What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin, hair-like needles into points on the skin to balance energy flow along energy pathways known as meridians. There are 12 main meridians in the human body and more than 400 acupuncture points. Treating acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system which leads to the release of biochemicals that can help with a variety of conditions including, but not limited to pain reduction, improved sleep, decreased anxiety, and depression.

What types of acupuncture
are performed in our office?

In our office, we provide Traditional Chinese Medicine-based needle acupuncture, as well as auriculotherapy. Auriculotherapy is a form of “ear acupuncture” based on the idea that the ear is a micro system with acupuncture points which represent the entire body and corresponding body systems. Auriculotherapy utilizes points located on the ear instead of points located on the head, arms, legs, and trunk.

What can you expect from
a new patient acupuncture
appointment?

New patient Acupuncture appointments start with a detailed patient history, a discussion of the patient’s goals and a review of past treatment. After a thorough history and exam, we will discuss our treatment recommendations with you, you will have an opportunity to ask any questions and we will discuss when to begin care. In most cases, we can administer acupuncture treatment on the first visit.
