 Acupuncture is founded on ancient Chinese concepts of Qi (essential substance fueling the body) and how Qi flow needs to be maintained.  By inserting needles into specific points, the Qi flow is maintained.  When there is a lack of Qi or not a free flow, there can be pain in the area.  In addition inserting needles bring a cellular response to the area, increasing blood flow and decreasing inflammation.

Depending on the severity of the symptom as well as the history can determine the amount of treatments needed.  It is good to start with 5-10 treatments for chronic conditions and then reassess the progression of healing.  While these are estimates, there is no one who heals the exact same as another.   Some conditions require more treatments and also maintenance of symptoms through further treatments.

Make sure you have eaten before the treatment, preferably within the last 3-4 hours. Wear loose fitting clothing, or pants with cuffs that can be easily rolled up.  Tights and skinny jeans are to be avoided.
