Intent on treating pain and anxiety, as well as the underlying causes behind those symptoms, Gaines Frazier LAC. relies on the centuries-old holistic techniques of traditional Chinese medicine. These modalities help clients by supporting the body's natural healing processes and encouraging healthier lifestyle choices. Depending on their client's needs, practitioners have various approaches at their disposal, though they all share a common goal of helping people manage their health issues.
Acupuncture, for example, uses hair-thin needles to stimulate the nervous system and smooth the flow of energy in the body's pathways. The gentle heat of moxibustion radiates deep beneath the surface of the skin, increasing circulation throughout the area. Shiatsu and tui na massage alleviate the tension that can cause aching within the muscles or the tail you're sure you have even if you've never seen it. When used in tandem, these treatments can help address a variety of conditions, including repetitive stress injuries, anxiety, and sciatica.

1976 was the United States' 200th birthday. It was the year the $2 bill was issued and the VHS was introduced.

Now with more than 40 years of experience, Phil expertly slackens musculature with an ample repertoire of techniques.
Initial assessments of the body's overall health may segue into acupuncture to unblock energy flow or into the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage to ease full-body tension. Whether releasing knots with firm deep-tissue techniques or investigating organ function with nutritional response testing, Phil complements his sessions with relaxation training to ensure wellness at home and pinky-lift training to prevent embarrassment at tea parties.
