Modern Acupuncture Opens at Ygnacio Plaza – My First Acupuncture Experience


Ygnacio Plaza, Walnut Creek

I was checking out Sports Basement at Ygnacio Plaza in Walnut Creek recently when I realized that Modern Acupuncture opened. Find out more about their services here.

I had never tried acupuncture before but since they just opened I was able to try a free 30 minute session. The communal area in back has numerous reclining, heated massage chairs separated by curtains for semi-privacy. It’s quiet with TV screens showing nature scenes with soft music playing in the background. You take your shoes and socks off sitting or lying on the chair and wait for the acupuncturist to come where she asks about problem areas. I mentioned my back and stress and eventually she applied several needles to my hands, feet and head in particular areas to help with these problem areas. Then she left for 20 minutes while I tried to relax with needles sticking out of me. Eventually I got used to it and she came back to remove the needles. Although it’s not like a massage where I get instant relief, I did feel noticeably better later on which pleasantly surprised me. Not sure if this is a placebo affect but I actually feel like it worked better than a massage. If you’re thinking about trying it out I recommend checking this place out!

Encore Theatrical Supply Company Closes in Ygnacio Plaza in Walnut Creek


Ygnacio Plaza, Walnut Creek

Last month Encore Theatrical Supply Company closed at Ygnacio Plaza in Walnut Creek after 20 years. Their Dublin location remains open. Check out their website here.

From their website:

Regrettably there are no longer enough sales to support the expense of providing the store. We are saddened to have to close and all that goes with it. We will miss our loyal customers and our staff in Walnut Creek.

Thank you again for your patronage. We await you in our Dublin location. At the right times of day it’s not a bad drive. We ask for your support for our remaining Dublin store so we can continue to fit shoes and help the dance and theater community. Please make your purchases with us, encourage your dance teacher to recommend the store rather than an online site, and bring us your group orders.
