Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi (the body's vital energy). By inserting needles at specific points on the body, practitioners are able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itself A growing body of research is showing acupuncture to be beneficial for many health conditions. 

Japanese-style acupuncture is different than Chinese-style acupuncture in that it emphasizes the use of palpatory diagnostic methods which provide the acupuncturist and patient an immediate measure as to the effectiveness of their treatment. Japanese-style acupuncture uses thinner needles and shallower insertion.  As well, non-needling techniques can be used for children or for patients in which needling is contraindicated.

Lynn practices Kiiko Matsumoto-style acupuncture, is a specific form of Japanese acupuncture. Lynn has been fortunate to have spent several hundred hours as clinical assistant to world-reknowned master teacher, Ms. Matsumoto. 



Literally meaning "finger-pressure" in Japanese, shiatsu is a form of bodywork in which therapists use their palms, fingers and elbow, even knees and feet, to treat the body with comfortable pressure and stretching for the client to reduce muscular tension, improve circulation and treat a variety of conditions.

Shiatsu can lessen the detrimental effects of chronic stress and promote relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system through long holding pressure. This helps our bodies to deeply relax and recover from every day stresses of life and work. Shiatsu is also effective in treating stress related conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive complaints; anxiety and depression; headaches and migraines; menstrual irregularities; insomnia and fatigue.
