Initial treatment will begin with a generous amount of time provided to fully allow me to understand your medical, physical and emotional situation. It is during this time that I will be using my skills to ascertain how I might best assist you in achieving your unique goals. The treatment process is a collaboration in which I will be committed to your well being. As part of your treatment, I will ask you to be the fully invested in your healing process.
During the acupuncture treatment, I will use sterile, hair-width single use needles. These needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points and then removed following insertion. The purpose of this technique is to stimulate and strengthen your Qi, (life force). I will often use moxibustion, an ancient technique in which small cones of an herb, (artemesia vulgaris) are applied to each acupuncture point prior to insertion of the needles to warm and enhance the flow of Qi, (life force).
A minimum of 24 hour notice is needed to avoid being charged for your acupuncture session. Considerations may be made for emergencies, medical illness or bad weather.
