YOUR ACUPUNCTURE SESSION AT REVIVAL
During an Acupuncture session, our therapists target specific points, guided by anatomical and physiological standards, manual inspection, and palpation. Stimulating these points trigger predictable physiological responses, impacting your neurophysiological, biochemical, and hormonal systems. This, in turn, alleviates symptoms, reduces pain, and supports your body’s internal regulation. We employ various techniques, including manual, mechanical, thermal, and electrotherapeutic stimulation to enhance your experience and outcomes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No, it doesn’t hurt!
Treatments are very relaxing, my needle technique can be as gentle or therapeutic as you would like. The majority of the times clients are so relax that it is normal to have a little “Acu-nap.”
We use very fine, high quality disposable needles which are often not felt upon insertion. You may feel a mild aching or heaviness sensation when a needle reaches the correct depth. When targeting muscles it is common to feel a muscle jump or twitch response. The sensations should be tolerable and the optimal goal is to maintain your relaxed breathing pattern.
Scientists and doctors have several proven theories to explain the benefits of Acupuncture.
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.
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.

Acupuncture works cumulatively in a series of treatments. We encourage you to experience what it has to offer by committing yourself to your treatment plan. With each treatment, improvements continue to build up from the last. If your symptoms return prior your next visit, contact our clinic to book as soon as possible.
Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments are very personal and customized, you may receive a different point prescription at each visit. I would provide you with a specific treatment plan for your needs and instructions to follow after each visit. Treatments work cumulative. For faster results, I would recommend one to two times for the first two weeks. After achieving stable results, I would recommend once a month to maintain your progress in healing. I highly recommend you book for a Tuneup treatments for preventive health, especially during high stressful times. Acupuncture is amazing therapy for your mental health.
Acute conditions improve more quickly than chronic. It is very beneficial if you could come in for treatment as soon as possible after an injury, or you experience a new symptom and/or health imbalances.
