The Initial Treatment lasts approximately 90 minutes and includes the first treatment. Acupuncture promotes natural healing by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms to fight disease and ease the pain. Acupuncture is extremely safe; the needles are sterile, disposable and never reused. The needles used are very thin, about the diameter of a thick piece of human hair. This wonderful relaxing therapy can help with many types of health problems including, but not limited to: Painful conditions, Gynecological Disorders, Additions, Mental/Emotional Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders, and Circulatory Disorders. The practitioner may incorporate electro-stim on the needles, moxibustion, cupping, and liniments depending on the condition being treated.
