As a Five Element Acupuncturist, Mwangaza helps her clients create ease where there was dis-ease, and free flow of chi (energy) where there was stuckness.  She partners with her clients to identify how they can maintain that free flow in the face of the challenges of life. Mwangaza addresses pain conditions, weight loss, emotional issues, and digestive problems, to name a few. Through Acupuncture, she has witnessed in her clients and in her own experience, a healing process that is personal, powerful and often beyond words.
