Acu-Na Wellness Center, now located in the Fletcher neighborhood, offers a wide range of wellness services from holistic health consultations to organic day spa treatments––including body scrubs, body wraps, and facials––to fitness courses, wellness consultations and programs, hydration therapy, and acupuncture. To an acupuncturist, the body’s surface is not just skin; it’s a map that can be used to refresh natural functions and mute chronic pains. This is done with very thin needles, which encourage the body to heal when inserted in specific points, a process that many describe as painless and relaxing. This ancient Eastern healing method is just one of the natural modalities that Acu-Na Wellness Center’s primary practitioner Mary J. Houge has mastered. She wields training in Chinese herbs, bodywork, functional nutrition, and lifestyle education to soothe such common bodily issues as neuro-endocrine imbalances to high blood pressure and cholesterol. Along with a team of massage therapists, wellness coaches, hydration specialists, and aestheticians, her associate staff––which includes a Kundalini yoga instructor––Mary helps to support healthy lifestyles by offering a FirstLine therapeutic lifestyle program, as well as an assortment of fitness classes such as personalized wellness coaching and sports nutrition training.
