Acupuncture in Sedona Arizona

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one facet of Chinese Medicine that dates back over 3,000 years.  It involves the use of extremely fine, sterile, disposable needles, placed in specific anatomical points.  These points correspond to energetic meridians that comprise the whole body.   Depending on your condition, one of many points may be targeted.  By needling, acupuncture stimulates the flow of energy (qi) and blood throughout the body.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture has a long history of success for many ailments, and in many Chinese hospitals is practiced alongside Western medicine.  In the United States, the acupuncture model has been extensively studied and proven effective in treating many ailments.  Some conditions it is beneficial for include but are not limited to:  emotional and weight issues and numerous disorders of the following body systems:  circulatory, eyes, nose, throat, respiratory, gastrointestinal, gynecological, immune, musculoskeletal, nervous and urogenital.

What can I expect from my treatment?

During acupuncture sessions, most patients relax into a pleasant, pain free, restful state.  If changes occur between sessions, those changes will be addressed at each appointment.  Patients should wear loose, comfortable fitting clothing that allows access to acupuncture points.

How many acupuncture treatments do I need?

Dr. Rubiales finds that the number of treatments depends on the nature and length of the specific condition, as well as the patient’s overall health.  Some patients experience improvement immediately.  Others may experience relief in two to three sessions.  Some may require treatment that spans weeks, months or more.  Experience has shown that most conditions respond best with frequent visits at the beginning of treatment.
