Welcome to Catalyst Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing modality consisting of an array of therapies including acupuncture, herbal medicine and cupping. For over 4000 years this holistic approach to medicine has been used to combat acute and chronic illnesses by balancing the body, mind, and spirit.

Acupuncture is designed to address the underlying cause of your dysfunction without heavy reliance on Western medication. It is known to decrease the body’s stress response and induce a calming effect on the nervous system by interrupting the “fight or flight” reaction to harmful events. It is also known to assist the body’s immune system through promoting microcirculation around the areas of injury or pain. Adding herbal formulas and functional medicine recalibrates the body and
decreases inflammation, allowing for maximum healing, both inside and out.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Does it hurt? No, it does not hurt. During the treatment you may experience sensations of mild tingling around the insertion point or a heavier soreness deeper in the muscles being treated. Our acupuncturists have been extensively trained to find the right points on the body needed for decreased pain through muscle relaxation, improved circulation, and decreased inflammation.

What can Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture treat? All injuries and internal imbalances can benefit from the incorporation of acupuncture and herbal therapy.

How many sessions will it take to feel better? There is no easy answer to this question
because every person is unique and requires
different lengths of treatment. People get treated
weekly, twice a month, once a month and
less depending on the situation. On average,
for every year a condition existed, a month of
regular treatment is required.
