  Common Questions:

  • What is acupuncture?
    Acupuncture originated in China over 3000 years ago.  Today it is used for preventative care, health maintenance, and treatment of disease.  There are several hundred acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by pathways called meridians.  These meridians conduct Bioelectrical energy or Qi (pronounced "chee") between the surface of the body and its internal organs.

    Acupuncturists insert very thin, fine needles into the skin at different points to access and redirect the Qi and prompt the body to self healing.  Acupuncture has been shown to affect the release of neurotransmitterers and endorphins, improve circulation, decrease inflammation, and stimulate the immune system.

  • Does acupuncture hurt?
    Acupuncture needles are very fine - about the thickness of cat whiskers.  Because the diameter of the needle is so thin, there is usually little or no discomfort associated with the treatment.

  • Is acupuncture safe?
    For the safety of our patients, only sterilized, single use, disposable needles are used in our clinic.

  • What can acupuncture treat?
    The World Health Organization officially recognizes acupuncture as suitable for many common clinical disorders.  Some of the conditions that are commonly treated with acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine include:

    • Musculoskeletal Disorders - Low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, joint pain, injuries, numbness and tingling, TMJ, muscular aches and pains and chronic fatigue.

    • Emotional and nervous disorders - Depression, anxiety, grief, nervous tension, insomnia, low energy, and post traumatic stress disorder.

    • Disorders of the nervous system - Bell's Palsy, post-stroke conditions, chronic headaches, and addictions.

    • Gastrointestinal disorders - Indigestion, pain, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, eating disorders, and hepatitis.

    • Genito/Urinal disorders - Irregular, heavy or painful menstruation, premenstrual syndrome, menopausal problems, urinary tract problems, sexual dysfunction, infertility, and benign prostate hyperplasia.

    • Pregnancy-related complaints - "Morning sickness", fatigue, breech presentation.

    • Cardio/Respiratory disorders - Frequent colds, coughs, asthma, allergies, palpitations, and heart disease.

    • Supportive treatment for patients undergoing cancer treatment, chemotherapy and radiation.
