What could an Acupuncture treatment do for me?
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Oak Haven Massage offers comprehensive wellness support, including our newest offer- ing, Acupuncture for Body, Mind, and Spir- it. This modality is developed from ancient Chinese medicine traditions with a broad range of applications, from healing sickness and injury, to preventing the onset of disease and helping you achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional balance. Acupuncture can be used as a stand alone therapy, or can be a complement to your massage regimen.
In a typical treatment, you and your acu- puncturist will discuss your concerns and goals, and create a treatment plan. Many times, immediate benefit will be experi- enced after just a single treatment. For many conditions a series of treatments are recom- mended to ensure continued guidance on healing and growing. This will be discussed at your first treatment.
Benefits of Acupuncture
You may hardly notice as thin, sterile needles are placed at strategic acu-points to focus your body's healing abilities. Acupuncture is particularly helpful in treat- ing stress, pain, insomnia, and headaches, and also can be effective in addressing allergies, hot flashes and other peri-menopause symp- toms, digestive imbalance, fatigue, and sports injuries. If you have interest in acupuncture, our staff will be happy to discuss its many benefits with you.
Acupuncture Treatment Offers:
Acupuncture is Safe and Effective
All treatments are conducted according to strict 'clean needle techniques' and standards. All needles used are sterile single use stainless steel medical grade acupuncture needles which are disposed of immediately after use in a bio- medical waste 'sharps' container. Strict safety protocols are followed to ensure that your treatment is safe.
The World Health Organization has suggested that acupuncture is effective and appropri- ate for the treatment of many conditions. The American National Institutes of Health convened a consensus panel of scientists, researchers, and practitioners who concluded that research supports the effectiveness of acupuncture for some conditions and that it is useful by itself or combined with conventional therapies to treat many other conditions.
