acupuncture23Acupuncture
is a branch of Oriental medicine that involves the insertion of very thin, sterile needles into specific areas of the body and ear to relieve physical and emotional pain, promote mental relaxation and calm the spirit. Acupuncture balances internal energy, reduces muscle tension and promotes the release of unhealthy mental-emotional energy stored in the body. Acupuncture has virtually no side-effects, can be safely used in conjunction with Western medical protocols and excels in treating health issues that are not responding well to conventional therapies.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, two to three treatments each week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually 10 sessions is a reasonable average.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO THE TREATMENT?

Usually not. As energy is redirected in the body, internal chemicals and hormones are stimulated and healing begins to take place. Occasionally the original symptoms worsen for a few days, or other general changes in appetite, sleep, bowel or urination patterns, or emotional state may be triggered. These should not cause concern, as they are simply indications that the acupuncture is starting to work. It is quite common with the first one or two treatments to have a sensation of deep relaxation or even mild disorientation immediately following the treatment. These pass within a short time, and never require anything more than a bit of rest to overcome.

WHAT ARE THE NEEDLES LIKE? DO THEY HURT?

People experience acupuncture needling differently. Most patients feel only minimal pain as the needles are inserted; some feel no pain at all. Once the needles are in place, there is no pain felt. Acupuncture needles are very thin and solid and are made from stainless steel. The needle is smooth (not hollow with the cutting edges of a hypodermic needle) and insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. The risk of bruising and skin irritation is less than when using a hollow needle. Our office uses single-use-disposable acupuncture needles.


AT HEALTHIER YOU WELLNESS CENTER, EACH TREATMENT IS CUSTOM DESIGNED TO MEET OUR PATIENT'S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND PROVIDES THE UTMOST COMFORT AND CARE TO SUPPORT THE HEALING PROCESS.
