Chinese medicine incorporates many different modalities: Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping, eStim, Acupressure, Tui Na & Herbal Medicine
While we know Chinese medicine to be generally accepted as less invasive than many other forms of health treatment, there are still some side-effects and risks.
We use a private telemedicine tool, an electronic health record (EHR) and online services to fill herb and supplement recommendations.
We tell patients that it will take 1 month of treatment for every year they have had symptoms. Some heal quicker than others and results are usually more dramatic at the beginning of a course of treatment. Appointments last 45-90 minutes.
Acupuncture needles trigger electrical and chemical cascade processes in your body that allow it to more freely return to its goal of homeostasis.
What does it fee like? There are many different sensations that a person may experience when having acupuncture. Needle insertion is commonly painless although you may feel a brief pinch that quickly subsides once the needle is in place. You may also feel tingling, heaviness, warmth or nothing at all. If you are feeling something unexpected or uncomfortable, you should inform the doctor so that an adjustment can be made and you can enjoy the rest of your treatment.
Everyone! Acupuncture and traditional medicine excel at keeping people healthy and easing the symptoms of chronic illness. We specialize in family medicine which means that we treat everyone from infants to seniors.
