During 60- to 90-minute acupuncture sessions, student interns needle patients under the sharp eye of the licensed acupuncturists on staff. Save time at check-in by printing out and completing new-patient paperwork before the appointment.
Designed to welcome students of all levels, Sheng Zhen Gong classes nurture awareness and balance with a combination of gentle movement, breathing exercises, and stillness. During Introduction to Energy Psychology, students work to overcome limiting beliefs, minor phobias, and other psychological challenges by self-administering mild acupressure treatments with their fingertips. In Dancing from the Deep Within, music, movement, and breath are used to create an inner awareness of the body and evoke a state of deep relaxation. Finally, Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes lead students into a recognition of how they organize, sequence, and produce movement, identifying any habits or rigidities that can be altered to improve efficiency.
