The goal of Acupuncture is to understand the patterns of disease of the individual at the time of examination. During your initial visit we will assess your physical condition, by identifying symptoms, uncovering your medical history and any external factors that may impact your health and well-being, through an extended interview.
Small needles are inserted into the top layer of the skin in order to restore balance, decrease pain, and promote health within the body.
Restoration occurs by allowing the body's natural energy, "Qi," to flow freely. With stimulation of specific acupuncture points in the skin,
energy flows, allowing the body to heal faster. In Western medicine, the needles are seen as an external stimulus that the body responds to by increasing blood flow to an area. The blood transports oxygen, nutrients,and other biochemicals to increase healing in the body.
This therapy works in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to help treat musculoskeletal and other conditions.
Our Acupuncture treatment room is warm and inviting with soothing music and relaxing essential oils. For patients that want a different alternative to acupuncture needles our office does offer other options that stimulate acupuncture points without the use of needles. Please call our office to learn more about acupuncture and to discover if it's right for you.
