What is acupuncture, and how does it help?
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves an acupuncture specialist inserting very fine, metallic needles through a person’s skin at specific points on the body at various depths. Extensive research has shown that it can help relieve pain, and it is used for a wide range of other complaints, including stress management, mental health, high or low blood pressure, and labor induction! Concerning pain relief, American Specialty Health Incorporated conducted a national study in 2014 and 2015 involving 89,000 acupuncture patients. Of those patients, 93 percent reported successful pain relief with treatment! Not only is acupuncture effective, but it is also highly safe with minimal to zero side effects, can be safely and effectively combined with other treatments, and can serve as an alternative treatment for patients who are unable to take pain relief medications.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works by stimulating a response in your central nervous system, releasing chemicals into the brain, muscles, and spinal cord that activate your body’s self-healing mechanisms. The hair-thin needles used in acupuncture are placed in strategic anatomic points known as acupuncture points or acupoints.
What should I expect from an acupuncture appointment?
Before we can safely move forward with acupuncture, one of our acupuncture specialists will have an initial discussion with you to review your medical history, assess any problem areas, and what you hope to achieve from acupuncture. They may also perform a brief physical exam to develop a treatment plan catered to help you best. Once we can guarantee that you can safely receive acupuncture, we will get started!
First, the acupuncture specialist will ask you to lie comfortably upon the treatment table, either on your back or stomach, depending on the specific treatment area. The specialist will then place the acupuncture needles in strategic locations to stimulate your body’s healing response. Once the needles are in place, they will likely stay there for five to 30 minutes. While you may feel some pressure during the needle placement, you should not feel any pain and only minimal discomfort. Most patients report feeling exceptionally relaxed after an acupuncture treatment!
