1. What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a clinically-proven therapy that focuses on improving the flow of Qi, the vital energy circulating throughout the body. 

Disruptions in Qi can provoke numerous disruptive physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. The foundation of acupuncture is the belief that balanced and properly-flowing Qi is essential for optimal health and wellness.

Acupuncture restores the flow of Qi through meridians, the channels that connect to form a complex energy network in your body.  During acupuncture, Dr. Lee stimulates certain points along the meridians to facilitate optimal energy flow and promote natural healing.  

At Pearl River Acupuncture, Dr. Lee has broad-ranging acupuncture training in many acupuncture approaches, including Korean four points sa-am acupuncture and facial acupuncture, as well as specialized skills in cupping, gua sha, tui na, and herbal medicine.  Dr. Lee customizes holistic (whole-body) treatments for every patient’s specific needs. 

2. What problems can acupuncture treat?

At Pearl River Acupuncture, experienced acupuncturist Dr. Lee treats many problems with acupuncture, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Neurological disorders such as neuropathy
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive issues
  • Women’s health issues, such as menopause symptoms
  • Immune system weakness
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Aging skin

In addition, Dr. Lee can support other treatments through acupuncture.  For example, many cancer patients seek oncology support at Pearl River Acupuncture, as acupuncture can reduce the side effects of patients who are going through chemotherapy or other oncology treatments. 

Another example of acupuncture as a supportive treatment is the unique plans that Dr. Lee offers for patients going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI).  Acupuncture can increase uterine blood flow, lessen anxiety, and modulate immune factors to boost the success rate of assisted fertility procedures. 

3. Does acupuncture hurt?

In the hands of a highly skilled professional, acupuncture doesn’t hurt. Dr. Lee uses ultra-thin sterile needles and has a very gentle acupuncture needling technique.  She makes the process a calming and restorative one instead of a scary or uncomfortable one. 

In fact, Dr. Lee has many patients who are scared of needles at first.  But, after their first acupuncture session, they relax and feel comfortable quickly, leaving their fears behind. 

Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique with a long history of remarkable results.  If you’re interested in this natural treatment approach, set up your consultation with gentle acupuncture expert Dr. Lee by calling the office or clicking the provided online booking feature now.
