Acupuncture is comprehensive healthcare that treats the whole self—from the root to the leaf

Acupuncture: What to Expect

Acupuncture by Devin Manning corrects disharmony throughout the self, from root to leaf. In each restorative session, Devin will address the acute condition that brought you in, as well as the underlying causes.

Acupuncture by Devin always begins with a conversation. Devin will want to know: What are the challenges you face? How do you feel in your day-to-day life? Besides overcoming the immediate obstacle, what do you ultimately hope to achieve? This first conversation will likely be longer and more involved than in subsequent meetings, after a plan of treatment has been formulated.

Since your comfort is paramount to the healing process, the acupuncture treatment is always performed in a peaceful and nurturing space. Special consideration such as heating pads, a foot warmer, and various pillows are employed to maximize each individual's experience.  

The entire self is treated by the range of therapies in Devin's repertoire: cupping, tuning fork vibration, micro-current, aroma, moxibustion, and hot stones complement and enhance acupuncture.

The needles are incredibly fine, and pass through the skin easily. As Devin finds your energetic path, you may experience a new sensation. Some describe it as a hum or vibration. Deep relaxation and equanimity usually follow.

As part of a holistic program of care, Devin may recommend supplements or herbal medicines, as well as changes to your diet.    

Please allow 90 minutes for each restorative treatment.
