What conditions are treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs?
Most health conditions can be corrected or improved through acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine’s ability to promote the body’s natural healing processes. Both treatment modalities are part of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s comprehensive system of preventative health care and health maintenance.
Some of the most common reasons for acupuncture treatment are:
How many treatments will I need?
Laura will develop an individualized treatment plan for your specific health needs. For most chronic conditions, a series of eight to ten treatments tends to offer the best outcome. You may notice an immediate improvement in your health after just one treatment, or a cumulative effect over several treatments.
What does acupuncture feel like?
The experience of acupuncture varies for each patient and with each practitioner. Some points can be a little sensitive, but most of the time patients are surprised at how painless acupuncture really is. Laura takes care to ensure your treatments are comfortable and gentle. Most patients are amazed by how relaxed they feel during acupuncture and afterwards.
Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is extremely safe when performed by a licensed practitioner. Acupuncture needles are disposed of in a sharps container after a single use. For certain conditions, acupuncture is the safest option when used as an alternative to surgery and/or prescription medications.
