Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese Acupuncture: treatments are a collaborative effort between Christine and her patients. During the treatment points will be chosen based off of their ability to change symptoms while the patient is on the table. 
Trigger Point Acupuncture: a physical treatment which releases muscles out of their spasmed state. Developed by Dr. Janet Travell, President John F.
