Chinese medicine believes if that one's energy flow is disturbed, illness will result. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s energy network so the individual can readjust their own internal and external balance. It helps patients rekindle their healing ability. While most well known as a pain management treatment, acupuncture is commonly used all over the world to treat a seemingly endless list of ailments, including allergies and asthma, digestive issues such as GERD and IBS, menstrual irregularities and female infertility, headache and migraine, insomnia, and overall stress. Wondering if acupuncture can help you? Call us today to find out!
Admit it. When you don't feel well you can't look your best. Acupuncture can preserve that youthful glow we all want to have. The first way is by restoring balance to the energy flow of the body. You feel good from the inside out. Then, for those of us who maybe spent a little to much time lying in the sun, there's always the acu-facelift. Facial rejuvenation has been a fast growing segment in the acupuncture market and provides an alternative to pricier cosmetic procedures.
Acupuncture needles are very thin filiform (solid) needles, usually made from stainless steel. By law, they must be sterile, single use needles and are disposed of as medical waste. (Doesn't seem so "alternative" now, huh?)
During an acupuncture session, you will lie down on a comfortable table while the acupuncturist inserts thin needles into specific points on your body. You may feel a slight prick or a sensation of warmth or heaviness. You will then relax for about 20-30 minutes before the needles are removed.
It is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing to your acupuncture session. It is also best to avoid eating a heavy meal or consuming alcohol or caffeine before your appointment.
Many insurance plans now cover acupuncture, but it is best to check with your provider to see if it is covered under your specific plan.
