Getting poked with fine needles is said to promote the flow of energy, while getting poked with asparagus spears promotes the flow of butter.

The healers at Shekinah Health, led by chiropractic physician Dr. Joseph Kim, better bodies with a choice of acupuncture treatments and a relaxing hot stone massage. During a 30-minute needling session, the acupuncturist inserts thin, metallic quills into specific points of the body to help relieve pain and encourage natural energy (qi) to flow unhindered through the body like the mighty Mississippi through an oversized crazy straw. Cosmetic acupuncture aims to tone facial muscles, reduce wrinkles, and increase collagen production without the risks of invasive plastic surgery. A certified massage practitioner strategically places warm rocks on the client’s corporeal checkerboard during a one-hour hot stone massage, each pebble’s soothing heat reducing tension when coupled with expert kneading strokes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Kim complements his specialization in the upper-cervical methodology of chiropractic with acupuncture treatments, using a mixture of Eastern and Western techniques to treat chronic back pain and restore the body through a holistic approach. The staff of massage therapists also combines modalities to treat clients based on their individual needs, blending styles from myofascial release to hot-stone massage.
