“We practice patient-centered holistic medicine. It means all treatment plans are comprehensive and tailored to the individual. It is beyond Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is the way medicine should be.”

What do we do?

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatments stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanisms – something no other medicine can do.  Acupuncture needles stimulate the flow of Qi (Chee) in the body to clear stagnation, relieve stress, and promote homeostasis.  They prompt the body to release its natural pain relievers and they communicate with the brain in ways that we have observed but are still trying to understand.  Acupuncture needles are generally retained for 20-45 minutes.

Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine is a strong, safe, and effective form of natural medicine. At Noe Acupuncture we have full confidence in the quality standards of our herb suppliers.   We carry herbal granules and tinctures from esteemed and trusted brands like Evergreen Herbs, Legendary Herbs, KW Botanicals, Kan Herbs, and Golden Flower Herbs.
Herbs are prescribed to address individual imbalances and should always be taken under the supervision of a licensed practitioner. Herbs should be taken as prescribed and any new medications should be mentioned to the practitioner immediately.

Muscle and Tendon Relaxing Manual Therapy

Muscle and Tendon Relaxing Manual Therapy is deeply rooted in TCM Meridian Theory. Only practiced under detailed diagnosis and solid medical knowledge, can acupressure massage be most effective. Contrast to other massage styles, acupressure massage is much deeper and more focused. Some people new to acupressure massage may find it intense but the relaxation and therapeutic value is beyond typical “back rub”. For certain conditions, such as spinal misalignment, we incorporate various techniques from Thai massage to help stretch the muscle back into balance.
We usually do acupressure massage accompanying acupuncture because both are rooted in Meridian Theory. Combining both allow repeated complementary stimulation which will compound the total effect.

Office Visit:
When you come in for your first visit please be sure to have eaten before you arrive.  Also wear comfortable clothing.  The first visit will entail a detailed discussion about your health concerns and your past health history.  The first appointment will be approximately 1 1/2 hours.  The follow-up treatments range from 45 minutes to 1 hour. Since every person is unique in their own condition, the numbers of treatments will vary.

In addition to acupuncture, your visit may include other treatment modalities such as cupping, moxibustion (burning herbs to heat acupoints), auricular therapy (ear acupuncture), herbal consultations and nutritional counseling.

Insurance:
As the medical community increasingly recognizes the benefits of acupuncture, more insurance providers and PPO’s are covering all or part of the cost of treatments.  Health insurance policies vary, and should be reviewed to determine what benefits are provided. If you have insurance that covers Acupuncture the office will bill for you.

Once you have made your first appointment, you will be emailed a health history form.  Please fill out the form and bring it with you on your first visit.  This information that you provide will be helpful in treating your condition.
