Acupuncture / Acupressure
Although people often associate acupuncture with large needles and mystical practices, modern research has shown that it is a powerful tool in reducing pain and promoting the body’s natural healing abilities.
If there is an imbalance in the natural, health flow of energy, this can reflect as a physical problem. By stimulating a combination of specific points, the acupuncturist can restore balance in the body and assist the body in healing itself more effectively.
Acupuncture is extremely effective when applied properly and when used in conjunction with other natural health sciences such as: chiropractic care, exercise, and nutritional therapies.
Acupuncture has been credited with helping numerous conditions, including: acute and chronic pain, headaches, migraines, allergies, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, anxiety, low back pain, smoking cessation, and many others. Several studies have been performed in Europe and Asia to confirm these applications. The World Health Organization, after recently performing a comprehensive study of Acupuncture literature and research stated that “the sheer weight of evidence demands that acupuncture must be taken seriously as a clinical procedure of considerable value.”
How does it work?
We utilize specialized diagnostic equipment to graph the energy pattern of the body and visualize any imbalances that may be present. This test takes only a few minutes and allows both the patient and the doctor to view and discuss the results. Following this examination, specific points will be treated to address the complaints and imbalances, customizing treatments to the individual. We have many types of treatment available including traditional needle stimulation and the modern laser or electronic stimulation modalities, which are equally effective.
At First State Health & Wellness we learn a patient’s complete health history and perform a thorough examination that enables us to develop a customized, effective program of treatment for each individual.
