What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China over 5,000 years ago making it one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It is based on the belief that health is determined by a balanced flow of Qi, the vital life energy present in all living organisms. According to acupuncture theory, Qi is circulated in the body along fourteen energy pathways, called meridians, each linked to specific internal organs and organ systems.

There are over one thousand acupoints within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of Qi. When special fine needles are inserted into these acupoints (just under the skin), they help correct and rebalance the flow of energy and consequently restore health. This is painless and without side effects. Patients find the treatments very enjoyable, deeply relaxing and report looking forward to receiving them.

The World Health Organization recognizes over 43 conditions that can be treated with Acupuncture including:

Gastrointestinal Disorders: ulcers, chronic diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite, gastritis, nausea.

Urogenital Disorders: stress incontinence, urinary tract infection, sexual dysfunction.

Gynecological Disorders: irregular, heavy or painful menstruation, infertility in women and men, PMS.

Respiratory Disorders: emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, bronchitis.

Disorders of Bones, Muscles, Joints and Nervous System: arthritis, migrane headaches, Insomnia, dizziness, low back, neck, hip, knee and shoulder pain.

Circulatory Disorders: high blood pressure, angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis, anemia.

Emotional and Psychological Disorders: stress, depression, anxiety. Addictions: alcohol, nicotine, and drugs.

Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders Supportive Therapy: weight loss, decreased energy and immunity, cancer and other chronic and painful debilitating disorders.

Holistic performance enhancement
Hi all, I was a competitor at the World Paddleboard champs 2015 held at Sayulita in May. I needed some shoulder and back area relaxation as I was racing in 2 days. Michael not only used his massage expertise to relieve my tight muscles, he provided some information on stretching techniques to prevent the tightness. On top of this, he gave me mental coping strategies for the upcoming race such as goal setting and positive visualisation.
Highly knowledgable professional, using a great balance of sports science and eastern philosophy-my performance in the competition exceeded my expectations! Thanks Michael:)

Michael is the best healer I have ever experienced
I have been receiving treatments from Michael for the past seven years. He works on both my wife and myself at least a couple of times each month (when we can get into his schedule.) His ability to comprehend and understand exactly what causes the pain along with his extensive knowledge of the human body are incredible. Michael takes the time to get to know his patients and then works with them until they are pain-free. No exceptions!

I highly recommend Michael's acupuncture and massage skills to any Sayulita local or visitor looking for anything from a body tune-up to alleviating chronic pain.

You will not be disappointed. Michael will heal you!

Sciatica pain gone
Last Spring 2 very intense combination acupuncture and massage relieved my Sciatica pain for a couple of months. I found that I was getting a better stretch in my lower back and was able to start really loosing up. Life is good here in Sayulita and with Michael's holistic approach I can enjoy my stays here more completely.

I visited Michael on the last day of my vacation in Sayulita and honestly had never experienced a massage or acupuncture, so I was actually a bit nervous at not knowing what to expect. Michael was amazing however in walking me through every detail of what was happening and took great care and skill to make me feel very comfortable. The atmosphere was just what I was hoping for - peaceful and relaxing! And I walked away from my session feeling GREAT - the most relaxed I have ever been. It was also a great time refocusing on meditating on my life - looking inward. I felt like I was floating! I wish I could come back every week or have Michael here in Seattle! My next vacation back will DEFINITELY include a trip or two to see Michael! He is an amazing asset to the community there in Sayulita and I would highly recommend his acupuncture/massage to anyone who is interested in a more holistic way of health!

I am not a very social media type person, but I really had to write a review. Over my life, I have had just about every type of therapy, including acupuncture. I never really "got it" nor believed too much in it because I never saw immediate results (that is the kind of person I am). I have (had) several ailments, and the most recent being a hip/femur fracture. I am in my early 40's, so I got right up and continued on with life doing all of my normal activities, but my hip really has bothered me, so I had a random thought- "I should see Michael". I did, and I can honestly say, I saw an IMMEDIATE result- way beyond my expectation. The annoying pain is gone, I am getting full movement, and feeling better than I have in 20 years. Like I said, I was not that total believer, but he has a technique that I have never seen before, and he helped make me feel normal again!
Luckily I live here and can continue treatment!!!

Insightful healer and acupuncturist! I wish Michael lived near me.
I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who lives in Sayulita or is visiting on vacation. I had two visits with Michael when I visited Sayulita last week. I was so grateful to get an appointment with him since I had sprained my ankle and I had a yoga retreat all week. He helped my ankle heal and helped me feel more balanced in my body and spirit through his fusion of acupuncture and other healing modalities. He is a great listener and thoughtful practitioner who cares deeply for his patients.

Michael is gifted in his practice. For the past four years, I have seen an amazing Chinese acupuncturist where I live in Seattle. I preferred Michael's approach to acupuncture and the results where immediately noticable. I had such a great experience, that I also attended one of Michael's workshops and he squeezed me in for another acupuncture session before I left.

I can't speak highly enough about his practice. I left Sayulita with new found mobility along with many insights about myself, my potential, and how energy flows in my body. I felt more connected to myself and those around me through Michael's work as a practitioner and in the community workshop he taught about consciousness awareness.

Now I'm back in Seattle and I wish I had access to an acupuncturist and healer like Michael. If you're ever in Sayulita, I would highly recommend trying to get an appointment with Michael. You won't be disappointed. He came highly recommended to me by my yoga instructor who taught the retreat. Everyone at thw yoga retreat who had an appointment with Michael the previous year had nothing but rave reviews to share. I now know why. Thanks again, Michael!

Sayulita is lucky to have Michael Abramson
After a trip to the urgent care for extreme pain in my shoulder and sub-scapula, Michael squeezed me into his busy schedule. He saved me from an agonizing week in Sayulita by using a combination of acupuncture and deep-tissue massage. Michael really listened and took the time to figure out how best to treat my injury. He also has a fantastic outlook on healing and maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Thank you Michael!

A truly gifted practitioner who offers so much more than a conventional treatment
I have been travelling around the world for the past 5 months and was in need of some healing to replenish my energy and boost my vitality. In the past I have attended regular acupuncture therapy to maintain both my physical and emotional health and spiritual wellbeing and knew at this time I needed to find someone special for a treatment. The first day I was in Sayulita I came across Michael's shop and made a mental note of his contact details. I googled him on the internet to find out about his services and was lucky enough to get an appointment with him the next day. If you are also fortunate enough to also get an appointment with this exceptional practitioner you will be blessed.
Michael is not only highly skilled in his craft but offers so much more than the conventional acupuncture, massage and healing treatment. From the time you begin your session until the end he is totally focused on you as a person and works with you to identify what it is you require for your individual treatment. He is indeed highly intuitive and applies a holistic and very personal approach when dealing with you. At no time are you made to feel like 'just another client' or that he is pushed for time. At the end of my session I felt totally reenergised, renewed, relaxed and in sync with my surroundings. If you are in Sayulita, treat yourself and spend some time with Michael you will not regret this totally wonderful experience with this very unique and special individual.

Wonderful experience
Iíve had two opportunities to work with Michael in his beautiful palapa studio. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about the healing arts and shares his wisdom generously. His acupuncture and massage was very effective at relieving built up or blocked energy, aligning muscles and improving my overall state of being. The best part - it was enjoyable, relaxing and pain relieving while also being therapeutic. I would definitely recommend a treatment from Michael while youíre in Sayulita.
