My favorite thing is to get the massage/acupuncture combo. I fall into such deep relaxation and it feels amazing. When I know I’m going to fly home to see my family, I always remember to ask mom to book an appointment with Daniela before I even get on the plane.
