Acupuncture, part of the 4,000-year-old traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is a method of balancing and building the body’s life force energy known as “qi” or “chi”. Acupuncturists gently insert tiny disposable needles along pathways called meridians through which this energy circulates. TCM views disease as the result of an imbalance, deficiency, or blockage in the body’s natural energy flow. Rather than merely treating symptoms, acupuncture releases the blockages, strengthens the body, and supports balance which allows the body to heal itself.
What To Expect
A personal assessment of the tongue and pulse, as well as a review of current symptoms, provides the information your acupuncturist needs to tailor a treatment plan to your unique needs. The tongue and pulse are the primary tools used in TCM to assess the body’s internal health and imbalances.
The number and frequency of treatments varies from person to person depending on the state of health and severity of imbalances. Overall, most people see changes within 3-4 treatments and significant improvement with their health concerns in 8-12 treatments. Acupuncture can be also used on a regular basis to promote balance and maintain wellness.
Herbal treatments are often prescribed as an adjunct to acupuncture care to accelerate and support the therapeutic effects of the treatment as well as to treat conditions that are not as effectively treated by acupuncture.
Acupuncture works on your whole health and can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Acute/chronic pain
- Menstrual irregularities
- Morning Sickness
- Carpal Tunnel
- Chronic Fatigue
- Common cold
- Digestive trouble
- Emotional problems
- And many more…
