Meet Kristen Giancaterino LAc (Acupuncture)

acupuncture-imageIn Chinese Medicine ,we view the body as a series of meridians or channels. Qi or “life energy” and blood flows along these channels. When disease is present, these channels are “blocked” or “stuck.” This leads to stagnant energy, blocked organ function, and disease. Maintaining the flow of Qi is the best way to maintain your health and well being. Acupuncture achieves this with fine, hair-like needles. Patients who seek out my services are not the ones looking for a quick fix.

They understand that maintaining health requires work, weekly treatments, and are willing to make the necessary changes in their lives for a better quality of life. Rest assured you are in good hands and will be treated with care and the utmost
