New Patient Acupuncture Session
Acupuncture Session
Acu-Massage: A full 1-hour massage focusing strictly on the 12 main acupuncture channels. Acupuncture channels flow constantly throughout the body. Over time and from our lifestyle choices they channels can become less efficient which can lead to a myriad of problems mentally, emotionally and physically. Each channel is massaged with attention to specific acupuncture points on each channel. It is a means to “tap” into the dynamic energies of each channel allowing free flow of possible stuck, stagnate energy, likened to removing sticks and leaves in a stream to allow it to flow efficiently.
