Traditional Chinese Medicine is a healing system rooted in thousands of years of history, practice, careful study, and observation of nature.

TCM is based on the premise that what happens in nature also happens in our bodies. It is a comprehensive and effective system and the fastest growing healthcare system in the world today. Modalities such as acupuncture and herbs are used to balance the body’s vital energies (qi), and facilitate the body’s own innate healing ability. Additional tools used are gua sha, shonishin, moxibustion and cupping, among others.

“Shoshana is fantastic! I highly recommend her for acupuncture, massage, and nutritional support. Her treatments have helped me and my children enormously. She has a profound wisdom well beyond her years and a keen sense of intuition. She is a gentle yet powerful healer.  She is caring, attentive, and really takes extra steps to ensure her care is beneficial. We are so grateful to have her in our lives!”  From Yelp
