Acupuncture Q & A

What Is Acupuncture Treatment?

Acupuncture is a type of treatment that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. Acupuncturists use extremely slim needles, placing them in key areas on the body to alleviate pain in a natural way. The needles create a balance in the body’s energy, which allows the body to return to its optimal pain-free state.

There are several types of acupuncture. In moxibustion, moxa taken from dried mugwort warms key areas and helps with smooth qi energy flow. In auricular acupuncture, points on the outer ear are stimulated for healing. In cupping therapy, suction is used to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing.

We're not just an acupuncturist or a physical therapist sharing an office. We are a truly integrated team, an integrated model, which means that I, as the clinic director, determine what are the different aspects that the patient needs to get well. And then through a team approach.

A truly collaborative approach is how we treat the patient. So you're getting the experience, the shared experience of myself who's been doing this for almost 40 years, plus a team of outstanding providers all working together. We discuss every patient, we plan for every patient. And it's that truly integrated, collaborative approach that separates Complete Wellness from all other facilities.
