Two core health-giving modalities
Acupuncture & Nutrition
Acupuncture is new for most peopleAlthough acupuncture has been around for over two millennia, acupuncture is a new experience for most people. At Essential Balance, we describe every step involved in acupuncture, from explaining how our “10 Questions” on your first visit help us to evaluate what is really going on inside of you, to clarifying the purpose each inserted needle performs.
We do not just insert needles; instead, we believe in educating our clients on how acupuncture is helping them. At Essential Balance, we go way beyond traditional acupuncture, as we work to transform the way clients recover from pain, stress and engage in beauty treatments. Our ambition is to inspire acupuncture into the 21st century attitude.
Nutrition is our fuelWe all do it, every day – we eat. At Essential Balance, we are passionate about real food and real nourishment. We take pride in supporting our clients as they transition from a diet that does not serve their health goals. With inspiration, email support and food workshops, we educate and motivate our clients to make life-changing upgrades to their daily food.
We all have time constraints, cuisine biases, and palate preferences; regardless of where and how you are feeding yourself, we can teach you how to upgrade your nutrition to improve your vitality.
We are wellness and balance
Essential Balance is more than just health, more than the feeling of relief and more than the invigoration of beauty.
It’s a state of well-being and a state of balance.
We're trained in multiple holistic healing modalities
