A Modern Scientific Perspective On Acupuncture
Stimulation of acupuncture meridian points cause the release of a multitude of nervous system chemicals in our brain, spinal cord and muscles that help restore the body’s ability to heal naturally.
These chemicals provide tremendous health nenefits, whether it is influencing your body to heal more quickly, or simply altering how you may be experiencing your pain.
Acupuncture Is A Cumulative Process
Each acupuncture treatment builds on the one before it. Acupuncture is cumulative, with the best results acquired by allowing your body the necessary time needed to heal. For example, those in acute pain need several treatments in a shorter period of time to alleviate symptoms, while chronic conditions require maintenance treatments over several months.
Canidates For Acupuncture
Our licensed acupuncturist’s meets with each patient prior to their first treatment to ensure they are a suitable candidate for acupuncture, but most men and women looking for a natural approach to overall wellness are candidates for acupuncture. Those who are not eligible for acupuncture include those with hemophilia or contagious skin diseases. We take special precautions when working with those on blood-thinning medication or tend to bruise easily.
