Initial Visit Acupuncture
One of the most widely used therapies in the world.
Acupuncture uses hair-thin, solid, sterile (one time use), disposable, pain free needles to
stimulate specific areas of the body to for the benefit of balancing health and wellbeing.
Acupuncture treatment is done on a massage table, recliner, or in the comfort of your home. It is
extremely relaxing because of the endorphin release that happens while resting during a
treatment. Most people take a nap or experience deep relaxation.
For most conditions expect 2
treatments per week for 2-3 weeks to start the process. Once goals are met then treatment is
reduced to 1 per week for 2-3 weeks to solidify results. This is the average amount of treatment
needed. Some people need less, some people need more, some people need occasional
maintenance treatments; monthly or seasonal depending on the individual. Point being, we all
have our own timeline of healing response. Acupuncture works for about 80-90% of people if
enough treatments are received within a short amount of time.
Cupping is the application of suction cups usually for pain relief or
to help recover from pathogens such as those responsible for common colds. There are
many types of cupping but most leave round hickey looking marks for a few days to a week or 2,
depending on individual speed of healing. The marks are not painful. They may be slightly
tender the day of the treatment. Cupping feels like a brief deep massage (5-15 minutes). It is a
wonderful muscle tension reliever.
