Acupuncture is the use of very fine disposable sterile
needles inserted at specific acupoints of the body to re-balance the internal
environment, and thus treat disease. According to TCM, acupuncture influences
the vital force, or Qi, of the body. Western science has proven that
acupuncture can regulate the body by many mechanisms, including stimulating the
endocrine, circulatory, and nervous systems.
Acupuncture is effective for a large variety of health
problems particularly for acute or chronic pain.
It can reduce pain that causes
insomnia, allowing a person to sleep better and heal faster. Acupuncture can
reduce the amount of pain medication necessary to funcation pain free, and is
safe when used in conjunction with medications.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Most patients find treatments relaxing and rejuvenating.
During your first visit, you will be asked many questions, some related
specially to your complaint and others seemingly unrelated.
With all aspects of TCM, your entire case in taken into
consideration so we can determine what is causing the disease.
We treat the whole person, not just the symptom. After that the practitioner will look at your tongue and
feel your pulse – two key diagnostic methods of TCM. After the initial evaluation you will receive an acupuncture treatment, so
please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing.
