Insomnia

Open for business (virtually)

Don’t let your health challenges or aches and pains get worse while we are on shut down. I am available to help you!!

Someday I’ll design a bodysuit that I can communicate with remotely and have it needle specific points based on my direction. But as of now, I haven’t done that. I could create tiny voodoo dolls of each of you, and perform acupuncture that way.

But I think I’ll be able to help you the most with personalized treatment plans.

Your personalized treatment plan will be specific for your condition including some combination of:

1) “traditional” acupressure including what points, how to locate them, how to apply pressure, whether to use magnets (magnets can be ordered online for delivery);

2) auricular treatment using ear seeds or magnets;

3) recommendations for foods, teas and herbs/spices based on their Chinese medicine properties;

4) suggestions for essential oils to diffuse or apply to acupressure points;

5) coaching on how to perform cupping and/or guasha (tools can be ordered tor delivery);

6) extensive lifestyle recommendations that you won’t find from a preliminary Google search – things like humming exercises for seasonal allergies/immune system boost, details on the 5 pillars of my Get Some Shut Eye method, hara abdominal massage for digestive issues, breathing exercises for stress management, guidance on living as an empath, and connections to numerous resources. You know I’m always learning something new or connecting with a new expert.

Are you unsure whether I can help you? Give me a call at 815.814.1319, and we can discuss what types of assistance I can provide virtually.

My online schedule has been updated so you can schedule virtual sessions now.

You are also welcome to call or text me at 815.814.1319 to schedule.

Stay healthy!

Get Some Shut Eye Kit

Are you yawning through the day only to hit the pillow and be wide awake? When you finally fall asleep, do you toss and turn, and wake up feeling like you haven’t slept at all? Do you use sleeping pills to little effect and with fear that it will lead to more severe problems down the road?

You’ve read all of the information on the internet, and have tried the standard recommendations – no electronics an hour before bed, listening to white noise, keeping the temperature in your bedroom under 68 – but you still can’t sleep.

It’s time to order the “Get Some Shut Eye” kit. The kit was developed using my knowledge of Chinese medicine and my experience working with clients with sleep issues. The kit includes my e-book covering the 5 pillars of sleep which includes activities/exercises to improve your sleep. The kit also includes a 30 day supply of doTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels, doTERRA Serenity Restful Sleep essential oil blend, access to videos of exercises to calm your mind, and ear seeds which can be placed on acupuncture points to impact your sleep, along with instructions about how and where to place the seeds. The kit has a value of $200, and is available for an investment of $87 (plus shipping). If you purchase the kit now, you will also receive a bonus sample of Sleepmix tea.

If you are currently getting acupuncture treatments for insomnia with me and would like to purchase the kit, you can purchase a kit in my office for a discounted investment of $57.

If you want the sleep kit to be sent to an address other than the one listed on your PayPal account, make sure you update the “shipping to” address before submitting. Kits will only be shipped within the 48 contiguous states.
