Joesph is super fun (ask Sarah), and is great with all levels of abilities.
Dr. Allen is amazing. I've tried acupuncture a few times,with no real results. Within one session with him I felt so much of the sluggishness and fatigue in my body release, and over time, the health concerns I had began to heal. He is also such a wonderful person, caring and takes the time to really explain things from a TCM perspective, and very generous with his time.

Will is also amazing! He is truly gifted in both Reiki and massage. Having been to many RMTs his style is pretty unique. He has an intuitive sense of what's going on in my body, bringing my awareness inwards, and engaging my breath to breathe through the tension. He also creates such a warm, comfortable environment.

Im so grateful to have met and been treated by these awesome guys 💕

REPOST from the fab• .streu.tcm
•••

i've been considering the process of digestion & nutrient breakdown a lot more, & how to optimize that. our spleen & stomach (digestive organs in TCM) have a capacity for consumption/digestion. whether that be audio, visual, food, sensory - all forms of consumption for the body. we only have the energy to focus on 1 of theses processes of digestion at a time.

today i sat & forced myself to eat in silence, free of distraction & lemme fell ya, it was uncomfortable. i had to actually tune in to my body & listen - instead of letting the mind override the innate signals. i had to focus & not only DIGEST this singular process but also ACCEPT the nourishment it was providing.

it got me thinking.. I have resistance to true nourishment. sure on paper it looks perfect, i'm going through the right motions when it comes to diet & nutrition. but the energy behind it - the love, the care, the worthiness - were missing. as such, my actions were empty. & i was missing out on all the true benefits.

i think it all comes back to worthiness. the understanding that we are worthy of deep nourishment & care. acceptance of the fact that until we give this nourishment to ourselves, we won't be able to accept it from any outside sources.

when you allow yourself to accept nourishment (physically & energetically) your body responds in a new way. breakdown of food improves & nutrient assimilation increases. our energy, focus, clarity & vitality improve. we feel mentally & physically satisfied, have fewer cravings. we start to believe in our bodies signals - listening & responding in tune with exactly what it needs.

i often have to remind myself that it's not the big ticket items (weekly massages, expensive skin care, wellness spas) that will bring me the feeling of being taken care of, unless I can find it in the little moments. it's the little moments where i have the opportunity to offer authentic care to myself that will shift everything.

the energy & intention behind our actions matters - arguably more than the action it self.

take action with love. with compassion. with gratitude. cause youuuu beautiful soul, you deserve it✨

“Did you know that the face is the only area where the skin is directly connected to the muscles? Acupuncture works deeply and comprehensively on the muscle tissue so that we are able to release tension and spasms, restore symmetry, improve muscle tone, and ultimately reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles or sagging…”

Common symptoms include: sinus pressure, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes and sneezing ⁠

Did you know Acupuncture can help? ⁠

Reposting these wise words by ✨ • .streu.tcm • ✨




just because your symptoms don’t fit in to a particular box or diagnosis doesn’t mean that your experience is not real, painful, & life altering⁠

it’s unfortunately all too common that we feel lost, hopeless or discouraged after being told countless times that “the lab results came back normal” or that “nothing abnormal was found”, despite feeling really unwell. it’s invalidating & further perpetuates any feelings of shame or frustration associated with dis-ease in the first place⁠

as feelings of shame or frustration take residence in the body, they encourage tension & resistance - furthering any existing dis-ease ⁠

though the advancements in testing & diagnosis are remarkable, they don’t hold a candle to the intricacies of the functioning of the human body. we are only scraping the surface in understanding what our physiology is truly capable of⁠

your inner knowing, that “gut feeling”, is far wiser than ANY quantitative test. if your body is whispering that something is off, listen to it. don’t silence or ignore it for fear of being written off⁠

lean in to it. hold space for it. allow feelings of safety. cultivate compassion for yourself & what you’re going through⁠

it’s real. ⁠

& by the same token, it doesn’t have to be this way forever⁠

we don’t have to label the body in order to guide it back to harmony⁠
