How Does Acupuncture Work?

The Process  

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.
