Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a Chinese medicine treatment method by insertion of very fine, brand new, sterile medical grade needles into predefined energetic points in the body to open the network of energy pathways that run through the body, facilitate the free flow circulation of energy and blood to remove obstructions or blockages, rectify imbalances by guiding the energy to where it needs to go, and ultimately restore the entire system back to a healthy balance and efficient functioning. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete healing system which addresses all conditions of the human body. Having been in existence for millennia, Traditional Chinese Medicine is a time-tested, world-renowned holistic medical system. It is effective when using alone or as complementary medicine when working with other healing modalities including conventional allopathic medicine.

Does it hurt?

This is probably the most commonly asked question about acupuncture, however there is no standard answer because every person has different pain threshold and response. Generally, acupuncture is tolerable. Some points are more sensitive than others depending on the areas of the body. Most needles are inserted without causing any discomfort to our patients. Any uncomfortable sensation would be felt only at the initial insertion of needle and goes away after a few seconds. Once all needles are inserted, the rest of the treatment is absolutely comfortable and relaxing. With repeated treatments, most patients grow accustomed to the needle sensation and their initial anxiety also dissipates. Rest assured that you're not alone in this process. Our acupuncturist is ready to coach and assist you should any discomfort arise.

When can you expect to feel improvement?

Everyone responds differently to a treatment depending on the nature and severity of the condition being treated, other pre-existing conditions that can have bearing on the recuperative power of the individual, and patient's compliance to the treatment regimen. There is not one standard gauge that measures all people equally. Based on our experience, the majority of patients feel improvement within the week of the first treatment. The acupuncture effects are cumulative, therefore the likelihood of increasing improvement is expected as patient goes through the course of treatment and stays firmly with the treatment plan.
