community acupuncture

Experience the healing power of acupuncture in a shared restorative experience.

Acupuncture is a 4,000 year old system of medicine used to treat illness, relieve pain and stress, support well-being and bring emotional balance.

Black Mountain Yoga offers affordable, high-quality acupuncture in an open relaxed setting.

You will receive individualized treatment in a room with others, which raises the Qi (life force energy) dynamic and healing is enhanced, with friends and family able to come together.

Flow of your session

At your appointment time you will enter the yoga studio and find a yoga mat with props set up for your comfort. Our acupuncturist, Anisha Fraser, will briefly discuss your health concerns and requests for treatment. You do NOT need to undress (you only need to roll your sleeves up to your elbows and your pants up to your knees).

Once the needles are in you’ll have an extended 30-40 minutes of relaxation with soft background music to enhance the experience. Please allow 1 hour for each session.

For acupuncture to be most effective in healing specific health concerns, patients do need to receive it regularly.

For us, yoga is more than a series of postures.

Martia’s class is, without a doubt, one of the best things in my life! Studio is home, the staff are family, and the clientele are immediately my friends just by virtue of the fact that you provide such a welcoming, non judgmental, all encompassing practice.
