Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms dis-harmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these dis-harmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body’s vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow.Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating needles at specific points on the body, with the intention to help the body heal itself.
The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment is necessary. For acute conditions, it may only take a few sessions for relief of your symptoms. Chronic conditions can take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment, this is an opportunity to meet me and an opportunity to ask general questions about Traditional Chinese Medicine. You will be required to sign a consent form and the acupuncture intake will follow. Questions will be asked to determine which approach(es) would be best suited for you.
