Helping You Feel Better

Natural Solutions Acupuncture and Botanicals was established in 2016 in Waterloo, NY, with the clear mission of helping you progress towards your optimum state of health and wellness.

We look at afflictions through the millenary wisdom of Acupuncture, a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, in order to prevent and treat disease, balance mood, and relieve pain, always working in coordination with proven and complimentary approaches such as botanicals, massage therapy and floral essences.

Acupuncture is known to be a pain-freesafe and effective  way to promote the body’s own self-healing abilities. At the heart of every therapy there is the uniqueness of a patient and of their condition, and we make a point of putting you at the center of everything we do, and give you a profoundly relaxing and regenerating experience.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

First-time patients tend to express concerns regarding needles and pain. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that can hardly be felt when inserted. We make sure that our environment is stress free so you can have a fully relaxing experience, both physically and emotionally.

Benefits of acupuncture are cumulative: acute conditions may require a series of treatments, and relief usually starts to be felt after just the first few. Chronic conditions may require more sessions to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventive treatments and treatments for general well-being are scheduled to integrate and respect your unique pacing.

On your first acupuncture appointment, an screening form will be given to you to complete, with questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history.

After reviewing your intake form,  your pulse and tongue will be examined. Acupuncture points will be determined based on your condition –  you can expect approximately 20 needles. Once the needles are inserted, you will lie comfortably for around 30 minutes with the needles in place, and falling asleep is okay.

Acupuncture works by activating the body’s own healing process. The World Health Organization (WHO) has documented many symptoms, diseases, and conditions that have been shown in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture – please feel free to call and discuss your specific health condition and requirements.
