Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive treatment method to help millions of people become and stay well. Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.

Acupuncture is a therapy that uses the insertion of tiny thread-like needles to specific points on the body along meridians (energy channels of the body) that cross the body. As long as the energy flows freely through these pathways, health is maintained. When the flow of energy is disturbed for any reason, there is disruption in health, resulting in pain or illness. By stimulating appropriate acupuncture points along these meridians, the energy is regulated, and health is restored.

Most people are afraid of trying acupuncture due to the fear or thought of needles! This video will show how little the needles are and how it is not what we think. We encourage you to try acupuncture and not let this fear stop you from trying such an amazing form of natural medicine.

Most think acupuncture is only good for pain. Although acupuncture is used often for pain, it is also excellent for many other conditions. Dr. Laura treats a large array of conditions on a daily basis. So, consider acupuncture for your pain and any other health concern you are having!!!

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is your healthy option for looking and feeling younger. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a healthy option for cosmetic improvements. It is the true "anti-aging medicine". Through the procedure is not well known or publicized in the United States, it has been used for centuries in China by Emperors and the wealthy. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a relatively non-invasive procedures that actually improves your health.

The obvious benefits include having softer, firmer skin, reduction of deeper wrinkles, possible elimination of finer wrinkles, and improvements of jowl lines. Although not visually as dramatic as a surgical procedure, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture actually has a much more dramatic overall effect. Besides the obvious visual changes, patients have reported improved digestion, better quality sleep, reduction of hot flashes, elimination of mild depression and anxiety, improved energy, and an overall sense of well-being. Patients leave not only looking younger but feeling younger and healthier. It is fair to say that this is the only cosmetic procedure that actually improves the health of the patient.

From Western medicine standpoint, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture works because the needles may cause micro-traumas in the skin to which the body can respond by increasing blood flow and the production of collagen and elastin for wound healing. The needling, which is done at the level of the dermis, may also stimulate neurotransmitter production. From the Chinese Medicine perspective, qi and blood are being brought to the face, qi is being lifted, and the body's energetic systems are being put into balance. This is why the wonderful side effects occur. The procedure is very low risk because the needling is so superficial; occasionally bruising occurs. 

  • 2 Treatments a week for 5 weeks
  • Important because the skin (dermis) has to be constantly stimulated to stimulate collagen
  • Treats the skin and internal causes of aging
  • Before and after pictures will be taken
  • Results can be from subtle to dramatic
  • Results may last 2-5 years with monthly maintenance. Once result aren't lasting, it is time for another series of 10

Massage Therapy

Pre-Natal Massage

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage - to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.


Swedish techniques utilize long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart. There are six basic strokes: effleurage (French meaning: 'to skim over'), petrissage (French meaning: 'to knead'), friction, tapotement, compression, and vibration.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the practitioner can access deeper layers of the soft tissue.


This is the use of natural or “essential” oils extracted from all parts of plants and flowers and used to enhance the all-around well – being of the body. Combining aromas with massage greatly increases relaxation, helping connect the body and mind and add a more therapeutic effect.


It is a unique method of using compression massage on the reflex points of the hands and feet to stimulate the movement of energy and nerve supply to the different body systems. It assists in the treatment of symptoms from many ailments, including emotional stress and general tension, traumas such as injury or surgery, specific feet disorders such as plantar fasciitis, and lymphatic congestion.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

This is a very gentle, relaxing, light touch massage. It is a specific, 50 min massage routine over the entire lymphatic system to enhance the flow, detoxing the body, and clearing any back up in the lymphatic system. It is used to assist in reducing swelling in limbs, lymphatic collection around scars from surgeries (mastectomies or the removal of lymph nodes), to sooth sore muscles, smooth cellulite and many other situations. (2-3 sessions a week for at least 2 weeks to start seeing results)

Fascia Blasting

Fascia is the connective tissue that lies beneath the skin and above the fat layers. When fascia gets tight (due to tight muscles, lack of hydration, cellulite, age etc.) it creates a dimpling effect resulting in dents, dimples, or wrinkles. Receiving a treatment allows skin to look smoother, increase blood flow, increase muscle function and range of motion, and relieve aches and pains. A session can range from a full body to the focus on a specific area or issue.

Deep Tissue Hot Stone with Aroma Therapy

This massage is a bit different from your typical light pressure-relaxing massage. We use the hot stones to actually massage at the level of pressure you are comfortable with in order to get the maximum benefit from both the heat and massage. Although relaxing in itself, you will feel that you also received a deep tissue massage where your muscles were worked on, not just rubbed with hot stones.

Organic Manicures & Pedicures

Enjoy pampering yourself with a manicure & pedicure without the harsh smells, fumes and avoid being exposed to toxins on your skin and nails. 

What makes it organic? 

All the products used are organic and free of damaging chemical including our lotion, nail polish remover, essential oils and scrubs.

We are exceptionally proud to carry Poofy nail polish because they offer a large variety of beautiful colors which are all FREE of the major toxins found in conventional polishes such as formaldehyde, toluene, DBP (phthalates), formaldehyde resin, TPHP, camphor, xylene, parabens, fragrances, silicones, acetone, mineral oils, propylene glycol, ethanolamine, and animal ingredients.

Although nail polish can never be completely natural because it still contains solvents, modern polishes are full of toxins and you breathe them in, as well as absorb them through your skin every time you paint your nails. This is significantly worse if you have your nails done at a salon. POOFY POLISH does NOT have any of the major toxins! The major toxins found in nail polish are:

Toluene- A human reproductive toxin.

Formaldehyde- A known carcinogen, plus they pickle dead bodies in it. YUCK!

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)- Known to cause infertility, uterine cancer, testicular cancer & fetal defects just to name a few!

Camphor - Poisonous & can cause liver damage.

Propylene glycol- antifreeze, used to de-ice airplanes

Fragrance- can contain thousands of untested chemicals

Silicones- hormone disruptor

Parabens- estrogen mimicker

Ethanolamine- organ system & reproductive toxicity

Mineral oil- made of petroleum

Acetone- irritant

Xylene- an ancient ingredient found in polishes – damages the central nervous system.
