The practice of Acupuncture is thousands of years old and is a branch of Chinese Medicine, which is a system of natural medicine that looks at the whole health of the whole person (not just separate parts or individual symptoms), to find the underlying root cause behind the symptoms to help the patient regain their health and vitality. You are a unique person living in a specific environment with a specific microbiome and set of genetics, and the Chinese Medicine model is looking at all of this with a focus on healthcare and prevention, not just sick-care and covering up symptoms with medication.
Acupuncture is a safe, cost-effective and natural way to help the body heal from illness and pain. Used effectively for several thousands of years, Acupuncture implements hair-thin needles placed strategically on the body to stimulate directly the nervous, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. It works directly on the fascia, with the nervous system, and on the cellular level (specifically fibroblast cells which release your own body’s biochemicals designed to promote healing), which is why it is so effective at treating so many different conditions.
Acupuncture is painless and often times during treatment the patient becomes so relaxed they may even take a nap! Treatments last for about 30 minutes, and can include acupuncture, craniosacral bodywork therapy and cupping.
Treatments are tailored specifically for each individual to address pain, illness, general health and well being, and/or for cosmetic acupuncture, including microneedling and facial rejuvenation. We also offer Functional Medicine consultations with the option for Acupuncture Add-ons. Please contact our office for details 208-264-0644.
