Restorative Yoga Class

My wife, Elizabeth Brodhead, is teaching a restorative yoga and pranayama class at Ganesha’s Place.  She offers this class every Friday morning from 10-11:30am.

This is a great opportunity to learn restorative yoga poses and to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the importance of proper breathing (pranayama).


New Year, New LOWER Rates!


Eight Cranes Acupuncture has decided to change our service rates.  We will no longer be offering the 10% discount to select groups. Instead, we will be lowering our rates for all individuals providing significant savings for everyone!

In the past, the 10% discount would have brought the first treatment cost down from $140 to $126 and subsequent treatments from $80 to $72.  Now, with our new lower rates, first office visits for new patients will be $120 and subsequent treatments for established patients will be $70.  We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
