Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a key component in Traditional Chinese Medicine and one of the most commonly used medical procedures in the world. During your initial acupuncture session, the acupuncturist will spend over an hour reviewing your medical history and health concerns to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Acupuncture treatments are designed to address the underlying physiological cause of each condition and are customized according to each client’s unique health history. Adjunctive acupuncture therapies include electro-acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, nutritional counseling, functional medicine testing, cupping, gua sha, and tui na.

Research has also shown acupuncture to be effective for the treatment of a wide variety of health conditions including anxiety, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, high blood pressure, insomnia, migraines, seasonal allergies, as well as smoking cessation. Acupuncture has also been shown to be effective for several chronic pain and orthopedic disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative disc disease, low back pain, rotator cuff injuries, and knee osteoarthritis.

Acupuncture is an important treatment modality for several women’s health conditions including amenorrhea, endometriosis, fibroids, hot flashes and menopausal symptoms, infertility, irregular periods, painful periods, pelvic pain, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Researchers have suggested that acupuncture may regulate the nervous system, aid the activity of endorphins and immune system cells, decrease inflammation in the body, or alter brain chemistry by changing the release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones.
