How we help

When you arrive for your appointment, we will ask about your specific symptoms. We will also ask about your diet, lifestyle, and give a full-body examination. Everyone’s digestive system is unique, and we personalize treatment accordingly. In general, the doctor inserts four to ten hair-thin needles, around half an inch deep. The needles may not be placed near the stomach at all, depending on your situation. You will then rest lying down for 10-30 minutes. A normal treatment regime includes 15 weekly sessions.
