$20 for Auricular-Acupuncture Session ($40 Value)
During a treatment designed to reduce pain by unblocking the body's energy-meridian pathways, an acupuncturist gently places tiny, disposable needles at five specified sites along the external portion of the ear. The procedure can target specific areas of discomfort throughout the body, and is also used to decrease stress, promote general well-being, and allow the body to heal more efficiently.
Great Lakes Wellness Group
Jim Bertrau, the founder of Great Lakes Wellness Group, turned to alternative medicine as a result of his own personal experiences with healthcare. After conventional medical treatments failed to meet his needs, Bertrau discovered that eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and raising his own spiritual awareness were the keys to better health. He now believes that the path to overall health begins with treating the whole person, rather than the symptoms.
To share what he has learned, Bertrau performs holistic treatments that address the underlying causes of disease and discomfort, all without the use of drugs or surgery. He empowers people to actively participate in their own future well-being by offering nutritional consultations and customized, four-phase programs designed to get to the root cause of illness. The programs include a pH analysis to check sugar and salt levels, a personalized food plan, and a live-cell analysis—a nutritional-microscopy technique used to find internal imbalances. Bertrau is also certified in auricular acupuncture by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), which he uses to diminish stress and pain by placing needles at five designated points along the outer ear.
