Before stepping foot into his namesake practice within the Willo Medical Building, licensed acupuncturist Anthony Lorenzo spent hundreds of hours learning the ins and out of Chinese herbal treatments and acupuncture. This dedication led to a master's degree in Oriental medicine as well as a specialization in the Japanese style of acupuncture.
Today, from his intimate practice, Lorenzo employs this form of acupuncture, which uses fine, sterile needles and minimal manipulation to increase blood flow, reduce discomfort, and increase energy levels more effectively than a dose of motor oil. The ancient treatment also works to reduce aches and pains caused by headaches, digestive issues, and autoimmune disorders.
