In acupuncture, a TCM physician or Acupuncturist inserts one or more fine needles into the patient’s body to adjust the energy flow. Acupuncture points are like traffic lights on a city street, and the energy that runs through the body is like the traffic flow. Sometimes there is congestion or stagnation in the traffic, and the lights help control the cars and tell them when and where to go. Similarly, an acupuncturist utilizes the needles and acupuncture points to move the energy flow through the body more consistently to provide relief from your symptoms and restore balance to your body.
Acupuncture can be used to treat all types of health issues:
Cosmetic procedures (such as acupuncture for face lifting)
Degenerative diseases due to aging
Weight Loss and Management
Women’s Health (PMS, Menopause, Low libido, Infertility, etc.)
When you arrive for your first acupuncture treatment at Evergreen Wellness Center, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early to complete a short form regarding your health history. Please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking, or copies of any other lab tests or X-rays you feel might be helpful for us to keep in your patient file.
During your consultation, the acupuncturist will discuss your symptoms, provide a diagnosis and prognosis, and determine a treatment plan for any additional acupuncture, massage or herbs that may assist with treating your syndrome.
Initial appointments typically last 45 minutes to one hour. Follow-up acupuncture treatments usually last around 30 minutes.
