Dr Christine Hicks, NMD, has been in the alternative and complementary medicine field for 20 years, working as a Massage Therapist, Massage Teacher, and Naturopathic Doctor. Additionally she has worked in sports medicines, physical therapy and pain management.
Acussage is Dr Hicks’ unique combined system of acupuncture and focused massage therapy, for acute or chronic pain, stress reduction, and overall wellness. By combining the two therapies in a continuous treatment, the patient typically receives a deeper relaxation, and enhanced Qi activation, making each therapy more effective with longer lasting results. Dr Hicks may include guided relaxation during the treatment. Aromatherapy may be requested for an additional fee. Appointment times are 45 min, 60 min, or 75 min. An initial evaluation intake for first time patients adds an additional 15 minutes, to cover health history and concerns.
