I am not a client of the Spa, however Dr Collins not only did my facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatment when he was here in West Palm Beach ... He took care my sciatic attack with just one single needle, he is an amazing Medicine man.
He is caring and loves his job.
Thank you Dr Collins
Acupuncture seeks to regulate the flow of Chi and blood within the body by either inserting fine, sterile needles at certain acupoints or warming certain acupoints using various methods. Chinese herbal medicines may be prescribed internally or applied externally.
As an important component of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture treats the full range of acute and chronic, traumatic, infectious and internally generated illness. Acupuncture is an excellent and effective choice for chronic diseases, all kinds of pain symptoms, muscle dysfunction, endocrine disorders, neurotic and mental diseases. Acupuncture also helps improve the immune system and build up body health.
Typically, acupuncture needles are fine and flexible. They are no bigger around that a human hair or a piece of fine thread. Deftly inserted into an acupoint by a skilled acupuncturist, the slender needle produces little or no sensation. It might best be described as resembling a mosquito bite. When the needle makes contact with Chi (the energy), most patients experience a slight tingling sensation. First-time patients are usually amazed at how comfortable they are during treatment.

Acupuncture Facelift Success Story
I recently had the Acupuncture Facelift at the Spa on Green Street. I received 9 treatments over the course of 3 weeks. After only 3 treatments, I could begin to feel a difference in my skin. It felt more subtle, the color was healthier – more of a natural glow - and my skin was not as dry. After each treatment, I was able to see and feel a difference. At the end of the treatments, the lines around my mouth – my parenthesis – were less deep and noticeable. My forehead was smoother and tighter. Application of moisturizers and makeup seemed to go on smoother, and was less prone to caking in any facial lines. Overall, the experience was a positive one with a positive outcome. I cannot say enough wonderful comments about Dr. Steve Collins and the staff at the spa. THANK YOU!!!
