Stepping into the center is in itself a calming experience. The atmosphere is a respite form the bustle of Braddock Ave. I leave with a peaceful outlook and a healthier body.

Pittsburgh Classical Chinese Acupuncture
Classical Chinese Acupuncture at the Pittsburgh Center for Complementary Health and Healing!
The Pittsburgh Center for Complementary Health and Healing is now offering you Classical Chinese Acupuncture! The classical chinese acupuncture is under the direction of licensed acupuncturist Andrew Macfarlane, MS, L.Ac. With so many modalities of healthcare available today, it can be confusing and at times overwhelming to choose an appropriate holistic health therapy when faced with illness or when simply trying to nourish and support one’s health and vitality. The Pittsburgh Center for Complementary Health and Healing is very pleased to offer a truly unique and valuable addition to the current healthcare options here in Pittsburgh. Classical Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that has stood the test of time and continues to be as relevant and effective in our modern society as it was in antiquity.
The initial visit will last up to 90 minutes and will consist of a thorough medical history intake, in which you will be asked questions about your health, lifestyle issues, and anything else that may be pertinent to arriving at an accurate diagnosis. Observation of the tongue and palpation of wrist pulses will provide additional information necessary for diagnosis. The acupuncturist will organize these findings according to the theories of Chinese medicine to determine what underlying imbalances are causing your symptoms. An individualized treatment plan will be devised and an acupuncture treatment performed to help correct the imbalance.
Supplemental Chinese Medical therapies such as cupping, gua-sha, moxabustion (heat therapy), and tui-na massage may also be utilized. Chinese Dietary and other lifestyle recommendations may be given and are often an important component of the healing process.
During the acupuncture session hair thin needles will be inserted into specific acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncture aids the body and mind in returning to a state of energetic balance. Once balance is re-instated, the body’s natural healing mechanisms start to function optimally, which naturally brings about a state of health and wellbeing.
;I was not sure how acupuncture could be relevant in my life but after going to Andrew MacFarlane I found out how wonderful it is. He is truly a professional and very impressive with his skills. I started out with sleep problems that moved into digestive issues and then in August I had a bad fall. He helped to hasten the healing process and the pain that accompanied it by half the normal time. I not only find acupuncture so relevant for me but extremely important for keeping me healthy. I will continue making it a part of my life. Fabulous work, Andrew!" T.M.
