HEALING ARTS

Release and unwind while experiencing a therapeutic massage, acupuncture session, or other holistic health treatment in one of our private healing rooms. We believe using a whole body approach facilitates the body to help heal itself. These techniques are a safe and effective way to harmonize the body and mind.

All of the practitioners who offer their healing services at Balance Bethlehem manage their own schedules.  To book appointments, please contact them directly through the information contained in their bios below.
