Experiential + Collaborative
The Rest method of acupuncture is a casual and collaborative group experience. It can be used to fix an imbalance or as a regular meditative practice. There is an innate ability within our bodies and minds to self-correct if given the opportunity, and we use acupuncture to help free up this potential.
While acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, we believe the best use of acupuncture is to receive treatments on a regular basis, as preventative therapy, with the objective of maintaining wellness and balance.
What to expect
The initial consultation will begin with a private conversation about your health history, along with any diagnosed condition or symptom you would like to address. We will also discuss your goals, so that we can suggest which of our treatments will be specific to your needs.
After the consultation you will be brought to one of our four open space treatment tables, where you will choose from one of your recommended acupuncture options. You will be needled while you lie on your back in a relaxed position and have the opportunity to close your eyes and rest for the remainder of your session.
Acupuncture needles are very thin, single-use, sterile, stainless steel needles. The sensation of insertion can range from completely painless to a slight discomfort. Once the needles have been inserted, most people experience a sense of deep relaxation, similar to a meditative or dreamlike state.
IS REST RIGHT FOR You?
REST is designed for anyone looking for balance and to experience a deep state of relaxation. It is especially good for those with conditions related to chronic stress. If you are interested in treating an acute injury or illness (i.e. a recent knee injury or chest cold), you might consider a private treatment we offer. (see SERVICES)
