Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for dozens of  conditions.


Much of the philosophy and treatment strategies in Traditional Chinese Medicine are based in Taoism. You may be familiar with one of the oldest symbols of Taoism:  the Yin/Yang Symbol. 




This image symbolizes how seemingly opposing or separate forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, giving rise to each other in turn. For example:  In the darkest of night the dawn is born.  One cannot exist without the other.  All of nature is connected and dependent on each other. 


Acupuncture is a very safe form of ancient medicine with at least 2500 years of documented treatment strategies and experiences. It has been endorsed by both the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization.

 

“Health, from a traditional Chinese perspective, is harmony: a sense of balance and ease. Qi [an active principle forming part of any living thing] is supposed to flow throughout the body; when it doesn’t, obstruction or stagnation causes pain, dysfunction, and disease. Unlike Western medicine, which sees health mostly as an absence of pathogens, Chinese medicine imagines a dynamic order which can be nurtured, supported, and cultivated.”  The Remedy by Lisa Rohleder 


Acupuncture is an inexpensive, non pharmaceutical therapy that reduces pain, inflammation and stress, improves sleep, energy and mood.


Aside from acupuncture (the insertion of needles, that are as thin as a hair, at points along meridians of energy to encourage the body to heal itself), there are eight other natural modalities that are used to help you achieve balance.  Some of those key modalities that support total wellness are exercise, herbal remedies and nutrition and diet.


Your acupuncturist will work with you on the best strategy for attaining a sense and experience of balance. 


Treatment Frequency

The acupuncturist may recommend that you be seen multiple times in a week. In this case the acupuncturist may suggest that the patient pay what they can for the week and when visits are less frequent, return to the fee structure.

The following are suggestions for the frequency of treatments based on your pain level, symptoms and the chronic nature of your imbalances.

Pain Levels:

  • If your pain is 10 out of 10 or you feel you are at the end of your rope, I suggest coming in every day until we see some change, and pay whatever you can until we can reduce the pain level.
  • 5 out of 10 or over, preferably 3 times a week, no less than 2.

Symptoms/Conditions:

  • PMS, endometriosis, menstrual cycle related stuff: weekly until you have a cycle that's OK, and then every other week until 2 OK cycles, then once a month in the week before the problem week. 
  • Most other issues: weekly until 50% improvement, and then every other week until resolution.  What's 50% improvement? "If the problem you came in with were a pie, how much of the pie would be eaten at this point?  Half?  A quarter?"
  • Macular Degeneration:  2 cycles of 2 treatments a day, 2 days a week for 12 treatments. Then we reassess the improvements made and complete on more cycle.  2 cycles of 12 treatments is recommended and then a month of rest before we do another 2 cycles. 

Chronic Symptoms:

  • Symptoms that aren’t severe, once a week for 6-8 weeks and re-evaluate.
  • Really long-term chronic stuff, once a week for 10 weeks or twice a week for 5 weeks.
    • Chronic conditions with a very poor prognosis -- weekly indefinitely. For these long-term “knotty” problems please understand the difference between symptom management and cure.
  • Chronic Stress: once a week until the stress subsides, meaning that the evil boss quits, the deadbeat husband gets a clue, the sick kid gets better, or you find different ways to cope -- meaning, possibly indefinite treatment. Please understand that your life may be the problem and in a lot of cases your life may not change anytime soon but your coping methods can. ​
