Naturopathic Therapies ~ CHINESE MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles through the
skin into the underlying fat or muscle layers at specific points on the body called acupuncture points. The
treatment is used to correct energetic imbalances, stimulate nerve endings, and relax tense muscles.
Acupuncture may be used for many different health conditions including:
Stress / Anxiety / Depression
Muscle & Joint pain
Hormonal disorders, including menopause
Diabetes, including loss of sensation
What to expect:
An average of 8-12 needles are inserted, and are retained in the
body for approximately 20 minutes. The needles are then
removed and the treatment is complete. Acupuncture is
typically performed 1-2 times per week with each treatment
building on the last.
When performed correctly, acupuncture is not painful.
Most people feel a prick like a mosquito bite when the needle is
inserted. While the needle is in, the patient may feel tingling or
numbness at the site, or not be aware of the needle's presence
The needles are sterile and are discarded after each use.
With the patient's consent, a low-voltage electrical current may
be applied to some needles in order to stimulate certain points
