I do not usually see clients on Saturday or Sunday but will make an exception for regular clients who have an emergency!
I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In order to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:
If you are unable to keep an appointment please let me know as soon as possible--preferably 24 hours-- so I can schedule someone else in that time slot. I understand that emergencies happen (I may have to cancel sometimes too!) so I try to be flexible, but if it becomes habitual I will need you to pay for the missed appointment. No shows are expected to pay for the full session unless there was an emergency. Due to the pandemic--I am asking that if you feel like you may be getting sick, or have been exposed to Covid, please call me to cancel and I will not charge you for the missed appointment.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session.
We look forward to serving you!

Qigong and Acupressure have their roots in the ancient Daoist traditions of China which taught the unity of body, mind and spirit. From this holistic perspective, good health and happiness are the result of free flowing, balanced energy. They come from traditional knowledge yet have been confirmed by Western scientific research to have a number of health benefits.
Qigong is a gentle yet effective program for improving our health and energy and calming our minds through simple stretches and exercises, breathing and relaxation, self-acupressure and massage, visualization, and meditation. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. Qigong's great appeal is that anyone can benefit-- from the most physically challenged to the super athlete, regardless of ability, age, belief system or life circumstances. Qigong can be practiced anywhere, at any time--there is no need to buy special clothing or equipment or to join a club. It can also be practiced standing, sitting or lying down, making it particularly useful for those with physical limitations.
Greetings! I am still asking clients and students to wear masks in the treatment room, since it is a small space and we are close contact. I sanitize after every session and air the room out. I am continuing the same policy I started at the beginning of the pandemic in regards to cancellations—if you feel the least bit sick or you have possibly been exposed to Covid or other serious virus, you can call and cancel even at the last minute and there will be no cancellation fee. Same for students—I will refund your deposit if you are sick! Please wash hands thoroughly before a session or class!
A note on Holistic health: As a holistic practitioner I go by the original meaning of holistic, which is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. For health this means considering the body, mind and spirit are one, and that we as individuals are connected to other people and to the environment. It does NOT mean eschewing modern medicine. All medical and health decisions must be made by balancing the risks vs. benefit for any procedure, medication or natural healing methods. I chose to have the vaccine mainly because it offers protection to those who I am in contact with in order to protect them (even more than I am doing it to protect myself). So many people have died or are suffering long term effects from having Covid infection that it is irresponsible in my opinion to not get the vaccine—for most people. There are of course always people who should be exempt from the vaccine because of serious health issues—in that case it is even more vital that they practice safe measures such as mask wearing and social distancing at all times –not just when coming for an appointment!
I also know that herbs and acupressure can be very useful for helping with the symptoms associated with Covid. I am sure that I made it through having Covid without any serious issues because of my use of herbal medicine and doing acupressure on myself, and doing Qigong when I had enough energy to do so. Reducing stress is a big factor for helping your immune system function well and acupressure and massage are excellent for doing that!
I hope to see you soon!
