What is Acupuncture

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yinand yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body’s vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of By inserting and manipulating needles at specific points on the body, the acupuncturist is able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body’s ability to heal itself.

What can I expect from Acupuncture?

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment you will be asked to complete a comprehensive intake form. The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.


After reviewing your intake form, Dr. Cari will discuss your symptoms in order to choose the specific acupuncture points that will best help with healing your condition.  Once the needles are inserted, we will ask that you lie comfortably for 20-25 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.
