Do you feel like you have trouble relaxing?
Are you constantly on edge or easily overwhelmed?
Do you struggle with chronic pain that just won’t go away, no matter what you do?
If so, you’re not alone. Many people today are dealing with the effects of an imbalanced system, which can lead to a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and more. In Chinese medicine, if the meridian or pathways systems are out of balance, signals can be misrouted, causing blockages and distress throughout the body. This can also hinder your ability to feel relaxed and content.
Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese healing practice, has been used for thousands of years to help regulate the “Chi” or energy flow that promotes overall well-being. The “Chi” flows as a link to pathways, also called channels or meridians, that relate and communicate to the entire body. If a meridian is “sick” it cannot allow Chi to flow and pain or sickness sets in. By tuning in to specific points on the body with fine needles, acupuncture can help to restore balance, relieve pain, and improve overall health and wellness. Though we also offer dry-needling, acupuncture is different in dealing with physical pain. Acupuncture is just one of the many mind-body modalities we use to help regain balance.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is derived from eastern philosophical thinking that applies the concepts of yin-yang and the five elements. Ancient physicians documented the body’s pulse, blood, body fluids, and correlations of seasons, winds, vitality, flavors, etc., to the adaptation to the environment. This equal and opposite forces (Yin-Yang), exist as hot and cold, up and down, open or close, big or small of every element on earth as a balance. In nature, the seasons, climate, elements, colors, along with all functions of the human body all intertwine. This is a universal order of harmony that God created. When this healing energy is not in harmony, a dis-ease state begins.
How It Works
Tiny needles are inserted carefully into key points on the body to trigger a flow to areas where it is blocked as too strong, or too weak.
When healthy flow is restored, the body’s natural healing abilities are activated, sending the body back into balance. Most people find these sessions very relaxing creating a sense of well-being.
Acupuncture effectively treats your concerns via specific meridians using points on your head, arms, hands, lower legs and feet.
The 35–45-minute sessions are in a dim room with calm music, practicing meditative breathing, setting the pace to have “stillness” and quietness from today’s stressors.
The treatment schedule may take 6-12 visits over 1-2 months to get to the core issue, but oftentimes, relief can be felt at the first visit.
The points are chosen to establish and improve the Chi flow so healing takes place. Often times, the symptomatic pain is reduced at the first visit. This combination of care is a holistic approach that our office greatly encourages.
