Acupuncture has been in practice for over 2,000 years. It is one of the oldest known medicines. It is a system of medicine that is based on balancing imbalances in the body, in the mind and in the spirit. These imbalances are caused by blockages in the free flow of Qi (energy) and blood. An acupuncturist uses fine sterile thin needles which are gently placed in specific Acu-points in the body to stimulate the body's own healing properties and promote the free flow of energy.
As trained acupuncturists, we will review your medical history, gather information on current/chronic imbalances, check your pulse, look at your tongue and palpate meridian channels and points. This usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes. Once these steps are completed, you will then lie down or sit if you prefer and treatment will start.
The treatment can consist of one or more of these modalities: acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, Gua-sha, electrical stimulation, Tuina (Chinese massage) and heat therapy. It is normal to feel the needles and to be aware of them, but you should not feel any painful or unpleasantness. You may experience: movement in your body, tingling feeling, heaviness at the needle site, warmth or coolness. This is fine. It just means that the needles are doing what they are supposed to do.
It is best to have a meal about one hour or more before an acupuncture treatment.
Please wear loose-fitting clothing. The treatment may last approximately 60 minutes.
