Acupuncture is a profound pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a healing practice with a rich tapestry dating back thousands of years. It is founded on the belief that a vital life force, or Qi, flows through the body in channels. When Qi is in balance, the body is in a state of health. Acupuncture, with its fine needles skillfully inserted into specific points, aims to restore harmony to the flow of Qi. This gentle yet powerful therapy is tailored to the individual, acknowledging the unique balance of body, mind, and spirit in each person.

“I feel like we are doing sacred work together. The gratitude and reverence I feel for my body during a session feels like a prayer. The treatment room is an alter, my body becomes the temple and the medium is giving thanks to divine creator for my life.”

“Oh My God Jay, that was amazing and magical! I’m all in, can you schedule me every other week for the rest of my life. I want to feel this good all the time!”

“I tweaked my lower back and I immediately thought of Jay. I was in bad shape and could hardly move and even had to cancel work. It got way better after the first treatment and I could comfortably go back to work the next day. Jay recommended a treatment plan and got me feeling 100% in no time. I got on a regular acupuncture and massage plan to keep it that way!”

“I tried getting in to see my western doctor and waited 3 months for an appointment. When I finally got in, I was seen for all of 5 minutes, barley asked any questions and given pills which didn’t do anything for my pain but mask it a little. Jay squeezed me in the day after I texted him and got immediate results and a treatment plan that worked! Now I tell everyone about Jay.”

“I went in to my allopathic doctor for my chronic knee pain, and was referred to surgery, given pills and scheduled for a knee replacement. I didn’t want to get surgery but didn’t know what else to do. I was desperate. I called Jay and he got me in for an combo acupuncture and massage session. He took the time to explain in detail what was going on in my knee, that there are no quick fixes and we set up a treatment plan together which is helping manage the pain and allowing me to be active again!”

“Jay, your treatments are the only thing that has worked. I’ve been dealing with this condition for a long time and I have been seriously scared I’d never feel better again. You’ve given me my life back. So worth it!”

“Of all the things I do for self care, yoga, dance, meditating, coming to see Jay is my favorite! I look forward to coming in to really drop into my body on a deeper level.”

“You’ve spoiled me! I can’t see any other practitioners. I’ve received so many sessions from some seriously talented practitioners. (Jay) You’re the best and now I can’t go anywhere else.”

“It’s hard to explain what happens during a session. It feels like Jay is having a secret conversation with my body I’m not aware of, then all of a sudden I’m let in on the conversation and realize I’m holding tension but don’t need to any more. A release happens and the conversation moves to the next topic.”

“I honestly don’t know how other people live without bodywork. Regular sessions are one of the greatest highlights of my life. It’s my spirit practice! I don’t feel grounded when I have to miss a session.”

“Every time I get together with all my girlfriends, you always come up. Someone in our group recently saw you and makes the rest of us jealous. So I was like, why be jealous when I could just book a session and here I am. The rest of them said they booked too. We all love you so much❤️”
