Acacia's team of expert health-care professionals treats clients to individualized, naturopathic, and alternative health care in a relaxed setting. One-hour acupuncture sessions place patients in the expert hands of Victoria Spaurel, a registered acupuncturist and Chinese-medical-theory enthusiast. Practitioners insert needles into specific pressure points and frayed stitching on clients' bodies, working to balance overall energy levels. Acupuncture therapy aims to treat a wide array of health concerns, including chronic pain, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, bipolar disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, and being filled with helium. Although it improves stress levels and cell-phone reception for many clients, therapy is not recommended for candidates with bleeding disorders or needle phobias. Patients currently taking blood thinners such as warfarin may bruise more easily during their sessions, and clients taking any kind of medication are instructed to inform their practitioners.
