How does acupuncture work at your clinic?

When you come to Express Healthcare for acupuncture, you will be led to a private room for your session. Once relaxed and ready to begin, our providers will use a set of very fine, sterile needs and place them just under the surface of your skin. The location of these needles is not random but are specific points on the body to stimulate those areas. Traditionally, these needles were used to release the flow of “energy” in your body. When that energy is released or realigned, it is supposed to maintain and support good health.

Are there any side effects of acupuncture?

The entire acupuncture process is very safe. There are few if any known adverse side effects to acupuncture. Our highly trained providers will ensure you have an as pleasant experience as possible at our clinic.
Keep in mind your experience with acupuncture will likely be different than someone else’s. With that said, most patients do not report any pain during their session or at the very least, only slight discomfort. Acupuncture needles are very thin, and many do not feel a thing. Patients, depending on the nature of their treatment, often feel relaxed or energized when they leave.

How acupuncture is performed?

An initial acupuncture session usually lasts 20 minutes to 1 hour and involves an assessment of your general health, medical history, and a physical examination, followed by insertion of the acupuncture needles. Courses of treatment often involve several separate sessions, but this can vary.

What does it do to the body to help improve someone’s health?

On the body, there are over twenty areas that our providers will use during an acupuncture session. The area an acupuncturist will focus on is determined by the symptoms a patient is experiencing. Talking with our providers before your session will help them focus on what areas to concentrate on and correct any “energy imbalances.” Multiple studies have shown acupuncture to be a cost-effective way to treat a wide range of minor medical problems, such as minor back pain and some chronic pain.

Before your first session at our clinic, you will meet one on one with one of our friendly providers. During that meeting, they will review your day to day behaviors, general health, lifestyle, and medical history. Together, you will discuss any ailments you are suffering from and how you are feeling emotionally. Once our provider has a complete picture of your health, it will be much easier for them to focus on areas of your body to work on so they can help you feel better. Please let our staff know about any medical conditions, medications, or any other treatments you are undergoing at this time. This information will ensure your acupuncture treatment is as effective as possible and will not cause any issues with any current medical treatment or medications you are taking.
