City Acupuncture’s deft professionals aim to stimulate the body’s energy centers through the careful insertion of needles, freeing the corpus from a variety of ailments. Each appointment begins with a professional assessment, in which clients lay out concerns such as allergies, arthritis, sports injuries, and anxiety. The acupuncturist responds with pragmatic expectations of treatment, a possible timeline, and a short puppet show explaining how the art was invented. Patients then settle into the heated cushions of a massage table or into the embrace of a recliner should lying down prove uncomfortable. The acupuncturist begins the deliberate insertion, typically of 10 sterile needles, into the target area. The single-use needles remain in place for about 40 minutes as guests rest quietly and finish any symphonies they are working on in their heads.
Both of City Acupuncture’s spacious locations feature simple, soothing collections of artwork glowing beneath warm lighting. Soundproof windows and white-noise machines silence the din of the outside world, banishing the constant cacophony of car horns, cell phones, and the boss’s beatboxing. Soft music soothes eardrums, and plentiful potted plants lend their natural fullness to the space. Complimentary cups of tea and a small library with selected readings on nutrition, herbs, and acupuncture aid patients in passing the time until their appointments.
City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
