Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
