TCM is an ancient and comprehensive healthcare system with over 4,000 years of history in treating and preventing disease. TCM incorporates several treatment modalities including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage), Cupping, Moxabustion, Gua Sha, and Life Style Counseling, including Chinese Nutrition and Exercise. TCM can be used to treat many conditions, ranging from sports injuries, gynecological issues, fertility, digestive discomfort, stress and migraines. According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture alone can be used to treat over forty different illnesses.

Many frequently asked questions pertaining to Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology include the following: how many treatments are needed, does it hurt, how do I take the herbs, what type of needles are used, how quickly can I see results, how does acupuncture work, has acupuncture been clinically proven, are Chinese herbs save to take, and can other medical procedures be continued. All of these questions are answered in Jutta's TCM flyer available at Shakti.

Myofascial tissue is continuous and omnipresent in the body. It interweaves and wraps muscles, and every division of tissue within the muscle. By weight, 40% of a muscle is fascial tissue. Where there is chronic or acute pain, limited or difficult range of motion, ongoing stress and tension, there is almost always myofascial tissue which needs to be released and relaxed. The techniques are derived from Hellerwork, which is a gentler derivative of Rolfing.

This is deep work, with sensation. The immediate result is more freedom of movement.

Rates: 60 minutes $85 ~ 90 minutes $125 (add 6.675% sales tax)
Harmony Series: 3/60 minute sessions $240 ~ 3/90 minute sessions $360

Created in the 1980’s by D. Gary Young, N.D., based on his research with the Lakota Indians, therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped like rain along the spine and then worked into the skin with various light massage techniques. Within moments the oils are absorbed through the skin into the nerves and tissues of the body.

Wonderfully soothing, nurturing, and relaxing, Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in immediate and profound ways with long lasting effects.  Deep relaxation, increased energy, enhanced immunity, detoxification, relief of aches and pains, renewed flexibility, postural alignment, a sense of peacefulness and feelings of well being are just some of Raindrop Techique's extraordinary benefits.

Please shower before your session so the essential oils may stay on as long as possible (ideally overnight).  Wear or bring clothing that is machine washable, as some residual oils may absorb into your clothing after the session.  Plan on drinking 2 or 3 glasses of water after your Raindrop session. The essential oils bring nutrition into your cells and may cause your tissues to release toxins into your blood stream, lymph and skin. The water will facilitate this detoxification process.  Schedule a time for your appointment so you can relax afterwards.

Rates: 60 minutes - $85 (add 6.675% sales tax), 3 Sessions for $240 (a $15 savings)

A melding of Chi Nei Tsang or Taoist/Chinese abdominal massage and Thai soft abdomen massage, these techniques work to help your body heal abdominal issues. There is much confusion about food and health. We have many digestive and emotional issues surrounding and trapped in the soft abdomen, inhibiting correct function. In Thai massage we approach the body not as a machine, but as an organic structure with an energy system and an emotional system that can both change the structure and physiology of the physical organism. The focus of the massage is on detoxifying and assisting the very important digestive process. If we cannot digest effectively we will have no energy, if we cannot de-toxify we will feel irritable and uncomfortable. 

We start with the top layer of the body, the skin, to detoxify it. We work into the facial layer, unblocking adhesions, facial chains and releasing scars. We work on the main muscles of the abdomen to relax them. We work on the digestive system from stomach to rectum, shifting blockages. Finally, we work the sen lines (meridians) of the abdomen (Sea of Qi), as this stimulates the body's natural desire for optimal health.

This is deep work, with sensation. Multiple sessions are recommended.
