About Lynne Morgan, RN, Licensed Acupuncturist
Lynne is grateful to be able to share the benefit of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with you. Her passion for this medicine was born when she began to use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to help her through the strenuous 12 hour night shifts, while working as a nurse. Coming from a Western Medicine Background, she didn't understand it initially, but knew that it was valuable in getting her through this time period in her life.
Her background includes training not only in acupuncture, but in a wide array of Chinese medicine modalities. She is licensed by the state of North Carolina, and recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She has 33 years of nursing experience, and 16 years of experience working as an Acupuncturist. She has had the pleasure of treating the Veterans for 7 years at the Veterans Health Administration, working with those experiencing PTSD, and traumatic brain injuries and other serious health issues. Additionally, she worked for the Huntsman Cancer Institute of University of Utah, assisting patients and their caregivers going through cancer treatments. When Lynne is not working, she enjoy hikes in the mountains, walks on the beach, and spending time with her pets, her family and her friends.
Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to Lynne. She is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. She is looking forward to helping you to achieve your health and wellness goals.

What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?
Many first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won't. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when I insert them. When I gently stimulate the needles they may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls de qi. Patients often describe de qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an "electrical" sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.
Acupuncture treatment creates deep relaxation
in both mind and body.
Your First Visit
When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment, you will complete a comprehensive intake form about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.
After reviewing your intake form, we will discuss your condition, and Lynne will examine your pulse and tongue, which are two of the basic diagnostic methods of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points she chooses will depend on your condition, but you can expect approximately 20 needles. Once the needles are inserted, she will leave you to lie comfortably for 15- 35 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more than one treatment is necessary. For acute conditions you can expect to have 4 to 15 treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief after just the first few. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
