What Is Acupuncture?
An ancient Chinese medicine technique that began more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is still widely recognized as a holistic solution to improve overall health. Acupuncture focuses on the Chinese concept of Qi (chi), which is defined as the vital energy that flows along connection pathways within the body called meridians. The treatment works by inserting tiny needles into various pressure points along the meridians in order to increase the flow of energy and promote balance. The highly skilled acupuncturists at Cameron Wellness and Spa are dedicated to helping patients experience relief from pain, anxiety, stress, and more. We invite you to schedule a consultation with our team in Salt Lake City, UT.

Who is a candidate for acupuncture?
Acupuncture is suitable for people of all ages and can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. However, it is important to consult with a trained practitioner to ensure that this treatment is appropriate for your needs. Cameron Wellness and Spa will perform a thorough evaluation while asking about your symptoms and acupunture goals. Please inform us about any medical conditions, medications, or allergies so we can provide the safest and most effective treatment possible.
What to Expect with Acupuncture
Prior to performing acupuncture, you will have a consultation at our office in Salt Lake City, UT. We will learn about your health history, as well as any current conditions or pain you have been experiencing. Acupuncture can be custom-tailored to treat a variety of health conditions, including anxiety, depression, digestive problems, respiratory conditions, autoimmune diseases, and injuries. On the day of your treatment, we recommend wearing loose clothing and drinking plenty of water. Your acupuncturist will then place tiny, pre-sterilized needles into specific areas of the body, which may remain in place for up to 30 minutes. We will let you know how many acupuncture sessions are recommended as part of a personalized treatment plan.
Does acupuncture hurt?
No, acupuncture does not hurt. You may feel a slight prick when the needle is inserted, but most patients at Cameron Wellness and Spa report feeling little discomfort. Some may even find the experience relaxing. If you do feel any kind of pain, please let your acupuncturist know so they can adjust the treatment accordingly.
How do I prepare for acupuncture?
There is no need for any special preparation before acupuncture. However, it is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing so the acupuncturist can easily access the areas that need to be treated. It is also important to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated before your appointment, as this can help reduce discomfort.
