As an ideal adjunct to chiropractic care, we use acupuncture when we see health problems that seem to be caused by disruption to energy pathways in your body called meridians. This centuries-old healing discipline is designed to focus on the integrity of bodily systems.

The best part? It’s extremely relaxing, comfortable and gentle.

How Does it Work?

acupuncture needles in shoulderDuring a session, we’ll place extremely thin needles into various points of your body that require attention. We’ll identify these areas after speaking with you about the problems you’re experiencing. Most patients don’t ever feel the needles being inserted because they’re incredibly gentle and thin.

The best way to think about what’s happening as you undergo an acupuncture session is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians.

These meridians can experience a “traffic jam” and energy flow can become restricted. The needles help loosen the jam and allow energy to circulate properly.

The idea is that your body works better when your internal traffic (nerves and energy) are flowing freely.

Meet Our Acupuncturist, Sandy

Sandy graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture with a Masters of Oriental Medicine degree and received her license to practice Acupuncture and Herbology in Massachusetts in 2018. She established a private Practice in Concord, MA for 3 years, before moving with her husband to be closer to family in Minnesota.

She enjoys gardening, sports, running, hiking, practicing yoga, and qi gong. After a first career in early childhood development and education, she saw how profoundly nutrition, exercise and individualized care impacted the health and well-being of the children and parents that she worked with. She became increasingly interested in learning about holistic health care, returning to school to study acupuncture, herbs, whole-foods, and plant-based nutrition.
