Licensed acupuncturist and herbologist Gina Haber treats hormonal imbalances, depression, pregnancy pains, allergies, and other bodily woes with traditional Chinese techniques and healing practices. During a thorough consultation, the needle-wielding practitioner completes a comprehensive medical-history evaluation and a traditional pulse diagnosis of the body's 12 energy channels before determining a diagnosis and potential treatment plan. Next, tension, pains, and hors d'oeuvres are gently skewered and whisked away by individually packaged and sterilized needles during the 30-minute acupuncture session. Finally, nimble digits explore and deconstruct knots and tension like a Boy Scout literature professor.
A holistic health-care system that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago, acupuncture aims to treat acute and chronic disorders by connecting with the body's energy patterns and redirecting its channels without having to swallow a remote control. Reactions to the treatment vary from person to person, but may include slight pressure, soreness, warmth, or numbness.
