What is Acupuncture?
An ancient healing system from Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture balances the body’s energy system by moving life force energy (or qi) through the body. This is accomplished when our acupuncturist inserts thin needles along the pathways or meridians in your body.
The needles we use are single-use, sterile needles. They are so fine that many patients feel no pain when the needles are inserted.
Before every visit, we ask you questions about your symptoms, pain, and lifestyle. We then place you on a massage table and insert needles at certain meridians. In some cases, we use herbs in combination with the needles to promote the desired effect.
Once the needles have been inserted, we leave you alone to rest. Some patients become so relaxed during this portion of the treatment that they actually fall asleep!
The acupuncture needles promote the release of endorphins in your bloodstream. This may help you relax while flooding your body with fresh blood and energy. Acupuncture needles boost circulation at the site of insertion, directly influencing the muscle recovery process and helping patients heal faster.
Improved circulation from acupuncture also promotes muscle recovery, reduces stiffness and soreness, and increases mobility after injury. Athletes can benefit from adding regular acupuncture treatments to their recovery plan.
After the needles have balanced the qi in your body, our acupuncturist will remove the needles and send you home. To further increase your healing from physical or mental conditions, we may recommend lifestyle modifications or nutrition supplements that support your health.
Acupuncture is safe to use, effective at treating a range of health conditions, and comes with no side effects. Thus, it can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with traditional care. We have patients that are babies and older adults.
What Conditions Does Acupuncture Treat?
Our acupuncturist serving Norcross & Buford uses acupuncture to treat back and neck pain, knee pain, sciatica, herniated disc, arthritis, and other physical ailment. We can also treat depression, constipation, IBS, sleep disorders, and chronic fatigue. Many of our patients use acupuncture to support their management of chronic disease, while others seek short-term relief for conditions such as pregnancy-related pain, stress, allergies, or healing after an auto injury.
Depending on the condition you seek treatment for, it may take several visits to reduce the symptoms you feel. However, most patients feel a direct reduction in symptoms after their first visit.
