Acupuncture

A form of primary health care based on traditional Chinese medical concepts, that employs acupuncture diagnosis and treatment, as well as adjunctive therapies and diagnostic techniques, for the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health and the prevention of disease.

This gentle therapy employs the stimulation of specific anatomical points and channels on the body such as auricular, hand, nose, face, foot and/or scalp.

The needles used in acupuncture are sterile, solid, filiform instruments for single-use only.

A treatment includes acupuncture, nutritional counseling, recommended breathing techniques and therapeutic exercises, lifestyle and stress counseling, homeopathic preparations approved by the Food & Drug Administration and the United States Homeopathic Pharmacopeia Committee, and Chinese herbology.

Adjunctive therapies: electroacupuncture (microcurrent to stimulate acupuncture points with or without needles), moxibustion, homeopathy, laser acupuncture, and other adjunctive therapies and diagnostic techniques of traditional Chinese medical concepts and modern oriental medical techniques.
