Welcome to Rapha-El Alternative Therapies, LLC

About Us

Caring For Your Health

We understand that you are not living your best life possible unless your mind and body are completely healthy. That's why we take a holistic approach to preventing and reversing disease, reducing pain from muscles and joints, increasing the healing process of the cells of the body, decreasing stress and anxiety, reducing the signs of aging, and aiding in the elimination of fat from hard-to-target areas.

Natural Healing

Our goal is to provide alternative health options using the fundamental healing principles of spirit-mind-body science.  Our results prove the best way to heal the body is naturally.  Using combinations of ancient techniques (acupuncture needles, gua sha, cupping, massage. etc.) and modern techniques (microcurrent, infrared, PEMF, laser, ultrasound, color, etc.) can bring faster and longer lasting results, when you are committed to the process.  Customized packages are created during your initial intake. 

Our Promise to You

We care about your well-being and will provide you with guidance, knowledge, and tools needed to be healthy.  When you take an internal, as well as, an external approach to feeling and looking good, we know that you will experience greater well-being in all areas of your life. We are here to help you achieve optimal wellness.  Awareness is key. Those who look and feel confident, will gain the confidence of others.

Our Services

Acupuncture, Colorpuncture and Advanced Therapies

The modalities we use work with the body's vital energy system, called Qi, in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  

Acupuncture uses fine needles inserted at specific points to activate Qi and circulate that energy throughout Meridian pathways in the body to promote healing.  

Esogetic Colorpuncture adds colored light, brainwave frequencies, and other therapies to address non-physical origins of illness, as well as address the physical symptoms.  

Cold Laser Acupuncture and PEMF (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field) therapies can be used in place of (or in conjunction with) needles, as both are  painless and can regenerate tissue and bring increased oxygen to the cells to stimulate optimal performance, and energize the blood.  

Microcurrent therapy mimics the body's electrical impulses vital to our cells, and stimulates the production of ATP,  a molecule that stores and distributes energy for virtually all cell activities, including nerve transmission, muscle contraction, protein synthesis, and enhancement of cell membrane permeability. 

Cupping is an ancient technique, modernized, in which small cups are placed on the skin to create a suction. It will increase blood flow and circulation to stagnant areas by raising the skin and causing blood vessels to expand.  They are usually placed on the back, and other large muscles groups. They have recently been used for facial rejuvenation, as well.

All healing begins in the cells.  Quantum Healing works with the past, present, and future.  DNA stores information from the past, passes through the present, and can travel to future generations.  The past, present, and future are the NOW.

BeautifyNaturally 1st!

There is no vanity in wanting to look your best.  We all want to look pleasing to ourselves, and others. Billions of dollars are spent every year on surgical cosmetic procedures, liposuction and injections of possible harmful substances, all to give the appearance of youth, but does nothing to heal the body.  Right combinations can produce excellent looking results. It is not a wrong thing to do, and is understandable in certain circumstances.  But, too much nipping and tucking can make skin look unnatural and shiny, leaves scars and needs down time to heal. We like to offer a more natural approach to reducing the harshness of aging, and sculpting the body.  

The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture technique is coupled with additional therapies, customized to meet your needs.  There is little to no down time for healing.  The acupuncture and other modalities used not only create a more youthful look for your face and neck that can last 3-5 years, depending on lifestyles, but provides body acupuncture to promote balance, as well.  

Ultrasonic Cavitation sessions implode fat cells from those hard to target areas of the body, such as, abdomen, inner thighs, 'love handles', buttocks, and arms. This implosion of fat cells (not shrinking them) transforms them into a liquid form the body can use for energy, or eliminate as waste products.  Radio Frequency and Vacuum Massage are added as an extra benefit to tighten the skin, and promote circulation.  

FREE 30 minute face-to-face consultations are available, by appointment, to see if this is right for you.
