Acupuncture: see it in action

This is a video that we found that explains visually how we think of the Chi and energy flow that we all have; it also explains how acupuncture and needles can help release pain from your body.

What is acupuncture?

Jacques described acupuncture as "...a complete medical system that treats the mind, body, and spirit at the same time."  Then we asked Jacques some questions about his practice:

Q: Does it hurt?
A: Most patients experience an awareness of the needle followed by a sense of relaxation. Jacques does his best to massage the points where the needle is to go before inserting it.

Q: Does it work?
A: Acupuncture treatments are very effective at treating a wide variety of issues.

Q: How long do the treatments take to clear up the problem?
A: The usual course of treatment is four to six treatments depending on the nature of the illness. Some ailments need fewer treatments while some ailments need more. This is best discussed with Jacques at the first meeting.

Q: Can I continue to see my doctor while receiving acupuncture?
A: Absolutely! While chinese medicine is a complete medical system, it is also complementary with western medicine.
