Our Acupuncture Menu
Acupuncture balances the body and stimulates it to heal itself on a profound level. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body is an energetic system first. The vital energy that runs through this system is called "qi" and the paths in which it flows are called "meridians." The substance of the body and all of its functions are dependent upon this flow of qi. When there is a blockage in the flow of qi, disease develops.
Besides our specialties, our acupuncturist has experience with various health concerns such as headaches (migraine, sinus, tension), weight loss, addiction (food, cigarettes, alcohol, drug), and more. We routinely provide supportive treatment for serious illness such as patients undergoing chemotherapy, autoimmune disease, and degenerative disease.
Many patients report that they do not feel the needle insertion or some may feel a sensation similar to a mosquito bite. Occasionally, you may experience a dull sensation at or around the needle while the needle is retained. This is your “Qi” or Vital Energy and is an indication of enhanced energy flow. Alleviating blockages in the body is one way to improve healing. Our acupuncturist will monitor the needles as they go in.Here is a list of what acupuncture helps treat, according to World Health Organization (WHO) and National Health Institute (NIH)
