I use sterile, single-use needles. Most of us are familiar with hypodermic needles, which are hollow and inject fluid into our bodies. Acupuncture needles are not hollow, there is no liquid, and the width is even smaller than a sewing needle. More information about needle size can be found at The Acuzone in their article, "Needle Size in Acupuncture." Also, please check out this needle size chart to see how small acupuncture needles really are.


Nutrition is highly important in your body's ability to heal. There are so many healing foods, herbs, and supplements that will help you on your healing journey. Most of us are experiencing symptoms that are caused by viruses. Fatigue, aches and pains, brain fog, insomnia, anxiety and more are all included as neurological symptoms based on viruses and toxins causing inflammation in the body.

Rife Frequencies

Everything living emits a frequency. Whether this is a human, a plant, an animal, or even a stone, we are all living vibrations of light and sound. In the early 20th century, a scientist named Royal Rife estimated that everything has a frequency to which it can be vulnerable. This led Rife to experiment at what frequency each known pathogen could be destroyed. He was then able to utilize these specific frequencies to kill pathogens without causing harm to the human body. 

Areas of Dis-ease

I specialize in treating a variety of symptoms because most symptoms have a similar root cause. This allows the treatment to address a multitude of symptoms and diseases. Combining Acupuncture, Nutrition, and Rife Frequencies creates a Trinity of Healing that is powerful and can help you heal.

Heather is not only intuitive and kind, she’s funny and real! The session was good right from the beginning, from the beautiful space and chance to drop in and go over my paperwork, to the way she special ordered needles for my NEEDs 😜. It felt wonderful to relax and let myself be cared for. I felt safe and warm, and I really felt like she had a plan for my particular wellness journey. I respect Heather and her body of wisdom, and would trust her to come up with a plan to help me be my healthiest and best self. Heather is a joy to be around, and when coupled with her obvious care for her clients, she’s a fantastic choice for an acupuncturist.
