How Acupuncture Works:pain relief ponca

Acupuncture works by stimulating a combination of Acupoints on the body to re-balance the body's vital energy and promote healing naturally.

Acupuncture is based on the principle that the organs and systems of the body have a two way communication with hundreds of

Acupoints located near the surface of the skin. Acupoints were mapped on the surface of the skin over thousands of years via trial and error by Chinese acupuncture practitioners.

Acupuncture = Stimulation of Acupoints:

Acupuncture treatment involves stimulation of the Acupoints specific to a patient's complaints. Stimulation of Acupoints can be by needle, electrical stimulation or both.

Typically, 20-40 Acupoints are treated per session with most of the points occurring on the arms, legs, back and ears.

  • The acupuncture needle is usually inserted less the ¼" into the surface of the skin.
  • The needles are of such a fine gauge that five will fit into the core of a hypodermic needle.
  • For most Acupoints, the patient will feel nothing or possibly a sensation similar to a mosquito bite.

The cost for a full acupuncture treatment is $39. The first session generally lasts up to 45 minutes with subsequent visits lasting about 30-35 minutes.

The number of treatments varies with different conditions and patients. Chronic problems generally require more treatments than acute problems. Chronic problems often require 5-10 treatments, where acute problems may be treated in five or less visits. Some patients may notice immediate improvement. However, some may not feel improvement until seven to ten visits. A certain number of patients may even show maximum improvement three months post treatment.
