Welcome to Healing House, where we offer a unique blend of integrative, holistic therapies to help you resolve your ailments and find your way to good health. One of the core therapies we offer is holistic acupuncture. Here at our Scottsdale clinic, we find that our patients turn to this ancient medicine more than any other method to resolve their health problems. And for good reason — the results we get with acupuncture can be truly extraordinary.
Holistic Acupuncture Sessions We Offer
Patients who have never had an holistic acupuncture at Healing House before should schedule the First-Time Consultation + Acupuncture session. If you’ve had acupuncture here before, book a Follow-Up Acupuncture session.
First-Time Consultation + Acupuncture
Your acupuncturist will dig deep into your health questionnaire. To an acupuncturist, there is no such thing as just treating your symptoms. They will always seek out the root cause of your health issues. They’ll explain the way Chinese medicine works, and how it can work for you. They’ll formulate your plan for healing and recovery, and they will walk you through your plan in great detail, creating a report that will be emailed to while you’re sitting in front of them.
And then you’ll get your first holistic acupuncture treatment. You’ll be in your own private room, and you’ll be allowed to undress entirely to your comfort level. Most of the time, loose fitting shorts or yoga pants and a t-shirt are just fine.
Your acupuncturist will first explain how acupuncture works, what you can expect, and make sure that you understand that you are in complete control of the process.
At Healing House, all of our needles are surgical-grade stainless steel, and they are disposed of as medical waste after a single use. Your safety and comfort are our number one priority. As the needles go in, you may feel an odd tapping sensation. After they are inserted, your acupuncturist will gently wake your needles up through manual manipulation, which will cause you to feel a slight ache, tenderness, or a zinging sensation. Nothing too strong – this is not a “more pain, more gain” situation.
Once the needles have been activated, you’ll find that they all calm down within a minute or two, and you’ll disappear into a deep level of relaxation. You’ll lie with the needles in place for 30-minutes. Our medical tables are extremely comfortable and heated, and the rooms are quiet except for the relaxing music playing softly in the background. You will have a buzzer in hand to make sure you can reach your acupuncturist at all times. Chances are, you’ll slip into one of the most relaxing naps of your life. And when you wake up, you’ll feel a whole lot better.
Dress in loose fitting clothing. You will always be dressed or covered according to your comfort level. Sessions take place on a comfortable, heated massage table. Infra-red heat lamps will be used strategically to warm the body and help increase healing.

If you’re not feeling better, or if you’re feeling worse, your acupuncturist is going to problem solve with you until they figure out why. Usually, there’s an explanation, and there are adjustments that can be made to kick-start your progress.
Sometimes, however, it means we need to refer you to another practitioner. It’s often the case that the combination of acupuncture, meditation coaching, massage, and nutritional coaching can give just the right boost to your health.
And if we can’t solve the problem at Healing House, we will gladly give you the card of one of our trusted referral partners. What your acupuncturist at Healing House will not do, however, is continue to treat you week after week, month after month, without giving you the progress you were looking for. Our policy is this – if we aren’t getting the results you need, we will fire ourselves long before you do.
Thankfully, that very rarely happens! Acupuncture is incredibly effective for an enormous range of health issues, and our results are usually nothing short of amazing. And as you keep coming back for treatment, you’ll probably notice that you feel considerably better with each session. You’ll start to look forward to that feeling of serenity and peace that washes over you once the needles are in. It’s the best nap in the world! And each time you get treatment, you’ll feel more and more comfortable, more used to the needles, and more happy with your results.
That’s the typical experience at Healing House. That’s what we strive for at each follow-up acupuncture session.
Your Follow-up Acupuncture session will include 20-minutes of consultation with your acupuncturist and a 30-minute acupuncture treatment. Please allow 60-minutes total for your session. This allows for time necessary for the insertion and removal of needles before and after treatment.
Side effects of acupuncture may include being unable to stop smiling or telling everyone you know about how incredible your session was for several days. Should you experience these or other similar symptoms, please contact your physician immediately… and give them the card of your acupuncturist at Healing House in Scottsdale.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does acupuncture hurt?
At Zen Medicinals, we often have patients who suffer from a mild needle phobia. Muki just tells them to relax and close their eyes. After he has already put in several needles, they often tell him: “Okay, you can start now.” So it really is a very mild sensation, and it often goes completely unnoticed.
After the needle is in the body, your acupuncturist might stimulate it a little. This is called “Gathering the Qi,” and it is how your acupuncturists activates the healing response in the body and gets the Qi moving in the right way. This stimulation can result in a strange, “zinging” sensation. It feels different from point to point and person to person. Some people feel a tingle, others feel a strong pulse of movement. Some people feel a heaviness or pressure, and others feel nothing at all.
At Zen Medicinals, if you are just too frightened of the needles to give them a try, you can always request an herbal and nutritional consultation instead.
How many treatments will I need?
But we will do our best to give you an idea of how long we think it will take to get you better as soon as we can get a sense for it. Once Muki has had a chance to talk with you and treat you a few times, he can generally see how your body is responding, and he’ll give you his best guess. But it’s only a guess! Don’t hold him to it.
One thing we can say for certain is that we will work as hard as we can to get you better as quickly as possible. As much as we love our patients, we don’t want them coming back! We have the philosophy that if we get you better as quickly as possible, you will go out and refer us business a lot more enthusiastically than if we drag your treatments on and on with little or no results. That’s not only a terrible way to do business, it’s a terrible way to treat your patients. It’s the exact opposite of how real medicine should work, and we won’t do it – ever.
Does acupuncture really work?
In fact, Muki himself is a living testament to the effectiveness of acupuncture. Muki used to suffer with pains in his legs, shoulders, and arms every single day. That pain (along with all of his other ailments) has now been completely resolved, thanks to this wonderful medicine. You can read more about Muki’s own path to healing on his Bio page. Muki’s patients also get wonderful results— please visit the Testimonials page to read what they have to say about how acupuncture has changed their lives.
But you don’t have to take their word for it, or Muki’s— there is plenty of very compelling research being done on the effectiveness of acupuncture at famous health, government, and educational institutions all over the world.
