Acupuncture Q & A

 
 

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that uses thin, sterile needles to redirect the flow of energy through your body. This energy, or essential life force, is known as “qi,” which is pronounced like “chi.” 

Ancient Chinese medical experts taught that your qi runs along clearly defined pathways in your body, called meridians, and that there are 350 distinct points where acupuncture needles can access these meridians. 

Western medicine approaches acupuncture from a neurological standpoint. Acupuncture points are areas in the body where your muscles, nerves, and connective tissues can be stimulated to create measurable changes. 

Regardless of which approach you choose to believe, there is no mistaking the fact that acupuncture has brought positive change to the lives of many. 

What Issues Can Acupuncture Treat?

Because there are so many acupuncture points throughout your body the treatment can improve a wide range of conditions. Some of the issues acupuncture can treat include:

  • Low back pain
  • Hypertension
  • Painful periods
  • Infertility
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee pain
  • Headache and migraine
  • Sprains
  • Morning sickness
  • Allergies
  • Psoriasis, eczema, or other skin conditions
  • Digestive issues
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Pelvic Floor
  • Weight Loss

This is far from a comprehensive list. Acupuncture can improve your experience with many types of pain or medical complaints. 

Acupuncture for Pelvic Floor Therapy

In this condition, pelvic floor muscles are contracted, tense and weak. Blood flow is restricted, which can cause an acidic environment, can create an inflammatory process. It’s harmful to the region’s muscles and nerves. The muscles become tender and the nerves, causing subconscious chronic pain and tensing of the pelvic floor.  Endometriosis is another factor that could lead to pelvic floor hypertonia.

Our focus on individual care. We treat different orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions and diseases.

Acupuncture to Lose Weight

The treatment involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles at specific body points or “energy pathways.” The inserted needles stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural “feel good” hormones. This can create a calming, relaxing effect, which counteracts the need for excessive eating brought about by increased stress, frustration, or anxiety. In this respect, acupuncture can calm those so afflicted and help them lose weight without resorting to drugs.

Acupuncture for Migraine Headache Treatment

Acupuncture reduces the frequency of headache in individuals with migraine. The needle stimulates the nerves to release hormones, such as endorphins, that trigger a response from your body. This immune and circulation system stimulation relieves migraines and tension headaches.

Sessions ranging from 30 to 60 minutes depending on your needs.
