What is Acupuncture?
Will it hurt?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical art that uses the insertion of flexible, delicate needles (usually thinner than a human hair) at specific points along the surface of the body in order to influence the flow of energy through the body along crucial internal pathways (meridians).
When the flow of energy throughout the body is smooth and unimpeded, the body functions optimally.
Sometimes a “twinge” may be felt with the insertion of a needle, but most people who “hate needles” will feel comfortable during a treatment. Many patients find the treatment so relaxing that they fall asleep in the treatment room.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are a whole-body approach to health. The root cause of a problem is treated, as well as symptoms.

Promotion of health and well-being
Prevention of illness
Treatment of various disease conditions

Through the use of acupuncture needles (and the use of herbal medicines, if indicated) the body is influenced to return to its normal state of balance and good health. Each patient receives a highly individualized and flexible treatment.

How can Traditional Chinese Medicine help?


No. This system of medicine is based on more than twenty-three centuries of empirical evidence (clinical experience). One quarter of the world’s population uses it as their primary health care system. The United States’ government institution, the National Institute of Health (NIH) states, “the data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western therapies.”

Do I have to believe in acupuncture for it to work?

Through centuries of clinical observation, the medicinal properties of thousands of herbs were discovered. Herbs can be prepared as decoctions (teas), powders or tablets. Determining which herbs will be beneficial to a patient is based on the patient’s constitution and his or her particular symptoms. While very effective, people taking Chinese Herbal Medicine rarely experience negative side effects.

Good health is more than the absence of disease. It is the presence of a sense of well-being and calm that results from a balanced complement of good nutrition, work, rest, play and relationships.

I had a major accident, then surgery which led to my body not having “normal” movement. By the time I visited Phyllis, I had truly given up hope as the pain I suffered with daily was just getting too much to bear. I'm only forty years old with a normally great outlook on life, but between constant pain and the inability to complete simple daily tasks due to pain, I was at the bottom of a very black hole. I was skeptical to say the least, but after just one visit I had more relief than I had found with chiropractic, massage and pain pills for months. Phyllis is very quiet, and what I have learned after more visits, is that she is listening and watching every single detail. She is a healer in every sense of the word, and I cannot recommend her enough. You DON'T have to live with pain.

I would recommend Phyllis Hamar for acupuncture for the simple reason she makes me feel so much more relaxed and peaceful after a treatment. When I had a concussion, her treatment made my symptoms so much better. Thanks Phyllis, you are the best!

I have a very complicated medical history and I can honestly say I thought that feelings of tension and pain were going to be my new normal. Phyllis has helped me regain my inner strength by putting my body closer towards homeostasis than I have been in years. My emotional health is getting better as I take time to relax and reflect during my acupuncture and moxibustion treatments. Phyllis is supporting my lifestyle changes with herbs and has even persuaded me (a lover of all things sugar) to modify my diet. She not only treats my physical aliments but is someone who understands and listens. That is an incredible feeling!

 I was nervous about getting acupuncture because I am not a needle person. Phyllis made me feel comfortable and it really doesn't hurt. I was surprised at how much a tiny needle could help with my sinus pressure and allergies. She is very knowledgeable and insightful.

I have been going to Phyllis Hamar for acupuncture once a month. I have osteoarthritis, which at the time I started acupuncture, was causing severe pain in my shoulders and knees both day and night. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, and I still have morning stiffness in my joints, the pain has been completely gone for about a year now. I can walk, go up and down stairs, and sleep without the pain that was preventing so many activities. Thank you, Phyllis!


This was my first time receiving acupuncture, and I was honestly a little nervous going in. Phyllis did an incredible job with calming my nerves, and even had a certain acupuncture point that she called the "Don't worry, be happy" needle. It served to calm me down right away. After a couple visits, there was noticeable difference in the way my knees felt, and I have been utilizing her vast knowledge and expertise in Chinese herbs and medicines ever since. I highly recommend her services!
