Acupuncture

Each acupuncture session is about 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the condition to be treated. Often, various procedures will be applied to best result the issue. Prior to each step or procedure, our acupuncturist will explain process to ensure the comfort of our clients. It is our goal to make sure everyone walks out with a big smile on their face at end of the session, so please let the acupuncturist know if anything makes you uncomfortable.
