How we can help


How Does Acupuncture Work

Acupuncture in Bend Oregon is offered at Deschutes Acupuncture using TCM.  Following the Chinese Medicine diagnosis, acupuncture needles are inserted into the body at specific points along acupuncture “meridians,” or pathways, which stimulates the body’s healing. 

Electromagnetic research has confirmed their locations. 

According to ancient theory, acupuncture allows energy to flow to areas where it is deficient, and away from areas where it is in excess. In this way, acupuncture regulates and restores a harmonious energetic balance in the body.

What to Expect at your Treatment

Our clinic is designed to be a relaxing experience as well as healing.  The tranquil environment with heated beds, soft music, and peaceful fountains, will help to set your mind at ease.  When you arrive you’ll have time to sip on some Chinese herbal tea while your doctor talks with you. 

Your acupuncture treatments may include points on your hands, arms, legs and feet, and/ or head and neck.  

Since acupuncture channels flow across the entire body it is possible to treat neck problems, for example, with points on the hands and feet. You will not need to undress, but please wear loose clothing that can be comfortably rolled up if necessary.
