My name is "Ocean" Christy Taylor, and I have been practicing in the healing arts for my entire professional life.
I have been blessed to have had many great teachers along the way. I studied Reiki and Energy Healing at a young age which helped me recover from two herniated discs in my low back.
I then trained in Reflexology and Tui na (Chinese massage) in my late teens and worked at a Chinese Doctors office offering these services. I also trained in many yoga teacher trainings all over the world and taught yoga in Australia and the Nshore of Kauai and Oahu for several years. I completed an intensive two year Advanced Remedial Massage program and worked as a massage therapist for 20 years in Canada, Australia and Hawaii.
I then went on to receive a Masters Degree in Acupuncture in Honolulu in 2017. I studied under the late Master Chang Yi Hsiang who was a 64th generation Taoist lineage holder of a 2000 year old tradition inherited from the Han dynasty. I now focus on offering Acupuncture, Acupressure, Cupping and Near Infrared Light therapy sessions.
Acupuncture is part of a medical system that has been successfully treating people for thousands of years. It promotes circulation, reduces inflammation to eliminate pain, improves metabolism and restores proper functioning of all body systems. One of the basic theories of Chinese Medicine is that everything is connected, so the whole body is considered in treatment.
Very delicate needles are placed in various parts of the body to help naturally correct any imbalance that might be causing negative changes. Points are chosen based on a sophisticated system of diagnosis. It is both safe and effective, and many people describe it as being extremely relaxing. I also apply "Estim" or electrical stimulation to the needles if needed. Which works very effectively at treating chronic or severe pain.
Cupping is a form of therapy in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction and dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern and European cultures. Much like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, Cupping Therapy uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. This can be a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation. Once suctioned, the cups are generally left in place for about ten minutes while the patient relaxes. I often will slide the cups around with organic oils in order to break up stuck muscles tissues.
~near infrared Light Therapy~
Included in all sessions Medical Grade Near Infrared Light Therapy
First developed by Nasa for Astronauts the health and beauty industry got a hold of the technology and developed it into easy to use devices. It has been shown to effectively treat a wide variety of skin and musculoskeletal
conditions. Celluma light therapy treats arthritic pain, muscle and joint pain, wrinkles and acne. It is proven to decrease inflammation and increase micro-circulation. It also has a very relaxing effect and works very well in conjunction with acupuncture treatments. I will put the device on the area that needs it the most when the needles are in and it adds great relaxation, healing and peace to the session.
