Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese observation that Qi (energy) courses through channels in the body just as streams and rivers ebb and flow across the surface of the earth.
Acupuncture points are located along these channels close to the surface of the skin.
Thin, solid, sterile, stainless steel acupuncture needles are inserted into the acupuncture points and harmonize this energy flow throughout the body. Points are selected based on the individuals comprehensive health history, constitution, physical signs and symptoms, and particular health complaint.
Acupuncture mobilizes Qi, invigorating the proper function of muscles, nerves, vessels, glands, and organs.
The purpose of an acupuncture treatment is to bring the body back into balance, and to harmonize the channels and energy flow
An acupuncture treatment may include herbal remedies, diet recommendations, exercises, etc. A typical acupuncture session lasts about one hour. The charge is $65 per session. Ongoing treatments depend on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and how long it has been present.
Acupuncture is scheduled as often as three times a week or as little as once or twice a month or even seasonally. Some individuals may need only a few sessions while others may need sustained care to reverse entrenched patterns established over time. As symptoms improve and the body is brought back into balance, fewer visits are needed.
