Acupuncture Beyond_Wellness-Practitioner-Penny_Will

Acupuncture is a complete medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, manage chronic disorders, alleviate pain, and promote health through prevention and maintenance. It can be used for physical, emotional, and psychological problems.

Traditional Asian acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese theories of the flow of qi (a fine, essential substance which nourishes and constructs the body) through distinct channels that cover the body somewhat like the nerves and blood vessels. According to this theory, acupuncture adjusts the flow of qi in the body, leading it to areas where it is insufficient and draining it from areas where it is stuck and or superabundant. In this way, acupuncture restores the harmonious balance of the body and its parts. In Chinese there is a saying, “If there is pain, there is no free flow; if there is free flow, there is no pain.” Acupuncture promotes and reestablishes the flow of qi.

What to expect during a session?

Expect a clean, comfortable, professional office where privacy and confidentiality are maintained. Acupuncture needles are typically not much thicker than a hair, and their insertion is practically painless. It is nothing like receiving an ordinary injection. In some cases, you will not even know the needles are in place. In others, there may be some tingling, warmth, heaviness, or a feeling of the qi moving up and down channels. Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing.

Sessions cost $75
