A course or series of acupuncture treatment is customized to each person and her/his desired result.

Acupuncture has been practiced for several thousand years in Asia; it is now an increasingly common treatment choice for patients on all continents. Acupuncture is the stimulation of points on the body with fine, flexible, sterile needles. Vital energy, or qi (“chee”), flows through intricate systems of energy pathways in each body.   With injury or stress, energy pathways and regions can become obstructed, sluggish or over-active.  Regulating flow restores optimal function and comfort.  These areas are needled, heated or massaged to improve our comfort and health. Acupuncturists examine and check that circulation of blood and energy are reaching each area and system in a patient’s body.   Adjustments in flow and balance support efficient function and well-being.

A course or series of acupuncture treatment is customized to each person and her/his desired result. In each treatment, the choice of acupuncture points reflects a person’s basic constitution/body type (hot-tempered or cool and calm), their daily environment (it might be hot, damp, drafty) as well as the nature or pattern of the symptoms (such as shoulder discomfort or cloudy weather headaches) that had them seek treatment.

Acupuncture is recommended for a wide variety of conditions such as acid reflux, insomnia and fibromyalgia. Research in the US shows strong results in easing conditions such as osteoarthritis, fertility and chemotherapy-related nausea, among others. It is a common choice for patients recovering from accidents or injuries. Dozens of medical centers are adding acupuncture into programs to enhance surgical recovery, physical therapy and stroke rehabilitation outcomes.
