What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a primary health care method that has flourished in China for over 2,500 years and is now widely used throughout Asia, Europe, and North America.
Acupuncture is performed with the application of needles and pressure to specific ’points’ on the body. These points are grouped along specific pathways that cross the body. As long as the energy flows freely through these pathways, health is maintained.
When the flow of energy is either absent, deficient, interrupted, excessive or blocked in an area, health is disrupted, resulting in illness and pain. By stimulating appropriate acupuncture points along these pathways, the energy is release and regulated, and health is restored.
Via this method, acupuncture helps strengthen your physical body, prevent disease, control pain, and achieve longevity.
What should you expect during treatment?
Most patients find the treatment very relaxing, which brings on a feeling of well-being. Most are surprised at how comfortable they are during the process and how easily the needles are placed. Some people even go to sleep during treatment. The tiny thin needles are specifically designed to be virtually painless.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
One of the great advantages of acupuncture is the absence of serious side effects. Needles generally cause no bleeding on entry or removal. There is minimal risk of organ or blood vessel penetration.
How many treatments are necessary?
Each person is unique with an individualized treatment plan. No two conditions or people respond exactly the same. The length of treatment depends on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. In order to get the best therapeutic results, it is important to follow the treatment plan and recommendations carefully.
Treatment duration depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, and other factors. Re-evaluations will be done to assess your progress and your therapist communicates with your physician to help you achieve your therapy goals.
