Our Wellness Services
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are both finely-tuned medical practices used as the preferred method of primary care by many around the globe. They have a specialized department in many hospitals worldwide, and are safe to say, the primary method of every 4 billion plus patient’s care at every hospital in China.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin, single-use, sterile needles at precise points around the body, that are stimulated at precise rates, in precise directions, at precise depths to either tonify or sedate the energy flow in the pathways aka channels that it is traveling through at you guessed it, rather precise times throughout the day! It’s on point!
TCM encompasses Acupuncture and also includes other treatment methods, such as the ability to prescribe and be able to modify as needed, nearly 100 herbal remedies involving several hundreds of medicinal herbs in precise dosage, to ease what ails you. Other TCM tools include Gua Sha (scraping), Cupping (using glass), and Moxibustion.
Given your personal (and very private) diagnosis, by way of a licensed LAc (ie, the most reliable TCM practitioner in the state of California), will ensure that you are getting a systematic, strategic and well thought through analysis of your symptoms. Things you may have never considered significant, are intricate ‘tells’ to the trained LAc’s eye.
Is a branch of philosophy dealing with beauty. The largest organ of the body is skin. The skin tells us what is happening on the inside of our bodies. Skin is often damaged due to sun and wind exposure, chemical exposure and poor diet. Our skin must have the proper nutrient balance to reproduce healthy cells and is commonly neglected from therapies like exfoliation. We lose the elasticity and collagen in our skin as we get older. Having bi-weekly or monthly skin treatments will bring back the youthful and healthy skin tone.
One on one and group exercise/athletic training is essential to promote skeletal muscles strength, flexibility and mobility. We begin by coaching the basic techniques while adjusting your program to maximize and attain your goals.
Is the rinsing of the colon with filtered, warm water. This therapy is performed to cleanse the bowel (Colon) and gently rinse away impacted fecal matter, mucous, and to alleviate gas. Removal of the waste allows for better absorption from the food and nutrition you consume. Afterward, most feel lighter, rejuvenated; and with enough proper nutritional shifts and treatments, the colon will repair and reshape, and the muscle tone will be restored, thus providing proper peristalsis, so daily, optimal bowel movements are achieved. The procedure lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour and involves a single use, FDA-approved speculum that is inserted into the rectum, so that filtered water can flow to the colon. Most experience a very relaxing and effective experience, which gives this vital and often neglected organ, what it needs to function optimally. A neglected colon is common in today’s modern society, because we imbibe far too much carbonated, refined and processed foods and too much meat and dairy products. All the waste remaining in the colon causes the toxins to flow into the blood stream, causing auto-intoxication and a host of health problems. Regular bowel maintenance is essential to a human body and overall health. Indeed, its practice can be traced 5,000 years back to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks.

Customized programs focused on optimal health require regular habits, which require commitment and shifting into a proactive practice. Plant based nutrition, clean hydration and seasonal detoxification, all contribute to a person’s level of wellness. Wellness requires regular attention and constant daily practices, which we focus on habits that heal and protect the body from disease. Sleep patterns, gut health and a person’s initial health status are all assessed to meet that person where they are at, so that strategies are implemented and slow and sustainable results are achieved. We DO NOT participate in fad diets, but rather the “no chemicals approach” to natural weight loss, that lasts a lifetime. We believe you must have proper diagnostics to assess health and not just a review of symptoms, but also Micronutrient, Cardiometabolic (including diabetes and omegas), Thyroid / Adrenal, Male & Female Hormone, CBC and CMP and finally Genetic testing like MTHFR and Telomeres are all considered regular diagnostics to look for deficiencies and risk assessment. Our team enjoys collaboration with your regular attending physician(s) and naturopath(s). Laboratories are covered by insurance and a co-pay is expected for the labs. We perform all blood draws at MPL Group’s GetWellness Center by a very talented, trained and licensed phlebotomist.

Using a top of the line, medical-grade FDA cleared camera to obtain digital thermographic images, Sierra Thermography provides women with another tool for breast cancer risk assessment. Thermography is able to detect and monitor small changes or abnormalities in the breast by analyzing temperature distribution. In cases of cancer, there is often an increase in blood flow in order to supply needed nutrients to the cancer cells. This increase in blood flow (angioneogenesis) will also create an increase in heat which is picked up by the highly sensitive camera. These areas can then be monitored by thermography and medical diagnostic testing. Thermography is a non-invasive, no-contact, no radiation, pain-free procedure for women of all ages.
