CLINIC ETIQUETTE

  • Be on time. When people are late, it can set the acupuncturist behind and make others wait too long for treatment.
  • Please enter the clinic quietly, silence your phone, and use your “library voice” to help preserve the calm environment.
  • Please don’t wear perfumes or heavy scents.
  • No eating in the treatment room.
  • Do not answer your phone in the treatment room.
  • You are more than welcome to bring ipods or reading material-please keep the volume low enough that it can’t be heard by others and please don’t read loud newspapers.
  • Please do not interrupt the practitioner while she is with another patient unless it’s an emergency.

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

Acupuncture aims to balance the body’s energy flow (referred to as qi or chi), which circulates throughout meridians or pathways in the body. Our highly trained and skilled acupuncturist places tiny, stainless-steel sterile needles into specific pressure points, depending on the condition being addressed. Acupuncture benefits the body by improving its natural balance therefore enabling the body to better heal itself.

Does acupuncture work in the eyes of western medical practitioners? Many see the benefits of acupuncture as a natural pain management therapy and in improving a patient’s overall wellbeing. By inserting the needles in precise pressure points, the nerves, muscles and connective tissue are stimulated, which improves blood flow.
