Experience ear acupuncture and sound healing. Points in the ear can be used to treat the whole body and address a huge variety of ailments, anything from anxiety and depression to pain to addiction to diabetes. In addition to the powerful effect the needles have on the brain, sound helps synchronize our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency to which our brainwaves can attune. It is possible to shift our normal “beta” conscious state to “alpha” relaxed state or even “theta” meditative state or “delta” sleep state, where internal healing can occur. Sign up under “Make An Appointment.”
