Acupuncture removes blocks and opens the body to the opportunity to do what it was designed to do: Heal Itself!
We are newly offering individual acupuncture sessions as well if you prefer or require an acupuncture treatment that takes place in a private setting.
Acupuncture is a comprehensive healing system that dates back over 4,000 years. Acupuncture works with the natural energy of your body. Periodically, we develop blockages and imbalances in the body caused by physical or emotional trauma. If the physical or emotional traumas are not dealt with, they can manifest into disease. Once the acupuncturist determines the root of the problem, whether physical or emotional, the treatment will be customized to balance that patient’s health. Acupuncture treatment encourages the body to restore its own balance on all levels.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a medicine that addresses the entire body. It is highly effective at addressing not only acute illness or injury, but chronic conditions and symptoms that are a result of multiple systems being imbalanced or ill. While it is currently renowned for treating pain and recovery from injury, it is also used to treat or help with the following. The following is a partial list of symptoms, diseases and conditions that are recognized by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and World Health Organization (WHO) to be treated effectively by acupuncture and Chinese herbs:
Acupuncture is generally painless. The needles are called “filiform” meaning “hairlike.” You may feel a slight sensation upon insertion of the needles and throughout the treatment you may have different sensations like dullness, achiness, heaviness or warmth. Most patients fall asleep during their treatments, so clearly none of the sensations are uncomfortable.
This depends on the condition that you are coming in for and the rate in which your body responds to the treatments. It also may depend on how long you’ve had the condition. Acute conditions will generally respond faster, while chronic conditions may take several weeks or longer to respond. In general, we recommend that any new patient expect to come in once a week for at least a month or two. It is not uncommon to begin seeing changes in your overall health within your first couple of treatments. We work with each patient individually to find a treatment plan that works for him or her. We also work together with other healthcare providers to co-manage the patient’s overall health.
I discovered Maplebrook Acupuncture after I sprained my ankle. The cost was so reasonable, compared to other places I called. The results were fantastic. DeWayne is an amazing healer, very knowledgeable! He has helped me in so many ways. I always leave there, feeling very calm and relaxed. The staff is wonderful and caring. I highly recommend Maplebrook!
Acupuncture removes blocks and opens the body to the opportunity to do what it was designed to do: Heal Itself! When you're ready to heal, you won't find a more skillful or intuitive acupuncturist anywhere! DeWayne is amazing and the clinic is a true gift to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I'm so glad I found my way to Maplebrook because weekly acupuncture helps me stay healthy (with no medications).
I went to Dewayne after I had been to several doctors and a physical therapist for pain in my body. I didn’t want to start on pain medications. Dewayne has given a lot of relief. He listens to you and tries different things to find the path to good health. He is very knowledgeable about a lot of health issues. The whole staff is very helpful.
Dr. Dewayne is fantastic, educational, patient, understanding, he’s the best! Thank you, doctor, for giving patients the option to get treatment without drugs. You are a fantastic man.
The help I have received from DeWayne's acupuncture treatments has been life-changing. I've received acupuncture by two other providers in different cities. DeWayne's ability is far superior to my previous experiences. I've received more pain relief, in a shorter time frame, with DeWayne's gift of healing. DeWayne and his wife Ildi have created a very warm and welcoming atmosphere for the patients. As a result, they have developed a true sense of community at Maplebrook.
