Acupuncture is an ancient form of medical healing that dates back thousands of years ago. It is often used in conjunction with chiropractic care and can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of different ailments. However, many people tend to shy away from the idea of trying acupuncture due to the involvement of needles. If you have been thinking about trying acupuncture for the first time in Greenacres, we have some important background information you should know about this therapy method.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture helps improve body function and promotes healing by stimulating specific points in the body known as acupuncture points. A very fine, sterile needle is inserted into these different acupuncture points to provide stimulation. Through this stimulation of your different systems, acupuncture helps relieve pain and improve overall well being and system function. Common conditions treated by acupuncture include neck and back pain, hypertension, chronic headaches, and more.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Much like chiropractic care, the number of acupuncture treatments needed varies from person to person. It is completely dependent on your body, as well as your preferences. Your acupuncturist will recommend a number of treatments based on the severity of your situation, however, you can ultimately decide how many treatments you want to receive. Chronic conditions may require more treatments to experience true relief while acute conditions may require fewer treatments.
