During an initial consultation, certified acupuncturists learn the patient’s health history and provide a diagnosis. Each 30- to 90-minute acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of tiny, sterile needles into some of the more than 2,000 acupuncture points on the body to stimulate the flow of energy. Acupuncture treatments have been used to quell neuromusculoskeletal pains, circulatory conditions, emotional disorders, and signs of aging. The initial visit includes consultation, examination, diagnosis, and treatment.<p>
During the anti-aging acupuncture treatment, a dermal roller pierces the skin with micro needles in order to trigger the body to heal itself and produce collagen. Most clients report feeling little to no pain. Immediately following the treatment, skin may appear red and feel slightly warmer and tighter. These side effects should start to subside after a few hours, and most clients experience only a slight redness the next day. The dermal roller can improve skin tone, fade fine lines, and erase hyperpigmentation.<p>
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s Kim Yoo strives to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. The hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. Dr. Yoo also employs moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
