At Abundant Health, your full-body tune-up consists of a 15–20 minute consultation followed by 20 to 30 minutes of treatment. One of the friendly, experienced acupuncturists will start with a casual consultation to determine your main pains and the goals of the treatment. By performing a tongue assessment, feeling your pulse, and checking for irregularities in your abdomen, your acupuncturist will be able to determine what treatment methods will be best for alleviating your malfunctioning microchip. Acupuncture treatment consists of inserting small, thin needles into specific points on your body called meridians. These points are situated along channels where energy, or Qi (like "cheese," without the tasty "se" finish), flows throughout the body. Many people find acupuncture a relaxing and restorative treatment that can effectively alleviate many conditions, such as pain, stress, asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, back pain, infertility, and more.
