Prior to seeing Carolyn for acupuncture, I had been in severe left shoulder pain due to a shoulder fracture. After only 3 acupuncture treatments I was able to eliminate a prescribed strong narcotic for pain relief. I continue to see Carolyn for weekly acupuncture treatments and occasional bodywork. There are no words that I can think of to describe the amazing healing and relief I have felt each time I have had a treatment by Carolyn. She is one of those healing practitioners that are the "Real Deal."
What are your safety protocols?
As an acupuncturist, I firmly maintain industry best practices for sterility and safety. In the age of COVID, these practices extend to include the following:
masks are worn at all times by practitioner and patient
all touch points and therapeutic surfaces are sanitized between patients
patients are requested to wash their hands before the start of their session
increased ventilation and HEPA air filters are standard
Does it hurt?
The experience of receiving acupuncture needles is that they are virtually painless. The body, upon receiving the needles, initiates its own pain relieving response, with patients feeling at most a twitch or a dull ache. This subsides as the parasympathetic nervous system awakens for a net effect that is a relaxed nervous system.
How does billing insurance work?
What are the benefits of doing a large package versus coming just once?
Our bodies are in a state of constant change: breaking down wastes and rebuilding healthy tissues. Even an ailment that appeared 'overnight' has likely been in the making for some time, given that we are wired to compensate and manage our imbalances until the body sends an undeniable signal (pain! discomfort!). For lasting results, the process needed to unwind holding patterns and uncover the myriad contributions to the current state of dis-ease is best addressed over successive sessions.
