I was having problems with my lower back from an injury I sustained while taking care of my elderly mother. I had never had acupuncture, but Marisa was highly recommended through a friend. After my sessions and even now, the pain has subsided 100% and I'm back to my old self again. Beyond the treatment, Marisa as a practitioner was extremely warm and a true professional. I would highly recommend her and her treatments. Jovanna G.

I came to Lora Anderson feeling very tired and run down, I also have fibroids in my uterus. she has been treating me for my thyroid and hormones. Since she has been treating me, I am feeling better, I have more energy and the pain I was feeling do to my fibroids has gotten much better. My treatment by her has been amazing and I will continue doing acupuncture. Lora's is very through and asks many questions to get more insight into what is occurring in your body ,which helps her access what needs to be treated. I highly reccomend you stop by and see her for what ails you, you won't be sorry, she will get you on the road to recovery.

Ann is an amazing acupuncture and herbalist. For more than 5 years, I have been treated by Ann for acupuncture - regarding pain. After the first time I was treated by her, I had some relief from pain. Within 2 months, I was completely pain free. To maintain my pain-free condition, I continued to see her twice a month. She is very aware of the body, mind connection and treats based on underlying conditions as well as any new concerns. For instance, if I am stressed or haven't been sleeping, she will work on healing those things as well as making sure I stay pain-free. She is very astute and cares for the person's overall well-being. I highly recommend Ann Green!

    Dana is a talented healer who has helped me feel so much better from severe migraines, period cramps, IBS, and CFS/ME/CFIDS. The cramps are almost not noticeable now, and the migraines and dizziness that had ruined my life are hugely better. Both the severity and the frequency of the migraines are better. The IBS is the best it has been in many years. The CFS is not as severe. When you have severe health issues you can't just go once or twice, you have to go regularly for it to help you. But because she is a community acupuncturist and has a sliding scale you can afford to get the treatments you need to feel better. You recline on a comfortable lazy-boy chair and it is very relaxing. She is kind and really cares about her patients. I highly recommend her. I wish I had done this years ago for the migraines and period cramps but then there was no community acupuncture available until Dana opened her practice.

    I was very nervous having acupuncture for the first time, but Joann quickly made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I had foot pain for years and even after the first treatment, I was shocked to find I haven't had a problem since. She also gives amazing massages. She really listens and understands the body. I highly recommend her.

    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.
