Qi (essential life energy) is made up of balanced amounts of Yin and Yang (opposing forces). When Yin and Yang are out of balance (either through a deficit of one and an excess of the other, or some type of blockage in the meridians) illness occurs.
The most common ailments currently being treated using acupuncture are: lower backache, Cervical Spondylosis, Condylitis, Arthritic Conditions, and Headaches of all kinds (including migraine), but many other ailments can also be treated using acupuncture.

Cranio Sacral Therapy:
The breathwork can be particularly helpful for people who are experiencing physical or emotional difficulties. Participants often find that a few Holotropic Breathwork tm sessions can allow them to move through deep issues that “would take years to work through in talk therapy”. When choosing a breathwork practitioner, one should look for someone who has considerable personal experience with non-ordinary states of consciousness as well as expertise in working with others in these realms.
Participants may choose to experience private breathwork sessions in a one-on-one setting or in a group format. I offer workshops once per month with Ingrid Pacey, MD in Vancouver. For detailed information about Holotropic Breathwork tm, visit the Grof Holotropic Breathwork homepage, www.holotropic.com.
