Acupuncture can treat a wide array of conditions either in a supportive role or as a primary treatment modality.
Most individuals seek out an acupuncturist for the treatment of Pain, especially of the back and joints. Pain can be acute in nature, perhaps resulting from sports or other injuries, or long-term and chronic. The most common conditions treated are headaches, muscular-skeletal conditions (e.g. joints, back, neck, etc.), tingling, numbness, burning and itchiness. In addition to pain, acupuncture treatments can be designed to address Internal or Systemic Disorders. Systemic disorders are those affecting the digestive, respiratory, immune, or other body systems. Both pain and systemic conditions can lead to Health and Stress related disorders, which can also be effectively treated. Specific characteristics of the stress related conditions can present as anxiety, irritability, anger, lack of motivation, insomnia, etc.
We follow Applied Channel Acupuncture with Balance Method treatments. We work with you to logically determine acupuncture locations for focused, individualized treatments. Treatments can be designed to address localized conditions affecting single areas or whole body systems for general health and quality of life. Our treatments stimulate blood flow, relax and assist in the repair of muscles and tendons and support the body’s natural healing systems.
Western medicine’s primary emphasis adheres to a paradigm of health which analyzes and describes conditions and injuries in terms of distinct, isolated components (e.g. low testosterone, high cholesterol, thyroid disease, heart disease, etc.). In contrast, Chinese medicine approaches health through a functional system understanding. In our treatments, we consider the importance of separate body systems and evaluate symptoms that correspond to an overall pattern of imbalance. Guiding Principles of the Balance Method:
It is important to receive regular treatment to both recover from physical injury and to support your overall health activities. Many Western clinics fail to recognize what is commonplace in China - Clinical experience shows receiving more frequent treatments results in a quicker resolution of an issue or condition. Unfortunately, the one-time-per-week approach has become ingrained in the United States due to acupuncture schools. This approach can work, but it can require more treatments over a longer period of time. Resolving a condition can end up costing more in the long run than it would have with more frequent treatment.
We offer individual treatments as well as Five and Ten Session treatment packages which reduce the per session cost.
