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 performed on a massage table, recliner, or in the comfort of your home. Acupuncture stimulates endorphin release. Endorphins help the body go into a state of deep relaxation to aid healing.
There are a multitude of acupuncture techniques from thousands of years of accumulation of knowledge. An Acupuncturist may start a treatment course with one technique and move to another depending on each patient’s response. 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 treatment per week for 2-3 weeks to solidify results. 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. The beginning of a treatment process is important to build momentum of the healing process. The closer in time the treatments are to each other, the faster the speed of healing.
