Acupuncture at Well Within

Integrating the mind and body.
Acupuncture is a Chinese medical technique involving the insertion and manipulation of very fine needles. Chinese medicine sees the mind and body as a fully integrated system, which can be treated via special channels that facilitate communication throughout the mind and body. Acupuncture uses points along these channels to treat many health conditions. Examples include asthma, arthritis, morning sickness, menopausal symptoms, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic and acute pain conditions, depression and more.
What Conditions Can Acupuncture Treat?
Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can be helpful in treating a wide range of physical and emotional concerns, these conditions may include, but are not limited to:

back pain
headache
anxiety/stress/depression (emotional issues)
knee pain
shoulder pain
hip pain
gastrointestinal issues
weight loss
insomnia
addiction (smoking/food/drug/alcohol)
chronic conditions (ex. fibromyalgia)
What Other Treatments Go With Acupuncture?
Other potential adjunctive techniques include cupping, where suction is created inside a small cup to loosen tight and/or congested areas of the body, and Gua Sha, where a smooth, curved surface is scraped along the skin to break up muscle tension and poor circulation.
Does It Hurt?
Acupuncture needles are very thin. You may experience a brief, mild, tingling or dull sensation as energy flows to the affected area. Most patients feel deeply relaxed during treatment. Please tell your practitioner if any discomfort lasts more than a few minutes.
What Should I Expect?
Your first appointment lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours, and is spent discussing current and past health issues to determine the best course of treatment, and includes an acupuncture treatment. Follow up treatments last from 45 mins to 1 hour. 

Very thin, sterile, disposable, single-use acupuncture needles are gently inserted at very specific points along acupuncture pathways/meridians of the body, inducing a physiological response which directs the flow of energy, removes blockages, and corrects imbalances.
How Many Appointments Will I Need?
The number of treatments depends on factors such as severity and length of time of your issue(s), age, current overall health condition, lifestyle, etc.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
According to Eastern medicine, pain or illness occur when energy becomes blocked, misdirected, or imbalanced. 
Acupuncture works through sending signals via insertion of thin needles to release blockages, redirect energy and correct imbalances.

Example of factors that may contribute to a blockage or imbalance:
* physical and/or emotional trauma
* genetic predisposition
* environmental stressors/allergens
* lifestyle, nutrition, and work habits
* chemical, physical, and/or emotional stress
