Balance Point Acupuncture gently vanquishes maladies with traditional Chinese medicine, carefully placed acupuncture pins, and holistic herbal remedies. During the initial consultation, lasting 10–15 minutes, expert acupuncturists analyze each client's needs by taking a pulse, palpating acupuncture points, and discussing the treatment goals and expectations. After determining which of the 71 meridians of energy in the body need stimulation, expert pin-wielders insert hair-thin needles into the acupuncture points and free pent-up chi. The procedure relaxes the body and mind through needle manipulation, heightening chi levels and dissolving fatigue. Needle-wary patients can opt for pin-free acupressure treatments, which swap out needles for critical pressure applied by a doctor's trained hands and an oversize inflatable hammer.
