Acupuncture / On Pins and Needles with Chinese Medicine!

Acupuncture is an ancient, non-medical technique frequently used in the relief and treatment of chronic pain.  It is the oldest natural-healing method known to man.  In Asian cultures, for more than 2000 years, the skilled application of Acupuncture has served as treatment and preventative for a multitude of conditions.  Acupuncture is also used as a means of enhancing immunity and building recuperative responses.


In Acupuncture, very thin, solid, sterile stainless steel needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points.  Insertion of the needles is mostly unnoticed by patients, though sometimes an inflamed area may cause the patient to feel a small pinch followed by the sensation of tingling, numbness, slight ache, heaviness, or traveling warmth.  The 15 to 30 minute period during which the needles remain in place allow patients to experience a sense of profound relaxation.

Accupuncture  is well known for its benefits when applied to musculoskeletal and neurlogical conditions such as: 

Arthritis ( Rhematoid, degenerative, and osteoarthritis) -- Neuralgia -- Infertility -- Back Pain -- Neurogenic pain -- Bell’s Palsy -- Sciatica -- Bursitis -- Spinal Stenosis -- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -- Stiff Neck -- Fibromyalgia -- Shingles -- Headache -- Tendonitis -- Herniated Disc -- Trigeminal Neuralgia

In my own personal experiences, acupuncture, in conjunction with massage and chiropractic therapies, prove to be a great way to help maintain a healthy balance of life chi and minimize the effects of stress on the body.  I have gained relief many times over from shoulder, lower back, and hip pain, as well as staving off headaches and early stage sinus infections!
