Scott Dorn and Andrew Young—graduates of the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine—lead a learned team of acupuncturists and massage therapists while doling out potent doses of relaxation. A 2,000-year-old Chinese practice, acupuncture aims to boost the body’s ability to heal itself and squeeze into a suitcase as pins or applied pressure encourage energy pathways, known as meridians, to open up and aid the balance of yin and yang. A consultation determines patients’ mental or physical pains before inserting needles in some of the 2,000 acupuncture regions across the body. Customers can also shirk pinpricks for a massage, during which a massage therapist breaks out techniques usually used to make gingerbread men while working soft tissue out of its funk, aiming to boost healthy circulation and alleviate tension and anxiety.

About Berkeley Community Acupuncture and Massage
Traditional Chinese medicine is built on the belief that healing begins when the two forces at work within the body settle into equilibrium. The practitioners at Berkeley Community Acupuncture and Massage trust this holistic principle will overcome their modern patients’ afflictions just like it did for those who practiced it before “ouch” was even assigned a petroglyph. Their acupuncture and massage treatments cure pain and disease from the inside out, and whereas acupuncture enlists thin needles to rebalance the flow of energy through the body, massage does the same thing using gentle kneading motions. Clients can combine the techniques or select just one in order to help ease digestive and respiratory disorders or simply diminish the stress of daily life.
