Sustaining Affordable and Effective Treatment

In Asia, acupuncture traditionally consisted of a quick intake, pulse & tongue diagnosis, and several people lying with needles in one communal room. This model can work in the West as well. By treating people all together, it is much more affordable for everyone, allowing for more frequent treatments, and faster results.

Experience the collective healing energy of our community as we receive acupuncture together.
