The holistic professionals at The Healing Roots tend to multiple patients at once during community acupuncture, an approach that hearkens back to acupuncture’s origins as a group treatment practice. At the initial session, clients undergo a health assessment—which may include diagnostics such as health questions, pulse readings, and a round of Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes—so therapists can identify the best course of treatment. Patients remain comfortably clothed as they relax for 30–45 minutes—typically in a recliner—in a sunlit studio among fellow patients. Healers then place sterile, disposable stainless steel needles on clients’ extremities. By stimulating specific points believed to correspond to other areas of the body, treatments strive to balance qi—the natural flow of bodily energy—to unlock each body’s ability to heal itself. Acupuncture is believed to relieve an array of maladies from colds to chronic pain and may even help those trying to quit eating cigarettes.

The hot-stone massage combines therapeutic and relaxation work with heated basalt and jade stones prized for their high heat retention and long lineage of skipping champions. Typically placed on the back, the stones radiate warmth into the body to promote further muscle expansion, allowing massage therapists to work more deeply into tissues.

The Healing Roots

Joshua Webster attended the College of International Holistic Studies, where he studied acupuncture’s many different forms, including variants for the hands, ears, and cosmetic purposes. He showcases his skill set during communal acupuncture sessions inside The Healing Roots’ minimalist, wood-floored space. In addition to treating patients and scaring off parade balloons with his needles, he offers other alternative health therapies as well, including yoga, hot-stone massage, cupping, and herbal medicine.
