"Personal and practical experience reinforce my strong belief in (w) holistic therapies. Not only do they help in times of need, they contribute in maintaining a greater sense of over all well-being. There is tremendous power that lies within each of us, and I believe in the individuals innate ability to self heal, and self govern when given the proper information. In accordance, one's awareness increases, consciousness shifts, change occurs and the body heals. One may become more vibrant and at peace."  -Christine Ellis, Acupuncture Physician


"I have been a patient of Christine's for the last 7 years. I have various chronic health issues  that
modern medicine is unable to provide treatment and relief. The combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and massage bodywork has made a significant difference in my health and wellbeing.

Christine is very proficient in multiple wholistic approaches to bring harmony, balance, and restoration 
to the body and mind. Her knowledge and skills are excellent, and the application of her skills are customized to the patient and the presenting health issues of that moment."
