Acupuncture is the insertion of single-use & sterile stainless-steel needles through the skin. A typical treatment includes the insertion of these needles on points based on your presentation and symptoms. Each session is highly customized for you and your specific health concern. Most points selected are on the limbs and torso, although head and ear points can also be used. I also use a variety of modalities in addition to using needles. If you are needle sensitive, please let me know! I have other ways to make you feel your best.
I use diagnostic techniques such as looking at your tongue, feeling your pulse, and palpitating your body to understand the dynamics surrounding your health concern. I ask very in-depth questions about things like your lifestyle, dietary and general constitution to come up with the best treatment plan for you.
Acupuncture is recognized as effective at treating many conditions including the following:
-Disorders of the bones, muscles, and joints
-Nervous system disorders
-Emotional and psychological disorders
Acupuncture is often an effective therapy for other chronic and painful debilitating disorders that have no clear explanation or origin.
