Treatments

TREAT

The first level of treatment, we just want to feel better. I am in pain, reduce that pain. I am sick of having this recurring infection, make it go away. The mode is relieve the symptom, reduce the pain. This is treatment on the physical level.

Acupuncture

Knotted root specializes in orthopedic acupuncture, for conditions of the muscles, sinews, and joints, and toning down heightened response.

Herbs

Chinese herbs can treat almost anything but we specialize in rebuilding people’s constitutional strength and calming down CNS response.

Tui na

Improves joint play, range of motion, opens up muscular constriction, promotes blood flow, and the body’s ability to heal itself.

Shiatsu

Assisting the meridians to process emotion and release any build-up thereof that can present as physical symptoms.

Qi gong

to prevent or manage pain, improve motor function, recover from surgery, or approach elderhood with confidence.

Cupping

Opens up and creates space between the skin, fascia, and muscle layers which in turn releases pressure on the joints.

Gua sha

Also called “scraping”, gua sha is a technique used to release fascia and remove obstruction in the channels of the body.

Magnetic/ionic therapy

Magnets are used instead of needles for children, those who have a phobia, or just prefer treatment without.

Transform

 The second level of treatment. The theory is that physical suffering is a way to recall one to oneself. Through the transform level of treatment, we create structures to engage with the inner terrain of the physical body and allow it to release what it has been holding for us: grief, trauma, belief systems etc. The process of release causes physical symptoms to resolve, subside, or go into remission.

Life centered therapy

Deep deprogramming through reliving memory, releasing beliefs, and letting go of that which no longer serves.

Somatic work

An essential step for regaining a sense of
safety in the body

Sound healing

Allows the body to release sensations or blockages in the meridians through sound and to support vulnerable places in the body with sound.

Stone medicine

In the Chinese Alchemical tradition, which assigns medical applications to different stones, not unlike Chinese herbalism.

Spirit of the meridians

Treatment according to the development of your soul. Helps to release you from the holding pattern and open up the next step of your spiritual evolution.
