Ancient Chinese wisdom gave mankind the Great Wall, the only structure on Earth visible from space, as well as General Tso’s chicken, the only food tolerated by finicky astronauts.

The Birch Center's certified acupuncturists, David and Melissa Sokulski, holistically assuage a variety of ailments in their clinic's soothing, pastel-colored confines. A pre-session consultation allows patients to communicate specific concerns or goals while ensuring a treatment as personalized as a snowflake's prom dress.

The slender, flexible needles—used just once to maintain cleanliness—generally cause very little discomfort as they unlock inner health, energy reserves, and safe-deposit boxes hidden beneath rib cages.
The Birch Center for Health
At The Birch Center for Health, acupuncturist David Sokulski uses the skills that he mastered at New England School of Acupuncture— the oldest acupuncture school in the United States. He delicately inserts hair-thin needles into predetermined spots across the body, stimulating the flow of energy to treat ailments such as fertility issues, depression, and physical pain. He also practices cosmetic acupuncture, a technique that increases circulation to restore a healthy glow to the skin. Birch branches and miniature smiling Buddhas adorn their peaceful studio.
