Acupuncture in St. Clair West

At Health Haven, we’re proud to offer focused acupuncture therapy for patients of all walks of life.

Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine, Acupuncture is designed to clear the inner pathways of your body, removing congestion and allowing you to function to the best of your ability, which is achieved through placing thin needles at various points on the body.

These needles help your body to reestablish correct and healthy communication between different parts of your body, bring itself back in to homeostasis, and relieve your pathways to proper function, resulting in natural wellness. Acupuncture can decrease inflammation, regulate hormones, and increase healthy blood circulation.

We’re proud to offer acupuncture that’s focused and unique to each individual patient, and we promise to dive deep to uncover exactly what’s going on in your body so that we can recommend the best possible care plan for success.

  • Headaches

Frequently Asked Questions

We’re here to help you understand every aspect of your health care plan to the fullest. If you have questions about acupuncture, we invite you to read through our frequently asked questions below. If you’d like to request additional information or would like to ask something not covered on this page, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Absolutely not. In fact, most of our patients find their sessions to be extremely relaxing-some remarking that it’s the best they feel all day. The needles used are extremely thin, and we often describe them as ‘hair’ like-they’re so fine that you may not even feel them being inserted, so there’s no need to worry about being ‘poked’.

Do I need a referral for acupuncture?

No, you’re free to simply call us up and book an appointment. We do accept insurance and are happy to verify your benefits if you’d like.

How many sessions will I need before I feel better?

Because each person is unique, and the length of treatment may also depend on the severity and duration of the issue, it’s difficult to say exactly how many sessions you’ll need before your complaint is resolved. However, for acute conditions, we generally like to see patients a couple of times a week at first, and will gradually reduce their frequency of care as the symptoms clear up and root cause is addressed. You can expect a minimum of 3 treatments, possibly 10-12 sessions for subacute issues, and longer for long-term chronic conditions, or those with less energy for the body to direct to their healing. In the meantime, you will notice a general improvement in your overall wellbeing.

What can acupuncture help with?

Acupuncture has helped patients just like you experience a wide range of benefits, working to help your body’s systems do their jobs more smoothly and effectively, which can often improve things like: insomnia, headaches, anxiety, emotional issues, digestive issues, gynecological conditions like painful or irregular periods, peri/menopausal symptoms, low energy levels, pain and so many more.
