Located in Somerville’s bustling Davis Square, Great Way Wellness Center is an oasis of calm and healing. Established in 2005, we offer traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine, therapeutic massage and private yoga instruction.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), consisting of acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, is an ancient healing system with the strength to address complex 21st-century illness. It is based on the idea that Qi (vital energy) flows through the body, regulating health and well-being. TCM returns the body to health by correcting energetic imbalances that result from internal and external causes.
TCM understands that states of health and disease are unique to each person, and thus uses an individual approach to treating each person and each disease. With this individual approach, TCM can treat a wide variety of conditions effectively and safely. It is great at relieving all types of pain, but it can address many different health problems as well.
Your first visit with an acupuncturist/herbalist will consist of a comprehensive intake that explores your health from many different angles. After uncovering the root of your problem, the acupuncturist inserts sterile, hair-thin, single-use needles into various places throughout the body to resolve imbalances and restore health. Your first session will last about 1.5 hours, with follow-ups lasting about 1 hour.
