We are very pleased to announce that Scott Davis will be offering community acupuncture starting May 1st.
Community acupuncture is an effective, economical and traditional form of treatment, which utilizes the healing power of communal group energy to enhance the effect of the acupuncture.
Not unlike a group restorative class, participants are fully clothed and find a comfortable position to rest in while the acupuncture is performed. In addition, another great benefit is that each person can stay for as long as is needed to rest and receive the full effect from the treatment. Whether you stay for 20 minutes or an hour, leave feeling balanced, refreshed and recalibrated.
It is offered on Fridays starting May 1st from 2:30-5:30 pm. To book an appointment you can contact the front desk, call 416.515.8885, or email@example.com. You can also book online. Space is limited so book your appointment today!
