Appointments last approximately 60 minutes. After a 15-minute consultation to set goals and discuss patient history, a licensed acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles at targeted points on the client’s body. This process works to redirect energy, or chi, in order to treat conditions such as headaches, chronic pain, or nausea.
Acupuncturist and Chinese-herbal-medicine practitioner Stuart Dimson has a personal relationship with pain. After sustaining a work-related injury in 1992, his efforts to heal led him to receiving his first acupuncture treatment. It worked, and he hasn’t looked back since, changing his career to become a full-time acupuncturist.
Today, Dimson works to share that relief with others at Awakening Acupuncture. Besides the eponymous procedure, the center’s other treatments, such as hypnotherapy and moxibustion, work to support clients’ inner balance and gently shake awake their own healing mechanisms. Dimson and his colleagues can also provide traditional Chinese herbal medicine to supplement sessions.
