• The body is the temple of life.
  • Energy is the force of life.
  • Spirit is the governor of life.
  • If body, energy or spirit goes off balance, all of them are damaged.
  • The Three Treasures: body, energy and spirit.
  • When the spirit takes command, the body naturally follows and this arrangement benefits all Three Treasures.
  • When the body leads the way, the spirit goes along, and this harms all Three Treasures.
  • Life essence is a form of potential energy, like a battery fluid, from which the body draws energy as required.
  • Life essence provides strength, vitality and immunity and it is most easily depleted through chronic stress, malnutrition and illness.
  • Spirit refers to the mind and all of its facets and functions.
  • Spirit is immaterial, luminous and resides in the heart.
  • Spirit is the mind of Life Force, the immortal soul, the original light of consciousness.
  • Every human being posses the mind of Life Force in his or her heart, but very few are aware of it.
  • Health and longevity are sustained not by doctors and drugs but by carefully guarding the Three Treasures of life, and the onset of any disease is a clear indication of one's own failure to maintain a strong defense system.

First Appointment

While Beth will explain as much as she can about energetic treatments when she is working with you, you will receive greater benefit from your first appointment if you take time to read the pages on this web site about the energy system, acupuncture, and the allergy protocols prior to your first appointment. One of Beths primary objectives is education, so feel free to ask questions.


  • The fee for a New Patient Evaluation & Treatment is $185.
  • Any necessary product supplementation is an additional charge.


  • On your first appointment, Beth will spend 1.5 to 2 hours beginning with a detailed evaluation and ending with your first treatment.

Helpful tips:

  • Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes for easy access to acupuncture points on the arms and legs. Dressing gowns and drapes are available if needed.
  • Bring ALL medication and/or supplements you are currently taking.

Return Visit


  • The fee for a Return Visit is $85.
  • Any necessary product supplementation is an additional charge.
  • Please note, Beth will often use electrical stimulation, heat, topical herbs, and magnets in addition to acupuncture and does not charge additional fees for these extra treatment services.


  • For Return Visits, please allow 45 minutes to 1 hour in your schedule.


The course of treatment will vary depending on the patients physical condition and diagnosis. Beth can better determine a more accurate treatment plan after the initial evaluation and she may adjust it as the patient makes progress.

The use of acupuncture needles is the most common technique for stimulating the energetic points; however, Beth also utilizes laser, ultra-sound, infra-red light, and magnets as alternative methods that are equally effective. If needles are used, Beth uses only pre-sterilized and disposable acupuncture needles. Beth only buys the highest quality needle available in the two smallest sizes to insure patient comfort.

Herbal formulas, enzymes, supplements, homeopathics, homochords, and dietary or lifestyle modifications may also be recommended.


Since acupuncture and allergy elimination will strengthen the immune system and promote the bodys natural healing ability, most conditions can be corrected or improved. As a result, patients experience a greater sense of health and wellness in body, mind and spirit.
