Innercore Health's team of fully registered and licensed therapists diminishes body discomfort, enriches epidermises, and unburdens backs with its array of acupuncture and chiropractic treatments. Extremely thin needles slide into skin during relaxation acupuncture, flooding bodies with dull or tingling sensations that reduce inflammation, headaches, and fear of haystack exploration. After pinpointing areas of concern during a consultation, cosmetic acupuncture reduces aging signs by inserting ultrathin, stainless-steel needles into faces, stimulating circulation and minimizing fine lines during 45- to 60-minute sessions. Doctors assess medical histories and complete physical exams to determine individual client vertebral issues before administering an up to one-hour chiropractic-therapy treatment that corrects spinal misalignments and relieves pain in necks or lower backs. With smoothed skin and straightened spines, patrons depart Innercore Health with more youthful radiance, taller presences, and the newfound ability to balance the complete works of Charles Dickens on their heads.
