Acupuncture


ACUPUNCTURE:

Therapeutic goals:
• Reduce inflammation
• Perfussion (process of body delivering blood to a capillary bed in its biological tissue)
• Reduce pain
• Promote tissue healing
• Resolve muscle spasm

e-stim


E-STIM:

In conjunction with acupuncture, e-stim or electrical stimulation is used. It is microcurrent stimulation that causes increased production of ATP. ATP is adenosine triphosphate molecules that are storage & distribution vehicles for energy in the body. This helps accelerate the healing process. Filiform needles are inserted at the points & attached with conducting wires from an electroacupuncture apparatus.

moxa


MOXA or MOXIBUSTION :

A method where moxa punk (made of dried Artemesia vulgaris or other herbs) is burned on or above the skin and acupuncture points.
Indications:
• Chronic weakened conditions (exhausted Yang)
• Asthma
• Diarrhea
• Arthritis
• Rheumatic pain
• Vomiting or abdominal pain
• Certain gynecological issues

cupping


CUPPING:

A method of treating disease by causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in jars (usually glass cups), by means of heat or suction, then applied to the skin, drawing up the underlying tissues and forming blood stasis.
Indications:
• Common cold
• Cough
• Arthritic pain
• Abdominal pain
• Stomachache
• Indigestion
• Headache
• Hypertension
• Low back pain
• Painful menstruation

Herbology


HERBOLOGY:
‘The history of Chinese medicine began in the Eastern Han dynasty, although of course the Chinese people used medicinal substances for millennia before this time. The earlier texts were found in archeological sites and were probably combined or written by the third century. At that time, many people believed in their ability to observe and understand the natural world, and that health and disease were subject to the principles of a natural order, even though, by our own standards, they were quite superstitious. The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic is the theoretical statement of this cosmology in medicine. The universe is composed of various forces: the complementary opposites of yin and yang and the five phases. The human microcosm represents these forces in miniature. There are rules to the treatment of disease and the promotion of health.’ (Chinese Herbal Medicine – Materia Medica – 3rd Edition, Dan Bensky, Steven Clavey, and Erich Stoger)

Massage

My goal in doing the massage is to be flexible as possible based on the patient’s ability to handle pressure and on their constitution. I call it intuitive massage because I use combinations of style according to what the individual needs.

It’s also worth mentioning that I am not a healer but a practitioner. YOU ARE THE HEALER, YOURSELF. I just channel the chi or energy from the Universe, God, Higher Spirit, Angels, etc… based on what I intuitively believe you require.

We named our business Private WELLNESS Center because we focus on your whole being: MIND, BODY and SPIRIT as all around wellness nourishes good health, long life and happy years as we age!

Tuina:
– a Chinese therapeutic massage that involves grasping, brushing, kneading, plucking, manipulations, stretching, etc. This is one important component of Chinese Traditional Medicine. Relaxing is one goal of this massage but importantly it is used to treat diseases through massage manipulations. It is very effective in curing and preventing diseases for infants, children and adults. With or without clothes, optional.

Shiatsu:
– a Japanese form of massage that uses thumb, fingers, elbows and knees to apply pressure on the 12 meridians. These 12 meridians/channels comprises the Lung, Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Urinary Bladder, Kidney, Pericardium, Triple Burner(San Jiao), Gallbladder and Liver are based from the Chinese Traditional Medicine theory. Relaxing and unblocking these 12 meridians are the goal of this type of massage. With or without clothes, optional.

Acupressure
– based from the root of Traditional Chinese Medicine, this involves meditation with the intention of unblocking the channels and meridians. Blocked channels and meridians can cause discomfort, pain, emotional/mental disturbance and affects the overall function of the body system. ”

Qi Gong

Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing and movement exercises.

The character “Qi” is a concept from traditional Chinese culture that roughly means vital energy, information, breath or spirit. The second character in qigong, “gong,” means cultivation or mastery. Qigong is therefore sometimes translated as “vital energy cultivation” or “mastery of your energy.”

Mind/Body Hypnosis

“Mind as Slayer” & “Mind as Healer”… What does this mean? How about some examples:

“I didn’t feel prepared for the exam at all; I became very anxious. The more I prepared, the harder I studied, the more anxious I became. The day before the exam I developed heart palpitations that wouldn’t quit. I had to give up on completing the exam. Within a couple hours of dropping out, the palpitation miraculously stopped”

This type of effect the mind has on the body is sometimes labeled “Mind as Slayer” and there are many such effects. For example, many people report that when they are mentally down or depressed they are more apt to catch a cold, or have athsma falre-ups etc… It is reasonable to theorize that this happends because depressin makes their imune systems vulnerable.

Not only does your mind have hazardous effects on your health, but somebody else’s mind can kill you if your belief system permits such a thing! It is documented that that’s how voodoo works (Dossey 1991).

Fortunately, there is also the mind/body effects called “Mind as Healer”, which the Private Wellness Center addresses using various mind/body healing modalities which are suggestive of mind over body; they are new to Western Medicine (Pelletier 1992) and are still distrusted by conventional Western medical practitioners.

Magic Hands! Liza is a tiny person and I am a large person. I thought she might not have the physical presence to do deep work on a large person, but I was quite mistaken! I told her as she was working on me, ‘those hands got much bigger!’ This Lady is a natural healer. I was impressed with her work mentally, touched emotionally and quite satisfied physically with the long healing session of bodywork she did for me. I give her my highest recommendation.

Heaven sent! That’s what Liza is! Liza is terrific, amazing, fantastic and more! Don’t let her tiny frame deceive you. She has a gift of knowing what your body needs and uses various techniques to heal. Liza your magic hands are just what I need! Thank you for caring so much about my well being!

Tess P. Santa Cruz, CA

Amazing! Thank you so much, Liza. This is the best massage I have ever had. For reals, I got the Hot Stone Massage Therapy Massage and she was very intuitive with the way she worked. She didn’t strictly use the stones but also incorporated her own massage technique “TwoShotPress” as needed. I definaterly reccomend this hidden gem of a spot. It’s located by Ross and Pet Smart on River Street. You can hear the cars outside the window but it surprisingly didn’t bother me! Thanks again, Liza.

Renee W. Santa Cruz, CA

Liza is WONDERFUL! I am very happy with the massage I received and I will definately be going back. It’s not a “one size fits all” massage, she is very intuitive and will adjust to your specific needs.

Clare O. Aptos, CA

Great Place! I was very relaxed and looking forward to going back again!

Jessica V.

Allow Liza to use her intuition on you. She is quite gifted and an amazing massage.

I had a little trouble finding the place but I was also a little late. The massage was absolutely fantastic. I loved it and I am coming back for sure!

Soothing environment. Would recommend the Hot Stone Aromatherapy Treatment. Liza adjusts and checks in with you regarding pressure needs and her technique. She is sensitive to any medical or health issues. I will definately be going back!
