Our treatments provide relief for a variety of issues including, but not limit to: chronic pain, auto-immune disorders, digestive disorders, nutrition counseling, people in transitions, mindful parenting, sleep disorders and stress reduction.

Tongbu Wellness Center® was born through my own healing journey, that required synchronicity between several healing modalities. The name Tongbu, which means synchronicity or walk with me, was inspired from my experience. At Tongbu Wellness Center®, our clients get the best of many healing paths under one roof. As an acupuncturist, I specialize in chronic illness, which includes but is not limited to; autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, digestive disorders, TMJ pain (jaw pain), early onset of stroke, and cancer support. My studies in Tianjin and Beijing, China, enhanced my knowledge and enriched my passion for Chinese medicine and all that it has to offer.

I deeply understand how the disease to please can create toxic behavior patterns that affect the way you relate to others and the world around you. For most of my life I lived that way. Being a clairvoyant medium and Integral coach has helped me in my own life to open up and explore self. I am dedicated to helping my clients discover themselves, new possibilities, and opportunities to align their lives from the inside out . I look at sense of self, social life, culture, body image, patterns, habits, energy level, physical environment, intentions, verbal and non-verbal cues, and connections with others.

Chuck Drefs, Medium I use my mediumship to tap into what's going on in a person's life on a spiritual level. This allows me to be able see the things that may need healing and further help the process along. I am able to tap into the root of what is causing pain or anguish, whether it is happening currently, or whether it is residual from a loved one passing, or traumatic experience.
