Acupuncture Follow-up Visit
The follow-up visit usually only takes about an hour. Loose clothing is again recommended.
We accept cash, checks, HSA cards, and credit/debit cards.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China more than 3,000 years ago and is used to treat illness, prevent disease, and improve total well-being. By inserting sterile, disposable needles in designated points on the body, the practitioner stimulates and balances the ﬂow of Qi (“chee”), which is the body’s natural energy.
Acupuncture not only helps correct chronic conditions, but it also helps prevent disease by strengthening the natural immune system.
Over 20 million Americans have turned to Acupuncture. How can such an ancient medicine be at the forefront of the new millennium?
Simple, Acupuncture works.
Acupuncture can be used to alleviate muscular, internal and emotional issues. It is also effective as preventive maintenance. In other words, it is an exceptional way to correct current ailments and maintain balanced health.
YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS - WE’VE GOT ANSWERS
How does Acupuncture work?
If a person has any imbalance in the body, symptoms may manifest as headaches, fatigue, constipation, PMS, insomnia, depression, pain, etc. Each symptom correlates to its own meridian or Qi pathway. Acupuncture is used to stimulate the Qi in the meridian connected to the imbalance, helping achieve alleviation of the symptom by removing blockages and encouraging the free ﬂow of energy.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
The needle insertion is mostly painless, but, since stimulation needs to be achieved, you may feel a heaviness or warm sensation around the needle or traveling up and down the meridian. Some people feel nothing when the needle is inserted, but we are looking for some sensation. Acupuncture needles are solid and as thin as a human hair. In Acupuncture, we administer needles with caution, avoiding arteries and nerves. Any kind of discomfort from the stimulation of the needle disappears in seconds.
What conditions does Acupuncture treat?
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome
Low back pain
Urinary tract infections
