Check out some of the great benefits of Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an Eastern healing art that has been practiced for centuries in China and in the Orient. It utilizes special, very thin stainless steel needles that are inserted at different points on the body. When inserted, these needles help modify the pain response of your body and increase healing activity. The needles are solid and no fluid is injected into your body.

What conditions can acupuncture be used for?

There is a high degree of success in treating low back pain, neck pain (whiplash), arthritic pain, migraines, tension and vascular headaches, TMJ (lockjaw), menstrual cramps and pain, abdominal pain and angina pain. It has also been used very effectively to stop smoking and for weight loss.

Can acupuncture help anybody?

Like any other medical treatment, the results of acupuncture will not be known until after it is done. It is effective in as many as 85% of patients who have failed to respond to conventional medical or surgical management.

How often should I be treated?

The frequency and the number of treatments depends on your clinical status as well as your need and your response to acupuncture.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Usually, you will feel only a slight prick. The feeling is much less painful than having an injection. After the acupuncture needle is inserted a sensation of tingling, warmth, soreness, or numbness may be generated. These sensations may appear locally or in a somewhat distant part of the body.

Is there any bleeding?

Usually not. You may not even see a needle mark. Sometimes, however, a minute invisible blood vessel underneath the skin may be pricked during the insertion of the thin needle.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture releases endorphins, which are produced by our body to suppress pain via certain neural mechanisms.

Does my health insurance cover acupuncture treatments?

Many insurance companies do cover acupuncture. You should check with your individual carrier for insurance information regarding acupuncture treatments. Our staff and the Doctors will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
