Rylen will guide each client to reach their highest potential and embrace a lifestyle that is congruent with their beliefs.
WHAT IS AMMA BODYWORK THERAPY? Amma is the oldest Chinese word to describe massage. Amma is a specialized form of bodywork therapy that combines deep, therapeutic pressure and acu-point stimulation. The treatment is based on Chinese medical principles for accessing and treating imbalances in the energy system. Amma Bodywork Therapy, like acupuncture, focuses on the balance and movement of Qi (energy) within the body. Whereas the acupuncturist inserts needles into the energy pathways to stimulate and move the energy, the Amma practitioner relies primarily on the sensitivity and strength of the hands to manipulate the client’s life Qi.
WHAT IS WHOLISTIC NUTRITION? Wholistic Nutrition recognizes that food is more than it’s nutritional components. It recognizes food as deeply sustaining and nourishing our lifeforce. Rylen looks at the traditional energetics of foods as well as current nutritional wisdom and combines them to make sensible doable individual recommendations for each client.
WHAT ABOUT THE HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS? Ultimate health in today’s world, may include the judicious use of herbs and supplements. Rylen is extensively trained and nationally certified in the healthy use of herbs and supplements. Herbs/supplements may be used to maintain health, to mitigate negative effects of pharmaceutical drugs, or to treat specific conditions directly.

People always ask me how long they should anticipate receiving acupuncture for their fertility issues. In school we learned that a minimum of three months treatment should be conducted for male and female reproductive issues. Over the last six years, I have added to the dimension of this knowledge and can explain a little bit more why a minimum of three months is important.
1.For females, we need the time to analyze your menstrual cycle, work on improvements and see change. You should start seeing small improvements after the first menstrual cycle and continue to see changes over the course of at least three months. These changes in your cycle will reflect the balancing of hormones on your body and the progress you are making.
2. An egg is “chosen” 90 days before it is actually released from the follicle during ovulation. Therefore, the health of our egg stems from the state of our body retroactively by approximately 90 days. If you can take herbs, receive acupuncture, reduce stress and improve your diet for a minimum of three months, you could potentially increase your chances of a good quality ovulation.
3. The same goes for men. When I see men and give them herbs, I always give them a three month supply since sperm takes approximately 60 days to regenerate and then about 10-14 days to travel through the tubes to eventually be released during ejaculation.
Most of my patients receive treatments once a week for about 6 weeks and then biweekly thereafter. By the second session we usually have a good treatment plan set up which includes acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, life-style changes, and relaxation exercises. I will also refer patients to other practitioners for services like psychotherapy, massage, hypo-fertility, etc. If you have more questions about this, please feel free to comment below!
