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. She may also employ other traditional techniques such as moxibustion and cupping. Insurance receipts available on request.
1.5 hours….. $175 initial session     1 hour….. $120 repeat session

A potent integration of relaxing massage strokes and a sequence of acupoint pressure. This session inspires deep release and relaxation, promoting Qi flow through the meridian system, opening channels for the harmonious flow of energy throughout the body.
