Licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist Ariana Geoffrey Stahlka strives to restore the body's balance and harmony with alternative-medicine techniques. Stahlka earned a MS in Oriental medicine and a BS in nutrition at Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, one of the first colleges of acupuncture and Oriental medicine in the United States. She works along the body's energy meridians as outlined in traditional Chinese medicine, using acupuncture to alleviate chronic pain, fatigue, depression, and even aesthetic concerns. She navigates those same meridians during Krashada acupressure-therapy sessions, which uses pressure from hands to help enhance energy flow and release blockages that may cause physical pain, mental discomfort, or poor decision-making during Final Jeopardy!
Along with classic massage techniques, Stahlka utilizes craniosacral and multibody-release therapies to enhance motor function. Her background in nutrition allows her to address physical ailments with the complex art of Chinese herbology.
