“Under the right conditions, the internal healing system naturally adjusts imbalances in the body with little interference from the outside.” Dr Tan
Tiny, disposable, sterile needles are placed in specific acupuncture points on the skin. $95
I was trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine Style Acupuncture and practiced it for the first eight years of my practice. During the course of my continuing education training, I had the good fortune to study meridian theory, also know as Dr Tan’s Balance Method, with Dr Tan. The information I learned was very different from the TCM style acupuncture that I was taught in school. For pain conditions, results are instant. I began utilizing the Balance Method in my practice and started seeing miraculous results. TCM gives good results, but for me, the Balance Method is my treatment of choice. It effects are immediate, and results are predictable. As a result I am unable to go back to my old way of treating.
Almost all treatment is performed on the arms and legs below the elbows and knees. I do not put needles into the injured area, rather I treat distally to heal the affected body part. For example, if you come in with tennis elbow, I will do acupuncture on the other elbow or either knee. This allows you to move the injured area and assess the change that has taken place.
Pediatric Acupuncture (Ages infants – 13 years old) in naples fl
While kids and needles do not usually peacefully coexist, acupuncture in children may not be as frightening for them as it sounds. We use a variety of techniques to help children become comfortable with the idea of the needles. We spend a lot of time explaining the treatment to children and their families. We may demonstrate the therapy on a stuffed animal or even our own hands to show children what to expect during the acupuncture session. We will describe the difference between the acupuncture needle and a typical injection or intravenous needle. Acupuncture needles are smaller and not hollow so they do not rip the skin like typical needles. It is relatively painless when done by a trained practitioner. Children are usually surprised at how little discomfort they actually feel, and typically become very relaxed or even sleep during the treatment. $50
