Acupuncture Services We Offer
Most people know very little about how acupuncture works, or that there are several different styles and systems of acupuncture out there. As it turns out, there are many methods of acupuncture in the world today. A medical art as old and as widely-used as acupuncture would naturally branch out into many schools and strategies over time. Here at our Scottsdale clinic, we actually take advantage of several different methods, but each has one goal in mind – to establish balance and health by restoring the flow of Qi.
Always make this your first appointment for acupuncture.
This session includes a 60-minute consultation with your acupuncturist, followed by a 30-minute acupuncture treatment. Prepare to be shocked and brought to tears – not by the needles, of course, but because you will finally get to talk to a medical professional who really takes the time to listen to you. Your acupuncturist will then guide you through a holistic solution to your health problems in way that actually makes sense. Please allow 2-hours total for your visit to allow for the insertion and removal of needles before and after treatment, as well as time for you to relish in the amazement at how much better you feel afterwards.
Your Follow-up Acupuncture session will include 20-minutes of consultation with your acupuncturist and a 30-minute acupuncture treatment. Please allow 1-hour total to allow for the insertion and removal of needles before and after treatment. Side effects of acupuncture may include being unable to stop smiling or telling everyone you know about how incredible your session was for several days. Should you experience these or other similar symptoms, please contact your physician immediately… and give them the card of your acupuncturist at Healing House in Scottsdale.
Please note: This requires a First-time Consultation + Acupuncture session before scheduling.

Zhang Fu Body Acupuncture
Zhang Fu Body Acupuncture is the most frequently used and most heavily researched form of acupuncture in the world today. This system utilizes hundreds of acupuncture points on the body – from the top of the head to the bottom of the foot, and everywhere in between. But don’t worry – we don’t needle all of them at once! The typical acupuncturist employing Zhang Fu Body Acupuncture will needle around 10 to 30 acupuncture points in a session. These points generally fall along lines of energy often referred to as “meridians.” There are 14 major meridians that travel along the surface and at times through the interior of the body. Each meridian is associated with a major organ of the body, such as the stomach, heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs. In Zhang Fu Body Acupuncture, the acupuncturist uses specific points to stimulate a healing response within the organs by unblocking and improving the flow of Qi through the meridians. Acupuncture points are also used to reduce and eliminate negative factors in the body that restrict and damage the flow of Qi, such as Coldness, Dampness and Phlegm, Dryness, Heat and Inflammation, and Wind.
Auricular Acupuncture refers to the use of needles to stimulate the acupuncture points in the ears. The ears are a linked powerfully to our nervous system; they form a kind of map of the body that a skilled acupuncturist can use to diagnose and stimulate healing signals to the brain. The needles go in quickly, usually without a guide tube, and they do not rely on the meridian system as found in Zhang Fu acupuncture. Auricular acupuncture is very well known for its effectiveness in treating addiction and pain in the body.
At Healing House, we utilize a scalp acupuncture technique developed by the world famous acupuncturist, Dr. Ming Qing Zhu. In this system, we insert very fine needles into the scalp in zones that relate to various parts of the body. It is a painless technique when done correctly. This method of acupuncture is quite versatile, allowing us to treat a patient in a comfortably seated position, fully clothed, and at any age of life, for virtually any condition. However, this technique is most especially known for it’s marked effectiveness in treating various neurological disorders. Many people have seen videos of near miraculous results achieved using this modality, and they expect the same results when they arrive at our clinic. Well, we try not to disappoint! The reality is, we can often get truly remarkable results using all of the systems of acupuncture we offer at Healing House, but Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture is perhaps the most reliable in its effectiveness.
Five Element Acupuncture
Five Element acupuncture involves understanding how the organs, meridians, and points of the body talk to each other according to their association with one of the five elements. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the archetypal elements are as follows – water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. A skillful acupuncturist can understand how the elements generate and control each other, and they know how to use the acupuncture points to tonify or sedate the elemental forces in the body to create harmony and resolve illness. This subtle techniques requires very few needles, (typically just four), and can be accomplished in a comfortable seated position. Our acupuncturist in our Scottsdale clinic, Muki Ramsey, L.Ac., Dipl. O.M., is particularly fond of this powerful methodology, having written his Master’s thesis on the psychological and spiritual implications of five element theory. Be careful – if you get him started talking about it, you might get quite the earful!
