Probiotics and skin health..

The latest research suggests that taking a pure probiotic or eating probiotic rich foods, may reduce inflammation in the skin, i.e. acne, dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. The benefits of probiotics, is that they introduce healthy bacteria to the gut and create a barrier to reduce inflammation, which can trigger certain skin conditions.

A key component of Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.

What are the benefits of Reiki or Energy work?

First and foremost allow me to explain what Reiki is; Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by  specific hand placement on what are called the 7 Chakras, or energy governing bodies,and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
