Licensed acupuncturist Minal Patel draws on her master’s of science in oriental medicine to stimulate natural healing with precision manipulation of pressure points. As acupuncture and acupressure can help alleviate many ailments, including anxiety, depression, allergies, insomnia, and neck and back pain, sessions begin with a brief investigation into the client's medical past to determine goals for the treatment. Acupuncturists lightly place hair-thin needles into skin-suits for 20–30 minutes with the goal of redirecting energy flow like an amateur electrician testing an outlet with a fork, balancing bodies, and promoting overall health. Acupressure upholds a similar set of goals, but accomplishes them by applying finger pressure to energy epicenters for 40-45 minutes, melting muscular tension and improving blood flow.
Minal Patel L.Ac.
Minal has travelled far and wide to strengthen her skills as an acupuncturist and herbalist. In her quest to obtain a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine, she not only traversed California to attend two different universities, but also ventured to Tokyo. While there, she dove into the wealth of knowledge found in the Traditional Japanese Medicine Seminar of Acupuncture & Moxibustion. She also studied with expert acupuncturists, earning a Certificate of Completion from the President of the International Society of Traditional Japanese Medicine, as well as a Certificate of Recognition from the President of Goto College of Medical Arts and Sciences. Today, Minal applies her international education to ease her patients’ discomfort from addictions, allergies, asthma, hypertension, or their fear of embroidery.
