Our aim is to help you feel at ease from the moment you arrive.
Allow us to get to know you, and your goals. We will ask you questions about your current complaint along with other aspects of your lifestyle and health history to understand the root of your symptoms.
We will then work through a detailed examination by looking at your movement patterns, joint range of motion and muscle balance to determine the root cause of your discomfort.
Next we expertly craft treatments to address the imbalances we find using a combination of healing techniques:
Traditional Acupuncture and Moxa
Orthopedic Acupuncture - Dry needling
Elecro - Acupuncture
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
You will leave your first session with a clear plan forward
We create your treatment plan to achieve optimal results. We give you a clear idea of how many sessions are recommended, along with some rehab exercises, diet and lifestyle recommendations and a realistic assessment of how we can help you.
What conditions can it help?Our focus at Eldorado Healing Arts is combining acupuncture with bodywork, and electro-medicne to help people with musculoskeletal conditions and pain. However, since all systems in the body are interconnected our treatments can support overall health that creates optimal conditions for heath and healing of all body-mind systems.
How many treatments will I need?Each person will respond differently to treatment. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond. The usual course of treatment we recommend in 2 times a week for 4 weeks before we re-evaluate. Our goal with treatment is to increase your self-healing potential by increasing joint range of motion, tissue health, nervous system function and assist in re-organizing the subtle energy systems.
Will it help me?Every condition is different and every patient responds differently to therapy. That said, our treatments are beneficial for supporting the optimal healing potential of the body. In Asian cultures, acupuncture is widely accepted as a part of one's ongoing health regimen, which is a major reason why these societies have long enjoyed great health and longevity. Recent scientific research into the mechanisms of acupuncture has shown it capable of treating specific problems as well as increasing the overall systemic health and potential for self healing of an individual.
Will the acupuncture needles hurt?Most people find the experience relaxing and uplifting and some even fall asleep for the duration of the treatment. Although people experience different levels of sensitivity, we will work very closely with you to make sure your experience is comfortable and positive. Acupuncture needles are 25-50 times thinner than a hypodermic needle; they are so thin that several acupuncture needles can go into the middle of a hypodermic needle. We use a gentle needling technique in our clinic. Some people feel nothing at all, while others experience a brief moment of discomfort as the needle penetrates the skin. This may be followed by a mild sensation of heaviness as the body responds to the treatment.
ConfidentialityAll information gathered within the context of treatment is held in strict confidence. It will not be released without your written consent.
PaymentPayment is expected at the time of the visit unless other arrangements have been made in advance. We accept cash, check, Venmo and credit cards. We do not bill insurance, but can assist you with documentation for your reimbursement from your insurance company.
AppointmentsWe make every effort to remain on schedule. We believe that respect between patient and practitioner includes respect for each other's time. If you are late, your remaining time may not be sufficient for a full treatment, so treatment will be tailored to fit within the time available or you have the option to reschedule. Occasionally, there are situations that arise that cause us to run over. If we are late, it will not effect the time of your treatment. If you have time constraints, please let us know.
PreparationIt is recommended that you: 1. Hydrate yourself before each session by drinking 1 quart of water. 2. Wear loose fitting clothing to appointments for your comfort and to make acupuncture points accessible. You may bring a pair of shorts or loose undershirt to change into. 3. Give yourself enough time to not be rushed before and after the session.

You may leave a message on our voice mail or email to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
