Acupuncture Treatment Info

After making a proper diagnostic assessment, a practitioner chooses a combination of acupuncture points at which extremely fine, flexible needles are inserted in order to achieve desired actions. Insertion of these needles is quick and painless in most cases so long as the practitioner is able to locate the acupoints with precision and does not rush the process. You can rest assured that this will be your experience at Harmony Acupuncture: Alice schedules only one client at a time, allowing for quality one-on-one care and full attention to your needs.

Desired actions of acupuncture include but are not limited: alleviating pain, reducing swelling, regulating Qi and blood, benefitting certain organs and areas of the body, restoring consciousness, and clearing inflammation.

Acupuncture has been proven to treat and prevent a wide range of acute and chronic conditions safely and effectively. And it doesn't have to cost you a fortune - at Harmony Acupuncture, treatments are affordable and covered by most health benefit plans.

Depending on the acupuncture point location, the needles can penetrate from less than of an inch up to a few inches. A person receiving acupuncture usually feels sensations such as tingling, numbness, or heaviness. These sensations often travel through the acupuncture channels and they are all very positive and desirable responses to acupuncture.

Most people feel relieved of pain and often feel a deep relaxation or even a tranquil sense of well-being. This is due to acupuncture’s mechanism of stimulating the release of endorphins, a morphine-like substance naturally produced by the body with pain-killing and calming properties.

Depending on the condition you wish to treat or prevent, a practitioner may incorporate additional techniques to supplement an acupuncture treatment. The most common supplementary TCM techniques are: electroacupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, Tuina massage, and ear seeds.
