Helping you bloom again

Our Services

Our Services

At Blooming Orchid Wellness, we provide a comprehensive treatment protocol using a program that we created, the DAP System.  Through our DAP system, we Discover, Administer and Promote based on a trilogy of services that work together for proven results.

DISCOVER: Screening

DISCOVER: Screening

We perform a thorough health screening. During this process, we often utilize iridology. Iridology is a safe and non-invasive technique of reading the iris to understand your body’s condition and to identify abnormalities in organ tissues and systems. This discovery guides our approach to treatment and allows us to monitor results of your treatment program.

It is said that “the eyes are the windows to your soul”. But did you also know that the eyes register information about your underlying health? This is true:

  • The ocular bio-markers in the iris provide information about genetic existence of any disease.
  • Through the technique of reflex marking, the iris can show evidence of trauma in organ tissue and systems.
  • The iris holds evidence of inflammation and abnormal conditions.

Iridology is a useful tool in monitoring the success of your treatment program.

General Acupuncture
Judy Johnson, M.S., L.Ac., Chief Practitioner of Blooming Orchid Wellness, is one of a few practitioners in the State of Maryland licensed to administer three different types of acupuncture in a treatment protocol. The three types are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) and Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KM). This is unique because the acupuncture treatment protocol that we select is designed to match your body’s specific needs.
At Blooming Orchid Wellness, we believe that most illness, disease and deficiencies stem from an imbalance in the digestive tract. We will give special attention to your digestive health as we develop your treatment protocol regardless of your health concern or complaint. Some of our patients deal with issues such as:
Allergies (General and Seasonal)
Anxiety and Stress
Gastrointestinal Issues (Bloating, Gas, Reflux, Constipation)
Gynecological Issues
Headaches and Migraines
Musculoskeletal Pain (Neck, Back, Hip, Joint)
Neurological Issues (Dizziness, Difficulty Swallowing, Double Vision, Slurred Speech, Vertigo)
Acupuncture is grounded in the theory that blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body’s energy, or “Qi”, can cause health issues. During your acupuncture treatment, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points throughout the body to restore the flow of your Qi, balance the body’s energy, stimulate healing and promote relaxation. Acupuncture works by stimulating the release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals) and engaging the nervous system to release chemicals that regulate blood flow and pressure, reduce inflammation and calm the brain.

Your treatment protocol may include pairing other techniques with acupuncture treatment, such as:

  • Cupping – Glass cups are applied to the skin to cause a suction effect. Cupping is used to relieve stagnation of Qi and enhance blood flow.
  • Moxibustion – Moxibustion, also known as “moxa”, involves the use of heating a dried herb called mugwort on or near the acupuncture needles in order to stimulate the acupuncture points and increase the flow of Qi.
  • Electro-acupuncture – An electrical device is connected to the acupuncture needles; it provides a low current that enhances additional stimulation for the needles.
  • Gua Sha – Gua Sha involves the use of a smooth-edged massage tool to scrape the skin; it is especially helpful in the treatment of issues such as chronic pain and inflammation.

Cosmetic Acupuncture
At Blooming Orchid Wellness, we pair traditional techniques with cosmetic acupuncture in order to address the internal stressors that contribute to aging and to trigger a self-repair response in the skin. This non-invasive and natural approach has many benefits including revitalized skin, a brighter complexion, a more youthful appearance, improved muscle tone and increased circulation.
Cosmetic acupuncture can be applied as treatment for a myriad of issues related to the dermis, such as
Age Spots
Eye Bags and Puffiness
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Sagging Eye Lids
Uneven Skin Tone

Blooming Orchid Wellness has another tool in its arsenal to support those dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, stress and chronic pain. This tool, known as Reiki, is a Japanese technique that calls upon strengthening life force energy – the energy that flows through and around you – for balance, harmony, restoration and healing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual, emotional and physical healing and self-improvement.
All of these alternative treatments are holistic and safe; and they may eliminate the need for invasive surgical procedures and prescription drug therapies.

Nutrition is considered the first line of defense in traditional medicine as it provides the energy needed for the body to function.

At Blooming Orchid Wellness, we know the value of good nutrition. Do not be surprised that your treatment program may come with nutritional counseling which may include recommendations for keeping a food journal, making dietary adjustments and consuming herbal supplements.

Because of our commitment to our DAP system, your treatment program will be customized, comprehensive and designed to produce a therapeutic effect – one that will help you bloom again!
