Acupuncture - Starting at $120 First Visit, $100 Return Visit
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the belief that the body contains a vital life energy called Qi., which runs along pathways within the body. Imbalances in the flow of Qi are thought to cause illness. These life-energy pathways are called meridians and are accessible at different locations or points on the body. Practitioners of acupuncture rebalance your energy flow by inserting extremely fine needles into these points in various combinations. This allows your body's natural healing mechanisms to take over. The acupuncturist uses a series of questions, along with pulse and tongue diagnosis to detect imbalances and provide a holistic healing approach. During the treatment, the practitioner uses sterile individually wrapped stainless steel needles that are fine as a human hair. These needles are used only once and then thrown away.
Acupressure is an alternative to acupuncture, using the same theories, diagnosis, and acupuncture points. However, alternatives such as massage or pressing are used to stimulate the points.
