Flux Acupuncture Lounge
Caitlin Elfving, Debbie McMenemy, and Kim Pfister call their acupuncture practice a lounge for good reason. Upon entering the Flux Acupuncture Lounge’s treatment room, one typically sees a group of relaxed guests sinking into recliners. Patients are encouraged to stay as long as they wish to better absorb the benefits of meticulously placed needles.
Caitlin has a master's in Oriental medicine and uses acupuncture as a noninvasive solution to nagging ailments. Debbie, who also has a master’s in traditional Chinese medicine, focuses on treating pain with acupuncture. She traveled to China frequently during her studies and saw just how effective community acupuncture can be. In practice for more than a decade, Kim is a grad of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz and remains active in the goings ons of the school.
The three health experts use holistic medicine to treat chronic issues, such as hormonal imbalances, and also provide relief from temporary conditions, such as back pain or disappointment after forgetting to make a wish at 11:11.
