K. Murray Decio, MSOM, LAc, NCCAOM
Experience a community acupuncture (group setting) session. The acupuncturist will ask you a few questions, check your pulse, and answer any questions you may have before starting. No need to undress; just remove shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. Don’t worry; this is very introductory and gentle.
