The holistic practitioners at Hale Health aim to treat the whole person, not just symptoms of illness and disease. Following the tenets of integrative medicine, they strive to boost clients' wellness with naturopathic services such as pain-relieving bodywork, acupuncture, and nutritional IV therapy.

At Living Well Acupuncture and Wellness Clinic, Candace McWhirter specializes in sports acupuncture to improve athletes' performance and prevent injuries and combines Chinese and Japanese traditions to address a wide variety of acute and chronic infirmities through the ancient healing art of acupuncture. Clients will spend between 45 and 60 minutes balancing chi and releasing stress through tiny pinpoints of relaxation. By inserting hair-thin needles at key junctures, Candace may balance energy levels in the body, reducing stress and pain as fists of tension peacefully unclench. After treating the client with traditional methods, Candace will harness the power of Luminex Laser System technology to administer low-level laser therapy. A near-infrared beam roams over tissues, stirring up cells into a healing frenzy while increasing blood flow. The subthermal laser light may speed up tissue recovery while reducing inflammation and printing invisible tattoos across the skin that are viewable only to robots and MIT graduates. Customers can call ahead to set up their acupuncture appointment.
The staff members at The Qi Spot share a philosophy centered around creating a gentle environment to help patients to forget everyday stressors and focus on bringing their bodies into balance.

Cupping, cosmetic acupuncture, and moxa also help to inspire a healthy flow of chi. Improving energy circulation, like rotating the skeleton's tires, helps to prevent pain and illness by encouraging the body to function smoothly.
