Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere. Acupuncture entails the insertion of sterile, hair-thin needles into specific points on the body for the purpose of treating pain, injury and illness.
Recent research shows that acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system to release a variety of neurotransmitters, endorphins and other biochemicals that trigger the body’s self-regulating systems. This biochemical response promotes physical and emotional well-being by improving circulation, reducing inflammation and stimulating the body’s natural healing ability.
The many benefits of acupuncture include:
- Pain reduction
- Stress and tension relief
- Increased energy levels
- Improved immune function
- Stronger digestion
- Improved health and well-being
How to prepare for an acupuncture treatment: Eat a light meal or a snack 1-2 hours before your acupuncture treatment. It is also important to be sufficiently hydrated. A good rule is to drink one more glass of water than you normally would. Wear loose, comfortable clothing or feel free to bring a change of clothes with you, such as shorts and a T-shirt.
Your initial visit will be approximately 90 minutes as a thorough evaluation is performed, followed by the treatment session. Your follow up visit will be approximately 45-60 minutes and will include an assessment of your status and a treatment session.
Acupuncture treats the nausea/vomiting, fatigue, mind-fog, insomnia, hot flashes and other side effects associated with chemo and radiation, including peripheral neuropathy. Acupuncture is also effective in treating stress, anxiety and depression and assists patients, survivors and their families to maintain emotional balance.
Acupuncture treatments help restore a sense of well-being and calm.

Afraid of needles? No worries, you can still experience all the healing benefits of acupuncture. Micro-current is so effective that at Traditional Acupuncture we almost always combine it with a classic acupuncture treatment or use it as a stand alone treatment even for seasoned acupuncture patients.
Similar to a TENS unit, micro-current uses small electrical impulses to stimulate acupucture points to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Unlike a TENS unit, however, the electrical impulse used is extremely small, less than 1 milliamp, so you don't feel the electrical current, but instead, experience a deep sense of relaxation.
Micro-current works on a cellular level and signals the release of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP can be thought of as the fuel behind cellular metabolism. It allows for increased blood flow to reduce pain and heal damaged tissue, helps release waste material (detoxifies), and aids in the communication between cells in the nervous system.
