Acupuncture is the time tested therapy that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It’s a part of Chinese medicine.The philosophy behind Acupuncture is that energy lines or meridians circulate around the body. These meridians contain our energy flow or “Qi” “气”. It is when this Qi is impaired through the body that imbalance and illness occurs.With the insertion of fine needles at various points on the meridian, the energy can be moved or redirected to where it is needed most. In this way the body’s balance can be restored and the illness resolved.
1. An acupuncture session in at On The Go Osteo and Alternative Care begins with an assessment where the practitioner will ask learn about the health history of a client. This can take between 10-20 minutes. Clients should be prepared to speak about symptoms, diet and lifestyle. The Acupuncturist will evaluate the clients appearance, and will observe the clients tongue and pulse. This protocol enables the acupuncturist to identify the disharmony or imbalance, and then to select an appropriate treatment strategy.
2. When receiving acupuncture, the patient generally lies on their back, front or side, depending on which part of the body is being treated. In some cases, it may be necessary to sit in a chair. Depended on the diagnosis, acupuncturist selects the appropriate acupuncture points where the needles will be inserted.
3. In the clinic we only use sterilized, disposable acupuncture needles for the treatment.The needles come in varying lengths and most are not much thicker than a hair. The choice of needle size is based on clinical judgement, and usually governed by the point being treated and the response the practitioner is seeking.

I learned a great
“I was told by my cousin to go see an osteo. A day after searching on google, I got to see her after some scheduling adjustments. Speaking of her, from first impression, she’s great. You can sense the passion she has for her field and helping her patients. I learned a great deal from my visit. Looking forward to my next visit to see how where I’m at physically and to get more advice and knowledge from her.”
” I’ve had 3 sessions with Cheryl. She was really professional and super nice. She has demonstrated professionalism on several occasions with follow-ups.
Thank you again for this wonderful service. It’s a nice experience.”
