What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture - Acupuncture and Bioresonance in Custer, South Dakota in Asheville, NCSeveral thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating needles at specific points on the body, I am able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itself.

What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

Jeanne Soleille L.Ac. offers Bioresonance & Acupuncture in Asheville, NCMany first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won't. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when inserted. When  gently stimulated the needles may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls de qi. Patients often describe de qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an "electrical" sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment may be necessary. For acute conditions you can expect to have 5 or more  treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief after just the first few. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis ( Muscle pain/trigger point pain may be resolved in one or two treatments using a percussor.  Please see page on Trigger Points)

Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment please wear loose fitting clothing so that points on elbows and knees can be accessed if needed . After discussing  your condition, your pulses will be taken and tongue will be looked at - these are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points choosen will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 6 to 12 needles. Once the needles are inserted, you will them be able to lie comfortably for 15-20 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.

What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture works by activating the body's own healing powers, so it can be beneficial for many health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) has documented many symptoms, diseases, and conditions that have been shown in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture. Below are some common conditions I treat, but please feel free to contact me about your specific health condition.
