Melissa Lee ND

Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy that has originated more than 2000 years ago. Over time, the therapy has been refined, clinically studied and extensive evidence based research has proven its efficacy in the treatment of multiple conditions.

Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Physiologically, acupuncture boosts immune function, increases peripheral circulation, improves skin and blood flow, and regulates the autonomic nervous system, digestive system and reproductive system.

Melissa uses hair thin needles to insert at specific points in the body. These needles are specifically designed for a smooth painless insertion. During the treatment she gently stimulates each needle to trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Before you come for your treatment, it is recommended that right before the treatment do not eat a heavy meal, nor be famished. After the treatment, take it easy and ensure you are hydrated and avoid alcohol, caffeine and excessive/intense exercise afterwards.
