I can't say enough about Lisa at Healing Steps of Acupuncture. I sought after treatment for some chronic pain issues. The acupuncture treatments were so helpful. It is a year after my last treatment, and I am still feeling great. Lisa is a wonderful, kind woman. She has such a calm energy. She definitely knows how to get results, all while encouraging relaxation and healing. I can't recommend her enough!

I sought out Kamela for support during a huge physical and emotional transition (pregnancy!). I was searching out providers online, with an open ear for bodywork or talk therapy but a preference for someone who could do integrative body/mind work. I have experience with various kinds of bodywork (from acupuncture to chraniosacral therapies to massage) as well as with talk therapy (and am myself a therapist). Kamela stood out as someone who understood the complexities of bodies in relationship, of communication, and of tuning in. She has not disappointed on any of these counts. Her work has impressed me with its depth and its subtlety. A typical session involves coming in, grounding in the space, then checking in verbally for 10-15 minutes (sometimes longer). We then move to the table, where she uses very subtle adjustments and movements (with my clothes on) to help me connect to my physical self. I tend to disconnect from my body, and she has wonderful and deceptively simple questions to help me return. My favorite moments are those when she uses the body as a metaphor, and invites me to reflect on a phrase about my body I have just said (for example, "that leg feels like it's going in all different directions"). Often these moments open big wells of emotion I had not been aware of, and allow me some release. Kamela has a way of connecting with your energy that is very calm and powerful. I am not super comfortable with physical or vocal expressions, and she doesn't push me to do go too far outside my comfort zone. However, I get the sense that she has a range of abilities and approaches that could vary greatly depending on person and preference. She works out of her home, which has caused no problems whatsoever (I rarely see anyone but her when I arrive or leave). The space is comfortable and cozy. Her prices are very reasonable, particularly if you take advantage of her package deals. Highly recommended.

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.
