A central part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat a broad range of illnesses. An acupuncture treatment involves inserting very fine needles into specific points on the body to stimulate healing and alleviate pain. Acupuncture needles are very fine and insertion is a pain free experience. A combination of Chinese and Japanese techniques may be used depending on the situation, and only sterile disposable needles are used.
Acupuncture is well know for being a highly effective form of drug free pain relief used in conditions like headaches, back pain, sciatica, joint injury, arthritis and much more. Acupuncture is also of great benefit in many other situations. Digestive health, menstrual and fertility issues, respiratory ailments, skin diseases and emotional health can all be addressed with this therapy.
An initial vist for acupuncture involves a complete health history and assessment. The first visit may take up to 90 minutes, follow ups generally 45 minutes. A course of treatment generally involves weekly visits for 4-6 consultations, though may be more or less often depending on your specific situation and health needs.
