Acupuncture, Massage Therapy & Health Coaching
Acupuncture, an essential part of Eastern Medicine, is approved by the World Health Organization to treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms. It is a great complement to Western Medicine. Best results are achieved by those clients who use both medical systems wisely. As such, Centered Health Healing Arts (CHHA) encourages integrated medicine and provides professional holistic healthcare services.

The treatment has been painless and very very relaxing. I continue with treatments to solve other skeletal issues and as a form of meditation and relaxation.
After my first session I felt clear headed and energized and I noticed results each time I saw her. She is truly all about understanding in treating your entire self and well being.
Andrea outlined the areas where she felt I could benefit from a course of acupuncture and she immediately initiated treatment which was neither painful nor unpleasant. Surprisingly it was just the opposite, resulting in an experience which left me feeling relaxed and almost completely pain-free. I thank Andrea for her introduction to the world of Acupuncture and I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
I had a systemic bacterial infection that antibiotics were not curing. My body was exhausted and that exhaustion was causing depression. Andrea, through acupuncture and a supplement, cured me! I feel balanced, have more energy, and no longer have an infection. In addition, she treats my children and keeps my entire family in good health.
I would absolutely recommend acupuncture to a friend. I was surprised with how comfortable I was during the first visit. I am also shocked at how much better I feel in all areas. I sleep better, have more energy and the original pain has diminished significantly. I have found Andrea’s personality and demeanor to be professional and refreshing! I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Andrea is the best! I started seeing her based on a recommendation from a friend because I wanted to get pregnant. I am now 6 months pregnant and still seeing Andrea on a weekly basis. She is a caring person who wants the best for her patients.
Andrea is a wonderful and highly skilled acupuncturist. She has helped me tremendously with lower back and leg pain from a failed spinal fusion. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a pleasure to chat with. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking effective acupuncture.
My first session literally changed my life. I wanted an alternative medicine experience for my pain, and I never thought one treatment would help, but it did. Tremendously! There are so many additional benefits to the pain relief, that I will continue treatments. Andrea extremely knowledgeable, gentle, calming and truly amazing at what she does!
Andrea is a gifted and wonderful healer. Her knowledge and compassion instantly put you at ease when you see her. She answers any question you may have with the utmost patience and understanding. I know i will feel better after each session with her. She has helped me tremendously with my carpal tunnel pain. After my very first session i felt relief. I highly highly recommend Andrea.
I started having acupuncture somewhere else for back/neck pain and though it helped, I wasn't happy with the environment. Thankfully I found Andrea! She's kind, sweet, gentle, knowledgeable and amazing. Her technique is different in a good way and she introduced essential oils and cupping to my treatments. I've even used her facial oil which is fantastic. I even got my husband to come and she's helped him with sleeping and energy. We're both hooked and will be long term patients because I don't think there's anything acupuncture won't help fix.
