What is Acupuncture?
In the Traditional Chinese Medicine system, the body’s internal condition is a delicate balance of two opposing but interconnected forces – the yin and yang.
Traditional Chinese Medicine describes as much as 356 mapped points situated on meridians or channels of energy flow on the surface of our body. Chinese medicine claims that there are 12 principal meridians and 8 supplementary meridians and that there are more than 2,000 acupoints on the body that connect with them. Interestingly, the correlations are consistent with clinical observations and findings that have existed for hundreds of years. Fine needles (32-36 gauge) are inserted into body areas called acupoints.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the needles can influence the flow of energy in the meridians that form a network over and inside the body. These meridians work to regulate and support bodily functions.
How It Works
Fine, hair-thin and soft stainless steel needles (single-use) are inserted to a depth of 4-25 mm and left in place for a prescribed period (from a few seconds to several minutes). Generally, 6 – 12 needles (and sometimes more) are inserted at several acupoints.

Q1: Is acupuncture painful?

Q2: Do western medical doctors approve of acupuncture?
A2: Yes. There are approximately 6,500 licensed acupuncturists in the U.S. In addition, the World Health Organization currently recognizes more than 40 medical problems which can be helped by acupuncture treatment. The FDA regulates acupuncture needles as medical devices.
Q3: How do I prepare myself before an acupuncture session?
A3: The best way to prepare is to eat a snack or a light meal before treatment so the you body has sufficient energy to work with. If possible it is best to wear loose clothing so that your arms and legs are accessible for treatment. After treatment we recommend you drink a glass of water to help stabilize your energy.
Q4: Can I receive acupuncture when I am pregnant?
A4: Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy and can help relieve many pregnancy and postpartum conditions.
