The Fire Within Acupuncture & Wellness
Acupuncture is the process of very fine disposable needles being inserted into certain points on the body to help balance the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the body. These points are connected to certain pathways (meridians) in your body, which Acupuncturists differentiate by assessing the tongue, pulse, complexion, and after discussion of your health. Through this method, acupuncturists are able to target more than one area of concern. Acupuncture Treatments are one hour, except for the initial consult and treatment which is up to one and a half hours. During that time, we discuss your health and well being, and decide on what to focus the treatment on. Acupuncture will be applied for 20-45 minutes. Once the needles are in, the Acupuncturist will check on you periodically, and may make adjustments. Other modalities may be applied during this time such as cupping or moxibustion. You will have a great opportunity to relax, and even sleep during your treatment!
