How many treatments will I need? And what can I expect after treatment?
This depends on the nature, duration, and complexity of the conditions. For acute cases: one treatment may only be needed to get immediate results. For complex or chronic cases: one or two treatments per week for several months may be suggested.
Patients often report the most dramatic results after 3-5 treatments. As in many cases of healing, the patient's nutrition, lifestyle and determination will also affect the outcome of a treatment course.
Ear acupuncture stimulates specific points that relaxes the mind and body by increasing mood-enhancing neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, adenosine) in the brain. This, in turn, speeds recovery and eases pain.
Hair-thin acupuncture needlesare gently placed on the acupoints using guide tubes. As a comprehensively trained acupuncturist, your safety is assured. We only use pre-sterilized, single-use, disposable needles.
First session: After an interview (includes pulse taking and tongue observation- as an important part of TCM) and arriving at a diagnosis the treatment will then be performed. The needles are usually retained for 35 minutes, while you relax. Normally, a mild tingling or subtle aching sensation can be felt...these are the normal effects of qi movements through the body.
After the session, patients often report feeling more calm; some are more energized. Each person has a unqiue response.
First visit generally can take 1 - 1.5 hours; follow-up visits are usually 1 hour duration.

Experience what the Ancients have discovered over a thousand years ago~ the systematic way of the vital energy flow in the body. In Chinese it is called "Qi", pronounced "chee"). It exists in every living thing in the world. In humans and animals, Qi flows through channels or meridians interconnectedly mapped with acu-points. Carefully placing hair-thin acupuncture needles on these specific acu-points will trigger the release of the body's own chemicals and hormones, which can restore physical-emotional health. We look at and treat the body as a whole. Health is a balance of spirit-mind-body in harmony with nature. When this balance is disrupted and the Qi is blocked, stagnated or weakened, a dis-ease or pain occurs. Unblocking and balancing the Qi can restore health. Because of its proven effectiveness, acupuncture has withstood the test of time and still so widely used today.
