“I said ‘I’m already through,’” Quinn said with a chuckle. “She was surprised how things went.”
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years by the Chinese to relieve pain and is becoming more recognized in the West as a way to ease pain.
“It seems so simple that a few strategically placed needles can fix so many problems,” Quinn said. “Pain relief is what 85 percent of clients come here for but it can also help in relieving digestive issues, anxiety, depression and even side effects from cancer treatment such as chemotherapy.
“I try and get to the root of the problem rather than treating the symptoms and allow the body to heal itself, which it can do,” Quinn said.'
Deep tissue massage therapist Tammy Cox comes in on Friday and does massages, which is where Quinn actually got her start. After being a massage therapist for a time, her hands began to bother her, so she decided to go into acupuncture.
Cox, who has been in the business for 19 years, hopes to expand her business as time goes on, Quinn said.
Quinn takes appointments Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. but is willing to early or late depending on her clients’ needs. For more information, give Quinn a call at 817-341-7171
