In an initial treatment, we will go through a complete health history and assessment. We will spend the time necessary to form a complete picture of your health... past, present and future.
By learning about your past and current symptoms, I will be able to see trends in your health and figure out where your life and body has created an imbalance whether from trauma or lifestyle to better help your body achieve and maintain balance and harmony. Part of this assessment will include looking at your tongue and feeling your pulse.This helps in your diagnosis. Your tongue is an internal map of the inside of your body. Your pulse relates to your general well being and tells us about each of the different organ systems. Then you will get to lie on the table, while I may feel around your areas of concern, If you have chronic pain, I may start with a massage to help the muscles relax and help me feel what is going on in your body. Next you will receive an acupuncture treatment. Very thin, hair fine needles will be inserted in specific points depending on your individual constitution and health needs. I may incorporate, cupping or moxa if needed to help you achieve your health goals. You will then get to lie there, while your body falls into a deep relaxed state, many fall asleep.
