Acupuncture is a holistic, oriental medicine which treats the entire body system. Our Lake Mary Acupuncture has been documented to treat not only physical ailments, but has consistently proven to alleviate psychological and emotional problems such as stress, anxiety, addictions, phobias and obsessive behaviors.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture works by tapping into the body’s stream of energy, or what is known as its “qi”. When physical, emotional and psychological problems arise, the body’s qi or energy is interrupted. Acupuncture taps into 14 meridians along the body and removes the interruptions or unblocks the obstructions through the use of specialized needles. We offer many modalities in our Lake Mary office.
Research shows that this ancient therapy can be an effective treatment for a wide variety of ailments, from back pain and sciatica to headaches, nausea, and asthma. –Men’s Health
A professional acupuncturist assesses a patient’s health through in-depth consultation. Using both ancient and modern analysis, the acupuncturist then formulates a treatment protocol designed to target specific areas of pain. With meticulous attention to detail, an acupuncture regiment is begun. The course of treatment is based solely on that individual alone, as opposed to the one-size-fits-all therapies which dominate western medicine.
Why Acupuncture Works
Western scientists have long been baffled by the results produced by acupuncture. Studies have concluded time and again that the use of acupuncture does deliver on it promises, though the reasons are still largely unexplained. It is thought that acupuncture has a direct and pronounced effect on the human body. What’s more, acupuncture has been amply demonstrated to do more than stop physical pain.
Acupuncture can also reduce blood pressure, sinusitis, bronchitis, common cold, asthma, shorten recovery periods from injury and post-surgical convalescence. Moreover, acupuncture is preventative because it strengthens the immune system. Therefore, patients may not have to take medications to control pain or symptoms–benefits not available in most western medical practices.
Those undergoing acupuncture treatment have reported little or no discomfort but do attest to its effectiveness in preventing or curing their malady.
