Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the incorporation of a variety of natural treatment techniques aimed to guide the body into healing.

Acupuncture, one of the main components of the TCM treatment, is the practice of inserting ultra fine needles into specific points of energy that are located along 14 Meridians or Channels that cover the entrie body. There are 365 classical Acupuncture points which were mapped out millennia ago and have been shown to produce predictable results in the body.

Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It is a complete treatment in and of itself, as well as an excellent compliment to almost any other therapy, including Chiropractic, massage therapy, and Western pharmaceuticals and surgery.

Frequently asked questions:

1. Does acupuncture hurt?

Generally speaking, acupuncture should not be painful. While there may be some mild discomfort with needle insertion, most patients report feeling very little at all. It is normal to feel a dull ache, a sensation of hot or cold, or a feeling of electricity or tingling during your treatment.

2. Is acupuncture safe?

“Acupuncture has adverse effects, like any therapeutic approach. If it is used according to established safety rules and carefully at appropriate anatomic regions, it is a safe treatment method” (Sykehus et al, 2003). Acupuncture has been proven time and time again to be a safe and effective treatment intervention. Some of the common side effects include temporary light headedness, nausea, and muscle soreness. Dr. Dunlop will discuss any risks specific to you prior to treatment.

3. How do I know if my insurance company covers me for acupuncture?

Each insurance plan is different so the best way to know if you are covered is to call your insurance provider and ask.
