Acupuncture

Dr. Koloski uses several different acupuncture techniques to treat a wide diversity of symptoms such as neck, back, head and sciatic pain; digestive disorders including diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel, and reflux; symptoms of colds, sinus infections and allergies; menstrual cycle irregularities and menopausal symptoms; and mental/emotional disturbances causing depression, anxiety, or insomnia. She greatly enjoys the challenge of difficult cases and loves trying to approach them from a variety of perspectives. Acupuncture is very helpful in reducing side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Dr. Koloski provides acupuncture and nutritional consultation services for Hope Lives! breast cancer foundation clients.

All patients are treated individually in private rooms with heated tables. Most treatment sessions last 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the individual presentation, and always include a brief patient history.

Dr. Koloski's techniques include the TCM style of acupuncture, Dr. Tan's balance method of acupuncture, and microcurrent. She chooses either the use of a hand-held microcurrent device on acupuncture points called Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) or a versatile unit called the Acutron which allows delivery of microcurrent and milli-amperage through probes or pads.

The specific technique she chooses depends upon the individual presentation of each person. In addition, she utilizes several other traditional therapies such as Qi Gong, moxibustion, ear seeds, and cupping.

Acupuncture needles are solid, like a hair, rather than hollow like a blood drawing needle. Acupuncture needles push tissue aside and do not punch out a core of tissue like a blood-drawing needle. After removal of an acupuncture needle, it is usually very difficult to see where the needle was placed during the treatment.
