The downtown-based Asian Therapeutics’ balancing acupuncture wellness treatment is the espresso of acupuncture, packing a hefty dose of therapeutic benefits into the tiny cup of your body. One of the licensed acupuncturists will isolate 11 acupuncture sites along your arms and legs and insert thin needles into these predetermined zones of mystical convergence, which is said to relieve tension, improve circulation, promote digestive health, and strengthen the immune system and lungs. Some people may feel a slight prick upon needle insertion and an ache when the needle is set to the correct depth; many people feel deep relaxation or energetic stimulation during the course of the treatment. There is no need to disrobe for the 30-minute treatment, as manipulation points are located primarily on the arms and lower legs.
