General Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the art of inserting filiform needles into the skin in order to facilitate balance and healing.  The points are chosen by utilizing a variety of diagnosis methods.  Most acupuncture points are located on meridians.  Meridians are the large rivers of energy that flow through your body.  Acupuncture points are where that energy pools and concentrates.  By stimulating those areas and and combining them with other points, the practitioner helps facilitate balance and healing.  The number of treatments needed to help each person varies depending on the main concern for treatment.  Sometimes, herbal teas may be necessary to resolve certain issues more effectively. These herbal treatments may include herbs that are in pill form, or possible raw and powdered for making tea. Diet therapy may also be advised to help in resolving certain illnesses. A standard series of treatments is between 3-15 sessions.
