Acupuncutre

Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine that involves inserting needles into the skin at various sites to induce anesthesia. There are two ways of viewing the benefits of acupuncture. The traditional view, established by Chinese medicine revolves around unblocking certain meridians or channels to increase blood flow. The modern view maintains that acupuncture stimulates one or more of your body’s signaling systems, which can increase the rate of natural healing processes.

About Acupuncture

The acupuncturist first needs to decide which areas he or she wants to target. This is done using four diagnostic methods: inspection, auscultation, palpation and percussion, and inquiry. Inspection focuses on the face and tongue, auscultation listens to breath sounds and by smelling body odor, inquiring focuses on the complaints of the patient, and palpation feels the body for tender points. The next step in treatment is to determine the temperature of the needle, angle of insertion, speed of insertion, and withdrawal. This is all determined by the disorder being treated and the amount of anesthesia necessary. Sometimes we use electric current through the needle as a stimulant in unblocking the meridians.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get acupuncture?

For acute conditions such as back pain, common cold, or sports related injuries, we suggest multiple visits in a short time frame. In order to have a lasting effect, it is best to receive it frequently. For chronic conditions, we recommend that you average two visits a week depending on the condition and its severity.
