Empowering Self Care through Integrative HealthcareKarin C. Uphoff
The purpose of the services I offer is to inspire people to connect deeply with their own body and healing process – to care for your body is to care for your own piece of earth and create a culture of reverence.

Please see class schedule for current offerings. A workshop or class can consist of a motivated group of friends who want to learn more about various aspects of herbal healing, nutrition, salve-making, first-aid remedy kit making etc. Call to design your own and have Karin come and teach!
Herbal and Nutritional Consultation (1-2 hours)
As part of your consultation, a complete intake on your past and present health will helps us understand the broader picture of what is happening. Diagnostic tools such as iridology, plus pulse and tongue analysis are used to understand your constitution. A plan of action addressing your health issue may include dietary and lifestyle changes, herbal tea, tincture or capsules, appropriate supplements and cleansing techniques. Follow-up sessions are one hour. Appointments are held in person. Follow-up sessions are also available by phone.
Flower Remedy Consultations (up to 1 hour)
Using kinesiology, an appropriate flower combination is made for your current energetic and emotional needs. Appointments can be in person or by phone.
Bodywork and Plant Spirit Medicine Sessions (1 1/2 hours)
A blend of bodywork that includes Swedish and Esalen massage techniques, along with acupressure, foot and hand reflexology, aromatherapy, Trager work, lymphatic drainage massage and energy balancing – depending upon the needs of your body. Plant Spirit Medicine may be incorporated into bodywork or held separately, and includes chakra balancing, shamanic journey, dreamwork and other techniques as appropriate to the situation.
Acutonics is a non-invasive healing technique that uses tuning forks calibrated to the sounds of planetary bodies, on specific acupuncture points of your body. Our cells transmit these vibrations to open up blocked energies and return to a sense of deep relaxation.
For vinyassa-style yoga classes, please see class schedule. Private lessons are by appointment only.
