Acupuncture Description & Benefits

 
Traditional Chinese Medicine
 

Here is what to expect at your first
Acupuncture visit:

Our first meeting is 90 minutes, and will consist of time spent reviewing your completed new patient paperwork, diving deeper into areas of particular concern through curious questioning, a physical assessment, and treatment.  During  this intake discussion, I will be using a combination of channel and abdominal palpation, pulse and tongue diagnosis, with structural assessment to carefully craft a treatment to meet the needs of your body in that moment. ​Please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing, and be sure to have eaten a meal the day of your appointment!


A treatment may consist of one or a combination of therapeutic modalities including:

-Acupuncture/Acupressure

-Cranial-sacral

-Bodywork

-Moxibustion

-Cupping [dry or wet]

-Facial rejuvenation

-Meditation and Visualization

-Guided Breathing

-Qi gong

-Food as Medicine recommendations

Each therapeutic modality is chosen at the discretion of the practitioner, but please communicate your interests!

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of very fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body.  Often times patients experience a state of openness and ease throughout their bodies during the treatment, and seldom describe any pain sensation. Some points may be more subject to feeling the insertion of the needle more than others, but we can work together through breath and awareness to create a comfortable experience.  I utilize a Japanese style of needling, which is very gentle and minimally invasive.

Acupuncture can have a profound effect  on changing the terrain of your body that may lead to relief of symptom, dis-ease, or pain patterns.
