What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a minimally invasive method of Chinese medicine that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. It works by stimulating nerve-rich areas of the skin’s surface to influence various functions and areas of the body, including glands, organs, and tissues. Acupuncture helps to stimulate the immune system and promotes circulation to the treated area, which can, in turn, speed up wound healing and control pain.

After my initial session with Lauren, I knew I was in the right place.  Within my three months of treatment, she was able to accomplish results that I have not been able to achieve through physical therapy or medication. 
Healing begins as Lauren enters the room.  She is totally focused, carefully listens, and is fully engaged in the healing process.  Her compassion and holistic knowledge is indisputable.  She not only treated my problem areas but took on my body as a whole.
Her work has greatly improved the quality of my life.
