Acupuncture

What Can I Expect From My Treatment?

     Most patients report a calm feeling and some fall asleep during the treatment.  After the removal of needles the qi continues you to balance itself, as such it is common to feel hungry or tired.  Usually patients experience an overall sense of well being.  The best thing to do is to be kind to yourself after treatment and enjoy the experience.

How Do I Prepare For Acupuncture?

     Wear loose comfortable clothing that the legs and arms can be exposed.   Make sure you have eaten a little meal before treatment.   Tell the practioner any changes in your health prior to treatment.

Acupuncture is a noninvasive medical system used to activate the body's Qi. Thin sterile needles are placed into the body at specific acupuncture points to promote healing and overall well being. Pressure, heat or electrical stimulation on the acupuncture points may enhance the treatment.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
