How Can Acupuncture Help?
It is all about balance.
When you are feeling “off”, out of sorts or downright sick, that’s where we come in…..acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle can be used to re-establish the “you” in your body.
At Many Lives Chinese Medicine we see all internal medical issues and hold extra board certifications to treat hormonal health for both men and women.
We utilize many tools to land on a diagnosis, provide a treatment path which will bring your body into balance for a happier you.
What is an Acupuncture Treatment Like?
Feeling nervous about acupuncture is very common. The first treatment begins with a good conversation, we review all of your systems, take nine pulses and look at your tongue. All of your information is combined and a constitutional diagnosis is established. The practitioner chooses acupuncture points to address your diagnosis, the points are stimulated to provide a relaxing treatment. It feels like a deep nap, there is no pain.
For the needle curious ……each one is tiny, single use, solid stainless steel and are placed in safe, obvious places or “points” on the body. We use between 8-15 needles for each treatment. You often will wear your clothing, because it is loose fitting. Each needle feels like a mosquito bite, you rest for 25 minutes with the needles in place.
Everyone has a different experience, generally, your treatment is relaxing because you are laying on a very comfortable table with an eye pillow and a heat pack. It is common to drift off into the deepest nap you have ever had. It is bliss.
I was not sure whether acupuncture and other forms of Chinese medicine would be effective for injuries (to back and shoulder) but if found, to my pleasant surprise, that they really are! The team at Many Lives are really great, knowledgeable and operate very responsibly. I highly recommend anyone who wants to avoid surgery to see them.
Seeing Beth and her staff has been a wonderful experience, just knowing that I’m going to see them relaxes me and I love that they take the time before every session and listen to how your life is going. They’re like my therapists and acupuncturists rolled into one.
I feel completely confident in Beth’s skills. In addition, it is very comforting being around her. She’s everything a Practitioner should be and very skillful at her Art. And…I can’t help but mention the VERY relaxing nap that comes with the Acupuncture.
I have been working with Many Lives Chinese Medicine for 3 months for fertility issues. Beth is always so compassionate, understanding, grounding, supportive, and makes me laugh. She has very broad and comprehensive understanding of fertility from the western and eastern approach so she has been very helpful in complementing the western treatments that I have had. She has helped regulate my cycles and I feel confident that working with her has improved our chances of pregnancy! Thank you!
