Moxibustion improves blood circulation and boosts immunity by applying heat to the body. It has a strong image of warming the body but has various effects besides “warming.” 

Heat stimulation on the skin affects the muscles, blood vessels, and lymph nodes under the skin; they get stimulated and release adrenal cortical hormones to activate white blood cells and suppress inflammation and pain. It activates cells and has an immune effect.​


Bach Flower Remedy (Homeopathy) session is recommended with counseling or as follow-ups for people who have high-stress, mental and/or emotional conditions (including  anxiety, PTSD, trauma, stress of work-related, and relationship, etc.) to ease mental and emotional issues. $150 per session with about 2 weeks personal Bach Flower Remedy supply.

I had the great good fortune to be introduced to Sanae via a friend who was teaching me macrobiotic cooking immediately after the shock cancer diagnosis I received last year, that had me, in the space of an afternoon, facing (stage4) lung cancer. Sanae became my macrobiotic counselor. The advice, guidance, and encouragement she gave me in those first few weeks ( and since!), discussing the food diaries I was to make and any reactions or concerns I had, were invaluable. Of central importance to me since then have been my regular visits for shiatsu massage and Reiki sessions, a really wonderful combination that I find deeply healing and calming. It’s an extraordinary 2 hours where we start by discussing any issues or queries, in an atmosphere with diffused essential oils (or Bach flower remedies) attuned to my condition, then, along with moxibustion, the deep relaxation of the two treatments… Sanae has wonderful intuitive hands…followed by a remedy tea together.

Her personal experience of cancer and the knowledge and wisdom she has acquired over the years, along with her great warmth and strong bright spirit, make Sanae an invaluable part of the healing path I’m on.
She is very special.

“Sanae has been so generous with her knowledge of Macrobiotics and with her time. Her recommendations helped me get through the final stage of stopping the steroids. I needed someone that was gentle and nurturing and patient with me and Sanae was.”
– Becky Carr, Anchorage, Alaska

Over the year and a half that I have studied with Sanae, she always helps me find loving kindness, patience, and compassion for myself especially when I sometimes fall off track or struggle with the transitions into this new lifestyle. She understands the time elements of trying to prepare macrobiotic meals while working full time and having other responsibilities. We laugh at her quote, “macrobiotic is not difficult, just inconvenient.”
