City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
Bichelle Harrison, CMT, of The IT Girl Massage Therapy, eases stress and other aches and pains with an array of massage techniques. She attended the Steiner Training Academy in London and cut her teeth massaging thousands of guests on Celebrity Cruise Line. With a sense of relaxation worthy of a cruise, she can perform Swedish and deep-tissue massages using light to firm pressure. Or, she can employ hot lava stones or heated poultices with therapeutic herbs to stimulate and manipulate the muscles as well as a psychiatrist manipulates his dog into doing the chores. Bichelle also makes reflexology massages available to stimulate blood flow by focusing on the pressure points of the feet.
From 1997 to 2014, Mpower Bodywork was known as Massage America, a company that specialized in on-site massages for corporate clients. But over those 17 years, the business continually re-shaped itself, gradually evolving into a practice that offered much more than massage. Today, while almost ten different modalities?among them Swedish, craniosacral, Thai, and prenatal?still comprise its massage canon, the clinic's services include a variety of bodywork therapies, including acupuncture and chiropractic care, all aimed at helping clients function at their physical, mental, and spiritual best. Additional offerings such as nutrition counseling and yoga sessions help guests adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle and develop a closer relationship with their toes, while aesthetic services like facials help improve skin health, which can lead to increased confidence.
