Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of medical treatment. Practitioners of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have used this noninvasive treatment method to help millions of people become well and stay well. Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well being. The goal is always to activate the body’s own abilities to heal and grow stronger.

During the initial exam the Acupuncturist conducts a full health survey. This includes questions about health, symptoms and lifestyle. A physical exam may be conducted which may include pulse and tongue evaluations. The information gained enables the Acupuncturist to effectively diagnose and detect specific imbalances that may be contributing to a person’s health problems and leads to a well structured treatment plan. 

 

Based on the treatment plan the Acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupuncture points along what is referred to in TCM as meridian pathways. This safe insertion of needles can unblock the obstruction and bring balance back to the body, relieving pain and enabling the natural healing process to occur as the body provides nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles.
