Acupuncture

The painless application of hair-thin needles affects channels of energy allowing the body to balance itself and restore health.

 

FAQ’S

What conditions can be treated by acupuncture?

Many conditions can be treated. Among the most responsive are: musculo/skeletal problems such as sciatica, low back pain and arthritis; menopausal symptoms, premenstrual syndrome, infertility, endometriosis, morning sickness; circulatory problems like high or low blood pressure, cold hands and feet; nervous system imbalances, especially anxiety, nervousness, sleeplessness or depression; ADD/ADHD; asthma, allergies and sinus problems; and digestive disorders including Crohn's Disease, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea and constipation. In addition, we often treat headaches, vertigo, sports and stress injuries, skin problems, immune system disorders, fatigue, chronic pain and side effects from chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Acupuncture has been found to be especially useful for detoxification from addictive substances such as drugs, alcohol, cocaine, caffeine and cigarettes.

 

How does acupuncture help healthy people?

Acupuncture is helpful in the prevention of disease by improving the patient's state of well being through energy balance. This way, the stresses of everyday life are more easily handled, and minor health issues can be resolved before they become more deeply rooted problems.

 

Does acupuncture hurt?

Minimal discomfort, if any, can be expected during an acupuncture treatment. Our needles are extremely thin and flexible. Many people are surprised to learn that seven acupuncture needles can fit inside the shaft of one hypodermic needle. Although sensation can be felt on the skin’s surface during needling, most would not describe it as pain. In fact, many patients enjoy the sensation.

 

Will acupuncture benefit someone who is very skeptical?

Yes. The healing process will not be affected in any way by the patient's skeptical attitude.

 

Is acupuncture effective on children?

There is no age limit. Often, young children respond quite well to moxa alone or with a very minimal use of needles. There are also special pediatric acupuncture devices which merely tap the skin surface and are quite painless.

 

Will my acupuncture treatments be covered by medical insurance?

Payment in full is requested at the time of treatment either by check, debit, major credit card, (we accept Visa, MasterCard), or cash. Many of our patients receive reimbursement from their insurance companies. It is best to consult your insurance company before making an appointment to determine the specifics of your coverage. We will assist you by providing itemized receipts.
