What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a physical medicine. It evaluates health by feeling the relative strength or weakness of a series of energetic pathways that run up and down the body. When an imbalance is found, very fine needles are used to redirect the energy back to its proper place. Acupuncture has a long and successful track record of healing and preventing disease. Acupuncture can help you in ways you may not even be aware of. If you have questions, schedule a consult with Giulietta Octavio today. She can speak to your specific health concerns.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Acupuncture doesn’t hurt! The needles are very fine and many people find the effect of acupuncture to be both pleasant and profound. It is gentle enough for pregnant women or children and powerful enough to treat serious conditions such as acute pain, high blood pressure or menopausal symptoms. The treatment takes about an hour and while the needles are in you rest in a warm, quiet room and relax. Once you experience Acupuncture, it may become your favorite hour of the week!
