Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing method that originated in China. In use for more than 3,000 years, acupuncture has helped countless people find relief from a number of health and wellness issues. 

Modern researchers find acupuncture a safe and effective way to treat numerous health complaints. Patients searching for treatment options that don’t rely on drug therapy or invasive surgery typically turn to acupuncture or related alternative approaches. 

Traditionally, acupuncture was thought to improve the flow of qi, a person’s essential life force, throughout the body. Today, researchers view acupuncture as a means of stimulating your nervous system. 

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture uses thin, sterile treatment needles inserted into your skin at specific points. This treatment is thought to alter the way the brain perceives pain. Electroacupuncture incorporates a safe electric current into the treatment needles to further boost the effects.  

What conditions respond well to acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a versatile treatment that aligns well with many needs. Conditions that respond well to acupuncture include:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Infertility
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Nausea and vomiting from cancer treatment
  • Menstrual cramping
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Osteoarthritis

These are just a few of the issues that draw patients to acupuncture. Many are so pleased with their results that they make acupuncture part of their ongoing wellness routine. 

Is acupuncture safe?

In the hands of a highly skilled practitioner, acupuncture is incredibly safe. The needles used during treatments are sterile and manufactured for one-time use. There is never any form of needle sharing. 

Acupuncture professionals undergo extensive training in placing the needles for various treatment types. Training includes hands-on practice before direct work with patients. 

Many people seek out acupuncture as a safe alternative to drug therapy. When you explore the side effects of prescription pain medication, especially the dangers of addiction, natural treatment options become even more appealing. 

Surgery is sometimes necessary, but it also carries several risks. In fact, many people undergo acupuncture to address postsurgical pain and other problems.
