Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique which balances the body’s natural energy by stimulating specific points.

 

Acupuncture originated in China over 5,000 years ago.  It was brought to the United States in the early 1970’s and has been widely studied since that time.

 

In recent years, its effectiveness has been scientifically proven in treatment of migraines, tension headaches, neck disorders, peripheral joint osteoarthritis, chronic low back pain, and nausea and vomiting.  Hundreds of other conditions have shown favorable results with acupuncture, and many studies are currently underway.

 

The theory of acupuncture is based on the body’s own natural energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”).   The Qi is thought to travel within the body in certain pathways, or meridians.  When the flow of energy is interrupted (if it moves too slowly or too quickly), the result is an imbalance, which creates symptoms in the body.

 

By stimulating specific points along the imbalanced meridians, the flow of qi is restored and the body returns to its natural balance.  The body can then heal itself, not that different from chiropractic!

 

The needles used in traditional acupuncture are very small – about as big around as a strand of human hair.  So they are relatively painless.  Other ways to stimulate points include massage, heat, cold, pressure, and electrical stimulation.

 

Adverse effects are relatively rare, with mild discomfort and bruising at the stimulation point being the most common side effect.

 

In our office, acupuncture is performed in a private treatment area.  Typical points are located on the arms, legs, back, and abdomen.  Treatments last about 20 minutes, during which time you may read, sleep, or just relax.

 

If you or someone you love would like to experience the benefits of acupuncture, let us know.  The average cost is $50 per session, it’s covered by some insurance plans, and payment plans are always available!
