Acupuncture


What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used in China as one of their main forms of health care for the past 3,000+ years. Acupuncture deals with meridians, which are energy channels that run throughout the body similar to blood vessels but rather than carrying blood, they carry energy (qi/chi). There are hundreds of points along these meridians and each point can but utilized for a very specific set of conditions for symptoms. Stimulating these points using needles, electrical current, heat and/or pressure can correct imbalances in energy (qi/chi) within the body. Acupuncture is used to treat thousands of conditions including, but not limited to: headaches, heartburn, hemorrhoids, infertility, muscle/joint pain, addiction and weight loss.

Acupuncture at Health in Motion
Dr. Sara can use acupuncture as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments. She is skilled in using needles, electrical current, pressure and heat to get the best results and accommodate any fears or hesitancies about needles.

The first appointment will take about an hour and will include an in-depth discussion about the conditions we are going to work on, a complete exam and a treatment. Subsequent treatments will take approximately 30 minutes and include a short discussion about the conditions we are working on and a treatment. If you are already a chiropractic patient, your first appointment will just be a short discussion and a treatment as we have already done the exam.

Needling
Dr. Sara utilizes very thin needles that are all individually packaged, used one time and then immediately placed in a SHARPS bin. Many people do not feel the needles being inserted, while others feels a slight pinching sensation that diminishes immediately after the needle has been inserted.
