What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment in which the acupuncturist will insert very thin needles into the skin at various strategic points within the body with an aim to improve and balance the body’s natural energy flow. The aim is to treat pain, reduce stress, and aid the patient’s overall wellness.
Blockages to the flow of chi can be caused by physical trauma, poor diet, overworking, and emotional pain. Our acupuncture practitioners will, therefore, start sessions with an examination of the individual to find the most appropriate acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture treatments may also include the use of cupping and moxibustion to support the needle-based treatments.
The aim is to actively aid the body’s ability to correct, repair, and rebalance its flow for significant pain relief. While the pain relief can last for an extended period, many patients find that repeat visits help them to enjoy the benefits of a pain-free existence.
Why Choose Acupuncture?
Acupuncture isn’t for everyone, but it is a painless treatment that can be used for an array of different problems and is shown to bring immediate results. Many patients feel reduced pain and increased movement in the problem areas as soon as they leave our med spa.
Aside from this, the use of acupuncture is free from inserting chemicals into the body (unlike many alternative and traditional treatments) while the sessions themselves are very relaxing. You’ll simply lie down while the acupuncturist gets to work on whichever treatment is deemed most suitable for your personal needs and requirements.
When added to the fact that sessions can last as little as 30 minutes (the initial consultation and session will last up to two hours), it’s not hard to see why so many people turn to this treatment type.
What Can Acupuncture Be Used For?
Acupuncture can be used to treat a host of short-term and ongoing conditions. The World Health Organization states that over 40 conditions can be treated by it. Some of the most common issues include:
- Dental pain
- Migraines and stress
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Menstrual cramps
- Respiratory disorders
Whether it’s a short-term treatment or repeated course, the results can be life-changing. Do you think you could benefit from acupuncture? If so, don’t hesitate to visit The Wellness Makeover Doctor in Mesa, AZ to learn more. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
