Luciano was wonderful. He spends the time to really learn you and help you understand where you need to focus to move past your blocks. He gave me an exercise to do, so we'll see if that helps bring me to where I need to be. I would definitely recommend him!

    I have been seeing Ms. Stennet some 16 years now for Acupuncture and will continue to be a patient because I find she is always professional, very intuitive, and always a calming influence. Continuing treatments have allowed me to maintain a very high level of health and even after serious operations I have found that I heal more quickly and completely. I highly recommend Acupuncture to anyone concerned with keeping themselves healthy. Ms Stennet, with her depth of experience and warm nature, is my practitioner of choice!

      I was recently introduced to Malgosia and the awesome world of Gua sha and Acupuncture. Malgosia is extremely professional, knowledgeable and very personable. She made it very ease to talk about my issues and concerns. The Gua sha was the biggest surprise because I thought it might be painful but it wasn't at all and I immediately felt relief in my neck and injured shoulder. This lasted several days after my treatment. The acupuncture also brought great relief both when I had the flu and again when I had stomach issues. I've had such a pleasant experience with Malgosia. Her knowledge and skill set speak for themselves and I love that she thinks outside of the box. I look forward to many more treatments with Malgosia and I really can't recommend her enough!

      Two years ago I started treatment with Martha for anxiety/depression issues and a life that felt too constricted. During this time I’ve been able to stay off medication and to try dance and yoga classes that have been a joy. Beyond this, I have gained an understanding of Five Element theory that has guided my approach to each season. Martha is a compassionate and intuitive healer who uses acupuncture but also herbs, stones, and real listening with patients who heal and grow due to her care.

      About

      The goal at OurSpace Acupuncture is to make available to everyone healing and health care that is safe, accessible, affordable, effective, and drug free. In order to do this, we provide it in a community setting, where multiple people receive acupuncture pins to help maintain wellness and aid the healing of ailments. Because of this format, we are able to allow people to pay what they can afford. Too often, people aren't able to take advantage of the many benefits of acupuncture (that comes with consistent treatment) because of the cost. Our sliding scale is $15-$40 per 1-hour treatment; you decide what to pay; no questions are asked. Scheduling an appointment is easy. We are open on the following days and times: * Tuesdays through Thursdays: 1 p.m. - 7 p.m. (last appointment is at 6:45 p.m.) * Fridays and Saturdays: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. (last appointment is at 1:45 p.m.) Please use our online scheduler on our website. Or if you prefer, call us, or email Farris to schedule an appointment. We accept cash, checks, and online prepayments as well. We look forward to working with you to meet your health goals!

      My patients tell me that my unique gift is that I help them tap into their own healing power, and they really can sense my healing power during the treatment. The Chinese medicine I practice truly brings all the essential elements of a healthy life to my patients. I not only use acupuncture and herbs but also instructions on diet and lifestyle changes, calming techniques, exercises, self-massage, etc. I believe a comprehensive healing method applied by both practitioner and patient is mostly beneficial to heal the patient's particular condition and to improve his/her general well-being.

I have Bethesda, ChevyChase and DC locations for the convenience of the patients associated with the local N.D. and P.T.

      About

      I run an acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) wellness practice, specializing in Women's health and fertility treatments. My program has an above-average success rate of over 80% in the treatment of infertility stemming from various imbalances. Acupuncture and TCM help to balance hormonal systems, increase blood flow, and reduce stress and anxiety. The body wants to be healthy and balanced. It strives towards health. Symptoms arise to show us what is out of place or needs attention, and using these ancient and effective techniques of acupuncture (inserting hair-thin needles into specific points along the meridian systems), herbs, and lifestyle coaching, we encourage the body back into its natural state of health.

      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.

      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.

      Is it safe to use acupuncture?

      The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

      The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

      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.
