We are excited to now be offering acupuncture at our Burlingame location of Project Zen. Acupuncture can be a very effective treatment for a wide variety of things including chronic muscle pain, pinched nerves, allergies, digestive disorders, depression, anxiety, and many more. It is a form of treatment used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that is based on the principle that there are energetic pathways or channels throughout the body that influence associated internal organs and structures. Energy from these pathways surface at various points on the body, identified as acupuncture points.
Project Zen acupuncturist, Lana Shipman, will customize a 60 minute session that will blend acupuncture with focused massage & bodywork. Each session will vary depending on the client’s individual needs. Lana is California Board Certified acupuncturist, herbalist and a Certified Massage Therapist.
