Connecting body, mind, and spirit
One of the oldest modalities for healing, acupuncture works on networks called meridians in the body much like our nervous and circulatory systems. The body’s vital energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), circulates through these meridians and points along the pathways clog up or get weak, causing not only pain but dysfunction in the immune, reproductive, digestive, and other systems of the body. The insertion of very fine, painless needles into these points mobilizes the flow of Qi and restores balance and health. Many disorders that typically are only managed by Western medicine resolve with ongoing acupuncture treatment as the source of the imbalance is corrected.

The needles are approximately the size of a cat’s whisker. The sensation caused by an acupuncture needle varies. You may experience a brief pinching sensation, vague numbness, heaviness, tingling, or dull ache where the acupuncture needle has been inserted. Also, you may feel a sensation or energy spreading or moving around the needle. All of these reactions are good and a sign that the treatment is working. After treatment, you may feel energized or may experience a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
Treatment frequency depends on a variety of factors: your constitution, the severity and duration of the problem and the quality and quantity of your Qi. Some people experience immediate relief; others may take weeks or longer to achieve lasting results. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute ones. Plan on a minimum of a month to see significant changes. An acupuncturist may suggest one or two treatments per week, or monthly visits for health maintenance and seasonal “tune ups”.
