Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of medicine that is over 5000 years old. Within the body is a network of energetic channels through which life energy or chi intelligently flows. When these channels are obstructed, stress, pain, and disease can occur.
Acupuncture is one component of Oriental medicine which originated from ancient Chinese medicine and Ayurveda from India. One of the main objectives of Oriental medicine is to balance the body’s energy or “life force” or “prana,” which is acupuncture’s primary goal.
Acupuncture removes obstructions and directs the natural flow of intelligent chi, blood and oxygen to where it is most needed, restoring the body, mind and spirit to its natural vital and healthy state. Jonathan practices a variety of style of acupuncture such as Classical 5 Element, Traditional Chinese Medicine and The Balance Method.

Community Acupuncture each Monday afternoon.
With Community Acupuncture, treatments are given together with other patients in a group setting instead of the traditional, private, one-on-one session. Those with more complicated physical or emotional cases require undergoing a private consultation and acupuncture session prior to participating in the Community Acupuncture sessions.
Four to eight people can be seen together at one time. Tables and foam mats are used. Feel free to bring a pillow, blanket or yoga mat if you would like!
Benefits of Community Acupuncture:
-Less cost per treatment.
-When we are in the “healing zone” with others it is very powerful. It is similar to the benefits of meditating with others; when we do, we often go even deeper into the meditative experience. Acupuncture is similar in that it is also a very meditative and healing experience. Entering into the “healing zone” can enhance the effectiveness of a treatment.
-Community Acupuncture offers a sense of community and openness with others.A great way to create greater health and balance and resolve health issues.
A discussion with first time patients is necessary to determine if an initial individual consultation is necessary before participating in Community Acupuncture. Please contact me to discuss your unique situation.
