Nutritional and Botanical Medicine

Eating is more than just food for fuel. Whether with friends or alone, dining is what we do. Yet, many suffer the consequences and while it is easy to say, it is much harder to put into practice proper eating habits. Using Chinese Dietary Theory and years of Botanical Medicine research, Nieve guides you towards healthy and happy eating, in and out.


Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Far Infrared Heat Therapy
A special band of far infrared electromagnetic energy penetrates deep into the human body. The cells have a higher absorption efficiency for far infrared energy than near infrared, thereby improving circulation and speeding healing.

Tui Na

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases.

Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing, developed by Dr. Fritz Frederick Smith integrates Western and Eastern anatomy and physiology to the systems of energy and structure within the human body. Through energetic and structural balancing, this therapy creates a stronger, clearer system that deepens relaxation and calms the nervous system. 


Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

"I thank Nieve for all that she has given me. There is hope. I don’t know what I would have done without acupuncture. The pain from the arthritis is tolerable. To be able to sleep without Ambien is a plus. For me it’s a miracle." ~ A.D.K.
