Acupuncture treatment uses the bodies energy channels just below the surface of the skin to restore harmony and balance to the many systems, organs and structure in the body. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to alter the body's energy flow into healthier patterns. It can be used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions. An Acupuncture consultation with Dr. Sanya begins with a conversation about the physical, chemical and emotional symptoms that are being experienced. A care plan and home recommendations are given tailored for the individual. Typically six sessions are recommended to begin care over a course of six weeks. Up to 20 needles are used and the sessions are approximately 30 minutes long. Acupuncture needles are sterile and safe. Most people do not feel pain with the treatments, often people report feeling pressure and a deep sense of relaxation during and after the sessions. Acupuncture is the perfect resource for challenging cases, many people who have “tried everything else” have found relief with Acupuncture.
