Acupunture Therapy

What is Acupuncture Therapy?

Acupuncture is a form of holistic or eastern medicine dating back over 2,500 years when it originated as Chinese traditional medicine—acupuncture works by stimulating specific pressure points that balance the patient’s energy life flow. When patients are experiencing pain or stress, their life flow is negatively impacted. Thin needles are inserted into specific points in the body chosen by the provider based on the patient’s symptoms.

An acupuncture session lasts for approximately 30 minutes. The patient will discuss their symptoms and complaints with the provider, who will determine which acupuncture points to use. The number of needles inserted varies based on the complaint. The treatment is generally painless, although some patients describe a slight ache or tingling sensation.

Acupuncture is effective in treating many illnesses, including:

  • migraines
  • muscle soreness
  • reduces stress
  • Reduces pain by releasing the body’s natural pain killers such as oxytocin(hormone)
  • helps insomnia
  • reduces joint pain
  • helps to reduce back and neck pain
  • relieves digestive problems and more

Positive results are often seen after one treatment depending on the condition’s severity.  Usually, multiple treatments are recommended for the results.

Electro-acupuncture is a modernized version of traditional acupuncture. Thin needles are inserted into specific points in the body chosen by the provider based on the patient’s symptoms. The needles are then stimulated with an electric current. This allows the acupuncture points to be stimulated more compared to traditional acupuncture. In addition, the electric current stimulates the body to release natural anti-inflammatory and pain-modulating chemicals.

Electro-acupuncture can be used as a complementary therapy to help manage several complaints, such as headaches, neck pain, and low back pain. However, it is typically most effective with other treatments, such as chiropractic care.
