Certified acupuncturist Artin Mahboubi gently pricks the body’s points of energy with needles that whittle away at blocks in meridians, which can potentially be the source of physical maladies. Having learned the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture after a sports injury left him seeking alternative modes of treatment, Artin strives to help his patients understand the holistic nature of Eastern medicine. In each safe and sanitary treatment session, he employs his knowledge of needles to carefully knit warm socks around distressed immune systems, kick-starting the healing process for both acute and chronic ailments. The first session begins with a thorough evaluation of the client’s unique health history so Artin can develop a personalized treatment regimen. Stimulating needles then infuse energy points with a pleasant sense of warmth as Artin works delicately to ensure a painless experience.
Each treatment builds on the previous one, and clients who return for second sessions can progress further toward correcting the underlying causes of their symptoms. Though acupuncture boasts no known negative side effects, many clients attest to profound levels of stress relief, improved hormonal balance, and extreme levels of excitement during flu-shot season.
