ACUPUNCTURE, elevated.

The art of acupuncture is incredibly important to our story because it’s how Pellegrino Healing Center got its start. Founder and owner Christine Pellegrino, M.S., L.Ac., started the center due to her own private acupuncture practice being in such high demand. To accommodate the growing need of acupuncture and other healing services in the community, she brought on more practitioners and expanded the offerings and amenities.

 

A core service, acupuncture continues to deliver successful and life-changing results to our patients.

Unlock your body's healing potential.

Your body knows how to heal itself. Sometimes it just needs some guidance to remember how, and that is where acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture is a healing technique that has been utilized for thousands of years, originating in ancient China. Practitioners stimulate specific points in the body through the insertion of needles to alleviate symptoms. 

 

Our acupuncturists use a unique Japanese style of acupuncture designed by world-renowned Master, Kiiko Matsumoto, in combination with Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Element, Trigger Point Acupuncture, and Electroacupuncture.

We go above and beyond...

Acupuncture at Pellegrino Healing Center is really something special. Our treatments last for approximately 60-minutes, (sometimes a bit shorter and sometimes a bit longer, depending on what your practitioner feels is clinically indicated.

Additional, complimentary healing tools.

INCLUDED WITH ALL ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS:

Amethyst Crystal Biomat

The BioMat is an FDA approved medical device that combines infrared light, negative ion technology, and the healing properties of Amethyst crystal to deliver its many benefits such as arthritis relief, skin vitalization, improved circulation, increased tissue oxygen, and alleviation of pain. The therapeutic components of the BioMat balance and stabilize the bodies systems and strengthen the body's own self-healing power.

AMETHYST CRYSTALS cover the entire surface of the BioMat and deliver both infrared and negative ions naturally. Here, amethyst crystal is not only used to focus the FIR energy of the BioMat but also helps to calm and protect the mind and nervous system.

Infratonic Therapy

Infratonic therapy accelerates muscle cell healing and reduces inflammation. Utilizing sound waves to penetrate deep into frenzied cells, Infratonic therapy returns cells to their calm, normal state so they can begin their natural healing protocols towards long-term relief. Infratonic therapy promotes healing and relief for any kind of injury or pain in tissues, muscles, and joints-from acute injuries to chronic spasms, traumatic accidents to menstrual cramps, and everything in between.
