Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites--commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. Needle acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body.
In traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force known as qi or chi (CHEE) believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians your energy flow will re-balance. Acupuncture is used to relieve many painful conditions and for general wellness. Before you receive an acupuncture treatment you will have an acupuncture exam to check for imbalances in your body.
The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, usually eight to ten visits in total. An individualized treatment plan that includes the expected number of treatments will be discussed during your initial visit.
