The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine alum Josie Bouchier has completed 3,000 hours of education including 1,000 of clinical practice with training in moxibustion (heat therapy), tui na (Chinese massage), gua sha (friction therapy), acupressure, cupping, and auriculotherapy. She specializes in treating women's issues (menstrual irregularities, fertility issues, pregnancy, delayed labor, post-natal recovery, and menopausal symptoms), but works on a variety of clients. Your 90-minute session includes a consultation, exam, nutritional counseling, and a 45-minute acupuncture session that may help you sleep better, digest better, immune system better, and reenergize.
The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain.

Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season.

Immortal Palace's therapists practice acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine to help patients overcome an array of physical and mental illnesses, from chronic pain and infertility to anxiety and insomnia. Using needles as thin as cats' whiskers, they stimulate different combinations of acupoints to strengthen the flow of chi, or life force, that circulates along the body's energy meridians. The therapists, who specialize in women's health, also oversee a diet program called The Only Nutrition Program You'll Ever Need, which helps participants detoxify their bodies and overcome cravings for sugar.
