|What Health Issues
can Acupuncture Treat?
ACUPUNCTUREThe purpose of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is to return flow of energy and blood back to normal and to reinstate optimal organ function. This will, in turn, restore function to the affected area and the body will begin to heal itself. If detected early, organ malfunction and blood and/or energy stagnation may respond well to Oriental Medicine leading to an excellent chance for a complete and painless recovery.
Meet Your Acupuncturists...
The goal of corrective care is the removal or reduction of the cause of your problem, allowing the relief or removal of the symptoms. To accomplish correction your Acupuncturist analyzes your individual needs and develops a plan to help you reach this goal. Along the way your Acupuncturist will check to see how your body is progressing and that the cause of your problem, if not yet completely eliminated, is well under control.

There are many methods of measuring your progress. Your symptoms may disappear or return and, therefore, are not safe measures of the correction of your problem. To consider the injured area corrected, authorities say a person's symptoms must be gone and not return for at least 12 months. To ensure achievement of your goal, correction of the cause of your problem, your Acupuncturist will check you regularly to see that your organs are becoming more balanced and that the blocked Qi in the meridians has been reduced. Your Acupuncturist will explain to you how you will be checked and kept up to date on your progress. If you are balanced and free from Qi blockage on several consecutive visits, your Acupuncturist will reduce the frequency with which he sees you.
IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE?
Yes. The sterile, stainless steel needles used at our clinic are of the highest quality. The areas on your body used in treatment will be cleaned in advance with a cotton ball saturated with foodgrade ethyl alcohol. You may experience two sensations with acupuncture: the insertion (which may feel like a mosquito bite), and the arrival of energy at the tip of the needle (which may feel achy, distending, warm, electric... each person has a unique experience).
