How does it work when you come to Sanar Healing Acupuncture?

1

FREE Initial Phone Consultation

An initial patient evaluation is necessary to know if we can treat your condition. During this consultation, we will ask for some information and answer all your questions. In the end, if everything is correct, we will set up your appointment.

2

FREE Insurance coverage verification

We will verify insurance coverage before any treatment. This way, you will know your financial responsibilities and options, including your co-payment and how many treatments may be accounted for.

Please have your insurance information handy when you request your appointment.

3

First-time visit

The first appointment will consist of a complete assessment to acquire as much information as possible about your case. We will perform a physical assessment to review aspects such as:

  • The parts of your body that are painful
  • The shape, coating, and color of your tongue
  • The color of your face
  • The strength, rhythm, and quality of the pulse in your wrist

With all this information, we will make specific recommendations and treatments to cater to your health problems. We will decide the number of sessions necessary and their frequency.

4

Treatment

Acupuncture sessions can be 45 minutes or less, depending on the treatment. It’s common to receive six to eight treatments over several weeks—usually with weekly appointments. However, this might vary depending on the condition and its severity.

On average, treatment involves inserting 5 to 20 acupuncture needles. To further stimulate the area around each needle and enhance their effect, we may delicately rotate them or apply heat or mild electrical pulses.

During the Acupuncture session, you will be comfortably situated on a massage table in a relaxing environment of gentle lighting and calming music. For many patients, it is such a peaceful atmosphere that they feel relaxed enough to nap!

What are the benefits of Acupuncture?

Safe

Read more

When treated by an experienced and certified acupuncturist who uses sterile needles, the risk of medical Acupuncture is minimal, and customer safety is prioritized.

Effective

Read more

Most of our patients report improvements in their symptoms and conditions after treatment sessions, especially if they have completed the recommended quantity and frequency. However, they are accompanied by lifestyle changes that may require a balanced diet and physical activity.

Holistic approach

Read more

Acupuncture looks at a person as a whole – recognizing how physical, mental, and emotional well-being are all interconnected. Acupuncture seeks to treat the root cause of each individual’s concerns through holistic treatment to improve the body’s natural healing abilities.

This approach helps to produce long-term health benefits because it considers your overall lifestyle and habits to address your problems from their roots instead of simply inspecting the symptoms.

Complementary

Read more

Acupuncture can be combined with traditional western medicine treatments and surgical interventions. An excellent example is the use of Acupuncture in many hospitals in the United States to reduce the symptoms of chemotherapy in cancer patients, reduce pain intensity and other symptoms.

Since Acupuncture does not prescribe pharmaceutical chemicals, it has not been reported that it can affect your medical treatments.

Drug-free

Read more

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine method that follows standards from the World Health Organization. If you have a medical treatment, in many cases, Acupuncture allows you to reduce or eliminate prescription drugs and their side effects.

Always ask your doctor if this approach is safe for you.

Mild Side Effects

Read more

Some potential side effects may include tenderness and slight bleeding or bruising at the site where the acupuncture needles were inserted.
Statistics show this may happen in less than 0.2% of cases but more likely in those using blood thinners.

Preventative use

Read more

Repeated use of Acupuncture has been reported to strengthen your immune system and energy balance when an acupuncture practitioner strategically targets specific acupuncture points. Additionally, reducing stress and cultivating healthy habits are part of the treatments and are paramount in maintaining a sense of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

What results to expect after the procedure

Weston acupuncture Sanar Healing Therapies img

After treatments, we recommend a whole night’s sleep or at least a few hours of relaxed physical activity.

Acupuncture uniquely affects each patient, with some feeling recharged and others experiencing blissful relaxation.

Acupuncture could affect people differently; many report excellent results, while others experience little to no improvement.

Acupuncture treats the origin of the health disorder not only the symptoms.

FAQ

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves inserting needles into specific acupuncture points along the body’s meridians.

The needles’ effect may be combined with mild electrical stimulation and heat.

These points are believed to be connected to the body’s organs, muscles, and other body tissues. It’s thought that stimulating these Meridian points can improve energy flow, balance, and overall bodily functions and health.

How Acupuncture Works?

Some studies suggest that Acupuncture may stimulate energy pathways to produce the release of neurotransmitters in the nervous and circulatory systems.

For pain treatment, thin needles are believed to stimulate energy flow and release endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, among other effects.

Acupuncture deals with stress and other issues by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood and other functions in the connective tissue.

All this could explain the leading biochemical reactions in muscles, the brain, and the circulatory system that produce the healing and treat diseases.

How Acupuncture Works at Sanar Healing?

Most of our patients report improved conditions after receiving the recommended treatment at their specific Acupuncture points. However, Acupuncture may not work for everyone or every problem.

There are many reasons why a person may suffer from a condition, such as genetics, lifestyle habits, stress, accidents, the environment, and other forms. Therefore, to experience benefits from Acupuncture, most factors involved should be addressed.

Depending on the type of problem, patients treated by combining medical Acupuncture, herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle modifications, increase the chances of a timely full recovery.

Does Acupuncture hurt?

Most of the time, it is a painless procedure. Acupuncture is done using very thin needles. Most people report feeling minimal pain during needle insertion at the Acupuncture point.

However, every human body is different; some patients might feel slightly pricked when the needle penetrates. Although, this sensation usually fades away when the needles are in place.

What are Acupuncture risks?

A Certified acupuncture practitioner will always use FDA-approved, sterile, and disposable needles to eliminate the risk of infection and disease transmission.

Bruising and numbness can occur if the needles are not inserted properly at the correct depths or angles of acupuncture points.

Acupuncture may cause soreness, minor bleeding, or bruising where the needles are inserted. The chances of this happening may increase if you have a bleeding disorder or are taking blood thinners.

For Electroacupuncture use, we must know if you have a pacemaker and any other medical devices in your body that may be affected.

Special procedures must be taken into consideration for pregnant women.

Acupuncture clinical trials

Although most studies show favorable effects on how Acupuncture works, there are some cases in which results are inconclusive, and the problems are the following:

  • The repeatability of the results
  • The limited number of patients with precisely the same medical condition
  • The uniformity of control groups taking placebo-type treatments
  • The influence of psychological aspects

Furthermore, it is estimated that successful Acupuncture treatment studies and systematic reviews are often limited because people need to follow the therapeutic protocol, and treatment sessions are not strictly followed.

Therefore, more scientific research is needed to verify Acupuncture treatments’ effectiveness and develop effective therapeutic protocols in diverse clinical conditions.

However, thousands of treatments are performed daily worldwide; most patients report satisfactory results.

Here, you can find links to some of these clinical studies.
