How Do I Get Started?

The first visit to On-Point Acupuncture, PLLC is from 1 to 1 – 1/2 hours. At this time a patient intake form and a disclosure statement, required by the state of West Virginia, is completed. We then decide on a treatment plan after review of history and pulse and tongue diagnosis. We then make a treatment plan that fits your condition and lifestyle. This plan could include extra modalities besides acupuncture, dietary changes, exercise changes, and herbal use (either in pain patches or liniment form). We do not continue to treat our patients unless we observe reasonable improvement in the ailment.

Follow Up Care

After the initial office visit, follow-up treatments are scheduled. These typically last for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Other modalities can be added on to this treatment, such as e-stim, moxabustion, guasha, and tuina. Most injuries require treatment one to two times weekly. We will re-evaluate after six treatments. If no improvement is made, we will find a referral for you to receive a different modality of treatment.

Electrical Stimulation

Electro-acupuncture refers to the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture points on the body.  While electro-acupuncture may be used as a component of almost all acupuncture treatments, it is has garnered especially good results regarding the treatment of neurological diseases, chronic pain, spasms, and paralysis. Also, holistic sports medicine commonly uses electro-acupuncture for injuries. When combined with acupressure (the stimulation of acupuncture points with the use of the practitioner’s hands and gentle massage, instead of needles), electro-acupuncture has been proven to promote the flow of qi and blood, relieve pain, and warm the muscles, removing blood stasis (a blockage, or poor circulation).
