Mini Stress Treatments

Where the Mystery is the deepest is the gate of all that is subtle and wonderful.   –Lao Tzu


  • What on Earth is a 'mini stress treatment'? (And what if I have maximum stress??)

    Mini stress treatments are simple, no-needle acupressure treatments that are excellent at helping your nervous system to regulate (meaning if you’re amped up, it can help calm you; and if you’re feeling depressed or have no motivation, it can lift your spirits). These can help no matter what your stress level is. In our culture we like to think that more is better, but in this medicine that’s often not the case. In fact, the most profound treatments are often the simplest.

    We use tiny gold beads and place them at specific points on your ear. They stick on with clear tape and can stay on anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks. Anytime you feel extra stressed, just press on the beads gently to stimulate the points again.
