The 5 Branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine


Working with the electromagnetic frequency of the body. Using metal tools and known points to modulate under- or overactive areas. Many people think of acupuncture as working with the nerves. While it certainly has an impact on the nervous system it is not my impression that acupuncture works through stimulating nerves. Rather, it activates an overarching system; the electromagnetic system, which influences so many of the body’s systems. Through feeling the pulse and other diagnostic tools the acupuncturist can feel where imbalances are in the body and what type of imbalance it is. By understanding how points on the channels influence the entire system as well as how they relate to each other the acupuncturist is able to impact the movement of energy in the system and thus also the pulse.


Working with energy and movement to promote circulation of blood, lymph, and our body’s innate electromagnetism. I offer this through CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY, NEAR INFRARED & RED LIGHT THERAPY. I have observed these modalities in combination with acupuncture to have profound impacts with pain, healing, and supporting the body’s natural detoxification methods.


Manual manipulation of body tissue. I incorporate elements of MAYA ABDOMINAL THERAPY, CUPPING, AND GUA SHA. I offer links below explaining more about these traditional methods of relieving stagnation and promoting flow in the body.



BIOENERGETIC TESTING uses hair and saliva analysis to identify stressed systems; energetic sensitivities, nutritional imbalances, resonating toxins & pathogens, and hormonal imbalances. It also checks for RESONATING BALANCING REMEDIES which include herbs and homeopathic remedies. I work with Creating Balanced Health for this testing. If you are ready to have a bioenergetic testing analysis with me, you can use the affiliate code PAUSELISTEN for $20 off any test, and PAUSELISTEN5 for $5 off a remedy order at www.creatingbalancedhealth.com.

  • Photobiomodulation therapy uses light frequencies that have been demonstrated to relieve pain, promote healing, increase fertility, and reduce wrinkles by stimulating ATP production, reducing pro-inflammatory factors, increase stem cell production, and increase microcirculation.
