Acupuncture & Cupping & Gua Sha
Initial visit / 60 minutes Follow-up visits / 45 minutes Acupuncture opens your body’s nerve, lymphatic, and vascular channels, which allows proper signaling to be restored. This enables your body to deliver hormonal and nutritional resources, as well as remove metabolic wastes, which are both required for healing and to maintain health. Cupping and Gua Sha are methods for relieving pain and tension in the muscles. Acupuncture/Cupping/Gua Sha are effective for a variety of health concerns including, but not limited to chronic back pain, menopause symptoms, digestive concerns, and promotes relaxation and a general sense of well-being. It can be used as a stand alone or adjunct therapy to your healthcare plan at Onyx.
Your initial visit starts with a brief discussion of your relevant medical history, your current health concerns along with a limited physical examination including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) tongue and pulse diagnosis. Dr. Nichols will then develop an individualized acupuncture treatment plan. The number of sessions needed varies, however typically 4-6 sessions once per week are required to achieve full benefit.
