Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of healthcare that aims to prevent and treat specific conditions by inserting very thin needles into points on the body.  Oriental medical theory believes that physical and

emotional stresses in everyday life can cause an imbalance of opposing forces called

yin and yang.  This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi)

along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy

is thought to flow.  Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi.  From a Western

aspect, we're taking this ancient technique and applying it into a modern medical

setting.  Acupuncture causes an increase in blood flow and release of endorphins

and chemicals that can decrease pain sensation.  The physical act of tapping the

needle in can relax trigger points and help relax muscle tension. 


Acupuncture can be extremely effective for headaches,

hip/knee/low back/neck pain, upper back tension, or stress/anxiety.

It is also a beneficial treatment for anyone preparing for an upcoming IUI/IVF

procedure for fertility.  Dr. Warner is a Fellow of the American Board of

Oriental Reproductive Medicine (FABORM). This additional board certification

enhances her ability to work closely with fertility specialists and couples preparing

to undergo IUI/IVF.  Acupuncture is used prior to these procedures to help lower

stress levels as well as increase blood circulation to the
reproductive organs. 


When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment, Dr. Warner will review your intake forms and you'll discuss your current condition or reason for seeking acupuncture treatment.  She'll also inquire about other aspects of your life, such as sleep, digestion, and stress, in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of your case.

Dr. Warner will look at your tongue, which is a basic diagnostic method of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points chosen will depend on your condition, but you can expect anywhere from 15-20 needles.  Once the needles are inserted and you are comfortable, treatments typically last between 30-45 minutes. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.  While the number of treatments required depends on the patient and condition, acute cases (such as an ankle sprain) typically require 3-5 visits, while chronic cases (such as migraines, chronic neck or back pain, anxiety) can require 8-10 visits initially, and then further care can be discussed if necessary.




Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is

applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue

into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping

brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping,

sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction

inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.


Guasha is a scraping technique that involves the cutaneous stimulation of the skin

in strokes using a smooth-edged instrument. The purpose of guasha is to

remove blood stagnation, which is considered pathogenic and a cause of pain.

This results in increased circulation and metabolic processes, and most

importantly improvement of pain, stiffness, or respiratory issues. This technique is

excellent for tight muscles and trigger points.
