Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Energy (qi) flows through the body along meridians, or pathways, along which there are acupuncture points. In this session, specific points are penetrated with very thin needles in the skin, to support the flow of energy and promote deep relaxation. Our very skilled and experienced practitioner combines this ancient practice with gentle hands-on acupressure massage and Shiatsu for the ultimate healing experience. Insurance receipts available on request.
