Service Description

Acupuncture is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a comprehensive healthcare system with deep-rooted theories on well-being and disease. With a history spanning thousands of years, TCM encompasses practices such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary adjustments, massage, and exercises, all aimed at restoring harmony within the body. When the body's equilibrium is disrupted, it can lead to symptoms of illness manifesting on physical, emotional, or mental/spiritual levels. Various diagnostic approaches can be employed by practitioners, influenced by their training, mentors, and chosen acupuncture styles. These methods may involve examining the pulse, abdomen, back, tongue, skin, hair, nails, eyes, facial features, posture, and body type, and inquiring about sleep quality, digestion, elimination, and energy levels to discern patterns of disharmony. By utilizing this holistic assessment, practitioners can decipher a coherent narrative from seemingly unrelated complaints. Rather than solely addressing individual symptoms or Western disease classifications, the emphasis lies on identifying and addressing the underlying imbalances that have precipitated these issues. The fee for each subsequent acupuncture session is $75.
