Acute Care


Obvious symptoms and signs...

Visits are frequent to promote quick recovery

Feeling healthy goes beyond the absence of acute or chronic illness.  Often, we do not acknowledge our health until it is compromised.  And only then, do we seek ways to regain it.  Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help you along the path toward optimal health and vitality, physically and emotionally.  These are the steps of care that can lead you toward a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Most patients begin acupuncture treatment in order to receive quick relief from pain, discomfort and other symptoms.  This is Acute Care.  This type of care allows you to feel better faster.  Each visit builds upon previous ones, paving the way toward eliminating your initial problems and complaints.  Frequent visits over the next few weeks or months may be needed to further reduce your symptoms.  This is determined by your condition, age, life-style and the quality and quantity of your energy, called Qi (pronounced ‘chee’).  After Acute Care, you will notice that your arches or pains have been dramatically reduced or eliminated.  You are now ready to enter the next phase of care. 

 

Maintenance Care


Symptoms and signs disappear...

Visits are less frequent and you begin to feel better

This next phase is Maintenance Care.  Signs and symptoms have been reduced, and visits are less frequent.  This phase maintains and supports the changes you have achieved this far, and provides a foundation for deeper healing to occur.  This is also the time when underlying problems or complaints can be addressed.  Even though you may not be experiencing symptoms, it is important to continue to strengthen, build and support your body.  Stopping care now could disrupt the progress and changes you have already achieved.  Even simple activities could cause a relapse.

 

Wellness Care


You feel great...

"Tune-ups" help maintain health & vitality

Wellness Care is the next phase.  This type of care preserves all the progress you have made up until now.  Visits may be monthly, every-other month or seasonal.  Much the same way we bring a car in for oil changes, and tune-ups to keep it running smoothly, periodic visits to your acupuncturist can keep you running smoothly.  These preventative maintenance tune-ups further strengthen your body’s resistance, keeping you healthy, balanced and potentially free from illness.  Little problems may be caught before they become major concerns. 

Wellness Care is the root of healing.  In ancient times, an acupuncturist was only compensated as long as the patient remained healthy.  If they became ill, it was the doctor duty to get them well again without compensation.  An acupuncture lifestyle combined with regular exercise, a healthy diet, and other good habits can keep you looking, feeling, and performing at your best.

Treatments may be combined with herbs, cupping, moxabustion, meditation, massage, Qi Gong, or light exercise. These techniques are added to further relieve symptoms, speed recovery time and pave the way toward health and vitality.
