Welcome to Maui Acupuncture with Wendy!
Wendy Ruppenthal L.Ac., LMT has been dedicated to helping her clients feel their best and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle since 2005. Based on Maui's North Shore, she specializes in Sports Acupuncture, massage and energy work.
Every session with Wendy is unique to the person, on that particular day. Sometimes a patient has a specific issue or injury that can be best treated through acupuncture or targeted, therapeutic massage. On another day, a full body relaxation massage with a little bit of reiki might be just the thing to unwind at the end of a stressful week. Every treatment is designed for the individual and addresses their unique circumstances in the most effective way possible.
Sports Acupuncture is the marriage of the ancient wisdom & methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern anatomy, assessment techniques and sports medicine science.
Every massage is tailored in style and pressure to each individual. Styles of massage techniques include deep tissue, lomi lomi, Swedish, hot stone pohaku, shiatsu, Thai, and backwalk.
