Acupuncture, herbs, cupping, gua sha and moxa are available at Acupunctureworkz. A typical appointment lasts from 60 to 90 minutes. For your first appointment, expect to fill out a questionnaire on general health questions, and then Leslie, your acupuncturist, may ask you questions to help guide them in providing you a treatment plan using Traditional Chinese Medicine. The goal is to help your body restore balance and well-being.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterile, thin, hair-like needles into acupuncture points in certain patterns to regulate energy flow throughout the body. Nearly 5,000 years old, this ancient practice is not at all painful. Most patients have very pleasant sensations during acupuncture, and even fall asleep during a treatment.
Many people can benefit from herbs. Herbs provided at AcupunctureWorkz are safe and from an American company (Golden Flower Chinese Herbs). Herbs help complement your acupuncture treatment and are the "yin" to the acupuncture "yang." Herbs help nourish the body and restore balance.
Cupping is a wonderful treatment designed to restore energy and blood flow to painful areas of the body.
Moxa (mugwort herb) is an herb that is heated and applied to acupuncture needles, or used alone to help restore blood flow, and warm areas of the body that require this for healing.
