WHAT DOES AN APPOINTMENT LOOK LIKE?

Acupuncture treatments consist of the stimulation of specific points, identified by anatomical and physiological standards, as well as by manual inspection and palpation. Stimulation of points elicits a predictable physiological response including neurophysiological responses in the muscles, spinal cord and brain, as well as biochemical and hormonal responses in the body. These responses change the body’s experience of symptoms, especially pain, or trigger the release of substances, which influence the body’s internal regulation. This includes the administration of manual, mechanical, thermal, and Electrotherapeutic stimulation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, it doesn’t hurt! 

Treatments are very relaxing, my needle technique is very gentle and effective, the majority of the times my patients are so relax that is normal to have a little “Acu-nap.”

In my practice, I use very fine, high quality disposable needles to stimulate specific anatomic sites in your body, this helps to trigger the nervous system response helping to strengthen the body’s  functions, promoting a faster healing processes.  

 

Scientists and doctors have several proven theories to explain the benefits of Acupuncture 

*Neurotransmitter Theory 

Acupuncture stimulates the release of specific neurotransmitters that stimulate the immune system  function 

*Autonomic Nervous System Theory  

Acupuncture stimulates the release of norepinephrine, and stimulates several types of opioid  receptors creating a positive affect to the nervous system, helping to reduce pain and  inflammation. 

*Vascular-Interstitial Theory 

Acupuncture affects the electrical system of the body. This facilitates healing by allowing the  transfer of material and electrical energy between normal and injured tissues. This electrical  energy is part of what we call “Qi” in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  

“Qi” is the vital force of energy and the transformation potential in every living organism  and its parts. 

You can call it ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), this is the molecule that carries energy within  cells. All living things use ATP. 

*Blood Chemistry Theory 

Acupuncture can both raise and diminish peripheral blood components, regulating the body  helping the individual to be in homeostasis, stimulating better blood circulation.

Yes! Revival can direct bill for Acupuncture appointments 

There is an extensive, and personal intake process, we will review your intake form, and talk about all your health concerns. I will take your pulse, and observe your tongue; these are my best diagnostic tools to understand what is going on internally in your body. I make your treatment plan and point prescription, I usually use 10 or fewer needles, you may not even feel them.  Furthermore, I dim the lights and let you relax for 30 to 40 minutes; this process is highly meditative and relaxing. Guarantee, You will feel better, more relaxed, and peaceful. 

 

Acupuncture works cumulatively in a series of treatments, so we encourage you to experience what it has to offer by committing to your treatment plan. With each treatment improvements build up from the last, if your symptoms are returning before your next visit, book in as soon as possible.

Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments are very personal and customized, you may receive a  different point prescription each visit, I will give you a specific treatment plan for your needs,  and instructions to follow after your visits. Treatments work cumulative, for faster results treatments I may prescribe, one to two times for the first two weeks. After achieving stable results,  only once a month may be necessary to maintain your progress in healing.  I recommend you to come for Tuneup treatments as preventive health, especially on high stressful times, or when life thoughts at you, something unexpected, Acupuncture is an amazing therapy for your mental health.  

Acute conditions improve more quickly than chronic is beneficial you come for treatment as soon as possible after an injury, new symptom or health imbalance. 

 

  • Please arrive 5 minutes early, be hydrated, and have eaten a snack or meal within the last couple of hours.  
  • A gown or draping sheet will be provided if you are required to undress for your acupuncture session.  
  • Plan to the best of your ability to be unavailable by the electronic device for the duration of your appointment. We strive to make your visit as relaxing as possible and concentrate your focus on the healing moment.
  • Make sure you have some minutes of extra time after your appointment, to allow you to fully be awake after treatment. 



Be gentle with yourself after your appointment and take it easy! Drink plenty of water at room  temperature.  

Post-treatment care for acupuncture: avoid alcohol, caffeine, heavy exercise, very hot or cold baths, and stressful intellectual work for the rest of the day.  

Post-treatment care for cupping, gua-sha: avoid cold, wind, hot baths and strenuous exercise. After cupping, gua-sha, skin discoloration is a normal reaction of the treatment, and if present, generally resolves within a few days to a week.
