What is Acupuncture and How Can It Help Me?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine practice that has been used for centuries to treat various illnesses and promote overall health and well-being. It involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points of the body to stimulate energy flow or Qi (pronounced “chee”). Despite its many benefits, many people are still skeptical about acupuncture and are unsure of how it works and how it can benefit them. In this blog post, we will explore what acupuncture is, how it works, and how it can help you.

Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that aims to balance the body’s energy flow and promote healing. The practice of acupuncture involves the use of fine, sterile needles, which are inserted into key points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The needles are placed along meridians, which are pathways that correspond to specific organs and systems in the body.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used to treat various conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, and respiratory problems. It can also be effective in the treatment of stress-related disorders, such as insomnia and tension headaches. Acupuncture is also used to promote general health and well-being by enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities.

One of the most significant benefits of acupuncture is that it is natural and non-invasive. Unlike conventional medical treatments, acupuncture aims to support the body’s natural healing abilities rather than suppressing symptoms. As a result, acupuncture can be an effective alternative to prescription medication or invasive medical procedures for many people.

Natural Pain Relief and Holistic Wellbeing

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s energy flow. Proponents of acupuncture believe that when the body’s energy flow is disrupted or blocked, it can lead to illness or disease. By stimulating specific points on the body, acupuncture can help to restore the balance of energy and promote healing.

One of the most commonly cited benefits of acupuncture is pain relief. Various studies have shown that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic pain, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Acupuncture has also been shown to be an effective treatment for joint pain, such as knee pain and arthritis.

Each treatment involves the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles into specific areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, feet, and legs to affect changes in the face as well as the whole body. On your first visit, we discuss your overall health history, including any physical, mental or emotional issues in your life that you feel you want to work on. We will evaluate what changes you would like to see in your face and skin as well as discuss your overall health goals, and then begin your treatment. Ultra fine needles are inserted while you are relaxing and lying down on a comfortable massage table. Once the needles are in place, you rest for 20-30 minutes. Facial acupuncture treatments are not limited to just acupuncture. They quite often include massage, jade roller and/or derma rollers, application of select herbal washes/toners/moisturizers appropriate for your skin type and tone, and end with a mask application if requested. In general, the treatments are very relaxing and take anywhere from 75-90 minutes.​
