Gardens Acupuncture and Wellness Center nurtures the natural healing abilities of each client by combining massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies into personalized treatment packages. During each aromatherapy Swedish massage, a licensed and certified massage therapist mollifies stress-laden muscles with strokes of medium-to-strong pressure and various essential oils by Young Living, depending on the needs of each client. By working with the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors, the therapists aim to invoke wellness and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress. In addition to helping to improve circulation, the massage promotes balance and emotional well being by unleashing holistic Dobermans to patrol the body's valleys in search of negative-energy intrusions.
