Lisa Kingsley, LMT, AP, RN – “Acupuncture and Massage Specialist”
Acu-sage is a wonderful treatment that combines acupuncture and massage. The benefits of this 50/50 procedure are many. The broad strokes of massage increase circulation and warm an area, along with stretching techniques that lubricate joints and connective structures allowing for less restrictions and better movement. Add to this, tiny acupuncture needles that penetrate superficial tissues and activate a network of cells. These cells trigger a biochemical release of things such as endorphins (pain relief), and serotonin (feel good), into the system for a much deeper effect. The fusion of the two modalities not only speed up and enhance healing, it just feels good. Each treatment is tailored for individual needs.
