What is the approach and how can it help me?
Many arthritis patients are concerned about comfort and experiencing pain.
The approach is to establish what is a comfortable level of pressure right from the start of a session.
By combining bodywork approaches, such as Acupressure, Gua Sha and Radix, an emotional fitness approach, Acu-Responsive Healing improves energy, blood flow and cell rejuvination.
We achieve this by engaging the muscles, skin and nervous system to stimulate
a soothing and healing response.
Some Questions and Answers

What are the Benifits?
