Practice & Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin needles in specific parts of the body to cure disease or alleviate pain. Because acupuncture is an entire system of medicine, it can conceivably be used to treat any disease. Some of our most commonly treated complaints are back pain, arthritis, muscle aches and pains, allergies, insomnia, fertility, weight loss, hypertension, anxiety, depression, chronic diarrhea, constipation, nicotine addiction, headaches, joint pain, PMS/menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Acupuncture can sometimes involve trigger point therapy, electrical stimulation, or cupping. Trigger point therapy involves the manipulation of tight knots in muscles and bands of over contracted muscle fiber. It is incredibly safe and effective for painfully tight muscle tissue. Electrical stimulation is used on needles often in cases of arthritis, sports-type injuries, post-surgical recovery, frozen shoulder, and other musculus-skeletal injuries. Suction cups are used for short periods of time in some cases to loosen muscle tissues and help the body flush toxins and waste products out of the area. When warranted these extras are provided at no additional charge. 30 minute or 60 minute massages are available to add on to your sessions for a very reasonable rate.
Great for everything from sore muscles to stress relief, acupuncture has been used for generations to treat nearly every type of illness or injury. Acupuncture sessions are generally 60 minutes from start to finish. Typically only the first 10 – 15 minutes are spent with the acupuncturist and the rest of the treatment is spent relaxing and rejuvenating. In many cases it may be covered through your health insurance for pain management so feel free to contact us with your information and verify if you are covered. In the event you do not have health insurance or it does not provide for acupuncture we still provide services at an extremely reasonable rate in an effort to make this type of care accessible to all.
Acupuncture appointments are currently only available on Saturday mornings. For more details on pricing and appointment information please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
