Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective way to improve overall health. The holistic treatment approach originated more that 2,000 years ago. It has proven effective in clinical trials to treat and prevent a variety of medical conditions.
What to expect
First we will meet with you to determine your particular needs. We will review your medical history and discuss what you want to achieve with each treatment. Treatment frequency is determined on an individual basis, as each patient has different needs.
With acupuncture tiny hair-thin disposable needles are inserted at critical points on the body that connect nerves, muscles, and organs affecting the flow of the body’s energy. Depending on your treatment, the needles are left on the body from as few as 10 seconds to 30 minutes. Total treatment time is from 30 minutes to one hour.
