Acupuncture

WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years as part of a comprehensive system of medicine. It is safe, effective, and an increasingly clinically proven medical treatment for many diseases and health problems. It also is a preventative treatment that works to balance the body allowing the body to self-regulate. Hence it is a non-dependent medical treatment which means you do not need to continue when your symptoms go away.

Acupuncture can be effective at treating a wide range of concerns, including acute and chronic pain and illness, and emotional, physical, and energetic imbalances. It can also help you stay well by strengthening the immune system to prevent disease. Traditionally, Acupuncture was also used to harmonize the body during seasonal and life transitions, as an “Acupuncture tune-up for your body to run smoothly.”

Simply stated, Acupuncture is a holistic approach to the body in which health is regained and maintained by bringing the body into balance. Practitioners of Asian medicine view the body as a network of pathways, called channels, which connect with the body’s organs and other systems.

US trained Acupuncturists are required to have a pre-medicine background and a Bachelor's degree before embarking on a four years master's course of studies in Asian & Western medicine at an accredited Acupuncture School. Each state has different acupuncture regulations. In Massachusetts the Board of Registration of Medicine issues and monitors all Acupuncture licenses that are renewed every two years and require Continuing Education Hours.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

acuppuntureThe Practitioner begins by taking a detailed past medical history and listing of current symptoms, as well as, examining the client’s pulse, tongue and abdomen. When the assessment is complete a diagnosis is determined, a treatment plan is established and discussed with the client. The practitioner then inserts hair-thin, sterile disposable needles at specific points along the channels. In addition to feeling relief from the treatment people will often feel more relaxed as an added bonus.

Initial sessions generally take 1 to 1 ½ hours due to the History and Assessment process.

Follow-up treatments last approximately 1 hour.
