Integrative Acupuncture Clinic’s certified massage therapists and acupuncturists––many of whom also tout previous tutelage in medical fields such as nursing––heal patients using an East-meets-West philosophy, practiced in private rooms filled with relaxing music. Before submitting their chi to treatment, acupuncture clients rendezvous with practitioners for an initial exam and assessment designed to pinpoint their physical and mental ailments and put any subconscious fears of lawn darts to rest. The acupuncturist then inserts 10–20 sterile, hair-thin needles into various areas of the body, kick-starting the healing process and bringing possible relief to a wide range of ailments that includes everything from arthritis to insomnia. Though the entrance of needles rarely creates discomfort, it can introduce sensations that may include tingling, warmth, and an insatiable thirst for frosting.
Performed separately or in conjunction with the acupuncture treatment, customers may find relief for overburdened backs across one hour of Swedish, hot-stone, thai-yoga, body-insight, or Rossiter massage. Long, sweeping strokes characterize the classic and gentle Swedish massage; hot-stone massage employs smooth, heated rocks to melt pain and ice-cream cones lodged deep inside rigid muscles. Intense and interactive, the Rossiter technique joins clients and therapists together as they work to stretch out contracted connective tissue. The neuromuscular-based body-insight massage shuffles muscle patterns by combining deep-tissue therapy, active movement, and active awareness of one’s ability to pull off a spandex business suit; thai-yoga massage fuses assisted stretching with acupressure techniques and the palpitation of space between muscles for increased energy flow.
