You’ll meet with the practitioner for 15-30 minutes on your initial visit to discuss your specific circumstances. You will receive your first treatment after your treatment plan has been prepared and all of your questions have been answered.

Acupuncture, acupressure, or Chinese herbs may be used in your treatment to aid in restoration and healing.

After the intake treatments usually last 40 to 50 minutes. The length of each treatment is determined by the patient’s specific needs and conditions.

Acupuncture is a medicinal treatment that originated in Asia about 2000 years ago. Acupuncture uses acupuncture needles to stimulate certain areas beneath the skin. This procedure restores the body’s energy, also known as “Qi,” to its original state. Traditional Oriental Medicine includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Moxibustion, among other modalities.

According to Traditional Oriental Medicine, a meridian system runs through the human body. Meridians are energy pathways that are invisible in this system. There are more than 360 points on the body that correspond to specific organs and physical activities. Along the same meridian, you’ll find point groups on the body that correspond to a specific organ or function. The energy in these meridians flows easily in a healthy, normally functioning organism, resulting in a balanced system. When the flow of energy is disrupted, such as through stress or injury, this energy is diminished, causing your “Qi” to become unbalanced. This Qi or balance is restored by employing the points connected with the particular meridian implicated in acupuncture.

Acupuncture needles are constructed of surgical level stainless steel, and are very thin. During the treatment you may experience a variety of sensations, such as mild tingling, numbness, warmth, or pressure, which differ from pain. These sensations are often commented as nice and soothing.

Acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years. One-fourth of the world’s population chooses acupuncture as their therapy of choice! The needles are FDA-approved, individually packaged, pre-sterilized, single-use only and safe.

There are a variety of conditions that can be treated with Oriental Medicine, including acupuncture. These include any type of bodily pain and aches (i.e. headache, migraine, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, knee pain, sciatica etc.), dysfunction of bodily systems, such as respiratory (i.e. cough, asthma, allergies, sinus problems etc.), digestive (i.e. diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis etc.), reproductive, nervous, cardiovascular (i.e. high or low blood pressure, cold hands and feet etc.), urinary, lymphatic and musculoskeletal (i.e. arthritis, tendonitis, cervical spondylopathy, tennis and golfers elbow etc.), as well as emotional and psychological conditions (i.e. anxiety, depression, nervousness, insomnia etc.).

Because each person’s situation is unique, the number of treatments will vary. The nature, intensity, and history of each patient’s condition, as well as the individual’s constitution, all play a role in determining how many treatments are required.

Depending on the condition being treated, a variety of reactions may occur after the first treatment. It’s possible to have immediate, total, or partial relief from pain or other symptoms. Some people may feel a surge of energy, while others may feel calm. A peaceful contentment is felt by many people. Small, localized bruises from small under-the-skin bleeding are uncommon, although they do happen. These aren’t cause for concern, and despite the cosmetic nuisance, they actually provide a benefit. Even without the needle in place, blood reabsorption continues to simulate the acupuncture site.

Acupuncture will not interact with any medications you are taking. Acupuncture is designed to complement and NOT TO REPLACE the treatments provided by your physician. You should speak with your physician and acupuncturist about this concern.
