Welcome to Acupuncture Healthcare Inc, a full- qualified service clinic serving the San Diego / Mira Mesa area. Acupuncture is of ancient Chinese Medicine that has been practiced for over 5000 years. With Acupuncture needles, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points of the body, depending on your specific need. The stimulation allows your body to restore the normal balance so organs and bodily systems can work together.
What Happens During an Acupuncture Office Visit?
The first step to schedule an acupuncture session with Acupuncture Health Care is to call and find out whether or not acupuncture is most likely to offer you some type of relief. At Acupuncture Health Care, our acupuncturist is well known for his work in using acupuncture to impact many illnesses. Dr. Ron Lord has even taken acupuncture a step farther than the original Chinese methods and uses it to obtain results for those seeking weight loss.
The initial visit will take about an hour and includes an extensive medical history, exam and treatment. Treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes. During the treatment, very thin disposable needles are inserted into several very specific points on your body while you are lying on a comfortable table. The needles are so thin that they do not cause pain; however, you may feel a sensation.
The needles are left in the body for 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the type of treatment that is offered.
Many people report that they feel more and more relaxed during treatment. This is a common benefit received after treatment.
The needles are not meant to draw blood, however, there are some protocalls that require small drops of blood to be extracted (for certin conditions). Acupuncture treatments are usually performed over the course of a few weeks or months, depending on the condition treated.
