What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the specific points, called acupuncture points, on body surface. Everybody has 361 of them and they are used in Oriental Medicine over thousands of years. Most of them are located along the body meridians (or channels) that are thought to conduct and regulate the Qi (vital energy) flow in the whole body starting from organs.
What are the differences between KOSA and TCM?
KOSA and TCM are acronyms of Korean Orthodox Saahm Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Both of them are based on the theory of Yin & Yang and Five Elements. As our DNA resembles our body, our body resembles the universe. Thousands of years ago, it is discovered that the universe consists of Yin & Yang and Five Elements. So does our body. Our twelve organs have various number of acupuncture points but each one of them has five element acupuncture points.
KOSA is the only acupuncture fully understands how to utilize them and thus, KOSA has very high success rate on any conditions and is most powerful.
Do I need to pay a fee for consultation?
Patient is welcome to visit the clinic and to inquire information about acupuncture. If you did not receive the treatment, you don't have to pay. Consultation is free.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Modern acupuncture is largely a painless procedure. It uses hair-thin needles. The needles penetrate top layer of skin quickly. In most cases, patients feel no more than prickle-like feeling. However, in a few cases, patient may feel some pain when needles accidentally reach the nerve or blood vessel. When it happened, the needle would be taken off or replaced. In general, acupuncture treatment is a very comfortable method.
How long is each acupuncture session?
The initial visit usually takes almost two hours and it consists of:
- Complete forms, if necessary
- Diagnose conditions including history
- Discover the root problems
- Establish the treatment plan and apply needles
- Master Kim provides the patient with the information what he or she needs to know to expedite the healing process and maintain healthy conditions.
A typical acupuncture treatment for the continued visits take about 45 minutes. It includes Q&A for the progress, placing and taking out the needles to acupuncture points and allowing needles remained at the points. Depending on the severity and patient's need, it can take as many as hours needed and in this case, the fee will be charged per hour.
How many and how often is acupuncture treatment required?
Numbers of required treatment depend on the patient's condition. While other acupuncturists just to try to scratch the tip of the iceberg, KOSA is the only acupuncture in the world treats the root problems of organs so that healthier organs can treat the conditions.
Does acupuncture have side effects?
Adverse effect of acupuncture is very rare as acupuncture is a moderate approach to adjust body's physiological condition and procedure is very mild compared to other medical procedures. Common side effects maybe things such as occasional pain when needles touch the nerve or occasional bleeding (a drop of blood) when needles touch the small blood vessel in some occasions. The bleeding can easily and quickly be stopped by pressing the point for a few seconds.
KOSA's treatment very often improves even additional conditions to those the patient didn't report to Master Kim.
Who should be careful when deciding to receive acupuncture?
KOSA does not treat women in pregnancy and it is the patient's responsibility to report the pregnancy to KOSA.
Can I receive other therapy while I am getting acupuncture?
Yes. In fact, acupuncture in most of cases can work together with other therapies. It is common for patients to receive acupuncture while receiving physical therapy in the same time. Medication usually does not affect acupuncture. However, patients should inform the doctor the other treatments he or she is receiving so that the doctor can incorporate this consideration into treatment design.
