Frequently Asked Questions

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a healing tradition that has been practiced continually for five thousand years.   It seeks out imbalances in the body and works to correct the imbalances to treat specific concerns and enhance overall health and wellbeing.  Small, sterile needles are placed at specific acupuncture points on the body.

Acupuncture is gentle, effective, and safe.

Because acupuncture helps the body heal itself, acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions.  Rebecca has treated mental-emotional concerns, broken bones, hot flashes, back pain, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and many other issues.

Each session starts with a discussion about your current health concerns and goals.  Then Rebecca will review of your medical history, take your pulse, look at your tongue, and gently examine any areas of concern.  Small (the size of a human hair), sterile needles will be lightly placed at acupuncture points along the body.  Each treatment is customized and needle placement may include arm, legs, abdomen, back, and ears.  Then the patient is allowed to rest with the needles in place.  Most people find acupuncture deeply relaxing and sleep during the treatment.
