Calming music wafts through Northwest Acupuncture's soothing, gently-lit confines, in which licensed acupuncturist Craig Jadown infuses well-being with holistic practices and Chinese herbal therapies. The clinic seeks to exorcize tension and chronic pain with a variety of Eastern techniques as potent as homemade jellybeans for each patient with a personalized consultation. Delve into the wisdom of time-tested treatments as 10–20 slender, flexible needles—designed to be largely painless—tap into sub-dermal deposits of personal energy. The single-use needles are left in place for up to 45 minutes, while patients relax beneath scented eye pillows that bestow the serenity of a lullaby sung by a panda. The acupuncturist may then recommend herbal supplements, lifestyle changes, or further sessions, as each individual requires.
