What does acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture is unique in that it can improve the body’s function while promoting the natural self-healing of the cells and tissues. Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats many conditions. We specialize in treating pain of the neck, back, shoulders and knees, ankles and Wrists, as well as nausea, fatigue, emotional concerns, digestive complaints and general stress, immune support and facial rejuvenation.
When should I get acupuncture?
Acupuncture can start to relieve symptoms immediately. You can come for a treatment before or after work, a workout/run/yoga session and most anything else.
Why choose acupuncture over other medical treatments?
There are almost no side effects when done properly by a trained and licensed acupuncturist. We treat our patients with their whole body system in mind. We are focused on improving a patient's quality of life and overall health, not just the symptoms they came in for originally.
How does acupuncture work?
Researchers are still not completely sure but here’s what we know so far: Acupuncture works by stimulating nerves and improving blood circulation to certain areas of the body.
Do the needles hurt?
The simple answer is no, they should not, but every once and awhile you will feel a pinch, which almost always goes away within a few seconds.
How many treatments do I need?
For every year you've had a condition, is the number of months of treatment you’ll need. Treatments are typically once a week. If the problem is more acute you may need treatments more often in the beginning. Wellness visits can be monthly.
Do you do cupping?
Yes, we perform cupping. Cupping is awesome for pain relief and improving blood flow!
Do you provide other services besides acupuncture and cupping?
Yes, we also use shiatsu, electro-stimulation and trigger point needling.
