What is

Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is part of a system of holistic medicine, in which thin, filiform needles are inserted at specific, strategic points on the body. Their insertion is meant to induce a series of reactions within your body, in order to help the condition for which you came in for as well as help to reset the body's parasympathetic nervous system for overall well-being. Nothing is injected into your body. Acupuncture is only one tool of Traditional Chinese Medicine that may be used to help alleviate your condition or help support your overall health.

How many sessions will it take?

This depends on the condition that the patient is coming in for and their underlying health. More recent conditions tend to respond sooner. However, the healthier a lifestyle the patient already has, the quicker the treatments may take hold. It is also important that the patient follow any recommendations given by the practitioner, that are to enhance and quicken results. Ultimately, while most patients feel a sense of relaxation at the end of the first treatment, it can take a few sessions for a couple of weeks to really address both the root and symptoms of the condition(s).
