A Holistic Approach to Health
Welcome to South Bend Acupuncture, conveniently located in Beyond Zen Studio near Heritage Square in Granger, IN. Our holistic approach to health, is one that combines mind and body, including exercise, diet, and meditation, focusing on improving the overall well-being of the patient, in the effort to treat not only the specific physical symptoms of disease, but also the root cause, and the psychological, social and spiritual aspects of health and illness. Our mission is to help our patients accomplish their health and wellbeing goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.
We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about receiving treatment, so we created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. By combining the latest technology with traditional Chinese medicine techniques, we give our patients the best care in town.
