$25 Acupuncture Treatments
We offer customized acupuncture care in an open studio format. A peaceful treatment is enjoyed in reclining chairs while relaxed music is streamed and voices are hushed. Patients are able to stay fully dressed during their full body-mind treatment. This model of treatment has become popular in most major cities; it allows this simple and effective system of healthcare to be offered to those without insurance benefits.
We most often see clients for:
- immune support
- hormone balancing
- sleep issues
- wellness and preventative care

“I think I just found a really good thing.” -C.C.

Plan Your Visit
At Mend we have adopted an open studio format for our treatment space. You will walk into the warm and inviting treatment space to a handful of quiet treatment “nooks”. You can find a chair in a bright and sunny spot or one under the dim, warm light of the glass chandeliers above. Others will be resting nearby in their own comfortable reclining chair while their treatment is in progress.
Privacy in an Open Studio
Privacy and tranquility is easily accomplished with hushed voices and relaxing music streaming in. Clients remain fully dressed; we only need to reach your lower legs and arms to be able to offer a full body-mind treatment.
One of our friendly and knowledgeable acupuncturists will sit with you for a few minutes to ask a few questions, learn of anything specific you’d like from your treatment and also to listen to your pulses (traditional Chinese diagnostic technique) to determine the best route with your custom treatment. She will insert between 4-10 sterile hair-thin needles into various points on your legs, feet, arms, hands, ears or head.
Your treatments may last an hour or perhaps less. It can take between 20-45 minutes for a treatment to fully circulate. How will you know when your treatment is complete? For most folks there is a “curve” affect where they might initially feel a busy mind when the needles first go in and then they will often settle into a more relaxed mental state or even fall into a cat nap. As the treatment completes the mind becomes alert again.
After your Visit
Clients often report that they feel different leaving their treatment than they did coming in. That is the first subtle sign that something has shifted with treatment. Beyond that what you can expect next varies significantly from person to person. If your goal is to alleviate pain, we would expect you to see some result fairly immediately (if not right way, then within 24 hours). The effectiveness of your treatments will increase with frequency. Your initial treatments will only “hold” for 24-72 hours; your next visit will carry you a bit further. After 4-6 visits you will have a good sense of what you can expect from your treatments. You will have chipped away at old stuck patterns and have moved into a much more fluid place.
