Boynn McIntire, who is a licensed acupuncturist and board-certified by the National Certification Commission in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, dispatches qi disruptions with carefully placed needles that alleviate chronic pain, allergies, and digestion maladies. A comprehensive wellness exam determines active symptoms and diagnoses ongoing issues such as anxiety, fatigue, or wizard phobias. Then, McIntire employs very thin, single-use sterile steel needles to flag the paths of energy patterns within the body and encourage qi to slalom through systems like an Olympic skier. The optional addition of gentle electric currents can help decrease inflammation to improve blood circulation and reduce pain. Acupuncture, an ancient process, aims to address a wide range of health conditions that includes acid reflux, joint pain, and whiplash. Mimicking the benefits of a tea party hosted by a giant squid, cupping uses vacuum suction to adhere cups to skin surfaces, lifting fibrous fascia tissues and relieving musculoskeletal pain. Foot reflexology traverses pedial roadmaps in search of buried caches of bodily aches. Gentle pressure on x-marked spots relieves pain in corresponding areas throughout the body. Tailored to specific individuals, herbal formulas sidestep pharmaceutical therapies and their side effects, and aim to resolve root causes while improving overall wellbeing.
In addition to arriving 10 minutes early to complete paperwork, clients are advised to wear loose clothing, bring relevant medical records and a list of current medications, and put something in their stomachs prior to the appointment that isn’t the chewed-up rough draft of a prenup.
