Acupuncture, a key component of traditional Chinese medicine has been used for at least 2500 years. It is a technique where a practitioner stimulates specific points to treat chronic pain, infertility, PMS, sinus problems, sleep apnea and even acne with thin needles. Some patients experience a change in their condition after just one visit, while others may require additional treatments to build on the previous treatment.
The first appointment involves a discussion of the medical history and a physical, which determines which points require stimulation. Each treatment can range between 20 to 40 minutes and are often found to be a time of relaxation and comfort. To prepare for treatment, patients are encouraged to consume food before, while drinking plenty of water before and after treatment.
