Originating from Ancient Chinese medicine, Acupuncture is used to treat numerous health issues from migraines and osteoarthritis to anxiety. It is usually used to help treat pain conditions. The procedure consists of thin needles being placed at specific pressure points in the body which stimulates endorphins and other chemicals to help relieve pain. It is traditionally believed to restore health by restoring the flow of energy known as Qi, a “Life Force”, within the body
Some patients may require regular sessions of Acupuncture in order to see true results, other chronic conditions may require several months of treatment. Once a proper examination by a professional is completed, a personalized treatment plan is scheduled to restore energy flow through your body.
There is little to no pain involved in acupuncture treatments, Acupuncture requires the patient to lie on their front, back or side depending on where the needles are to be inserted. There are three hundred and fifty acupuncture points in the body that needle insertion has proven to support. The needles are inserted for around five and thirty minutes. It is abnormal to feel any pain or discomfort for the period of this time.
In the past five years there has been an overwhelming amount of information about mental health’s impacts on physical health. Acupuncture patients who have noticed negative changes in their mood and mental wellbeing have said to feel more content and energized following their treatment. Acupuncture restores the natural balance in the body and can benefit sleeping and eating habits as well as your physical well being.
