What is Acupuncture Treatment?
Recent developments in science have determined that human beings are complex bioelectric systems. Remarkably, this understanding has been the foundation of acupuncture practice for several thousand years.
Acupuncture treatments utilize the insertion of fine, sterile, metal filiform needles into specific acupuncture points of the body. These needles are about as thick as a strand of hair, and insertion is usually painless.
We also offer auricular acupuncture (ear acupuncture) which is based on the premise that the ear is a microsystem which reflects your entire body. Call us today to discuss specific ear acupuncture points or symptoms we can treat.
Energy circulates throughout the body along well-defined pathways. If this energy circulation is disrupted, the result can be pain or illness. Acupuncture points are stimulated to balance the circulation of energy, which influences the health of the entire being and promotes the body’s natural healing ability.
Throughout its long history, acupuncture has established a solid reputation as a system of health that works. Most conditions can be corrected or improved without any side effects commonly caused by chemical drugs. As a comprehensive system of preventive health care, many people also rely on acupuncture for health maintenance.
Because of acupuncture’s effectiveness at treating many conditions with very few side effects, Western medicine practitioners have begun to use a simplified version, renaming it “dry needling”. However, this simplified version tends to only address temporarily relieving pain, and does nothing to actually correct the cause of the condition or heal the patient. Our licensed and board certified acupuncturists are fully trained in treating the patient to not only alleviate pain and other symptoms, but to also correct the underlying cause of the condition, thereby removing possibility of recurrence or additional flare-ups. The training and education experience of our licensed and board certified acupuncturists by far surpasses others for these modalities, providing you, the patient, with the very highest standard of care and expertise.
