Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the process of inserting fine needles into the skin at precisely chosen acupuncture points.  After a thorough consultation and evaluation, the acupuncturist will decide where and how many needles will be used to facilitate treatment process. 

Acupuncture needles are thin, flexible needles and are unique and very dissimilar to hypodermic needles.  An acupuncture needle can be as small as 1/100th of a hypodermic needle and acupuncture needles are not hollow nor do they have a cutting edge.  Thus, the sensation from acupuncture needles is quite different than from a hypodermic needle.  Many patients report either no sensation, or a tingling sensation, or a dull pricking sensation from an acupuncture treatment.

Other modalities which may be used in conjunction with an acupuncture session include TDP Heat Lamp therapy, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, tui na, herbal preparations, herbal liniments, herbal ointments, herbal creams and herbal salves.

 The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes over 43 conditions as being responsive to acupuncture treatment.  These conditions range from pain, asthma, migraines, PMS, gastrointestinal problems, and anxiety and depression.  The goal in acupuncture is to treat the whole patient rather than relieve individual symptoms.
