How Treatment Works

To treat any energy imbalances we use fine, sterile needles which are inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. We will concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms.


We may include other related therapies in your treatment plan, such as laser, Acu-graph, cupping, or moxibustion. Herbal remedies are another important aspect of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine, and it is important to understand and follow directions in order to get the most benefit from these treatments.

Your role in the healing process

12 to 24 hours after your treatment be kind to yourself!! As many patients feel good following treatment but they are still in the early days of healing. Your actions are a key component of your treatment plan.


Focusing on your health and committing to a healthy lifestyle are the best steps you can take for your well-being. Together, you and your acupuncturist can heal your imbalances and help you achieve harmony and balance.

Prevention is better than the cure, come when you are well not when you are already sick or out of balance.


Even after your symptoms are resolved, acupuncture can assist you in maintaining your health, and possibly prevent future imbalances. Coming at the change of each season is very good for prevention of illness, colds and flus and immunity.

Acupuncture is not an instant fix

Good things can take time, we all heal differently, there are many factors for this.


True healing takes time and dedication. Depending on your current health and symptoms, you could feel better right away, or you may need treatments for weeks, months or years to achieve the results you want. We can give you an idea of what to expect. With a little patience and an open mind, you’ll be on your way to health and vitality.


Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine offer a safe and effective holistic health care system. This natural approach can both resolve symptoms and enhance your overall health. Working on the key principles of health you can be on the road to a healthier person, with more energy and less pain and stress.
