About Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Using a meridian mapping system, acupuncture utilizes the harmonious flow of qi, blood and bodily fluids to assist in healing and facilitate proper functioning of organs. Your practitioner will take into account your past health history, pulse and tongue qualities. By inserting fine, disposable needles into specific points along the body’s energetic pathways, or “meridians,” your practitioner will regulate the flow of qi, blood, and bodily fluids. Acupuncture needles are so thin that patients rarely feel them when they are inserted.

Sanitation and Safety Precautions

Read about the enhanced cleaning procedures and policies being used within our Integrative therapy department below:

  1. In an effort to protect the medically based and high-risk populations that we serve, masks are still required to be worn by the client and provider during acupuncture appointments.
  2. Please avoid hand-shaking, hugging and other unnecessary contact and keep “table talk” and pre-/post-session talk to a minimum.
  3. Providers and clients will wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering and before leaving the treatment room.
  4. ALL linens after every client will be placed in a separate bin to be laundered.
  5. Providers will use oxivir to thoroughly disinfect all surfaces and touch points in the treatment rooms.
