Acupuncture

Very small, sterile needles are used to prick the skin or go deeper into the tissue, so that acupuncture can provide pain and stress relief, as well as the resetting of body systems so that they can start and continue to work correctly. 

Bart is also a trained herbal medicine practitioner and can work with you for a herbal plan that works with your needs to improve your health. Includes general acupuncture, dry needling, and herbal medicine.
