Who can benefit from treatments?
In our modern society we are faced with more stress than in the past. In our modern society the “fight-or-flight” response (a stress response) is often activated on a regular basis, while it is designed to save a person when faced a threat. This overreaction causes many issues and can manifest itself with different symptoms.
Energy can be diverted away, for example, from the digestive system which, in the long run, can cause various stomach issues (for example). Stress and anxiety can cause emotional response as well. And the overall immune system and self healing power can be effected.*
What can be addressed with treatments?
Treatments can be suitable for those who would like to balance out the energy flow by releasing the causes of discomfort or “disease” – physical, emotional, and spiritual. The source of stress impairing the perfect functioning of the meridians is irrelevant; it could be emotional or physical. It only matters that our circuits of energy are re-aligned.
Treatments take in consideration your constitution and what is most needed , Yoga exercises can be recommended for self-practise to support your healing process.

“Tao: The Watercourse Way” by Alan Watts
“Thirty spokes unite at the wheel’s hub;
It is the center hole that makes it useful.
Shape clay into a vessel;
it is the space within that makes it useful.
Cut out doors and windows for a room;
it is the holes which make it useful.
Therefore profit come from what is there;
Usefulness from what is not there.”
Lao Tzu – Tao Te Ching – Chapter 11
