Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Acupuncture?
Thousands of years ago in China, a complementary medical practice was developed to alleviate pain and help treat various health conditions. This practice, which is commonly known as acupuncture, promotes natural healing to patients. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Acupuncture entails stimulating certain points in the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin. The needle is smaller than the size of a single hair. It enhances power and immunity, supports physical and emotional health, and improves overall function and well-being
Will My Acupuncturist Do?
What Will My Acupuncturist Do?
The acupuncturist will take your full medical history during the initial exam. She will ask questions regarding symptoms, health, and lifestyle. The doctor will also check your pulse and tongue and conduct a physical exam if needed. Then, the diagnosis will be used to identify where the Qi is blocked or imbalanced.
What Is Qi?
Qi (chee) is the vital energy that flows throughout your body. The acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on your body. This activates your body’s qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing your recuperative power, immunity, and physical and emotional health.
Why Do They Take My Pulse?
Your doctor will palpate 12 pulse positions on each wrist. Each position corresponds to a specific meridian and organ. She will look for 27 individual quantities that affect your overall health and the problems will appear on your pulse.
Why Do They Want to Look At My Tongue?
The tongue is a map of the body, so it reflects the general health of the organs and meridians. Your acupuncturist will look at the color, shape, cracks, and coating on your tongue.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
It depends on a variety of factors including your constitution, severity and duration of problem, and the quality and/or quantity of your qi. Some patients experience immediate relief, while others take months or even years to achieve results.
We advise that you plan a minimum of one month to see significant changes. An acupuncturist may suggest one or two treatments per week or monthly visits for health maintenance and seasonal tune-ups.

A form of Asian bodywork, Tuina massage uses touch to balance the body energy system. Tuina uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, as well as a number of techniques that manipulate and lubricate the joints of the body.
Similar to acupressure, Tuina directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body acupressure points. It also balances your energy.
This is the practice that applies pressure to flex zones on your feet, hands, or outer ears. Reflexology is great for patients suffering from plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries, or everyday work and play.
Developed in China in the 1930s, it is a form of acupuncture where small electric currents are passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. Electrical acupuncture is used to treat pain, spams, paralysis, and neurological diseases.
The process involves insertion of needles with small electrodes attached. The electrode provides a gentle vibration that stimulates the qi running through these points in the body.
