Our Services

There are two ways to receive treatments at Two Trees Acupuncture.

Private Treatments

We offer private treatments in the traditional one on one setting that is most common in America. These treatments include acupuncture, oriental nutrition therapy, Tui Na Chinese medical massage and custom herbal formulas. Your first visit will be for 90 minutes and include a complete health history and treatment. During your initial visit we will develop a customized treatment plan for you that will treat the root cause of your imbalance while addressing the symptoms you’re experiencing. The follow up treatments can last for 60 minutes with a shorter intake and time to relax in the private Willow or Maple room.

Community Treatments

Community acupuncture is a newer model of care in the acupuncture industry. We utilize zero gravity lounge chairs in a group setting and offer these treatments on a sliding scale of $20-$45 so that everyone can afford to receive quality acupuncture. Privacy is maintained by discussing your condition in a separate private room before entering the Oak community room. We utilize acupuncture points on the lower arms and legs, as well as the head, allowing you to stay fully clothed during your treatment. Over 1,000,000 community acupuncture treatments were administered last year and the number is growing! Come be a part of the calmest revolution in healthcare

Tui Na is ideal for painful conditions, but is also effective for internal disorders such as digestive complaints and anxiety.
