How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture works cumulatively. We become ill over time, so it is unrealistic to imagine that we can undo illness or chronic pain in one or two treatments. Acupuncture works in series of treatments, it is untying the knot that has been tied over weeks and months of dis-ease. You can never have acupuncture sessions too close together, but you can have treatments too far apart. Your symptoms should slowly improve. In order to accomplish this, you may need to be seen twice a week and then when improvement begins to hold, once a week and so on. When you are restored to health, you will come in for maintenance treatments every month or seasonally. Just like your car, your body needs to be fine-tuned regularly to prevent further illness. Yvonne Woodson, RN, AP, has had extensive training in the following methods:

Classical Chinese 5-Elements Acupuncture

The philosophy of healing follows the laws of the 5 elements, which describe how energy moves in the body and world at large. The 5 elements are: earth, metal, water, wood and fire. Each element, when balanced, creates the next. When all the elements, which correspond to each of the major organ systems are in balance, health is restored in the body, mind and spirit.

Painless, Non-Insertion Toyohari Acupuncture

Toyohari is a powerful therapeutic system for both preventing disease and maintaining health. It is a system, founded in Japan that is taught at the graduate level. Toyohari uses a non-insertion needle technique that that lends itself beautifully to small children or those that are sensitive to needles or those who are in a weakened state.
