What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the Chinese medical practice of inserting needles into specific points on the body to promote health and combat disease, thereby balancing Qi (pronounced “chee”), a subtle energy that circulates via energy channels called meridians. Practiced for over 3000 years, each acupuncture point has a specific purpose and function with a predictable result.

If acupuncture is something you would like to try make an appointment today.

What does the examination and consultation involve?

We will have several health history forms for you to complete prior to your initial visit. A first appointment lasts about 1.5 – 2 hours. We review your history and ask questions covering the major systems of the body in detail, including: energy level, sleep patterns, digestion and emotional well-being. During your clinical intake, we may also feel your pulse and look at your tongue – two more Chinese medicine clinical tools that help us access your current situation.

Once you are given a Chinese medicine diagnosis your treatment begins. Acupuncture points are chosen based on your diagnosis and clinical findings. Every acupuncture point is indicated for certain treatments and has a specific function and every acupuncture treatment is aimed at resolving both your symptoms and the root cause of your illness or imbalance.

Proven and certified, Acupuncture & Fertility is the perfect office to choose for regular visits or try acupuncture for the first time. Contact Acugreenville today.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Unlike needles used to give injections, acupuncture needles are extremely fine, approximately the diameter of a single human hair and are designed to enter the skin with the least resistance. For your protection, we use only single-use, sterile, disposable needles.

Acupuncture treatments involve little or no pain, and are usually quite relaxing. You can expect to feel a light tingling, a feeling of heaviness, warmth, or numbness at the acupuncture site.

We understand you may have hesitation, Contact Acugreenville today with any questions or concerns.
