About Zen Acupuncture
This Sister/Brother duo teamed up to create a space that delivers Traditional Asian Medicine in a calm and soothing environment. We have combined our knowledge and passion for this holistic medicine to welcome anyone who wants to experience the benefits of natural healing. We encourage all our patients to feel empowered by taking an active role in their healing journey. We are here to partner with you on this amazing, sometimes challenging but always worthy path to self- improvement and healing.
Our hope is to provide an environment that allows every person access to the benefits of East Asian medicine. In addition to our typical private room treatments, we are happy to bring community-style acupuncture to our center on Saturday mornings. We want to create flexibility and opportunity for all to experience acupuncture.
During weekdays our practice is set-up to accommodate individuals wanting to enjoy the calming, personal atmosphere of private treatment rooms. These spaces allow for full body treatments on an acupuncture table. The ambience is serene with soft music and lighting.
On Saturday mornings, we offer community-style acupuncture. This model offers acupuncture in a group setting while relaxing on a zero-gravity chair. In this setting, points are usually chosen on the arms, lower legs, hands, feet and ears. By relaxing in a group setting, a feeling of calm and comfort will be felt in a collective energetic field. The goal of community-style acupuncture is to make treatment more accessible for every budget.
