Acupuncture Benefits

Acupuncture is an age-old traditional medicine that can trace its roots back 5000 years to Ancient China. Through millennia of development, the technique has been fine-tuned and is now one of the most widely practiced forms of alternative therapy on Earth. It is known to prevent and treat conditions through the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into selected acupuncture points of the body. This process promotes the body's natural healing process to improve function and to restore balance to the body.

By helping balance out your life energy, or your qi, it can prevent certain conditions or promote well-being. Acupuncture is one of the four pillars that make up Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); the others include Moxabustion, Tuina Chinese massage and Chinese Herbs. These pillars work together in combination as a complete medical system known as Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Here at Acupuncture Care Holistic Center we practice the balanced method of acupuncture also known as distal point acupuncture. Therefore most acupuncture points chosen are located from the knee and elbow down. This method of acupuncture allows movement during treatment to increase Range of Motion and mobility. This stimulates the nervous system via the midbrain increasing blood flow, endorphins, prostaglandins and hormone production. It is a very effective method of treatment with proven quality results.

Acupuncture most commonly treats but is not limited to the following:

  • Chronic pain
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle-skeletal pain
  • Arthritic pain
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Fertility
  • Women's health (irregular periods, painful periods, PCOS, endometriosis, PMS)
  • Menopause
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Mental emotional disorders
  • Digestive disorders (IBS, Crohns, Constipation, Diarrhea)

What else should I do?

In order to receive the full benefits of treatment you must also understand that you are more than just the sum of the symptoms of your diseases. Your health is a complex matter that can only be fully understood my approaching it holistically. This means that you need to be aware that the choices in you make in your daily life can heavily affect the outcomes of your treatment.

Acupuncture works for helping symptoms and preventing certain conditions, but in order to completely balance your life energy you need to follow healthy practices. This means eating better, exercising more, and avoiding things that can cause you stress. Here at the Acupuncture Care Holistic Center we recommend a healthy diet to alongside the treatments that we provide. Then and only then can you have a balanced qi.

How many treatments will I need?

Everyone is a unique individual. No person's imbalances or conditions are identical to those of anyone else. Using TCM diagnosis, your practitioner will determine your body's current imbalance at your first visit. This will include looking for certain physiological changes on your tongue, taking your pulse, learning your complete health history, and asking many questions about your body and habits.

Once your imbalance is determined, an acupuncture and Chinese herbs tailor-made treatment for your body will be preceded. No matter whether your practitioner primarily uses acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine or some combination of both, the focus will be on eliminating the root imbalance that is causing your condition.
