Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine is an ancient medical system originating thousands of years ago incorporating various healing modalities, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, moxibustion, nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, and energy healing. This is a holistic healthcare that emphasizes prevention and treatment of disease by creating balance between mind, body and spirit. The effectiveness of Oriental medicine relies on maintaining health and preventing disease by seeing the body as a whole and honoring the healing process by balancing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Traditional Oriental Medicine is based on a holistic healing approach of treating the person, instead of a fixing the condition. This activates the organic healing process from within, and in order to create and maintain good health, our energy, Qi, needs to flow. This energy is cultivated in the organs, and in a state of constant motion and change. These organs correspond to the five elements in nature.

 

Element          Organ

Fire                 Heart / Sm. Intestine

Earth              Stomach / Spleen

Metal              Lung / Lg. Intestine

Water              Kidney / Bladder

Wood              Liver / Gallbladder

 

These energies are distributed throughout the body via energy channels, meridians. Disease occurs when there is a disruption of the energy flow, due to an imbalance in life, which needs to be addressed. The goal of Chinese medicine is to live in harmony with nature and the world and to strive for balance and moderation in all things. This approach promotes health and wellbeing, and due to its proven success it has been embraced throughout the world.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses ancient, medicinal plant-based herbal formulas to provide additional healing and enhanced well-being. It is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to treat both chronic and acute conditions for reducing inflammation, pain, and stress. In Oriental medicine it is essential to balance the yin and yang in order to maintain a healthy mind, body,and spirit connection.

On a physical level, yin is associated with body fluids, while yang is related to the energy level of the body. Herbal formulas are particularly effective in creating more yin to nourish and ground the yang energy, as well as calming the spirit, insomnia, digestion issues, and boosting the immune system.

Aromatherapy is used for medicinal purposes as well, such as uplifting the spirit, helping with focus and balance, and various other issues.

Best facial spot in San Diego! Jamie is incredibly skilled, and a generous and warm spirit. I have come back here repeatedly even after moving to the east coast. Her products are organic, smell amazing, she takes the time to explain the state of my skin and customize the facial according to my health and skin state. Normally I dread extraction but Jamie made it practically pain free. She also offers a great massage as part of the facial and was so generous giving me a home made lip balm she made at the end of the service. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a facial here!!!

A girlfriend surprised me with a massage by Jamie for my birthday and it was divine! She puts so much love and attention into your session. She preps the room, heats the table, and discusses the areas of your body that need attention. She cares about her clients!!

I had the absolute BEST facial here. Jamie seriously worked magic on my skin, and she’s truly one of the most knowledgeable, kind, and caring people I’ve met. I can’t wait to come back for more facials and massages!

I got a massage here this week and it was amazing. I told her my neck and shoulders were causing me pain and she was able to stretch my neck out and work out the knots, which felt amazing. I got the hot rock therapy which felt soothing and relaxing. I also got the aromatherapy add-on, which was wonderful and calming. I love this place.

If I could give 100 stars, I would! Jamie and her massage suite is my sanctuary! I can come here completely out of power and leave refreshed, happily tired and with the knowledge that I’ve done (or rather Jamie did to my body through her massage) something that my body will thank me for. It’s also not only the massage or facial but also Jamie herself! I am coming to Jamie now since about 5 years and are not planning to change massage places ever! Highly recommend you try it yourself!
