Integrative Treatment

Acupuncture at NESCA

Acupuncture is a safe and effective healing modality that aims to restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. When a person is perfectly in balance, there are no adverse symptoms causing pain or discomfort anywhere in the body. Signs of imbalance can show up differently in everyone. Some common clues that things aren’t functioning quite right are when people begin to develop symptoms of anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, digestive difficulties, mood changes, fatigue, common colds, allergies, and headaches.

Acupuncture dates back thousands of years and is part of a comprehensive system of medicine that developed in China. It works to clear imbalances or blockages in the body, therefore allowing the body to develop the means to heal itself. It is a powerful technique that gets to the root of the issue. By doing this, it not only clears current symptoms, but also helps to prevent future symptoms and illness from arising.

The way that acupuncture works to create health and wellness makes it particularly beneficial for children and adolescents. Acupuncture is most effective when symptoms are caught early or before they even begin; it is a wonderful preventative medicine and because children are still in the processes of developing, they are fantastic candidates for acupuncture.

Acupuncture with Holly Pelletier, L.Ac.

Acupuncture is not limited to just children at NESCA. Although Holly loves working with kids, she believes adults need acupuncture too. Acupuncture has an almost immediate relaxing and calming effect, and most people begin to see positive changes that same day. Holly has a very gentle technique and has furthered her studies in pediatric and non-insertive (where no needles are actually used) styles of acupuncture. Her treatments are very focused and thorough, and she creates a comfortable atmosphere for both children and adults.
