Question: what are the benefits of Acupunture?
Acupuncture is a holistic ancient Chinese medicine that simultaneously treats the entire body by bringing the energy back into balance, and therefore can be beneficial in many ways. Often patients come in with one symptom or disease, and leave noticing that other discomforts have disappeared.
The most common aliments our Acupuncturist treats is chronic pain ( back pain, knee pain, and joint discomfort), inflammatory conditions, menopause, menstrual disorders, depression, anxiety, and migraines. These are just a handful of the many conditions that acupuncture has been successful in treating. Holistic medicine, in this case specifically acupuncture, is especially successful in treating conditions that can plague a person at an emotional level, which may lead to physical pain. More patients are seeking help from outside the medical mainstream to treat chronic conditions. Acupuncture is becoming the treatment of choice for difficult to treat clinical conditions such as fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.
Along with treating a whole host of illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions, acupuncture is also very beneficial as “wellness medicine”. Acupuncture can be used even if you are not experiencing any symptoms. This ancient Chinese medicine can successfully boost the immune system, increase energy, and help you continue to feel your best. Most of our patients feel less anxious and rejuvenated when they leave our office after their treatment.
During your initial session, our acupuncturist will consult with you to discuss your symptoms and concerns, and design a specific treatment plan for you. Your symptoms are unique to you, so your treatment plan will also be personally designed for you. By following this treatment plan, you can expect to notice results over a series of 4-6 weekly treatments. Some people report feeling relaxed or even noticing a reduction in symptoms after just the first treatment.
Acupuncture is a wonderful complimentary medicine that works well in conjunction with western medical treatments, and is considered safe and effective for almost everyone.
