How Does Acupuncture Work?
Oriental medicine treats the person as a whole. Your initial visit for acupuncture or herbal medicine will involve a conversation and thorough examination of all signs and symptoms which determine your diagnosis. Each treatment is uniquely tailored to maintain a balance of the patient physically, mentally, and spiritually. The initial visit generally lasts 90 minutes, and follow up visits are approximately 60 minutes.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. In that time, it has adapted to treat just about any ailment a person can have. Below is a short list of common health issues we face daily that can be helped with acupuncture and the other healing modalities Matthew has learned.
