Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese medicine is a complete medical system designed to treat disease and promote health and longevity. With nearly one third of all people worldwide using traditional Chinese medicine as primary care, it is one of the most widely used health systems in the world.

Acupuncture uses tiny, sterile, single use needles that are inserted gently into various points on the body to facilitate the flow of energy along energetic pathways called meridians. The movement of the body’s energy (Qi) allows healing to take place. If the pathways are blocked or are stagnant, symptoms like pain and possible disease processes can take place. It is the goal of Acupuncture to remove the blockage and help the body maintain a balanced state that will result in overall health and wellness. It is believed that acupuncture can help regulate the nervous system which affects brain chemistry through the release of neurotransmitters and possibly regulate hormones.

During a painless acupuncture treatment, the body becomes calm and the mind rests, giving the body time to re-boot and heal from the stressors and challenges of life.

We use a Computerized Acugraph Digital Meridian Imaging System to analyze and document the energetic status of your acupuncture meridians.  You will receive this computerized examination and given your results with a print out.  I like to think of this as an MRI or Xray of your energetics, ancient wisdom meets cutting-edge technology. With this information, we can make better informed decisions about your condition and provide the best treatment possible.  We also do traditional tongue diagnosis and palpation as part of your exam.

Based on the findings, you will be treated possibly with acupuncture, percussive vibration therapy, cupping, Gua sha (think scrapping or Graston), non-needle acupuncture with micro-current, laser, infra-red heat, auricular (ear acupuncture) with micro-current or laser, neuropuncture, dry needing or a combination of some or all of the above. We use the gentlest of techniques to ensure that anyone can receive the best eastern care no matter their level of comfort.

We use the latest technology of computerized graphing with an Acupgraph to map out your meridians and diagnose your particular health so each treatment is customized for your particular issues.

The benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions including but not limited to the following: Anxiety, stress, depression, digestive complaints, and pain syndromes from an injury like sports or chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis, neurological problems, asthma, sinusitis, gynecological issues, fatigue and general wellness.

Multiple studies are showing results for migraine headaches, low back pain and helping patients deal with pain and emotional conditions related to cancer and the side effects of chemotherapy. It has also been demonstrated to show clinical success in achieving pregnancy when combined and used in conjunction with in-vitro fertilization.
