At Active Health & Wellness Clinic we are fortunate to offer our patients the ancient art of acupuncture, a time-tested healing practice that has been used for thousands of years to promote health and well-being. Our Acupuncturist Imani Bossi, R.Ac, is here to guide you on your journey to better health, offering personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs.
What Is Acupuncture And What Does It Do
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a practice which has been used in Asia for over 3,000 years. It is a holistic and gentle approach healing ones body, mind and spirit while promoting disease prevention. This ancient healing method operates in alignment with the Chinese theory of Qi, or energy flow, within the body, often referred to as meridians, to facilitate the harmonization of one's health.
When these energy pathways encounter obstruction due to factors such as inadequate diet, sleep disturbances, chronic stress, anxiety, or insufficient physical activity, a diverse array of health symptoms may manifest. To address these issues, fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. This holistic intervention serves to unblock stagnant energy, enabling the innate capacity of the body, mind, and spirit to self-regulate and restore to a state of optimal health.

What to Expect in Your First Treatment:
At your initial Acupuncture session, we conduct a comprehensive intake process, reviewing your health history, concerns, and goals. This thorough assessment, combined with the examination of your tongue and pulse, serves as the foundation for crafting a personalized treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs. We use sterile needles to insert into different points on the body. You may feel nothing during the insertion of the needles or you may feel small prick, warmth, aching or heavy sensation. The treatment should be comfortable and relaxing for the patient. Depending on your primary health concerns, the practitioner may incorporate other modalities into the treatment like cupping or Gua Sha used to treat pain, increase blood flow and circulation. Your well-being and comfort are our top priorities throughout your Acupuncture experience.
How Many Acupuncture Sessions Will I Need?
It varies from each person and individual circumstances. For acute conditions you may only need a few sessions, whereas more chronic issues may require 8 to 10 treatments. In general it is important to get a follow-up treatment after your first initial treatment as Acupuncture works well with consistency and each treatment builds off each other. A recommended starting point is once-weekly sessions over a span of 4-8 weeks. After this initial phase, we can re-evaluate your progress and determine the most appropriate course of action for your ongoing care.
