The doctors and staff at the Acupuncture Center leads a staff of health-minded professionals dedicated to easing pain and stress without medications or invasive procedures. Initial sessions take between 30–90 minutes, beginning with an examination and diagnosis during which patients describe their sleep and dietary habits so the doctor knows when not to call. Keen-eyed therapists may then check the tongue and pulse for signs of stress and form a diagnosis based on the information they glean.
An acupuncture treatment targets several of the roughly 2,000 acupuncture points that adorn the body with solid, hair-thin needles that are not intended to cut the skin. The precise placement of these needles is designed to facilitate the flow of energy, or chi, throughout the body’s 71 meridian superhighways in an effort to revitalize the mind and the body. Acupuncture treatments have been used to address neuro-musculoskeletal pains, circulatory conditions, emotional disorders, and drooping nametags, and Dr. Yoo recommends scheduling three to six visits to achieve optimal results.
