Isn't it about time
to improve your health & quality of life?
Lauren Berendt, L.Ac. is dedicated to treating her patients from a kind and compassionate place.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's natural internal resources. Our bodies already have natural endorphins, neurotransmitters, pain relieving substances, hormones, immune system and Acupuncture helps by improving blood circulation and brain regulatory centers! Lauren will choose Acupuncture points to enhance your body's internal resources so you have the greatest ability to balance naturally.

The needles used by Lauren are hair thin, filiform (not hollow), sterile, single use needles. They are as thin as a cat's whisker and are disposed of after one use. There are numerous benefits of Acupuncture and virtually no negative side effects.

Within the scope of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Lauren may use cupping or guasha techniques if appropriate. Cupping creates a vacuum on the skin to dispel stagnation. Guasha also increases skin surface micro circulation.
Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and a Tui Na (Chinese bodywork) certificate from the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2012. I am very blessed in that I do what I love for a living. I deeply enjoy connecting and getting to know everyone I work with; I always treat my patients as the individual they are. People describe me with a compassionate and kind disposition which my patients appreciate.
