About Our Acupuncture Practice

Imagine a pill that could cure many illnesses, could make almost every condition better to a greater or lesser extent, was extremely safe, had no negative side effects whatsoever, was not addictive, and made even healthy people feel even better.  What if this pill could reduce or eliminate pain anywhere in the body, help a person lose weight or quit smoking, regulate a woman's menstrual cycle, help with sleep problems.   This would be hailed as a miracle.
Acupuncture Treatment
Well, now you know what ACUPUNCTURE is!!!

Acupuncture



We provide acupuncture in a community style.  This means that patients are treated in an open room, rather than in private treatment rooms and on recliners rather than on massage tables as is more common in the United States.  This allows the acupuncturist to see more patients in the same amount of time and thereby keep the fees lower.  Patients can stay as long as they like.  The lower fee allows patients to receive treatment more frequently.  The combination of longer needle time and more frequent treatments greatly improves results.



Many patients rest with the needles for an hour or more.

Why does Acupuncture work?

No one knows.  But here are some theories:

The human body is extremely adept at responding to any kind of external harm.  Look how quickly your body changes when you get a minor burn or twist your ankle.  Insertion of a very thin acupuncture needle causes a microscopic amount of damage.  The body over-responds, sending its healing agents to the site of the damage (or to other
balancing areas) and finds nothing significantly wrong.  The healing agents are there now, with nothing much to do, so they start cleaning up old damage.

Every cell of the body, through the DNA stored in its nucleus, contains the entire code for the development and functioning of every part of the body.  It is possible that this holographic principle repeats itself at many levels of the body.  We see obvious parallels between different parts of the body: hands and feet, knees and elbows, tibia/fibula in the lower leg and ulna/radius in the lower arm, etc.  This principle of reflexology has been extended to mapping the whole body onto the bottom of the foot and onto the ear.  The head is mapped onto the arm and also onto the hand.  This principle allows a needle inserted into one part of the body (say the wrist or ankle) to have an effect on a distant part of the body (say the neck).  One can think of these distant points as light switches that are far away from the light fixture.  It would be very inconvenient if we needed to go to every light fixture to turn it on and off.
