Nava's licensed acupuncturists assess your body from a traditional Chinese medical model and use a light needling technique to stimulate various points of the body, or acupoints, which can promotes the body's natural flow of energy and balance its meridians.
As a complementary therapy, Nava's acupuncture may be paired with other services at the Nava Center. To optimize your acupuncture sessions, we recommend you complete Nava's diagnostics, which our practitioners review collaboratively and use to develop your Custom Vitality Plan™.

For many patients trying acupuncture for the first time, it’s common to ask “does acupuncture hurt?” Typically, the answer is no, though some patients report feeling the needles as they are placed in the skin.
