Koshiishi Moxibustion:

Koshiishi style moxibustion is a traditional Japanese healing technique that involves burning moxa (dried mugwort) on specific points of the body to stimulate circulation and promote healing. This technique has been used for centuries in Japan and is known for its effectiveness in treating various health conditions such as back pain, digestive problems, and menstrual cramps.

During a Koshiishi style moxibustion session, a practitioner will place small cones of moxa on specific points along the body. The moxa is then lit and left to burn for a few minutes, creating a gentle warmth that penetrates deep into the body. This warmth helps to stimulate the flow of blood and qi (energy) in the body, which can help to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and improve overall health.

One of the main benefits of Koshiishi style moxibustion is that it is a non-invasive therapy that can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions. It is also a safe and gentle technique that can be used on people of all ages. In addition, Koshiishi style moxibustion is often used in combination with other traditional therapies such as acupuncture and herbal medicine, which can help to enhance its effectiveness.

LED Light Therapy:

LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment method that employs specific wavelengths of light, typically red and near-infrared, to address both pain management and anti-aging concerns. In pain management, it stimulates the production of endorphins and reduces inflammation, providing relief for conditions like arthritis and muscle soreness. For anti-aging purposes, LED light therapy can boost collagen production, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a more youthful complexion. This therapy is safe, painless, and requires minimal downtime, making it a popular option for individuals seeking natural alternatives to manage pain and enhance their skin’s appearance.

Transformational Cleanses and Lifestyle Counseling:

Our 10-Day and 21-Day Cleanse programs help rid your body’s toxins by targeting the gastrointestinal system, liver, kidneys, and gallbladder. Inflammatory foods like gluten, sugar, and dairy are removed from your diet, while gut-healing whole foods and detox-supporting supplements are incorporated. This allows the liver to filter out heavy metals, chemicals, and unhealthy fats; the gut to expel waste, bacteria, and toxins; the kidneys to flush blood and urinate toxins; and the gallbladder to produce bile for effective waste removal. Though inflammatory triggers are restricted, you’ll enjoy nutrient-dense meals tailored to your needs. The goal is optimizing these key detox pathways over 21 days to help reduce toxin buildup and restore efficient whole-body purification. 

Blood Lab Readings:

In addition to nutritional and lifestyle counseling, Paola offers blood lab readings to help you better understand your body’s unique needs and make informed decisions about your health. With Paola’s guidance, you can be confident that you are taking the necessary steps to achieve and maintain optimal health.


Cupping therapy is an ancient healing practice that involves placing specialized cups on the skin to create suction. The suction gently draws the skin and underlying muscles upward into the cup, increasing blood circulation and promoting healing. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and other conditions. The treatment typically uses glass, bamboo, or silicone cups, which a therapist places and moves around the affected area, usually the back, leaving them in place for up to 15 minutes. Some techniques utilize heat or herbs to enhance the effects. Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures and continues to be used in traditional medicine systems today to address both musculoskeletal and internal issues.
