What is an Acupuncture Treatment Like?
After determining your underlying energy imbalances through a thorough intake and examination, acupuncture points are selected. The majority of points lie between elbows and wrists, knees and ankles. You remain completely clothed for most treatments. First you lie comfortably on a padded massage table listening to soft music. The selected points are swabbed with alcohol, then sterile, single-use acupuncture needles are inserted into those areas. Our needles are many times smaller than those used in a doctor’s office. Most people feel nothing and report a pleasant relaxation within a few minutes and often drift into a light sleep.
How Many Treatments Will it Take?
More recent (acute) symptoms can be resolved quickly. However, most people are dealing with chronic, long term issues and require an average of 6-12 weeks to heal. You’ll notice gradual improvements as we restore your body to balance. Symptoms lessen as you notice improved energy levels, sounder sleep, and better digestion. Many choose to continue with maintenance treatments to maintain balance and prevent illness from developing. Plus, acupuncture is profoundly relaxing! Some folks come just to de-stress.
An Ounce of Prevention!
Why wait for pain or sickness to develop before seeking acupuncture? People who receive maintenance treatments notice they visit the doctor less frequently. Preventing illness with natural medicine is a side benefit of receiving regular treatment. By moving your body’s qi, your energy has a constant flow, remaining balanced so that illness has a more difficult time becoming established. A regular schedule of treatment ensures that your immune system stays strong, your energy levels peak, and vibrant health is yours!
