What is acupuncture? Acupuncture is a healing art based on Traditional Chinese Medicine that stimulates the flow of Qi energy through the various meridians of the body to relieve pain and improve overall health. Using tiny needles, the acupuncturist targets key acupuncture points to facilitate the body’s own healing response. At our clinic, we offer acupuncture treatment as an all-natural alternative to drugs and surgery. We will create a customized treatment plan based on your history and symptoms, so you can finally get the pain relief you deserve.
What to Expect from Acupuncture?
When you have acupuncture treatment, you can expect pain relief from a variety of different issues, as well as an improvement in your general health. For some, there might be mild discomfort involved, but it does not hurt. Sometimes, people say they feel a little prick like a mosquito bite when the needle is first inserted. Once they have been placed, the needles should not cause discomfort. Many patients describe the insertion of needles into the skin as a feeling of mild target pressure. Sterile, disposable, single-use needles are used, and very few complications have been reported. This treatment is a safe procedure when undertaken by a trained acupuncturist.
By stimulating nerves and blood vessels, acupuncture is an effective treatment for many functional issues, pain syndromes, and diseases.
Your body’s own healing power is accelerated by:
- Increasing endorphin release to decrease pain
- Reducing muscle spasm by improving blood flow
- Regulating the nervous system to promote balance throughout your body
- Reducing inflammation naturally
- Strengthening the immune system
- Improving respiratory health
