Do you remember when you used to feel great, had less pain, slept well, woke up rested, had lots of energy, weren’t taking medications for all sorts of symptoms? You CAN get your body back, to have that energy you loved, to be living the life you were meant to live. Acupuncture can help you regain control of your life, your health, your wellness.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture helps your body heal itself so it can function optimally, as it inherently knows how. In Chinese medicine we believe there are 12 major pathways, known as meridians, that move the blood, bodily fluids and energy throughout your body. These meridians help nourish your body, and can flush areas where there is congestion and pain. There are hundreds of acupuncture points along these meridians and by placing tiny needles at specific points, we help to stimulate movement and create healing. By asking more deeply into your conditions, it is our goal to uncover and treat the root cause, allowing your symptoms to dissipate.
Acupuncture was developed thousands of years ago, to help restore, promote and maintain good health. It is rooted in the Daoist philosophy of change and growth, balance and harmony. Acupuncture continues to be practiced extensively throughout Asia, Europe, and is being integrated more and more into our Western medical world, our military and as part of addictions programs.
- The body is wise
- The body is self-healing
- The body, mind and spirit levels are all treated to reach the root cause of your symptoms.
The body is wise:
A symptom is our body’s way of telling us the body-mind-spirit isn’t functioning as optimally as it should. By treating the root cause, acupuncture helps your symptoms dissipate.
The body is self-healing:
Our body is well-designed and knows how to perform countless functions without us even thinking about it – digesting food, forming a baby, mobilizing the immune system to name a few. There are times though when it doesn’t function as it should and can’t maintain that pregnancy or fight off diseases, can’t sleep well, creates migraines, anxiety or pain. Acupuncture works with the body’s inherent wisdom to help it do the countless functions it already knows how to do.
Treating body, mind and spirit levels:
In Oriental medicine, we believe that symptoms arise from physical, emotional and spiritual reasons. By digging more deeply into symptoms, we attempt to reach and treat the root cause allowing the symptoms to dissipate. Side effects include sleeping better, a more robust immune system, and a better awareness of your own body. This healing modality can empower you to take responsibility for your own health and wellness.
The Initial Consult, which is done just once, consists of us reviewing your medical, social, and lifestyle history which is followed by the initial acupuncture treatment. Each treatment consists of lying on the comfortable treatment table, allowing yourself to be tended to and even sleeping if you like. Generally patients leave each treatment feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Initial Consult and first Acupuncture Treatment: $150, lasting two hours.
Follow-up Acupuncture Treatments: $100, lasting approximately an hour.
