We are taking two ancient & effective therapeutic modalities, and combining them into an event of ultimate relaxation.

Acupuncture is an ancient therapy used to alleviate stress, pain and anxiety- sound meditation ('sound baths') soothes you into a deeper relaxation.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that is used to alieve stress, pain and anxiety. Very, very thin needles are inserted in a safe way on specific parts of your body. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture opens up the pathways for energy (or 'qi') to flow through the body. From a scientific perspective, acupuncture stimulates the nerves in the brain and spinal cord and releases feel good chemicals, such as opioids and serotonin. We will be placing needles between your eyebrows (on your third eye), on your heart and on your head (your crown chakra).

Sound Meditation is the practice of using ancient Tibetan instruments such as gongs and singing bowls to sooth you into a deeper meditation. For those of you who have never been to a "sound bath" before, here is what you can expect: You lie down and are bathed head to toe in sound— it's a very dreamy, ethereal experience.

Cost: $60
