What is Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture?
Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture have been the widely accepted and used medicine and healing therapy in China as well as most Asian countries for thousands of years. Its’ effective in treating the root and causes of diseases and disorders have notable results and effects by utilizing the human body’s own resources and ability to heal itself. Chinese medicine is a very safe, minimally invasive, systematic, and holistic approach for treating many disorders and illnesses. The approach to healing the body begins with finding out the underlying imbalance of the body from a physical, emotional, and spiritual view and finding a way to bring balance back to the body in each of those areas to achieve maximum health and wellness.
Acupuncture is one of the prime modalities of Chinese Medicine that utilizes the insertion and retention of very fine filiform needles into very specific points on the body that work synergistically with each other to stimulate, restart, and reconfigure the way the body should begin the healing process for any and all health conditions.
What can Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treat, and does it work?
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment modality for many conditions, including:
- Musculoskeletal Disorders (Low back pain, carpal tunnel, arthritis, tennis elbow and TMJ)
- Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders (Toothache, earache, sinusitis, rhinitis, and laryngitis)
- Respiratory Disorders (Colds and flu’s, bronchitis, asthma, allergies and emphysema)
- Circulatory Disorders (Hypertension, high cholesterol, artherosclerosis)
- Gastrointestinal Disorders (Food allergies, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome)

- Gynecological Disorders (Irregular menses, Endometriosis, PMS, infertility, menopausal syndrome, fibroids)

What should I expect to feel after my Acupuncture treatment?
Each person’s body and health are different, and their disorders and symptoms also manifest themselves differently from one person to the next. The same philosophy goes for how people react to Acupuncture. The most common and notable things that people experience after their session can include:
- Light-headedness or drowsiness
- Relaxation or a surge of energy
- Tension and stress reduction
- Improved and more fulfilling sleep
- Improved digestion and appetite
- Relief of pain symptoms, if any
What does Acupuncture feel like?
Acupuncture needles are very thin, filiform needles that are finer than a strand of hair. The insertion if quick and most often painless.
The manipulation of the needles after insertion is used to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment, and patients often report either:
- A tingling numb feeling
- A warm sensation
- A traveling feeling up or down their body
- A dull and heavy sensation
Any and all of these sensations are what can indicate that the needles are properly stimulating the acupuncture points.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on the ability of the person’s body to:
- Respond to the needles and begin the healing process.
- The severity and duration of the illness or condition. Most acute conditions will only require 1 – 3 treatments, while more chronic conditions can take anywhere from 5 – 15 weeks of treatment.
