What to expect

Treatment Approach at Scottsdale Family Acupuncture

At Scottsdale Family Acupuncture, we believe in a comprehensive approach to healthcare that involves thorough testing and personalized treatment plans. Our process typically involves the following phases.


Acupuncture Treatments

During your acupuncture intake, we employ a comprehensive approach to understand your unique health needs. Our process begins with a Qest4 scan, which helps us identify any underlying imbalances that may require further investigation. We then assess your tongue and pulse according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles, providing valuable insights into your overall health status. Additionally, we perform palpation to detect areas of tension or blockage within the body. By combining these assessment methods, we can create a personalized treatment plan. 

Acute Phase: This phase typically lasts for a few weeks to a couple of months, during which you may require more frequent acupuncture treatments to address acute symptoms and promote rapid healing.

Stabilization Phase: The stabilization phase usually follows the acute phase and can last anywhere from a few months to several months. During this phase, your symptoms begin to stabilize, and your acupuncture treatments and herbal remedies may start to reduce in frequency as your condition improves.

Maintenance Phase: Once your condition has stabilized, you may transition to the maintenance phase, which typically involves monthly acupuncture sessions for ongoing support and preventive care. This phase can continue indefinitely to help you maintain optimal health and well-being.

Functional Treatments

Functional treatments offer a holistic approach to healthcare by delving deeper into the root causes of health issues. Through comprehensive testing and analysis, we aim to identify underlying imbalances that may contribute to your symptoms. Our approach to functional treatments extends beyond traditional methods, incorporating a range of modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, supplements, exercise, and other healing techniques tailored to your individual needs. Whether conducted in-office or through telehealth, our goal is to provide you with personalized and effective solutions that promote long-term wellness and vitality. By addressing the underlying factors contributing to your health concerns, we empower you to achieve optimal health and well-being.


Testing Procedures:

Throughout your treatment journey, we may utilize a variety of diagnostic tests to gather insights into your unique health profile. These tests may include:

Genetics analysis
Functional blood work
Gut health assessments
Hormonal evaluations
Autoimmune markers
Toxin burden analysis
Bioresonance testing

These tests help us to better understand your body's individual needs and tailor our treatment approach accordingly.

Phase 2: Health Transition (6-8 weeks)
In this phase, we continue to address various aspects of your health to support your transition towards optimal wellness.
