The instructors and practitioners at TendingShen devote themselves to spreading the word of acupuncture from its roots in Eastern Asia to Western shores. They believe that five-element acupuncture—a descendant of traditional Japanese and Korean styles—makes a versatile complement to Western medicine, augmenting treatments that address ailments metabolically with holistic methods designed to stimulate the body’s own natural healing.

Patricia Mahone and Barbara Simpson, the healers at Gate of Life, treat patients holistically, employing a combination of modern Western medicine and traditional Eastern acupuncture and moxibustion. The duo use their years of experience and understanding of Five Element acupuncture to treat the root cause of patients' pain. Sessions commence with an initial assessment, during which therapists evaluate patients' medical history and determine that they are not evil twins. The therapist then gently inserts the thin needles along the body, targeting specific energy points to help to relieve aches, strengthen the immune system, increase energy levels, and, ultimately, free up stagnant chi. Gate of Life also provides moxibustion sessions⎯burning cones made of the Chinese plant moxa⎯along the acupuncture's injection sites to enhance the treatment's effects.
