Frequent Question //
How Many Treatments Will It Take?
Usually, a series of treatments are necessary to resolve a condition. Each case and condition is treated individually. A consultation is required to determine requirements. Treatments can be between 45 to 90 minutes in length with the first consultation usually lasting longer. Most conditions can be treated successfully within 3 to 8 visits.
Does Acupuncture Treatment Hurt?
Most patients have stated that there is little or no pain as very fine, sterile, disposable needles are used. Our sterile needles are single use and disposed of through medical waste services.
How long does a treatment last?
An initial visit for a new patient lasts approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours. For follow up visit and established patient visits last approximately 30 to 45 minutes in length.
What kind of Physician is Mark Brinson? Is he a MD?
He is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, not a medical doctor. While the educational programs are very similar in many ways, only 200 hours of pharmacology are completed in Chinese Medical Programs and 1000 hours of Chinese Herbs and Formulas are added. His post-graduate program was 3000 hours and 4 years.
Patient Resources //
For hundreds of years before the X-rays, MRIs, CAT Scans, blood labs or any other modern medical test, physicians accurately diagnosed and treated the entire range of conditions using only their hands, minds and simple tools from nature. The time they spent evaluating their patients enabled them to treat with often remarkable results. We continue that superior tradition of time-intensive treatment and evaluation today. We use techniques from both eastern and western medical traditions to treat you, the person as well as your condition fully. We do on occasion order modern testing or refer your condition to other professionals. Our main goal for you is results!
Traditional Chinese Medicine
The techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping, Medical Manipulations (TuiNa) and Gua Sha have been refined over thousands of years. We are now finding the scientific explanations for these modalities but what really matters is the consistent results that are experienced in internal medicine as well as pain relief. Treatments are gentle, safe and effective.
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses specific combinations of herbs to create powerful formulas. Individualized prescriptions match your signs, symptoms, emotional temperament and overall composition of your body. We treat you, the individual not just the illness. The right diagnosis plus the right formula always yields results! We may prescribe a few days or a few weeks.
Creativity + Hard Work
