What is Acupuncture?
For over four thousand years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has employed Acupuncture as a means of relieving pain, reducing symptoms of illness, and achieving optimal wellness. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), Acupuncture is a treatment method that involves the use of needles to stimulate specific points on the body.
The goal of the Acupuncturist is to unblock the blocked channels/meridians and relieve pain and symptoms associated with illness through the strategic application of needles in specific “acu-points”, to stimulate the energy flow though meridians, and then, the body’s nerves, muscles and connective tissue. The NCCAM indicates that as many as 40% of Americans are turning to complementary or alternative medicine, which includes Acupuncture, to gain relief from pain and chronic illness.
What Does Acupuncture Treat?
An Acupuncturist is skilled in treating a range of symptoms and disorders as Acupuncture aims to correct imbalances within the body. Many individuals experiencing chronic pain choose Acupuncture as an effective treatment method, because adverse side effects are rare. Acupuncture has been used to treat headaches, menstrual pain, and localized pain in the body, such as in the back and neck.
In addition to the treatment of pain, Acupuncture has long been used to increase the body’s immune response. Many Acupuncture patients begin feeling relief from pain and symptoms shortly after beginning treatments. Acupuncture helps patients achieve positive results when used as part of an individualized treatment plan.
How is Acupuncture Performed?
Acupuncture involves the application of needles to specific areas of the body. In the United States, the FDA regulates Acupuncture needles to ensure each is designed to meet high standards of sterility and is manufactured for single use. Many individuals report that the application of Acupuncture needles is far less painful than receiving an injection. Acupuncture treatments are often administered in a series and the majority of Acupuncture patients report little or no side effects.
