Acupuncture is an ancient medical approach that involves pressing tiny needles into specific areas of your body to bring you relief and healing. While it may sound counterintuitive or even scary at first, acupuncture is not the painful experience you may be imagining.
This practice has been studied and used for well over 2,500 years. It continues to provide relief for many today, whether they’re suffering from depression, allergies, or morning sickness. At One Agora Integrative Health Clinic, our practitioners are licensed and trained so you experience the maximum benefits of what acupuncture has to offer.

Given how many patients tout acupuncture as a “miracle” treatment, you may be wondering how it could help you.
The philosophy behind acupuncture is to restore the energy and balance within your body. It does this through inserting fine needles into specific points on your body. While some patients say they may slightly feel the needles at first, that feeling quickly subsides. In fact, many people don’t feel the needles at all.
Once the needles are in, the body starts to respond. The placement of these tiny needles signals a micro-injury which then prompts your body to...
Patients respond to acupuncture treatments differently. Some may feel relaxed while others could feel more energized. Our patients commonly report feeling balanced and more content after an acupuncture session.
The power behind acupuncture is that it doesn’t only treat one symptom or condition. Many who face multiple health issues or symptoms turn to acupuncture.
Acupuncture can help you find relief from many issues, some of which include:
Some have even turned to acupuncture to help with multiple sclerosis and cancer treatments.
At One Agora, we also offer facial rejuvenation acupuncture. This specialized treatment includes acupuncture along with facial Gua Sha. These treatments are designed to:
Once the needles are placed on your face and body, your body increases blood flow to those areas. This helps stimulate the production of collagen, which promotes healthier looking skin.
Once the needles are removed, Gua Sha then helps flush away excess fluids from your face, giving your skin a renewed, glowing complexion.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits, facial rejuvenation acupuncture can also treat tension headaches, TMJ, and Bell’s palsy.
You can expect to experience optimal results with a series of 10 or more sessions. While this treatment is effective for many, we don’t recommend it for patients who have:
We also ask that patients wait to schedule their appointments if they’ve recently had Botox®, laser resurfacing, or microdermabrasion.
If you’re new to acupuncture, we understand that you might be feeling a little nervous. While you might initially feel mild discomfort, once the needles are in, most patients don’t feel anything at all. In fact, many of our patients find their sessions to be relaxing.
Acupuncture sessions at One Agora typically last between 45 minutes and 1 hour. We can also pair your acupuncture with other therapies, like Gua Sha, electrostimulation, and food or herbal recommendations.
For the maximum benefits of acupuncture, we recommend one to two sessions a week at the beginning. As you start to notice improvement, treatments can then be spaced out. Our licensed acupuncturists are available to help create a customized plan for your health needs and goals.
