What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been around for over 3,000 years as a healing technique of Traditional Oriental Medicine (TMI). The US National Institute of Health (NIH) has documented and publicized Acupuncture’s safety and efficiency for treating a wide variety of health conditions.

This science works to treat and stimulate the balanced flow of vital energy through the body. This energy flow is known as “Qi” and is essential to good health. Qi is responsible for our overall wellbeing, self regulation and healing potential. When it’s balance is deficient or obstructed, the body becomes vulnerable, diseased, imbalanced, and susceptible to illness or injury. It’s the harmonious flow of Qi that allows us to feel positive feelings of health and vitality physically, mentally, and emotionally.

How does acupuncture work?

When an acupoint is stimulated, it influences the organs and functions that may be distant from that point. The needle insertion encourages the body’s own healing abilities.

What can I expect during and after my acupuncture therapy?
  • Acupuncture is not meant to be painful; however, not all acupoints are created equal. Some points are more sensitive than others and may cause you to feel pain or an ‘electric’ sensation.
  • Acupuncture is not an instantaneous treatment. It will take up to 24 hrs before you feel the full results from your session.
  • In order to ensure the success of your sessions, it is important to perform the specific treatment plan and amount of sessions recommended. Once symptoms have been resolved, monthly maintenance sessions may be recommended.
  • Stay hydrated and drink lots of water after your session. Try to avoid alcohol and caffeine for up to 24 hours.
  • Your acupuncture sessions may be enhanced when incorporating massage, aromatherapy, or any other service related to your concern at hand.
