You’re feeling… run-down. You’re not sleeping enough. Maybe you suffer from migraines or chronic back pain. Maybe you’ve been struggling with anxiety, but you hide it from the people close to you. Or it’s possible you just feel that something internal is off balance.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is believed that when your qi, or life energy, is unbalanced, your physical and mental health suffers. TCM treatments like acupuncture seek to restore this balance. Acupuncture allows the body’s energy systems to realign into healthy patterns and for qi to flow seamlessly. It activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Some of the amazing benefits of acupuncture are pain relief, improved sleep, better digestive function, and a decrease in stress.
There are two different types of sessions, community and private acupuncture. Both offer incredible benefits in different settings, and whichever you choose is up to your personal comfort level.
In community acupuncture sessions, you’re typically in a large room with multiple patients being treated at the same time. This is great if you want to bring along friends or family members to your appointment or enjoy the communal spirit of being around others during treatment. Community acupuncture may focus on one particular condition or area of pain and will target points on the hands, feet, arms, and legs. Depending on the clinic, this treatment may be offered at a lower cost than private acupuncture.
Private acupuncture takes place in a private room, with just the acupuncturist and patient preset. This treatment offers the greatest amount of privacy and discretion, for those that feel more comfortable being treated alone. There is also the benefit of the high level of individual attention you receive from the acupuncturist, which makes it easy to communicate your individual needs, your past medical history, physical symptoms, and what you hope to get out of the session. In a private session you will generally receive acupuncture points on the front or back side of your body. While this type of treatment may cost a little more, private sessions may feel more leisurely and thorough for some.
