What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been around for Thousands of years and utilizes very small needles to affect your bodies “meridians”. Your meridians help to maintain the “flow of energy” throughout your body which is easily influenced due to everyday toxins and stressors like: poor diet/lack of sleep/etc. In acupuncture the body is treated as a whole system and, much like chiropractic, acupuncture takes a whole body approach. According to Acupuncture theory when you restore the body’s natural state the body will heal itself and symptoms will improve. With acupuncture it is believed that disharmony is due to too much or too little functioning within the body (excess or deficiency). At First Step we will go through an extensive interview process at your first appointment that will let us better understand your current state of disharmony within your body. We will then use this information as well as a combined approach of Chiropractic care and lifestyle changes to help you get maximum results. Each Acupuncture appointment is tailored toward each individual patient to help you achieve balance. Dr Melissa is certified in Chiropractic Acupuncture and is working towards achieving her Diplomate in the future.
