Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing with origins dating back more than 2,500 years to China. The benefits of acupuncture are seemingly endless; it has been known to treat conditions such as chronic pain, headaches and migraines, insomnia, PTSD, stress and so much more. Modern Acupuncture, a new franchise concept delivering the natural healing and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture, was founded after discovering that many people don’t realize the incredible benefits of acupuncture; the practice is commonly misunderstood, stigmatized and often hidden behind unapproachable, unmarked storefronts. Modern Acupuncture aims to create a clean, warm and inviting environment where guests can heal and relax.
Contemporary, multi-sensory environment
Modern Acupuncture provides a relaxing retreat where guests can unwind and escape the outside world. The “Zen Den” was designed to send guests into an instant state of tranquility, and is equipped with lounge-style recliners, peaceful music, soothing earthtones and natural wood elements. Guests are immersed in complete serenity as licensed acupuncturists work to ensure full-body healing.
The centuries-old practice of acupuncture has certainly stood the test of time, and Modern Acupuncture uses a refined form of the practice – this method doesn’t require the removal of clothing or needling at the site of symptoms. By placing the needles at specific points on the body, Modern Acupuncture’s licensed acupuncturists are able to access full-body health and promote healing. The needles used are thinner than a strand of hair, and sessions last 30 minutes. Modern Acupuncture also offers cosmetic acupuncture to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore a youthful glow.
Customized experience to get results
All of the acupuncturists at Modern Acupuncture are certified by the State Board of Acupuncture after completing a masters program at an accredited school, and are then further trained on the specific methods used at Modern Acupuncture. All first time visitors will discuss their wellness concerns with one of the licensed acupuncturists who will guide them through the treatment and ensure that guests get the most out of their session. Guests will also receive a customized treatment plan at the end of their visit designed to encourage continued healing.
Modern Acupuncture strives to make guests’ lives better while breaking down the myths that cloud the benefits of acupuncture. The practice is a natural, non-invasive method of treatment that has often been used as a substitute for less safe treatment options such as surgery or prescriptions.
