Acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the body, by inserting very thin needles that are manipulated by hand or by electrical or laser stimulation. Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body’s vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting & manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, I am able to return the body to its natural balance & promote the body’s ability to heal itself.


Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation.

When undergoing acupuncture, here’s what you can typically expect:

  1. Consultation: You’ll have an initial consultation with your acupuncturist to discuss your health concerns, medical history, and treatment goals. This allows the acupuncturist to tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs.
  2. Assessment: Your acupuncturist will assess your condition by examining your pulse, tongue, and other relevant indicators according to traditional Chinese medicine principles. This helps them determine the underlying imbalances in your body’s energy (Qi) and devise an appropriate treatment strategy.
  3. Treatment Preparation: You’ll be asked to lie down comfortably on a treatment table. Depending on the areas being treated, you may need to expose specific body parts, such as your back, arms, legs, or abdomen. Your acupuncturist may also provide you with a gown or draping for modesty.
  4. Acupuncture Treatment: Your acupuncturist will gently insert thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. You may feel a brief, mild sensation upon insertion, which is usually followed by a sensation of heaviness, tingling, warmth, or relaxation. The needles are typically left in place for about 20-30 minutes while you relax.
  5. Post-Treatment Sensations: After the needles are removed, you may experience various sensations, such as increased relaxation, improved mood, or relief from pain or discomfort. Some people may also feel slightly light-headed or sleepy immediately after treatment, so it’s advisable to take your time getting up from the table.
  6. Follow-Up Recommendations: Your acupuncturist may provide you with post-treatment recommendations, such as staying hydrated, avoiding strenuous activities, or incorporating specific lifestyle changes or self-care practices to support the effects of acupuncture.
  7. Results and Progress: The effects of acupuncture can vary depending on individual factors and the nature of your condition. Some people experience immediate relief or improvement after a single session, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired outcome. Your acupuncturist will monitor your progress and adjust the treatment plan accordingly to optimize results.

Overall, acupuncture offers a safe, gentle, and effective approach to promoting health and well-being by addressing imbalances in the body’s energy system. With regular treatments, many people experience improvements in their symptoms, enhanced overall health, and a greater sense of balance and vitality.

No! Acupuncture is a painless procedure. Most people barely feel anything when needles are inserted. The needles we use are very thin, about the size of a single hair.

Some sensations you may feel described as:

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment is necessary. For acute conditions you can expect to have 10 to 15 treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief after just the first few. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general wellbeing may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

Many first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won’t. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when our Acupuncturist inserts them. When she gently stimulates the needles they may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls de qi. Patients often describe de qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an “electrical” sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.
