“Acupuncture is an ancient system of complementary medicine. An acupuncture treatment involves gently inserting tiny needles into different areas of the body, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical and emotional conditions. Originating in China over 3,500 years ago, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.”
Consultations are with one of the members of our master acupuncture team. Consultations are required prior to all initial acupuncture sessions and repeated when a client has one year between regular sessions. Consultations are also used for herbal and nutritional guidance.
