The world and life will always be filled with moments of stress and chaos. For some, that external disorder can feel overwhelming and can manifest as internal imbalances within us.
Those imbalances may emerge as physical symptoms, emotional distress, or a feeling of dysregulation & disconnect...it can be those aches and pains, living your life in fight-or-flight mode, or feeling anxious or depressed.
Acupuncture facilitates healing by restoring those disrupted connections and encouraging balance.
It signals to the body that it no longer needs to live in a chaotic state.
By eliciting the body's innate healing wisdom, the state of your physical, mental and emotional health can make a shift towards healing.
Take steps to feel like yourself again and begin your healing journey....
by tapping into the healing within.
Before your scheduled appointment, you'll be asked to fill out new client forms. The information you share on them give me insight into your health history. It also helps guide the thorough in-take you'll have at your first appointment.
Other things to be mindful of:
Each person is different, so the frequency of acupuncture treatments vary for each client. It also depends on how long you've experienced your symptoms.
Some clients respond faster to frequent acupuncture treatments, this can mean 2x or more treatments a week, while others may only need to come in for acupuncture 1x a week.
Here are general guidelines for the average number of acupuncture treatments before improvement is observed:
At your first appointment, we collaboratively establish your specific treatment plan. I recommend starting with 6 to 8 weekly acupuncture treatments. At each appointment, we re-assess and discuss your progress, then incorporate any changes to your plan.
Once we stabilize your condition(s), we can eventually space your acupuncture treatments to 1x every 2 weeks, then 1x a month, and eventually 1x every season.
Before judging whether or not acupuncture is working for you, keep in mind that the effects of acupuncture are cumulative. Each treatment builds on top of the last treatment, so patience is key!
Along with acupuncture treatments, I may also suggest (with your permission) lifestyle recommendations because these can have an impact on your progress as well.
I believe you are able to evolve into your most authentic self when you continue to be an active participant in your healing outside of the treatment room.
