WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that has existed for over three thousand years and has contributed to good health for centuries. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into certain locations on the body, and can sometimes include the application of pressure, heat or laser light.
THE HЕАLІNG PОWЕR ОF AСUРUNСTURЕ
In recent years, acupuncture has piqued more people’s interest as a health and wellness solution. The treatment’s non-invasive nature and few side effects have contributed to its popularity. Acupuncture is based on balancing out energies of the body and mind to promote good health.
Acupuncture not only eases symptoms, it addresses the root cause of a disease. Patients who undergo acupuncture feel a sense of satisfaction and relief, and can experience a sense of euphoria and extreme relaxation. These techniques are widely practised as therapeutic interventions across the world, and have been shown to produce positive results for people in areas relating to addiction, headache, lower back pain, stroke rehabilitation, and asthma.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the body to activate and stimulate healing and reduce pain. The points at which the needles are inserted are known as acupoints. The needles are usually left in place for anywhere from a couple of minutes to up to half an hour.
DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?
Many patients report minor discomfort when the needles are being inserted, but the overall treatment is relatively painless and the end results are often worth persevering.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
Acupuncture is used to treat the wholeness of the individual. Your acupuncturist will use comprehensive assessment methods to determine the state of your of health. Once the comprehensive assessment is complete, a specific and customized plan is developed.
All Things Natural approaches each client as a unique whole, and treatments are designed to address not only the primary issue, but also the underlying issues at all levels of health.
The combination of acupoints used are chosen specifically for you, following an extensive exploration of your medical history, observation of your pulse and tongue, a comprehensive questionnaire and a physical examination. Your acupuncture treatments will be reassessed and re-evaluated at each subsequent session and may be altered.
ACUPUNCTURE AND WESTERN MEDICINE
Acupuncture works very well alongside conventional medicine treatments and together with other complementary medicine therapies. Use of painkillers, anti-inflammatory medications and steroids temporarily relieves aches, pains, stiffness and/or swelling; however, prolonged use can mask deeper problems. Pain is often a "good" sign, and can be thought of as your body signaling to you that attention is needed to prevent further deterioration or symptoms. Acupuncture treatment provides safe and immediate drug-free pain relief, as well as long lasting health benefits that extend to all aspects of health.
Acupuncture works on a deep, constitutional level of an individual. Addressing the root cause of the problem results in resolution of symptoms and improvement in general health and longevity.
