Steve was fantastic at inserting the needles. I was completely calm by the time the 3rd needle went in. When my session was done, which was well over an hour, I immediately felt BETTER. The rest of the day, my fatigue was less severe and I was able to relax more. My experience with Steve was better than any treatment I have received in the last two years.
Fine, sterile needles are placed at specific locations on the arms, legs, and head to stimulate the peripheral and central nervous system to regulate pain, inflammation, and various internal disorders such as poor digestion, insomnia, stress and anxiety.
Specifically, acupuncture has a profound effect on the various physiological systems by exciting or calming the “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” wings of the Autonomic Nervous System.
The classical style of acupuncture that Steve practices utilizes points on the arms/hands (below the elbows), legs/feet (below the knees), and head/ears. This allows the patient to experience acupuncture treatments without having to disrobe or wear a gown.
