Feather and Bone Acupuncture Herbs Wellness

Julia Urcis LAc.
Contact Info:530-559-5928
Pricing: $120 initial, $80 follow up

I offer a safe space for people to experience a healing session within the body when acupuncture needles are combined with cultivated healing energy. I tune into the body by feeling the radial pulse of each arm, from which I get a sense of the internal workings of the body. I utilize the ancient practices of the forerunners of Asian meridian medicine, as well as my intuitive sense. I usually spend some time manually palpating the channels on the feet, arms and neck before applying needles, supporting the body for deep relaxation and subsequent restoration. Sometimes I will use other therapies like moxabustion, cupping or gua sha, depending on the nature of the issue. Usually we will come up with a few supportive habits or dietary changes to support healing between sessions.

Enneagram of Personality and Vedic Astrology Services

Indra Rinzler offers Sacred Geometry Maps

The goal of Indra’s Life Reading is to offer insight that enables the client to progress in their conscious awakening. Using both Vedic astrology and the Enneagram of Personality we can transcend beyond personal story and see through our conditioning. Then we begin to understand and live-in true nature. We want to live beyond the borders we make for ourselves. We want to let go of attitudes that don’t serve us and that aren’t really true anyway. The reading will provide tools for living in freedom from the challenges of life. When we see our life as a whole, we feel the connection to all existence. The readings provide answers to the deepest of questions.

Vedic Astrology is based on ancient observable science. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the alignment of planets at our birth can help us to overcome the challenges we face.

 The Enneagram of Personality shows us which one of the 9 personality stories we have at our core, stories that help us to navigate our life and can reveal our triggers. This is a powerful and unique modality that is mostly taught in the West.

The Wheel of Totality helps us to gain awareness on blind spots and areas of ignorance. This reading shares which awareness we lack.

Indra Rinzler focuses on helping people to wake to who they really are–to live beyond one’s stories and suffering. He uses Vedic Astrology and the Enneagram of Personality as maps to guide our way on the Path. Indra has been a student and sharer of astrology and on the spiritual path for 50 years. In 1999 he was introduced to the Enneagram of Personality and shares it with clients and in workshops both here and overseas in India and Thailand.

By Appointment: 213-479-4123 /

Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and hands on treatment based on the inter-relationship between the structures of the body and the way in which the body functions. Through palpation, the aim of treatment is to integrate anatomy and physiology in order for the body to function in a cohesive manner. Working with the principle that the body is self-healing and self-regulating, the osteopaths’ job is to work with the body in the least intrusive way to stimulate these mechanisms. Treatment modalities will vary according to the clients’ needs but may include joint mobilizations, soft tissue techniques, visceral manipulation, muscle energy techniques, neural manipulation, and lymphatic drainage.

Having always a fascination with the human body and its potential, Erin has a background in classical ballet, yoga, and bodywork. She obtained her Masters Degree in Osteopathy and Naturopathy at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine with an in depth course in Classical Osteopathy. Treatment is focused on the patient’s needs and abilities, aiming to improve functionality and promoting long-term health.
