Since 1992, we have diligently studied, practiced and taught the various methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We have distilled the essence of these endeavors into that which we offer today.


Our Mission

Our mission is to create deep healing and transformation through tailored treatment programs which honor the individuality and reality of each of our patients. We offer services ranging from the immediate care of acute distress to the long term remodelling of chronic patterns. Our work is designed to allow you to find and achieve your inner peace.

Outwardly go along with the flow, while inwardly keeping your true nature. Then your eyes and ears will not be dazzled, your thoughts will not be confused, while the spirit that dwells within you will expand greatly to roam in the realm of absolute purity.
