The Science of Acupunture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective healing art backed by more than two thousand years of practice and research. It is used worldwide both as a primary and adjunctive treatment for a wide range of conditions, for both body and mind. Generally, both children and adults find acupuncture treatment to be a relaxing experience. This is especially so after they get over any initial hesitation regarding needling.

Diagnosis Methods

While there are somewhat standard treatment protocols for many conditions, the clinical success of acupuncture is related – at least in part – to the wide range of diagnostic signs and symptoms which are taken into effect when looking at an imbalance. For a condition such as arthritis affecting the knees, Dr. Lim will look at your tongue, check your pulse, ask about your diet and lifestyle, palpate your spine, etc. This range of diagnostic information allows your doctor to develop a treatment strategy that is unique to you and your experience of a particular condition.

Does It Hurt?

Acupuncture points are chosen according to your specific diagnosis. Once the needles are in, most of our patients feel a sense of deep relaxation & even sleepiness!

Your 1st Visit

Generally, your first visit is longer than your followup visits or at the very least it entails quite a bit of questioning. Your treatment may be a little shorter on your first visit.

The initial questioning is a very important part of the care that Dr. Lim will provide to you. While many of the questions may seem entirely irrelevant to your condition, for example asking the quality of your bowel movements when you came in for back pain or your psychological state when you came in for menstrual problems, there are very good reasons behind the questions. The answers you provide to the questions, along with other basic diagnostic tools such as looking at your tongue and feeling your pulse allow the acupuncturist to tailor the treatment specifically to you.
