About Acupuncture


What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves the insertion and manipulation of tiny sterile needles at specific points on the body. The needles are one-time use, pre-sterilized and disposable. I use a gentle needling technique and tailor the treatment to the sensitivity level of each patient for a relaxing experience.

Acupuncture works at a deep energetic level in the body, influencing pathways of qi to open and flow freely. A combination of points will be chosen for you based on your needs. Some are moving and promote flow of energy and blood, while others are more nourishing and help organs function better. Acupuncture is safe for people of all ages and health conditions and has very low risk of side effects when administered by a trained practitioner.

The positive side effects after an acupuncture treatment often include feeling more relaxed, less tense, improved energy and better sleep. Some people choose to do acupuncture "tune-ups" on a regular basis because they just feel better when they do. Acupuncture helps the body stay in balance and functioning optimally. When this balance occurs, the immune system is stronger and the body can do much to heal itself. In this day and age of constant stimulation with cell phones, media, busy work and social lives, we all need more moments of true relaxation and peace to give our bodies a chance to rejuvenate. Acupuncture treatments are a benefit to your long term health.
Typically a course of 3-5 treatments is recommended initially for an acute issue. Once an initial course of treatment has been completed, a treatment plan and frequency will be suggested to maintain the positive effects. More chronic, degenerative conditions may require maintaining treatments periodically for a longer period of time.
