What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a technique used to unblock and realign your body's energy flow. This yields an array of health benefits, including improved digestion, pain reduction, anti-inflammation, tissue healing, increased cellular metabolism, stress relief, and restoration of hormonal balances.
The most common type of acupuncture involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into the skin. When inserted, these needles trigger a cascade of biological responses within the body that promote healing.
At our clinic, we also offer other beneficial types of acupuncture, including:
- cupping with glass vacuums
- trigger point electrical stimulation
- moxibustion via infrared light or heated charcoal
Safety and comfort are our highest priorities. All of our staff members who administer acupuncture techniques to our patients are certified and trained professionals.
What is acupuncture used for?
Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of health conditions which affecting any one of the major health systems in the body (musculoskeletal, neurological, hormonal, psychological, nutritional, and immunological systems). Conditions may include:
- Depression and addiction
- Skin disorders include acne, eczema, and psoriasis
- Back and neck pain
- Muscle spasms
Acupuncture has even been shown to help with allergy relief and weight loss because it can stimulate both the immune system and the digestive system.
Is acupuncture safe?
Yes. Most people experience little or no discomfort during an acupuncture session. The risks of adverse reactions associated with acupuncture therapy is extremely low. Side effects, like skin irritation and tenderness, are also very rare. If they do occur, they are usually quite mild and resolve quickly.
Can acupuncture be provided along with chiropractic care?
Yes. The beneficial effects of chiropractic care are often accelerated when used in conjunction with acupuncture. Both chiropractic therapy and acupuncture are complementary services that aim to address and resolve the underlying causes of disorder and dysfunction within the body.
