What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an Eastern form of medicine that originated in China. It involves the insertion of extremely small needles into specific points on the body to target specific health problems. It is nearly painless and provides tremendous relief. With the use of laser stimulation, acupuncture can also be performed in our office without the use of needles for those who are sensitive. There are 14 basic acupuncture channels called meridians that traverse the entire body. They travel down the arms and legs, all around your trunk, and into the head. The channels also move inwardly to connect with all the organs of the body. There are 364 traditional acupuncture points throughout each of the 14 channels. When the points are stimulated with needles, finger pressure, and laser to name a few, an energetic change is made within the body that in turn creates a physical change in how our bodies work.
Chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture are excellent complementary treatments for improving and maintaining your health. Both Chiropractic and Acupuncture are designed to correct imbalances, prompt natural healing and restore a state of health that was formerly impeded.
Chiropractic treatment is most commonly administered using targeted adjustments throughout the spine to correct subluxations or obstructions that are based within the nervous system.
Acupuncture, on the other hand, is based on the overall flow of biological energy across the body’s meridian points. Puncture or pressure is used to manipulate precise Meridian Points using very thin needles. This method removes any blockages that interfere with the body’s internal balance.
In many difficult to treat cases, the use of chiropractic care and acupuncture together may be the most efficient treatment method with the fastest results.
