Start Feeling Great…. Today.
Far too often, we don’t take steps to improve our health until a problem arises. Even then, we look for ways to regain our health, and don’t focus on how to maintain it. Being healthy is more than feeling free of chronic or acute illness or discomfort. It is your body functioning at its highest level.
You only get one body and you deserve to look and feel your best. Whether you are looking to improve or maintain your health, incorporating acupuncture, massage therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and other good habits can help you do that. One of the best investments you can make is in caring for your own well-being.
We so often get caught up in the daily activities of life that we neglect our bodies until they demand our attention. It can be difficult to get into a wellness routine, and find time to exercise, eat healthily, and see your practitioner. You are worth the time and effort, and a little time invested now is a lot easier to manage than a lot of time lost due to illness or injury that could have been prevented.
Practitioners of acupuncture and TCM look at wellness and health on multiple levels—how the body, mind, and spirit all work together. At Affinity Acupuncture, we will work with you to get your body functioning at its highest possible level. We will examine multiple levels of your wellness to identify different lifestyle factors that might be affecting your health. In addition to treatments of acupuncture, massage, and other modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we can discuss how nutrition, exercise, supplements, and more can be incorporated into your daily routine to increase your health.
The wellness decisions you make today will have a direct impact on your future. By partnering with Affinity Acupuncture, we can get you on your way to a healthier tomorrow.
Many patients begin acupuncture for relief of pain, discomfort, and other symptoms. This is referred to as Relief Care. It allows the body to begin the healing process, with each visit building on the progress made in previous visits. Acupuncture treatments may also include other elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, such as herbs, cupping, Tui Na, and consultation on diet and exercise.
The repetition of Relief Care visits may be necessary to continue the reduction of your symptoms. There is no set rule for how often you will need Relief Care visits—it depends on the individual, condition(s) receiving treatment, lifestyle, and other aspects of health. Some individuals need multiple appointments per week, while others require two or three visits in a month.
After Relief Care is completed, and signs and symptoms are reduced, the next stage is Corrective Care. This phase maintains and supports the progress made thus far, addresses underlying problems to your condition, and establishes a foundation for a deeper level of healing.
Maintenance and Wellness Care
With this level completed, you can move on to Maintenance and Wellness Care. It preserves the progress that you have made, much like changing the oil in a car keeps the car running smoothly. Visits may be monthly, every other month, or even seasonal. These treatments continue to strengthen the body and help keep you healthy and less vulnerable to illness. Like regular dental check-ups, regular acupuncture sessions help to identify little issues before they become big problems.
Preventative care is a great way to proactively take charge of your health and build up resistance to illness. While working with your practitioner, you might discover factors that could be having a negative impact on your overall health
