Is Acupuncture Right For You?

Do you have chronic pain? Suffer with digestive, urinary, reproductive, psychological, or emotional disorders? Are you experiencing issues after surgery or chemotherapy? Do you have seasonal allergies, high blood pressure, or an addiction? If so, acupuncture may be for you.


What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. As a key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing energy or life force flow — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe your energy flow will re-balance.

In contrast, many Western practitioners view acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. Research shows that this may regulate your body's natural pain response.

The Acupuncture Session

It begins with a review of your medical history, symptoms and a medical examination that includes looking at your tongue to find any imbalances in your body.

Then you will lie down or sit on a table, and the acupuncturist will put needles into various points on your body. Depending on your condition, electrical stimulation may also be utilized.

Afterward, they may dim the lights and play quiet music to help you relax for 20-30 minutes. Periodically they will check in to ensure you're comfortable - some patients even fall asleep.

Acupuncture FAQS

Is acupuncture safe?

In the hands of a professionally trained practitioner, Acupuncture is safe and has very few, if any negative side effects.

Acupuncture needles are pre-sterilized, single-use needles. They are safe and painless to use and safely discarded after the treatment.

One of the significant advantages of acupuncture is that it is very safe. Other than an occasional bruise, side effects are extremely rare.
What I should and should not do after acupuncture?
After acupuncture, drinking plenty of fluids, eating healthy foods, and getting enough rest is essential. It would be best if you avoided alcohol, cigarettes, and strenuous activities. Remember to take it easy after your acupuncture session and listen to your body!
Usually, we schedule treatments weekly, sometimes bi-weekly, until we successfully treat your problem. Afterward, many patients continue treatment bi-weekly or monthly to ensure they stay healthy.
Acupuncture treatments are not painful. Acupuncture needles are extremely fine, almost like hair, and it is sometimes hard to even feel them being inserted. Patients often fall asleep and are in deep relaxation on the table.
The best way to prepare is to eat a snack or a light meal before treatment, so your body has sufficient energy to work with. It is best to wear loose clothing so that your arms and legs are accessible for therapy.
The number of treatments will depend on the condition(s) being treated. Generally, more recent complaints take less visits to treat than chronic, long-standing illnesses.
