Kohler Waters Spa Adds Acupuncture to List of Experiences

A destination for wellness, Kohler Waters Spa at The American Club resort in Kohler, Wisconsin continues to enhance its list of services with the addition of acupuncture treatments

KOHLER, Wis.—July 24, 2013— Kohler Waters Spa at The American Club resort in Kohler, Wisconsin announces today the addition of acupuncture services to the list of health and wellness experiences offered at the Forbes Five-Star spa – one of 37 entities in the world.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently among the most thoroughly researched, practiced and respected forms of complementary medicine available. Insertion of very thin, solid, stainless steel needles into select spots on the body creates certain triggers.

“Kohler Waters Spa revels in the ability to offer this time-honored trusted practice, alongside innovative spa experiences, enhancing the overall wellbeing and health of spagoers,” said Jean Kolb, Director of Wellness for Kohler Co.

Kohler Waters Spa partners with licensed acupuncturist Kari Webb of Plymouth, Wisconsin to offer acupuncture treatments. Webb is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, a practitioner who is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and has met the certification requirements for both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. She has more than nine years of professional practice in Wisconsin and Hawaii.

“Today’s acupuncture treatments offer a long list of benefits including pain reduction, stress and tension relief, increased energy levels and performance, stronger digestions, relief from bad habits and addictions, and a greater sense of overall health and well-being,” said Webb. “Acupuncture astonishingly can benefit many people for many specific reasons and for general wellness, relaxation and balance.”

Two service options are currently available on Wednesdays from 9am-6pm and Sundays from 9am-2pm at Kohler Waters Spa.
