TOP QUESTIONS

We’re Here for You

CAN ACUPUNCTURE WORK FOR ME?

You no doubt heard how acupuncture has helped others. But your question is: “can it help me?” In order to determine this you will need an initial consultation, thorough, review of your medical history and oriental medical evaluation. Only then can it be determined whether or not you are a case for acupuncture. I do not accept all cases. But all the cases I accept, I do my best to help. I am dedicated to those who are seriously willing to actively participate in the process of their own health. 

 

I have built my reputation on helping others.

WILL ACUPUNCTURE NEEDLES HURT?

Perhaps you are afraid of needles. Well, most people are, and almost everyone has an uncomfortable experience with injection needles. The needles we use are totally different from any needles you have ever experienced.


Acupuncture is done with extremely fine, disposable, flexible needles. There is nothing “special” in the needle. Since the needles are not hollow they are made to a superfine gauge. Some are like strands of hair. The feeling of insertion ranges from a few who anxiously imagine that feeling of the needle before it was inserted, to the commonplace expression “That’s all there is? I didn’t even feel it go in.” Many people fall asleep during treatment. The whole experience is rather calming and uplifting.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

The time it takes to recover from your ailments varies with the particular circumstances of each individual case. A general rule of thumb is that however long you have had any particular illness or symptom, it will take half as long to fully recover from it. You can rest assured, however, that I will help you to regain your health as quickly as possible. Now that you have chosen AcuShaman and have placed your health care in my hands, relax, be patient, and give me a chance to help you to thrive.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture treatment increases the body’s natural defense and resistance to disease. The balancing effect in turn adjusts blood flow, improves nervous tone, regulates both hormonal levels and the functions of the internal organs. 

 

The internal organs control body functions, digestion, respiration, circulation, genito-urinary, musculoskeletal, neurological and metabolic functions. These organs also command various parts of the body; the eyes, ears, nose and throat, knees, back, chest, abdomen and the extremities.

The internal organs are responsible for controlling emotional states of depression, anger, fear, worry, grief, sadness, anxiety and obsessions. By restoring the normal function of the internal organs, acupuncture can control body functions, various parts of the body and emotional states.
