FAQs

How does Acupuncture work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory developed over the past 2,000 years.  The theory is based on the principles of yin and yang.  Energy (qi) flows through channels between the surface of the body and internal organs.  Pain and disease are the result of these channels becoming blocked or out of balance.  By placing needles in one end of the channels, the health and balance of energy in the body can be restored.  In TCM theory, acupuncture increases the flow of energy and blood supply to a diseased area, thus increasing the nutrients, circulation, and overall health of the body.

 

The energetic channels overlap the nervous system and stimulation of specific points can send messages to the central nervous system and help to regulate the body.  Western Medical studies have shown that the placement of needles at specific points in the body can stimulate the release of neurotransmitters and hormones, such as endorphins and opioids (the body’s natural pain killers), as well as support and enhance the immune system.  

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture is not painful.  Many patients do not even feel the needles being inserted. The most common feeling during needling is of a light pressure and distention around the selected point, similar to a dull ache.  In fact, patients typically feel a deep relaxation and even drift off to sleep. 

What can I expect during and after a treatment?

During the initial appointment, we will go through your history and discuss concerns you may have regarding your health care.  A typical treatment takes about one hour.  Needles are inserted lightly into the selected points based on an individual's symptoms and patients rest quietly for about 30 minutes.  Other therapies may be utilized depending on the patients’ condition.  

Patients typically feel refreshed, energized, or relaxed after treatments and can go about their regular activities.  For some people the effect of treatment is felt immediately while others may take effect in the 24-48 hours following treatment as the body balances itself.  It is recommended that people make sure they drink plenty of water, abstain from overwork, strenuous exercise (a light workout is fine), and dietary overindulgence (alcohol) for the remainder of the day. 

How many times and how often do I need to come in for treatment? 

This depends on the severity and history of the patient.  Typically more severe and chronic conditions tend to require more treatments to rebalanced the body.  It is important to remember acupuncture and Chinese herbs are cumulative types of treatment, each treatment building upon the last.  In most cases treatments are weekly; however, in the beginning, if a condition is severe it may be necessary to have treatments spaced more closely together.  Once symptoms stabilize then frequency can be decreased and patients can come on an as needed basis.

Are Chinese herbal formulas safe and what is the purpose?

Chinese herbal formulas are very safe, have little to no side effects and are thoroughly tested.  Herbal formulas can be given to help quicken the recovery  process and promote overall health of the patient.  They help to correct internal imbalances of the body and can be specifically designed for each patient depending on their presenting symptoms.
