RENO, Nev. (Aug. 19, 2015) – Renown Medical Acupuncture is expanding – adding three new doctors and moving to a larger office – to better serve our community.
Susan Park, M.D., Samanda Durand, D.O., and Justin Chang, D.O., joined doctors Howard Chen and Mary Maul. All five doctors are trained and licensed in western medicine and also received extensive training in eastern medicine.
The new office is located at 6580 S. McCarran Blvd. in Reno, 89509. It's just a few doors down from the old location and is still inside the Quail Corners Complex on South McCarran Boulevard between Talbot and Kietzke Lanes.
Medical Acupuncture is performed by a physician who is trained and licensed in conventional Western medicine and has extensive training in acupuncture and Eastern medicine philosophies.
This approach allows the doctor to use a combination of both approaches to treat an illness, injury or chronic condition.
Medical Acupuncture involves positioning very thin needles on various points on the body depending on the symptoms or pain of the patient. Accurate placement of the needles draws energy to the desired areas and allows for positive energy flow. Medical Acupuncture can be effective for treating both injuries and chronic conditions.
We treat the following illnesses, injuries or chronic conditions:
Some insurances cover Medical Acupuncture. Both private treatments and group acupuncture are available. Group acupuncture is $40 per session. Patients should wear loose fitting clothing and can expect to sit for 30-45 minutes.
It is common with the first one or two treatments to have a sensation of deep relaxation or even mild disorientation immediately following the treatment. These pass within a short time and do not require anything more than a bit of rest to overcome.
Medical Acupuncture needles are very thin and are made from stainless steel. Insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. The risk of bruising and skin irritation is less than when using a hollow needle, such as those for drawing blood.
Private treatments are recommended for those with complex problems, conditions with emotional aspects or conditions of a private nature.
