What can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture has been found effective for both acute and chronic conditions, including headaches, chronic fatigue, depression, allergies, back pain, digestive disorders, joint pain, sleeping problems, infertility, menstrual disorders, and other symptoms.
What about the needles?
Acupuncture needles are solid, slender, slightly thicker than human hair – they bear no resemblance to syringes. They are of the finest quality, stainless steel, presterilized, and disposable.
Does acupuncture hurt?
The treatment process calls for the needles to be inserted just beneath the skin’s surface. Sensations vary from person to person with some clients feeling a dull, momentary ache to tingling sensation.
What relationship is there between acupuncture and other medical care?
Acupuncture is concerned with the whole person and addresses many levels of functioning but does have limitations. Acupuncture is highly effective when used in conjunction with other health-promoting practices.
What will my first visit be like?
During your initial consultation, the practitioner will discuss with you all of your reasons for seeking treatment. The discussion will include a summary of your body’s systems, your medical and social history, and your diet and lifestyle. A nuance pulse and tongue diagnosis, and physical examination are an essential part of the consultation, as well.
