Acupuncture and gentle alternative “chiropractic” care for the people.
Acupuncture and Core Alignment Therapy (a gentle alternative to chiropractic care) are now accessible to all community members during clinic days at Wellspring Vitality. The clinic model allows lower prices by streamlining our providers time by focusing on one therapeutic offering along with the providers discounting their practice as a gift to the community.
Clinic days are biweekly. The first clinic day is October 20th with Dr. Jeffrey Turre.
Core Alignment Therapy will be available starting November 3rd from Liz Evans of HandsOn Bodyworks.

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting small needles into the body according to meridians and specific points on the body found in Chinese Medicine. This ancient healing practice has been studied extensively and so far has been proven to be an effective treatment alone or alongside conventional therapies. According to the National Health Institute acupuncture is an effective therapy for:
- Nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer chemotherapy
- Dental pain after surgery
- Menstrual cramps
- Tennis elbow
- Myofascial pain
- Low back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- It may also help with stroke rehabilitation.
There are many other uses for acupuncture that have not yet been proven in a study but individuals have experienced results including gastro-intestinal issues, hormonal difficulties, and neurological disorders to name a few.
