Acupuncture at Kindness Yoga is a deeply relaxing and powerful healing modality that combines the highest quality care with our commitment to affordability.

Acupuncture is an ancient art that continues to be widely practiced in modern times for one simple reason – it works. Receiving regular treatments – which are delivered by stimulating blood flow via energetic points on the skin with tiny needles – enhances general health and well-being, relieves pain, and supports the treatment of a wide variety of conditions.

The community acupuncture model is a groundbreaking concept that makes the healing power of acupuncture more financially comfortable for everyone. You’ll receive treatments in a serene environment alongside fellow community members, which is said to increase the power of each treatment for a fraction of the cost.

Our Acupuncturists

Shannon Stevens

Shannon Stevens

Shannon began her journey in alternative health care 15 years ago through the need to heal herself. Unsatisfied with the care given her in conventional western medicine, she tried acupuncture and was immediately enthused. Devotion to the Traditional Chinese Medical system given her in one of the country’s leading clinics not only put her on the road to health, but offered an insight into an alternative view of what it means to be healthy. Fueled by her passion for the alternative road to health, Shannon earned her Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012 then added an apprenticeship in sports medicine acupuncture in 2014. When working with patients, Shannon’s approach is rooted in her personal experience and driven by compassion for the unique condition in every individual.
