Before the initial exam, a full health history is reported by the patient. In-person, questions are asked regarding your current primary complaint, your pain locations, and other health, symptoms, and lifestyle.
Gathering this information enables the practitioner to effectively diagnose and detect any specific imbalances in the body that enable pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. The practitioner can then create a well-structured treatment plan.
Once you enter the treatment room and take a comfortable seat, the acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints along meridian pathways. This safe and painless insertion of the needles can unblock the obstruction and balance. Once this is done, blood and lymph can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues, and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a safe, effective, and drug-free therapy that can help address a wide variety of common ailments and problems.
