 Your acupuncture session will be in a large, peaceful, private room. Using traditional five element acupuncture, she focuses on identifying your blocks, weaknesses and root imbalances. In addition to treating the symptoms of your bad back, anxiety or pain she gets to the root of them, so they won't return. Elyse does this by working to restore your whole body's healthy, natural equilibrium. This includes balancing emotions or organs that are out of balance. This holistic approach using acupuncture can be used to treat most western diseases, either to help cure them or alleviate symptoms and side effects from prescribed drugs.

Acupuncture is often effective with a wide range of complaints, including chronic fatigue, depression, back pain, joint pain, infertility, asthma, addictions, and stress. Acupuncture is also helpful for many chronic illnesses and health concerns that have no clear origin or cause.
