The best place for acupuncture in Centennial, CO

Acupuncture is a very popular form of alternative medicine and a natural healing method that has been used around the world for over 5000 years. It is a gentle, effective way to relieve chronic and debilitating conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, menstrual cramps, insomnia, and most injuries.

When receiving an acupuncture treatment from one of our certified acupuncturists, there are little to no risks. We use disposable, sterilized acupuncture needles to alleviate the risk of infection. Depending on the reason you are seeking treatment, you can expect to see an improvement in as little as one to eight sessions.

Also Available: Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN)

Dry needling is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscles at the trigger points causing the pain referral. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.

What to Expect

One of our acupuncture specialists will gently insert very thin needles through the skin along various energy meridians to relieve you of stress, pain, or discomfort. From head to toe, these points are located all over the body. Many report little to no discomfort during the needle insertion. The needles will stay in place for 10 to 30 minutes. A standard consultation lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.

On your first visit, we will request that you complete our patient forms. Our acupuncture specialist will ask questions pertaining to your health history, stress levels, concerns, and any pain or discomfort you have been experiencing. The specialist may also examine the shape and color of your tongue, the color of your face and the strength of your pulse.


How to Prepare

If you are able to wear loose fitting clothes such as exercise clothing it would be helpful, if not we have medical gowns and shorts available for you. No additional preparation is necessary. Please consider printing and completing our patient forms in advance and bringing them to your appointment.
