Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment

During the first visit before the initial appointment, clients usually complete a health history questionnaire.  Then the acupuncturist interviews the client, asking about his or her primary health concern, lifestyle habits, diet, emotions, menstrual cycle, sleep, temperature, appetite, stress, and sensitivity to foods, temperature, and seasons.

During the interview, the acupuncturist examines the client carefully, noting his or her face color, voice, and tongue color and coating.  There are also three pulse points at the wrist of each hand that the acupuncturist will assess to further determine the health of the 12 meridians.  Usually the first treatment lasts an hour and a half or so, including the acupuncture treatment.  In your subsequent visits we’ll make a short review of your progress followed by an acupuncture treatment. If it’s warranted, we also prescribe an herbal formula.

Herbs are nearly always prescribed in a balanced formula, where different herbs have supporting effects.  Thousands of years of use and research have shown that this is far more effective than large doses of a single substance.

Typically acupuncture treatments are given up to 3 times per week until the condition starts to come under control. The exact duration of treatment depends on the condition, your basic level of health, and how well you respond to acupuncture.

  • Herb and Nutritional counseling sessions are available for those who do not want, or need, acupuncture.
  • For those that are needle-phobic, we provide a non insertive needle treatment using the "Acutron". A machine that incorporates micro-current energy, laser & color therapy & acupressure. We can treat almost every ailment with it. Very popular with children, beauty and pain treatments.
