Traditional Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Treatments focus on wellness and balanced health as well as pain and symptom management. This traditional style acupuncture takes place in our communal room where you can sit in a zero-gravity chair with needles in anywhere from 30-45 minutes. Needles are primarily placed in the limbs of the body.  Incorporated treatment strategies include nutritional consulting, Chinese herbal therapy, and breathwork.
