What can acupuncture help with?
Acupuncture can help back pain, other forms of muscle and joint pain, arthritis, and migraine headaches. Acupuncture can also provide relief for insomnia, digestive disorders, seasonal allergies, and certain side effects of chemotherapy. Acupuncture has also been shown to be an effective way in managing stress and anxiety.
Acupuncture is a wonderful way to support children and teenagers. Both teens and younger children respond very well to acupuncture for all of the conditions I mentioned above, as well as sports injuries, hormone regulation, and general “growing pains.”
As an acupuncturist, I have been trained to “treat the person, not the condition.” This means I work in partnership to help each of my patients find relief and feelings of balance in their life.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture uses small sterile needles to access lines of energy, called meridians, that represent various organ systems. Most acupuncture needles are as narrow as a single hair. Patients often feel a small sensation when the needles are inserted; depending upon the condition being treated there might be stronger sensations. Feelings of release and relaxation are common.
