Acupuncture at Love Chiropractic Center

While acupuncture may sound scary, it’s actually relaxing and has many health benefits. At Love Chiropractic Center, we provide acupuncture treatment in our warm and welcoming office. Acupuncture is a popular holistic therapy and type of traditional Chinese medicine that has been helping people for centuries. It is often combined with other healing services such as cupping therapy and laser therapy. Here’s a look at acupuncture and how it can help you.

What Is Acupuncture?

According to traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has pathways, known as meridians, which allow energy to flow through the body. However, sometimes these energy channels become unbalanced or even obstructed. By inserting needles into key points, energy flow can be stimulated to become more balanced.

Treatment

Needles used for acupuncture treatment are very thin and do not cause pain. The number of treatments you will need depends on your health condition, but often patients receive six to eight treatments.

Because acupuncture is a holistic treatment, if you are seeking relief from neck pain, for instance, needles may be inserted in other areas of your body, not just where you are experiencing pain.

How many needles are inserted? It depends based on your condition, but often between five to 20 needles are used and are kept in position for about 10 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, you simply remain still and relax. The acupuncturist may twirl the needles during the treatment and heat may be applied.

Results

Oftentimes, people feel energized, yet relaxed after an acupuncture treatment. Some patients feel tired after receiving acupuncture and report changes in their eating and bowel habits. Sometimes, there is no response to acupuncture. Although many people report improvement in conditions ranging from menstrual cramps to anxiety as well as insomnia and chronic pain.

Risks

Because the needles are inserted into the skin using single-use disposable needles, the risks of acupuncture causing health issues are minimal, as long as you receive treatment from an acupuncturist who is competent and certified. You may experience side effects like soreness or bruising. However, check with your health care provider before receiving acupuncture treatment.
