What’s New

Join Us for a Celebration of the Summer Solstice!

Sunday, June 25th, 3 – 5pm
$15 suggested donation to benefit Shepard’s Table

Spring has finally given way to the fullness of Summer! As we enjoy the expansion of daylight and the warmth of the sun, what is expanding and warming in you? Are you allowing yourself to experience joy? Are your friendships deepening or do you feel disconnected from others? When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?

Come play with us as we celebrate the longest day of the year. We will explore and experience the gifts of the Fire Element and Summer season and offer practical tips for how you can cultivate those gifts in yourself — even if your own inner spark needs re-igniting!

Register at Crossings by phone (301-565-4924) or email (frontdesk@crossingshealing.com). 


Connect to Your Power

Saturday, June 24th, 11 – 5 p.m.
$165 per person / Light snacks will be provided / Space is limited

In this group workshop we will re-connect to our innate self-healing power. We will grow in clarity and grounding, release blocks and re-inspire our journeys through some potent energy work.
Those who have participated in this workshop described feeling more fully alive, centered, and connected to a deep sense of their inner knowing. This will be a safe environment for anyone desiring support, wanting to dial down the mental chatter, feel freer, and ready to see the world with fresh eyes.

With Dr. Marie Rodriguez, Liz Piren and Lea Christy Sloan. For more information, email admin@drmarierodriguez.com.

Original Research Published

Crossings co-owner, Jane Grissmer, was recently published in The American Acupuncturist, a quarterly publication by the American Association of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AAAOM).   Her paper, entitled “The Geometry of Emotion: Healing Emotions through the Lens of Chinese Medicine”, discusses emotions and their transformation through the lens and geometry of qi, yin/yang (life force and polarities), and virtue.



Crossings’ Director Acupuncturist Alaine Duncan and Acupressure Therapist Cathy Miller just had a research paper published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.  The paper describes a year-long Restore & Renewâ Wellness Clinic offered at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for hospital caregivers. We offered ear acupuncture, clinical acupressure and Zero Balancingâ.  Our hope was that by helping these noble caregivers find more relaxed and calm alertness, we could undo, soften, and release the trauma of war – in them and for everyone they touched. The number we are proudest of is a striking finding on the possible impact we had on patient care. Among those who visited the wellness clinic nine or more times, 75% strongly agreed that they experienced more compassion with patients as a result of clinic participation. When health care providers of war-wounded patients are given opportunities to experience more balance and wellness, this evaluation suggests that they may have the potential to “spread” their wellness to their co-workers and their patients.  We couldn’t have asked for more.  Read it here:
