Alpenglow Acupuncture offers a variety of acupuncture and complementary modality services.
Initial Acupuncture Appointment
This will be your first visit with us. We will take a complete medical history followed by an acupuncture treatment. When scheduling, we will ascertain how long of an appointment to schedule based on the complexity of your case, and what complementary modalities we may add to your treatment.
Standard Acupuncture Appointment
This appointment type allows for a typical consultation period followed by acupuncture treatment. It may also include adjunct therapies such as cupping, tui na, moxa or injection therapy. This appointment type can be used for touching base after a series of Tune-Up sessions. This is also a good option for going over basic diet, nutritional, and lifestyle recommendations.
Tune-Up Acupuncture Appointment
These sessions are for regular, frequent follow-up treatments following a standard appointment. You will have a brief dialog with your practitioner about any changes in your condition followed by your acupuncture treatment.
The Works Acupuncture Appointment
In this appointment type, we can have a longer consultation, add several adjunct therapies or do a two-sided treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Appointment
Typically done in a series of 10, cosmetic acupuncture works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing circulation and collagen production in the face.
Initial Pediatric Acupressure
Sho-Ni-Shin is a Japanese technique for treating children that does not require the use of needles. This technique is performed with non-invasive tools that lightly rub, tap or roll over the acupuncture points and channels. Children are not bothered by this treatment, and in fact most of them grow to love it. We also use acutonics with children.
5 Element Acupuncture Appointment
Five Element Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine that looks to the wisdom of nature and the elements (Water, Wood, Earth, Fire, and Metal) in order to treat the whole person in body, mind, and spirit. By balancing and harmonizing the elements as they exist in the individual, receiving Five Element Acupuncture can be a catalyst for personal health and well-being, deep healing, and transformation. Personalized treatments include a generous amount of time for check-in, acupuncture, aromatherapy, moxibustion, gentle bodywork, and singing bowls.
NAET treats allergies on a bioenergetic level. When a substance that we are sensitive to enters our energy field, we can have any number of reactions, from those we typically associate with allergies, ie: runny nose, itchy eyes and scratchy throat to those we might not expect, ie: headaches, digestive disorders and changes in mood. NAET changes the body’s reactions to these substances by reprogramming the nervous system and resetting the energy field.
NAET Initial Acupuncture Appointment
In this appointment, we will use kinesiology to test for possible sensitivities, followed by treatment of a specific allergen.
NAET Follow-Up Acupuncture Appointment
After your initial appointment, we will treat each sensitivity
one at a time.
Mini Acutonics Appointment
Based on Chinese medicine theory, Acutonics© recognizes that disease arises from blockages in the energy or Qi flow of the body. Tuning forks are struck on a rubber activator held by the practitioner and then placed on acupuncture, acupressure or trigger points on the patient's body. Acutonics© stimulates and balances the body's physical, emotional and mental energy fields, much like acupuncture, without the use of needles. This is an effective and relaxing modality, which is suitable for children and adults with chronic or acute conditions.
