WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles applied to your skin at strategic points on your body to produce specific therapeutic effects and healing. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture is used to treat pain and muscular tension as well as many other ailments.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy/life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — which flows through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, Acupuncture will help your energy flow to re-balance, to remove blockages and to move Chi and blood through the body, which helps relieve stagnation and pain. It also promotes healing, a sense of well-being and helps to balance the body and the organs.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
Acupuncture is best used as an ongoing therapy that seeks to maintain the physiological balance of the body’s self-healing response, thereby preventing the occurrence of disease. The number of treatments necessary will depend on any number of factors related to the individual patient and will be discussed during the initial assessment and treatment. Most clients will feel some change to their symptoms within a few treatments although more time is often necessary to resolve the problem.
A 90-minute Initial consultation session includes a full health history to make sure you get the right prescription, and/or treatment protocol. An initial consultation is required for all first-time clients. 60-minute Acupuncture and cupping appointments are available after the initial consultation appointment.
