Acupuncture is the use of very fine needles, inserted at specific points on the body to stimulate, and regulate the flow of energy, and restore a healthy balance. It is a key component to Traditional Chinese Medicine,
Acupuncturists believe that a an energy called the “life force” (Qi) circulates within the body in lines called meridians.

Acupuncture is believed to have originated around 100 BC. A typical session entails lying still while needles are inserted and generally painless for most. For the majority of cases, the needles will be left in place for ten to thirty minutes; and sometimes longer. Some practitioners use it in conjunction with other healing methods including heat, pressure, light therapy, herbs or cupping. There is also a non-invasive therapy developed in early 20th century Japan using instruments other than needles for the treatment of children called Shonishin.

Before each treatment your Acupuncturist will usually do an inspection; focuses on the face/tongue, including analysis of the tongue (size, shape, tension, color and coating, ect.) They may take into account particular sounds such as wheezing, as well as observing body odor. They may ask about your appetite, thirst and taste; defecation and urination; pain; sleep; and menstruation.  Palpating tender points and feeling the pulse are also part of the inspection. 

In addition to its relaxation effect, acupuncture is also used for:

  • treating pain
  • infertility
  • insomnia
  • morning sickness
  • many acute, chronic, and degenerative conditions in people of any age
  • high blood pressure
  • digestive upset
