Acupuncture is the use of hair fine needles that are inserted into the skin at specific locations in the body to stimulate changes in the nervous system, release endorphins, promote oxygen and blood flow and bring the body back into homeostasis. Acupuncture is able to combat stress, relieve various ailments, treat injuries, and support the immune system to fight invasions that may attack the body.
During the insertion of fine needles in certain points, patients will often feel nothing, on occasion there will be a light pinch, less painful than plucking an eyebrow hair, and a subsequent dull, heavy, achy, warm, or tingling sensation. Patients have said to have felt the sensation move to another area of the body as well. This is a good thing. These sensations are all common and often welcomed responses to acupuncture stimulation.
Safety precautions are taken very seriously and we ensure that all needles are packaged, single use only acupuncture needles. All used needles are disposed of in a labeled biohazard container and shipped to a disposal company when the container is full. During needling, all major organs, blood vessels, and nerves are considered carefully. As an acupuncturist, training in Clean Needle Technique is required to be able to begin practicing. We take your health and safety seriously.
Your first appointment will be your 90-minute initial exam. In this session you will sit with your practitioner and discuss your goals of care. Your practitioner will do the necessary physical exams and tests and you will receive your first acupuncture treatment. This treatment is to get to know you, your needs, and get an idea of how your body receives acupuncture. A specialized, specific, and individualized treatment plan will be created and given to you at the end of your initial exam or at your follow up appointment.
