What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Patient will come in to fill out paper work (general information, chief complaints and other complaints) We will then sit down with the patient to discuss their complaints in order to gather history of how the injury has occurred. Once a diagnosis has been established, we will then determine a treatment strategy.

We usually begin with some form of myofascial release, either with application of heat or without. Finally, acupuncture needles are administered to complete the treatment process.

How many treatments will I require?

Each patient is unique and responds to acupuncture differently, so the number and frequency of treatments will vary from patient to patient.

The number of treatments needed to address a specific health concern depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition or a series of five to fifteen treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Your body constitution, severity of problem, and the length of time that you have been sick, will all play a part in this. Since acupuncture addresses the health of the whole body, there are many people that seek regular acupuncture treatment to maintain good health and as a preventative measure.

What is the length of an acupuncture treatment?

Individual treatments will vary in length from 20 minutes to one hour.

What is involved in herbal treatment/therapy?

Beyond understanding acupuncture, the public is quite curious about the Asian herbal aspect of Oriental medicine. Asian herbal medicine consists mainly of vegetable sources, leaves, flowers, twigs, stems, roots, tubers, rhizomes, and bark. In addition, there are animal and mineral products used on occasion when necessary. Most acupuncturists use herbal medicine in raw, powder, and pill form. Raw herbs take some cooking and may taste strong or undesirable. There is a saying in Chinese, “bitter mouth, good medicine.” Herbal pills may be prescribed instead of raw herbs for less severe conditions. Likewise, herbal medicines are rapidly increasing in economic importance, with the U.S. claiming over $60 million in world market herbal sales, including raw materials.

In China, herbal medicine has traditionally been the most fundamental method of treatment. Medicinal herbal formulas are dispensed to each patient based upon the patient’s individual constitution and current medical condition. Unlike western herbs, Asian herbs are used in very specific combinations, as opposed to singular herbs. An herbal formula may be comprised of as many as 15 herbs, all having specific purposes within the formula. These herbal formulas, like acupuncture, work to unlock the qi, to nourish, and to repair the organs.

What can I expect on my first visit?

You will receive an evaluation where you will able to ask questions and any concerns you have you may address. We will then help determine where and what is the best way to treat you.

Do the needles hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very small in size commonly compared to a strand of hair. The needles are solid not hollow. They are rounded not pointed which help you feel comfort with the injections. If you happen to feel the insertion, you may experience one of two things (u may feel a small like mosquito bite) then the arrival of energy from the tip of the needle. You may also feel a warm electric sensation throughout your body. If you happen to feel any discomfort at all it will easily fade away very fast.

What are some benefits received from Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be used to help treat multiple medical conditions in a natural way of healing your body without being under the influence of any medications which can often cause side effects which can prevent you from your daily living. Maybe you’ve been suffering from an acute or chronic pain for over some time. Well Acupuncture is one of the fastest ways to help restore your health and wellness back.

What is qi?

Qi (pronounced “chee”) is based on the ancient Chinese theory of the flow of energy. Qi and blood (xue) flow through distinct meridians or pathways that cover and fill the body, somewhat like the nerves and blood vessels. Open meridians are essential for optimal health.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture treatment is rendered based on an Oriental medical diagnosis that includes an assessment of pulse quality, shape and color of the tongue, medical history and whole body evaluation. Following the diagnosis, acupuncture points are chosen on the body along acupuncture meridians, or pathways. Needle stimulation of these points increases the body’s healing energy or qi. The body has approximately one thousand acupuncture points.

Qi circulates throughout the body within the meridians, which also are related to the internal organs. Qi surfaces to the skin level at specific points. Good health depends on the smooth flow of qi. When the flow of qi is blocked due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, hereditary conditions, environmental factors, or excessive emotional issues, the system is disrupted. Illness is then generated. In accordance with ancient theory, acupuncture allows qi to flow to areas where it is deficient and away from areas where it is in excess. In this way, acupuncture regulates and restores a harmonious energetic balance in the body. There is a Chinese saying, “There is no pain if there is free flow; if there is pain, there is no free flow.”
