Acupuncture is an amazing way to boost your health naturally. Personalized treatment plans may utilize various modalities such as TCM acupuncture, sports medicine acupuncture, cupping and gua-sha (soft-tissue scraping), moxibustion, auricular therapy, herbal supplementation, or nutritional/lifestyle recommendations to help you achieve optimal health results.
TCM Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin, sterile, stainless steel, disposable needles at specific points. Needling acupoints stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the pain experience or trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, corrects imbalances regarding the function of internal organs, and promotes physical and emotional well-being.
While often associated with pain management and relief, TCM acupuncture can be used to treat many things such as digestive issues, menstrual and reproductive problems, pre and post-natal support, and recovery and healing from surgery and sports injuries. TCM acupuncture can also play a role in mental health support, immune support, increased energy levels, and sleep quality.
Acupuncture is appropriate for just about anyone, at any age. Alternatively, acupressure can also be done at acupoint sites on infants, children, and adults who may be hesitant to acupuncture.
