We understand that chronic back pain may cause weight gain, anxiety and stress. It is most important to make a correct diagnosis. We consult, Examine and form a treatment plan specific to your condition.

Most patients respond very well  to acupuncture even after the first session. We have found that it takes about 10 sessions over a period of 3 months to see the benefit with most conditions.

The Acupuncturist will evaluate with   a traditional pulse and tongue diagnosis.  Next, she will evaluate the 12 pulse points on your wrists and check you tongue to diagnose your condition. A treatment plan is made that may include herbal remedies and other modalities such as moxibustion and cupping.  The result is to achieve balance in the meridian organ systems. In other words, the body chemistry will become more balanced and symptoms will disappear.

Anxiety, Stress and Fibromyalgia

Pain, fatigue, tingling, and other fibromyalgia symptoms commonly trigger  panic attacks. The anxiety creates stress which has a powerful effect on the hormones in your body. This affects the immune system and triggers an inflammatory response to many allergens.

Studies have shown that acupuncture results are as effective as antidepressants. It may help treat the medications’ side effects, balance hormones and release endorphins to make you feel better.

 

Acupuncture needles

In general the needles are so fine that they do not induce pain as associated with traditional western medicine. Most patients report falling into a deep sleep or a very relaxed state during the 25 minute session.

 

NO Needle Acupuncture

For those who are afraid of the needles yet want the effects of an acupuncture treatment, our Acupuncturists offer a no needle treatment. This consists of a traditional tongue and pulse diagnosis, an acupressure massage coupled with tuning fork meridian therapy, laser stim, cupping, tui-na or gua-sha muscle therapy.  Stimulation of the points in this way is just as effective as using  needles.
