Acupuncture

Acupuncture is only one of the many modalities we use in Oriental Medicine. It involves the insertion of extremely fine, disposable needles into specific points in the body. There are many scientific theories about how stimulation of these points benefits the organs, tissues and fluids of the body.

Acupuncture

As research from around the world has become more widely known, acupuncture has become increasingly accepted as an effective treatment for a broad range of both chronic and acute conditions including pain, fatigue, emotional unrest, nervous system disorders, musculo-skeletal problems, sinus/respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal conditions, gynecological disorders as well as a long list of many other health concerns.

Does acupuncture hurt?istock_manacupface_flipped

When the fine needle is inserted through the skin, there is a slight prickling sensation that is almost painless. We have developed techniques to make this as undetectable as possible. Usually the needle is inserted only a fraction of an inch through the skin. Once the needle is in place, another sensation arises, usually a tingling or numbness or perhaps a feeling of warmth or heaviness around the needle. This is the desired effect. It indicates that the body is responding and balancing itself effectively. Acupuncture treatments are usually deeply relaxing, rejuvenating and delightful experiences.
