Acupuncture Treatment

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses hair-fine, sterile needles to access specific points defined through meridians in the body. Traditions over many thousands of years have advanced throughout that time to a scientifically-proven treatment process. Acupuncture encourages the body’s natural healing mechanisms to treat an amazing list of pathogenic and physical conditions ranging from athletic pain relief, fertility, and even cancer treatment support.

Jill Sutherland, lead practitioner, is very sensitive to the delicate nature of placing acupuncture needles, allowing for a relaxing treatment. Each acupuncture treatment is 45 to 60 minutes per session. It is not uncommon for a patient to drift into a calm or dream state while the points are accessed and activated.

Before an acupuncture treatment, a light meal and water is recommended 1 hour before, this allows the bodies Energy to be accessible.

As subsequent treatments occur, discussion of progress, effect, and overall therapy strategy takes place. This keeps patients informed and on track, achieving their health.
