FAST offers full body acupuncture as a complimentary therapy to participants of FAST.

When yin and yang are in harmony a state of good health is maintained. When yin and yang are not in a relative balance Qi (Qi maybe considered to be the body's vital energy) cannot flow smoothly and so it becomes blocked, stagnant or weakened, resulting in illness, which can manifest as both physical and emotional problems.

Each acupoint acts as a gateway to the meridian so that the practitioner can stimulate the body's own healing process to restore its natural balance. Since acupuncture and tuina encourage natural healing processes, there are virtually no side effects making them extremely safe and effective.

Acupuncture appointments are available on Wednesdays from 2:00pm to 7:00pm

Holistic therapies are not stand alone supports but are offered to participants as part of an overall continuum of care
