–  Jessica Rose, MSTCM. L,Ac, Acupressure is a form of massage therapy which includes the stimulation of acupoints (the same points used in acupuncture). By releasing tension along pathways in the body acupressure increases the circulation of blood and energy. This is a deeply relaxing and energizing therapy can be performed with clothing on for those who are more comfortable that way.

Acupuncture Clinic – A community room clinic a few days a week that allows us to treat more people at our location in a traditional Chinese style.


–  Jessica Rose, MSTCM. L,Ac, The goal of acupressure is to restore health and balance to the body’s channels of energy and to regulate opposing forces of yin energy and yang energy. Traditional Chinese Medicine describes acupressure points that lie along channels in your body called meridians. Life force, called ‘qi’ (pronounce ‘chee’) flows through the meridians. Acupressure aims to remove blocks or imbalances that may occur in the meridians, which may be the source of illness or disease.

“Beautiful Inn with many luxuries! The Stanford Inn is located just south of Mendocino over the bridge. The area is quiet with many native plants, indoor pool and hot tub, vegan restaurant, and spa services. Probably the best hotel in the area! Breakfast is included with fresh juice and plant-based choices. My husband and I considered B&Bs in Mendocino but thought the rates were too high for their amenities. This Inn has it all! While the town can be explored in a few hours, it is easy to spend hours at this Inn.”
