Acupuncture literally means 'needle piercing’, the practice of inserting very fine needles
into the skin to stimulate specific anatomic points in the body (called acupoints) for
therapeutic purposes. Along with the usual method of puncturing the skin with the fine
needles, the practitioners also use heat, pressure, friction, suction, or impulses of
electromagnetic energy to stimulate the points. The acupoints are stimulated to balance
the movement of energy - Qi - in the body to restore health.

Biofield Tuning (also known as "sound balancing") is a sound therapy method that works
with the power of sound and the human biofield to help alleviate conditions such as pain,
anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, emotional overwhelm, digestive issues, adrenal fatigue and more.
Biofield Tuning is based on the premise that the human biofield - the energy field that
surrounds and permeates our bodies - is inextricably connected with our conscious and
subconscious mind, including all of our memories. All physical, mental and emotional
disorders can be perceived as "dissonance" in our energy fields. Biofield Tuning is able
to diminish and resolve this dissonance and in doing so, alleviate and even eradicate the
corresponding physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms.
