After several visits I know I am in the very competent hands of a caring health provider. Cynthia’s approach treats the whole person, which makes so much sense. My sinus and other problems are clearly improved and I am now aware of various ways I can work on improving my overall health and immune system. I am grateful to the kind person who recommended Cynthia to me! Pat G. 11/28/2016

Cynthia is a great listener, which, I believe, to be THE critical issue missing in quality health care. Her ability to listen makes her ability to provide the optimal treatment for your particular issue. Highly recommend! Leah R. 6/2016

I signed up for the acupuncture treatment and I was super satisfied with the results. I was expecting it to be something that would hurt because of the use of needles however, this is not the case I actually enjoy getting treatments. Cynthia is amazing at what she does and she always makes me feel comfortable and relaxed! I highly recommend To the Point Healthcare it has been a big part of my recovery. Kayla R 1/2017

Cynthia’s calming nature put me at ease from the time she began the initial examination through the entire treatment. Explanations were clear and questions were answered expertly. I enjoyed the treatment room as it offered soft music and décor that was relaxing. The sensation of needle insertion was minimal and the session was ended by a wonderful shoulder massage and use of the cupping technique. I was given instructions to be kind to myself, which I followed exactly as I... Read more »

8 things to do before a Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture isn’t really into hard-and-fast rules. What works for one person may not necessarily work for another. This is the beauty of acupuncture—it meets us wherever we’re at.
However, there are some general rules of thumb when it comes to preparing for an acupuncture appointment. All are tweakable based on your constitution and preferences, but in my experience, these guidelines
What to do After a Acupuncture treatment,
When people ask me what they should and should not do after acupuncture, I usually tell them, “Be good to yourself.”
Vague advice, but it’s what most recommendations for taking care of yourself after acupuncture come down to. Acupuncture gets things moving, potentially causing your body to react in ways that it’s not used to. You want to honor that
How safe is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is extremely safe. It is an all-natural, drug-free therapy, yielding no side effects just feelings of relaxation and well-being. There is little danger of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile, used once, and then discarded.
How should I prepare?
Write down and bring any questions you have. We are here to help you. Wear loose, comfortable clothing for easy access to acupuncture points. Do not eat large meals just before or after
your visit. Refrain from overexertion, working out, drugs or alcohol for up to six hours after the visit. Avoid stressful situations. Make time to relax, and Continue reading
Will my insurance cover acupuncture?
Insurance coverage varies from state to state. Contact your insurance provider to learn what kind of care is covered. Here are a few questions to ask:
Will my plan cover acupuncture? How many visits per calendar year? Do I need a referral? Do I have a co-pay? Do I have a deductible? If yes, has it been met?
How much does it cost?
Rates vary and depend upon what procedures are performed. It is best to consult with your acupuncturist about costs.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will vary from person to person.A typical course of treatments is 3 to 12 visits, but the exact duration depends on your condition, overall health, and how well you respond to acupuncture. Some people experience immediate relief; others may take 4-6 visits. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute ones. Plan on a minimum of
Is acupuncture safe for children?
Yes. In some instances children actually respond more quickly than adults. If your child has an aversion to needles, your acupuncturist may massage the acupuncture points. This is called acupressure or tuina.
Why did my acupuncturist recommend herbs?
Herbs can be a powerful adjunct to acupuncture care. They are used to strengthen, build and support the body or to clear it of excess problems like a cold, fever or acute pain. Your practitioner may suggest starting with herbs and then adding acupuncture to your treatment in the future. This is suggested to build up your internal strength so
Why do they want to look at my tongue?
The tongue is a map of the body. It reflects the general health of the organs and meridians. Your acupuncturist will look at the color, shape, cracks and coating on your tongue.
