A Sanctuary Body acupuncture client rests peacefully


After discussing how you feel and observing your body’s signals, your acupuncturist will stimulate points on the body’s meridian pathways, through which vital energy is thought to flow. The needles are so hair-thin and flexible that you’ll hardly feel them going in. When gently stimulated, the needles may produce a mild achy pressure, or an “electrical” sensation moving down the meridian pathways. You’ll then rest with the needles in place for 20-30 minutes. Feel free to squeeze in a nap! Most patients find acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying, and leave feeling relaxed and restored.

Don’t hesitate to bring any physical or mental health issue to your acupuncturist. This ancient science can alleviate pain, treat digestive and respiratory complaints, and help with everything from reproductive issues to anxiety and depression. Manual therapies including myofascial massage, Cupping, Gua Sha, or Tui Na are offered as optional add-ons to your treatment. Sanctuary Body also offers specialized acupuncture treatments for relief and recovery from sports injuries, as well as facial rejuvenation, addiction treatment, and Battlefield Acupuncture, which uses semi-permanent needles (3-5 days) to alleviate pain quickly with a prolonged effect.

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative. Depending on your condition, may begin to feel relief after the first few treatments. Chronic conditions may take a bit longer to respond.

"The knowledge base and skill set of the staff are exceptional. It has been a couple of decades since I have focused on this level of self-care and I have found the right place. I fully recommend Sanctuary Body."

- Art Rosenbaum
