What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient healing medicine that has been used for over 5000 years. It is a holistic therapy that utilizes specific diagnostic techniques to determine the root cause of an illness. By gaining detailed information from each patient, the treatment is tailored to be individual specific. Acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and incorporates massage , diet/lifestyle therapy and many other healing techniques to bring about balance and wellness. It is used to facilitate pain management , disease prevention and promote life long vitality.

How does Acupuncture feel?
After careful insertion of the acupuncture needles, special learned techniques are used to bring about the Qi, or life force movement and sensation. Everyone experiences this feeling differently and may include a feeling of heaviness, pressure, a dull ache or an energized feeling at and around the insertion point. It may also take a few treatments for your body to respond and notice this sensation. If you do not feel anything the first couple of treatments it doesn’t mean that acupuncture isn’t working for you, your body may just need time to adjust to this movement of healing.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works by utilizing a network of connections, called meridians, which exist between your internal organs, blood, body fluids, muscles and skin.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required depends on the condition and how long the condition has been present. It is reasonable to consider that the longer the illness has been present, the longer it will take to see treatment results. For some acute conditions, it may take only 2-3 treatments. Some chronic conditions may take one or more courses of treatment, with each course being 10 sessions. Of course, every person is treated as an individual case and all results will invariably differ from person to person.
