At Mount Vernon Wellness, staffers whisk away pain, stress, and other disorders from of the body with soothing acupuncture and massage treatments. Bodies in need of a kneading can undergo a massage and acupuncture package, which can be used together, split into different appointments, or split up into one-second increments for the student body of a local community college. Practitioners eschew needles during the massage, instead slowly stroking muscles to dislodge deep-seated aches and soreness.
Staffers lavish clients with individualized care during acupuncture sessions, which employ sterile, hair-thin needles to manipulate the body's qi and dispel ailments such as arthritis, migraines, and poor grammar. Up to eight people receive the pins' healing pokes in the community session. Private sessions personalize treatments for each patient, tackling tough problems such as anxiety or allergies.
