Our process

Front-line medical research has proven that acupuncture helps to treat more than pain, including depression, anxiety, cancer treatment symptoms, a wide variety of internal medicine disorders, and increases the effectiveness of other medical treatments and medications. You do not need a referral for treatment at our clinic.

Our clinical setting is safe, clean, and comfortable. Our staff wear masks at all times during a visit and there are medical grade air filters in each of our rooms. Our practitioner is never more than a button push away. At our clinic, we begin with a thorough evaluation of your health history, including any medications or supplements you are taking and any symptoms or health concerns you may have. We then develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

You will lie comfortably while our acupuncturist inserts the needles into specific points on your body during your acupuncture treatment. Depending on your condition and treatment goals, these points may be located anywhere from your feet to your head.

The needles are typically left in place for 20-45 minutes while you relax and rest. Most people find the experience profoundly calming and relaxing. You may experience a feeling of Qi or heaviness in the needle insertion area. Therapies at our clinic include acupuncture, acupressure, heat therapy, moxabustion, and cupping. Each of these are explained in depth prior to procedures.

After your treatment, our acupuncturist will discuss any recommendations for follow-up care or additional treatments as needed. Your acupuncturist can also make a referral to see another physician if necessary. It is common to feel some immediate relief after the first treatment, but a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

If you have any questions or concerns about the acupuncture process, we are always here to provide you with the information and support you need. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation and experience the benefits of acupuncture for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of complimentary medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into the body at specific points. This stimulates the central nervous system and triggers biochemical changes. It is a safe and effective way to treat a variety of conditions.

What is Qi?
Qi (Chi) is the Traditional Chinese Medicine term for the flow of neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and blood circulation within the body. This creates a relaxing sensation unique to acupuncture and deep meditation. Acupuncturists use needles to stimulate and modify the flow of Qi.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required varies depending on the individual and their condition. Some people feel relief after just one session, but multiple sessions may be required to obtain longer lasting results. The number of sessions needed will be discussed upon examination.

What should I expect during an acupuncture treatment?
Safety and results! During an acupuncture treatment, you will lie comfortably and the acupuncturist will insert needles into specific points on your body. You may feel some heaviness but overall the process is very relaxing. Duration of needle retention is dependent on the patient, and there are options for those with a fear of needles.

Is acupuncture safe?
Yes. Acupuncture is considered a safe form of complimentary medicine. The needles are sterile and disposable; practitioners are trained to follow strict safety protocols. In the hands of an experienced practitioner, patients should be able to tell when acupuncture is working quickly after insertion as well as trust that the process is careful and methodical.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, including pain, anxiety, depression, arthritis, neurological and digestive problems, and infertility and pregnancy issues, to name a few. Asian Medicine pattern recognition allows acupuncturists to treat many conditions based on the location of symptoms and not their western diagnosis. There are very few limits to what acupuncture can treat.

Does insurance cover acupuncture?
Many insurance plans now cover acupuncture treatments. Check with your insurance provider to see if your plan covers acupuncture.

How does acupuncture work and what are the side effects?
The needles trigger natural processes in the body that have a therapeutic effect on pain reception, involuntary body functions, immunity, circulation, and body temperature. Fatigue that does not last more than 24 hours is the main side effect of acupuncture, but is rare.

What should I wear to an acupuncture appointment?
Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your acupuncture appointment. It is also a good idea to eat something light beforehand and avoid alcohol and caffeine.
