What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness for over 200 years. Acupuncture is proven to remedy acute or chronic ailments, relieve pain, enhance recuperative powers, and strengthen the immune system.

In an Oriental Medicine assessment, your practitioner will diagnose, or differentiate, your condition with a thorough examination which will include an interpretation based on medical history, pulse, and tongue diagnosis.

Your practitioner may also use the following adjunct techniques with your session: Moxibustion (heat), Gua Sha (scraping), Cupping (suction), Auricular Therapy (ear acupuncture), Electrical or laser stimulation, or even manipulation of the points.

What is Acupuncture Treatment Like?

Extremely fine, hair thin, flexible, single use needles are placed at specific acupuncture points on the body. When the needles are inserted, you may experience a sensation of tingling or warmth. People are surprised to find that treatments are actually quite relaxing.

The length and frequency of a treatment may vary for each individual and will be determined by your Acupuncturist or Doctor of Oriental Medicine.
