My 16-year-old son suffers from migraines, anxiety and depression. Anatoliy Pak treated him with acupuncture and relaxation in addition to nutritional counseling. The occurrence of the migraine headaches has been greatly reduced, and my son has benefited from the experience. The facility is clean, calm and relaxing--very pleasant. Anatoliy is very motivated to help people improve their mental and physical health and seems genuinely concerned. I would recommend him highly.

I'm a newer patient of Venus' having been introduced to sound therapy with Tibetan Bowls December 2017. I've had 6 or so treatments and have found them to be deeply meditative and restorative. I have them after an acupuncture session, which I prefer as I feel more settled and ready to meditate after clearing out emotions and energy through the acupuncture treatment. Venus has the just right technique of keeping the sound flowing and vibrating through you at the just right intensity. With each "bong" of the bowl I have different visions or pictures in my head creating a narrative unique to each session. It is a wonderful sensory experience. I had learned through psychotherapy that traumatic events can be "imprinted" on the body. I initially did the treatment weekly for four weeks to work through sad energy I had been carrying in my abdomen for some time after a pregnancy loss. The bowls are placed on various parts of your body, especially the abdomen. The treatment helped clear the lingering sadness out and I felt healed and ready to move forward again. I'm now on a maintenance and do it once a month. Venus is a kind, warm and positive spirit, who is an skilled artist with her craft. Highly recommend.

Brent is in tune and in touch. He's exceeded my hopes in every session. He's personable, professional, and fun. Brent understands the language of the body in a way that makes it feel like he's psychic. He's rough and tough enough with me that I feel like I'm getting my money's worth, and gentle enough with my wife that she's no longer terrified of acupuncture. Magic!

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

What is an acupuncture treatment?

An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.

How often do you need to get acupuncture?

How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
