“We’re helping the body heal itself & getting our bodies out of their own way.” ~ Andrew Maloney
What Acupuncture is Good for:
“I don’t believe it’s necessary to create a lot of pain to create a lot of healing.” ~ Andrew Maloney
“The human body is an amazing thing. But there are points where our bodies do too much or overreact and that’s a great example for when Chinese Medicine can step in.” ~ Andrew Maloney
