The licensed acupuncture therapists at Virginia University of Oriental Medicine draw on centuries-old holistic treatments to help remedy maladies from headaches to arthritis. During a 20-minute personalized consultation and Oriental physical examination, pin pushers interrogate the abdomen, tongue, and pulse to identify specific areas of pain, set a customized course of action, and diagnose previously unnoticed bellybutton tattoos. While clients recline, practitioners meticulously place hair-thin, sanitized needles across strategic points of the body, which takes about five minutes. Over the next 20–30 minutes, patients may feel a localized dull ache or a series of warm tingling sensations as the needles reinvigorate and reroute detoured energy centers. The treatment ends as the epidermal styluses are slowly removed, sending reenergized clients into the world to enjoy everyday activities, such as pogoing to the water park.
Virginia University of Oriental Medicine Clinic
Virginia University of Oriental Medicine was founded to introduce traditional East Asian medicine to Western practitioners and the community. When the licensed acupuncturists aren't leading classes and clinical training in acupuncture and herbology, they practice their craft on patients with complaints ranging from anxiety to high blood pressure.
