National-board-certified acupuncturist Mark Dedrick customizes Chinese-inspired holistic healing methods to help bodies overcome a variety of maladies. During appointments, clients relax in the studio's infrared-heated room while Mark devotes his full attention to treating them. He may use sterile needles to redirect nerve impulses and trigger the body's self-healing capabilities, stimulate blood flow with cupping techniques, or knead muscles during tui na massage. Mark can also place seeds at strategic points over the ears, which can be compressed to address sensations such as cigarette cravings and subconscious spy orders.
