What Is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture is an effective holistic health care system that has helped millions of people become well and stay well.  Acupuncture promotes the body’s natural healing power or qi by inserting very thin sterile needles at specific points along pathways on the body.  This simulation will enhance the recuperative power of the body by increasing blood flow and modulating neurogenic and endocrine systems.  As a bonus, acupuncture has been proven to stimulate the “happy endorphins” of the body leaving you in a state of bliss.

What To Expect

Initial visit lasts about 75 minutes and consists of a detailed consultation and full acupuncture treatment.  During the consultation we will discuss your health history, prioritize your health concerns and develop a treatment plan unique to you.   After the consultation we will get you comfortable and start the acupuncture session.  After needle insertion you are left to rest comfortably for about 30 minutes, allowing the body to regenerate, recuperate and heal. Follow up visits last about an hour and are designed with your continued care in mind. There will be time given for a brief assessment and check in followed by a full acupuncture session.
