NIH defines HOMEOSTASIS as "a self-regulating process by which biological systems maintain stability while adjusting to changing external conditions . . .The disruption of homeostatic mechanisms is what leads to DISEASE"
In 1950, Dr. Yoshio Nakatani in Japan discovered there are measurable electrical properties along acupuncture meridians. With the help of AcuGraph technology, we have an objective way of measuring electrical skin resistance at acupuncture points.
With a 3 minutes diagnostic test, we will SHOW you where your imbalances are and how they might be affecting your health.
Combining Ancient Wisdom with Modern Technology
Choose Your Treatment
Acupuncture Treatment (60 mins):
Personalized treatment to address what is most troubling you. Using information provided by AcuGraph, we will address both the underlying cause and symptoms of your concern.
When appropriate, your treatment may incorporate the use of infrared heat lamp, electric-stimulation, fire cupping, gua sha, moxibustion and herbal tinctures.
Balance Treatment (30 mins):
Your body is the most precious machine you own. Don't wait until something is wrong. By combining AcuGraph and acupuncture, we will work together to keep your body in balance, and allow your body to function properly.
With a proactive approach, we can redefine health care from sick care to well care.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works by rebalancing the body through stimulation of the sensory layer and nerve bundles in order to tap into the central nervous system. This is why acupuncture has the ability to affect the entire body. When the body is in homeostasis, it innately unleashes its own ability to heal and to regenerate itself.
How many treatments will I need?
There was a process that led up to the symptoms you are experiencing. Acupuncture works by resolving both the underlying cause and symptoms, so your body can make the fundamental shift that is needed for you to feel better. This is why acupuncture works in a series of treatments. The effects of each treatment build on top of each other. The number and frequency of treatments needed depends on your specific concern needed to be addressed. In general, a course of treatment for a simple, acute case is around 4- 6 treatments, while a more complex, long standing problem might take 10 or more treatments.
I've tried acupuncture before, but it didn't help . . .
Just like medications, acupuncture requires a consistent, properly timed treatment plan in order to see optimal results. This allows for the cumulative benefits of each treatments to build on top of each other so we can get to a more permanent state where your symptoms are no longer disrupting your quality of life.
