Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year’s party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy! category.

Practicing acupuncture for 23 years, Steve Paine OMD holistically addresses aches and pains with a combination of needle, massage, and heat therapies. During the initial consultation, Dr. Paine zeros in on overall health issues with a series of questions that may address pain, eating habits, sleep patterns, or irrational nightmares about pine trees. Dr. Paine then uses a combination of massage, electromagnetic heat, and the insertion of very fine, sterile needles to activate neurotransmitters within the body—restoring proper functioning to the body’s numerous systems. Addressing a plethora of issues ranging from stress to organ pain, the treatment boasts an increase in overall immune function to keep bodies fighting sickness and virulent strains of the Mondays.
