Your Treatment.

Each practitioner creates an individual treatment plan for each patient based on tongue and pulse diagnosis, observations and an in-depth interview. Acupuncture therapy uses very tiny sterile disposable needles. The procedure for most people is painless. Some people explain the insertion sensation as feeling a calming heaviness, pinch, warm, slight tingling, electrical or light tapping on the surface of their skin  which lasts a few seconds. Needles stay in usually from 20 to 45 minutes depending on the condition or disease pattern.  Most people feel very relaxed, warm and rested during the treatment. Acupuncture has proven itself to be a safe, effective and reasonably priced means for people to gain and maintain balance in their body and live healthier happier lives.
