What to expect from acupuncture

Acupuncture is a painless treatment that people often can do once or twice per week to improve their overall wellbeing.  Most people leave feeling relaxed, and many are even able to fall asleep during treatments.

Acupuncture pairs well alongside all of our other therapies to make them more effective. It works by the insertion of thin, sterile needles into very carefully selected points in the body, based on an assessment that the doctor and licensed Acupuncturist provides. This assessment can include past medical history, review of lab work, Pulse Diagnosis,  Tongue Diagnosis and other types of physical exams, including current medical history, to understand what is happening to the body.

Acupuncture points are selected and can be used in addition to adjunctive therapies such as electrical stimulation (electro-acupuncture), cupping, and moxibustion.  It is also used in conjunction with physical medicine techniques like Tui Na.  We may also use things like infrared heat lamps to help improve the efficacy of the treatment.

During your initial treatments, you will generally come in once or twice per week, and then sometimes after the initial acute phase, you may need treatment or maintenance doses every 1-3 months depending on the patient.  Dr. Kachko will work with you to find the treatment interval that best suits you, and talk to you about what to expect from each procedure.
