About Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Using a meridian mapping system, acupuncture utilizes the harmonious flow of qi, blood and bodily fluids to assist in healing and facilitate proper functioning of organs. Your practitioner will take into account your past health history, pulse and tongue qualities. By inserting fine, disposable needles into specific points along the body’s energetic pathways, or “meridians,” your practitioner will regulate the flow of qi, blood, and bodily fluids. Acupuncture needles are so thin that patients rarely feel them when they are inserted.

  3. Providers and clients will wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering and before leaving the treatment room.
  4. ALL linens after every client will be placed in a separate bin to be laundered.
  5. Providers will use oxivir to thoroughly disinfect all surfaces and touch points in the treatment rooms.

On my 30th birthday I decided to change my health trajectory by joining Galter's Fundamental Fitness program. The personal trainers taught me a holistic approach to health (it's not all about the sweat!), the dietician worked with me to find a non-punitive approach to nutrition, and the massage therapist introduced me to better post-workout care. Now, each time I come to Galter as a member I feel healthier, stronger, part of a positive community and full of life." – Tasha
