Chinese traditional medicine includes acupuncture as one of its most commonly used therapies. Acupuncture is the art of inserting fine sterile metal needles into certain body or ear points to readjust the body’s Qi (vital energy) in order to allow the body to heal itself.
After a Chinese traditional medicine diagnosis is given for a client, an acupuncture treatment plan is developed considering the overall nature of the disease, the individual presenting complaints, as well as any underlying constitutional Chinese traditional medicine patterns of illness. On a symptomatic level, acupuncture treatment may address the digestive functions, appetite, energy level, stress/anxiety/depression, pain associated with organic illness, and other complications.
Acupuncture is relatively painless, often accompanied with a heavy sensation, warmth, or movement of energy at the point of insertion or along the energy channels. Acupuncture relieves pain and rebalances energy to help heal symptoms. All acupuncture performed with sterile one-time use needles only.
When you call for an appointment, let the receptionist know if you will be paying cash or using insurance benefits for your treatment. If you have insurance, we will check with your insurance company to see if you have coverage for acupuncture and let you know the amount of copay and any other fees that you will be charged. If you do not have insurance, we will work with you to arrange a fee that will fit your budget and address your health needs. Our commitment is to provide services that are affordable for people who do not have health insurance or have a set income.
