Kristen and Seth Wood first experienced the therapeutic benefits of acupuncture as patients, although it wasn’t long before they established expertise behind the fine, sterile needles. After studying the medical art form, they opened their own studio, Snow Blossom Acupuncture, in order to help share acupuncture’s empowering effects. Now joined by a naturopathic physician, a certified rolfer, and a licensed massage therapist, Kristen and Seth are able to increase their clients’ levels of well-being holistically through a blend of Chinese medicine and Western therapies.
Community-acupuncture sessions allow patients to remain fully clothed and relax in a group-treatment setting, although private treatment rooms are also available for more in-depth sessions. Cupping, moxibustion heat therapy, and Chinese herbs rely on historical techniques for relieving pain and bolstering constitutions. For more spa-like sessions, the therapists can also use classic Swedish massage to soothe overstressed muscles and aromatherapy oils to revitalize fading scratch ’n’ sniff stickers.
