Acupuncture originated in China around 3,500 years ago and remains one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. It heals by balancing energy within the body - using "points" located along various energetic pathways called "meridians."
Acupuncture involves the placement of hair-thin needles on the body. In most cases, these points are retained for 20-30 minutes (but in some cases, such as pediatric sessions or during labor, the points are not retained at all). While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in most of our patients feel a sense of deep relaxation, & even sleepiness!
Acupuncture is an excellent tool for preventing illness and promoting an overall sense of well-being. It can also be used to support the following conditions:

What To Expect
At your Initial Session, I'll conduct a detailed holistic health history to help determine the best way to support you. From there we will discuss a treatment strategy - including herbal, supplement and nutritional support - as well as how many sessions are necessary to achieve your goals. Follow-up sessions will include a 10-15 minute health intake to review any changes in your health or questions you might have.
After your consultation is complete, you'll receive an acupuncture treatment for 25-35 minutes. Your treatment will take place in a private room, with you laying down on a treatment table (either face-up or face-down, depending on the nature of your care). Acupuncture needles will be gently placed in various spots around the body, and appropriate draping towels are available for your discretion. I'll be communicating with you for the duration of the insertion, adjusting any discomfort and explaining the meaning behind certain sensations.
Once you are comfortable, I'll leave the room for 20-30 minutes and let you rest. Typically, I'll check on you once during that time to make sure you are still comfortable. After the session, all points will be swiftly removed and you can get ready to leave.
Before you leave it is wise to have your follow-up session scheduled. I am available by email in between sessions, should questions or concerns arise at any time.
