ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a healthcare approach that focuses on balancing energy patterns in the meridians of the body.  These pathways of energy have been mapped out over centuries of applications.  By carefully inserting extremely fine, individually sterilized needles into various points, the blockages in the normal flow of energies are removed.

Can Acupuncture Help Me with Pain Relief?

Have you been suffering from chronic pain, migraines, nausea, anxiety, post-operative pain or other chronic conditions?

If so, acupuncture and acupressure may be your source of treatment for pain relief and pain management.

Millions of people across the U.S. have been treated with this traditional Chinese therapy. And acupuncture treatment has been growing in popularity over the past 20 years.

Acupuncture therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment for some conditions. It is also increasingly used in conjunction with alternative medicines and conventional western medical treatment, such as chiropractic care. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins that relieve pain. It also strengthens the immune system, improves circulation, decreases muscle tightness, and increases joint flexibility.

You may feel relaxed or re-energized both during and after your acupuncture therapy. Here are some of the conditions that acupuncture successfully treats:


How Does Acupuncture Work?

Simply put, acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through the skin, to various depths and at strategic points on the body. Acupuncture provides many medical benefits—from pain relief and pain reduction to nausea, migraine, and hot flash relief.

Sometimes our pain specialist will also use acupressure, which applies gentle pressure with the thumbs or fingertips to the same areas of the body stimulated during acupuncture therapy. Together, acupuncture and acupressure can relieve the discomfort and pain of many health conditions.


Tell me more…

Traditional Chinese medicine also describes acupuncture as a technique to balance the energy or life force known as qi or chi (CHEE). This energy is believed to flow through 12 pathways, or meridians, in our bodies. These meridians run vertically along the length of your body. Each meridian is linked to a specific organ and also connects to more than 350 acupuncture points.

Illness and pain can be caused by obstructed energy flow at certain points along the corresponding meridian. Acupuncture therapy stimulates the meridian flow, helping the body to influence both your health and your mind. By inserting tiny acupuncture needles into designated points along these meridians, pain specialists can re-balance your energy flow to encourage both pain management and pain relief as well as stimulate your body’s natural healing process.
