Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine - a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions....
Experience the flow of energy is amazing!
More importantly, acupuncture is to wake up our own system to eliminate things which give us trouble, then regain our energy back! “PAIN” means meridian's Qi is blocked. Cold weather, nervousness, improper use of our body, poor diet habit, lack of exercice, stress, ignorance to the signals sending out from our own body, etc. All of above can cause PAIN.

What should I expect during the first treatment?

Once the diagnoses is established, treatment plan is decided and you will start experiencing the flow of energy.
Selected points are cleaned with 70% alcohol cotton balls, then sterilized one time use only needles are inserted to help your energy flow/Qi.
In general, needles will be stayed twenty to thirty minutes. However, in some cases, they will be left for just a few minutes or up to an hour.
Sometimes an electrical current machine is applied to enhance your energy flow.
After 20 to 30 minutes, needles are removed and acupuncture session is finished.

Peter Hess Sound Massage
According to Tibetan teachings, the world and man were created through primeval vibrations. The world is sound, man is sound. When our organs and tissues are free of blockages, the sound waves spread freely and exit through our toes, fingertips, or tips of hair. However, our body is usually not free of blockages. Numerous unsolved problems, stress, worries build up blockages. We become unpleasant and with all kinds of pain.
Harmonious sounds and gentle vibrations create a deep healing relaxation.
During the session, your brain enters quickly into alpha state of mind which is a relaxed state of mind that allows you to be more receptive, open, creative and less critical.
