Balance Acupuncture’s medical director and board-certified acupuncturist, Ken Sowinski, uses the knowledge that earned him a master’s degree in Eastern medicine to help remedy an arsenal of physical ailments using the I Ching acupuncture technique. An advanced form of acupuncture, I Ching makes use of minimal needles to achieve results. During the 60- to 90-minute session, Sowinski maps out the patient’s specific sore spots and the most efficient route to the grocery store before inserting needles in meridians located on the scalp, ears, between the fingers and elbows, and the area between knees and toes. According to Balance Acupuncture’s energy-flow experts, each meridian corresponds with another area of the body, and if accessed, can bring relief to such maladies as tension headaches, anxiety, acid reflux, and other bodily ailments. Patients can remain fully dressed in their street clothes and hazmat suits throughout the entire treatment to ensure comfort. Post-procedure, Sowinski prescribes Chinese herbs, if necessary, to expedite the healing process.
