Acupuncture Q & A

What Precisely Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of medicine that originated in Eastern cultures. Today, it’s widely used in both the East and the West to treat a variety of ailments and improve overall health. Acupuncture procedures can treat physical pain, as well as emotional and mental conditions.

Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s energy system to its proper balance. Micro-current stimulation and needles are used to manipulate the body’s energy system and bring it back into proper alignment. Once the system is in its proper balance, any physical, emotional or mental ailments that were caused by an imbalance in the system will be resolved.

Is Acupuncture Considered Safe?

Acupuncture is widely considered a safe way to treat many conditions. Like all procedures and treatments, it must be administered by a properly trained acupuncturist. As long as treatments are administered by a person who is trained and licensed, the procedure is safe.

Who Might Benefit From Acupuncture?

Many people stand to potentially benefit from a course of acupuncture treatments. Treatments can be used to address specific conditions or to improve overall health. Thus, anyone who is suffering from a particular source of physical pain, emotional anguish or mental turmoil might benefit from acupuncture, as may anyone who is in good health and wants to do everything they can to ensure they stay healthy.

How Long Does Acupuncture Take?

A typical course of acupuncture treatments may last several weeks or possibly even a few months. Occasionally, results are noticeable after a single treatment, but they usually improve even more after multiple sessions.

A single acupuncture treatment doesn’t take long. Most last just a little longer than a typical doctor’s appointment. Acupuncture is performed as an outpatient procedure, which means patients are welcome to return to their home, work or school following the appointment.

Is Acupuncture Covered by Health Insurance?
