WILL IT WORK FOR ME?
Acupuncture works. It has been successfully used on people for thousands of years as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture can be a highly effective and safe treatment for a variety of ailments and conditions. This is because acupuncture helps stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities by inserting very thin needles just under the skin's surface at strategic points on the body called acupuncture points.
Needling these points increases blood flow, releases hormones and stimulates the nervous and immune systems resulting in improved physical and mental health.
ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT PLAN
Our clinic offers treatment plans designed specifically to not only relieve the symptoms but also address the root causes of your ailments. Each session is carefully designed to address both your short and long term health requirements.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior To Treatment
Our experienced and certified acupuncturist will meet with you to discuss your condition. A quick and simple Meridian Health Assessment will be performed to help us accurately identify your health issues and come up with a personalized treatment plan for you.
The total number of treatment sessions will also be discussed during this time.
Hair-thin needles will be inserted into various acupuncture points of your body and left anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
For the majority of people, these needles are painless but some people might feel a minor pinch which will go away quickly.
After treatment, most people generally report feeling relaxed and energized as blocked energy begins to flow and feel-good hormones are released.
Some people may feel a little fatigued or may experience minor aches. These symptoms will fade quickly as the body adjusts to treatment.
