Traditional Chinese Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using acupuncture for thousands of years to restore balance in the body, increase energy and relieve tension and pain. Small needles are inserted into certain parts of the body while you rest. Private acupuncture is for those who would like longer treatment times with complete privacy. This also allows for the needles to be inserted in the back of the body, as you can lie face-down on the table. Many people experiencing acupuncture describe a sense of relaxation and increased well-being during and after their session. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of conditions, and treatments are tailored to your particular concerns. We recommend patients with chronic pain conditions book 90 minute sessions, to allow sufficient time for the treatment.

This model encourages clients to share the same treatment room instead of a private room, which significantly lowers the rate of treatment fee. As we share the room together with other people please remain as quiet as you can. Thank you.

MAKING YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to fill out the assessment form. You will go through the form with the practitioner regarding your concerns and relevant information. Although you may have many conditions that you would like us to address, we try to focus on your main condition. Addressing many conditions at once may affect the result of the treatment. After the assessment, you will proceed to the common room for treatment.
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL WHEN THE NEEDLE GOES IN?
You may feel a tingling, heavy, numbing or tight sensation around the needle area. This is an indication that the corresponding energy channels are activated, which will lead to a better treatment result. At some rare time, you may feel the sensation getting too strong to bear. We can always readjust the needle for your comfort. Just let us know or call out for help.
After you receive the needles, you will rest for about 30-60 min, depending on your condition. We may come in once to adjust the needles during your rest. If you have a preferable time to leave, please let us know in advance.
Please wear loose clothes as we will need to roll up your sleeves and pants, usually up above the knees and above the elbow. If you have any shoulder issues, we encourage you to wear a tank top.
BEFORE & AFTER TREATMENT
Do not come in with a full stomach. You should have acupuncture treatment at least an hour after your last large meal. A light snack before your treatment is okay.
All of our acupuncture treatments are performed by our Registered Acupuncturists Thalia and Janice.
