The body’s energy stream, like a castle’s moat, protects it from attacks by foreign invaders—all while avoiding the hassle of carrying boiling oil in one's mouth.

Under the steady hand of certified practitioner Greg “Isa” Holloway, Coastal Acupuncture's services heal body and mind bugaboos using traditional Chinese, Japanese, scalp, and auricular styles. Isa starts the treatment with a one-on-one consultation that catches him up on each patient's medical history and assuages any concerns they may have about acupuncture, such as "Does it hurt?" and "Will acupuncture affect my ability to speak the language of goldfish?" Holloway then patiently needlepoints a small sampling of pressure points in a pattern tailored to treat the malady, be it migraine, depression, seasonal allergy, or a musculoskeletal issue such as tennis elbow and sack race knee.
Licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a Georgia native, Isa Holloway, who accrued expertise under the tutelage of Southwest Acupuncture College's Doctors of Oriental Medicine, facilitates full-body holistic healing with the strategic application of tiny needles during acupuncture treatments. Sessions aim to alleviate health woes—including allergies and sleep dysfunctions caused by recurring nightmares of cookie monsters under the bed—and additional pampering, such as topical herbs, hot tea, foot acupressure, and guided meditation, further encourage overall wellbeing. Alternatively, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, and patients have the option to pair sessions with microcurrent or light energies to further vivify faces.
