Nurturing a balanced body
Integrative acupuncture is the stimulation of points on the body with small, fine, and flexible needles. It can be used to disrupt illness, disease or pain that is interfering with our flow of energy, or ‘qi’. Throughout time these energetic pathways may experience illness, stress, or disease and can become obstructed or over-active leaving us in pain. These areas are examined and needled, in conjunction with light massage or heat to improve mobility, comfort, and overall well-being. Adjustments to these energetic pathways allow us to reach optimal health, to live life to the fullest.
