Acupuncture is of ancient Chinese Medicine that has been practiced for over 5000 years. With Acupuncture needles, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points of the body, depending on your specific need. The stimulation allows your body to restore the normal balance so organs and bodily systems can work together.
The initial visit will take about an hour and includes an extensive medical history, exam and treatment. Treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes. During the treatment, very thin disposable needles are inserted into several very specific points on your body while you are lying on a comfortable table. The needles are so thin that they do not cause pain; however, you may feel a sensation.
The needles are left in the body for 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the type of treatment that is offered. The needles are not meant to draw blood, however, there are some protocols that require small drops of blood to be extracted (for certain conditions).
Many people report that they feel more and more relaxed during treatment. This is a common benefit received after treatment.
Acupuncture treatments are usually performed over the course of a few weeks or months, depending on the condition treated.
