We help people get out of pain so that they can remain fit, healthy and mobile without medications, injections or surgeries.

Acupuncture For Pain Management

If you are sick of dealing with chronic pain, want to get off medication, suffer from allergies, or are tired of feeling stressed and exhausted, acupuncture treatments could help. Acupuncture is a form of healthcare practiced worldwide to reduce pain and heal muscles, tissues, organs, circulation, and more.

Our acupuncture services are performed by our team of skilled, licensed acupuncturists and involve inserting small fine needles into specific areas throughout the body. We help the body heal itself by tapping into particular energy centers and pathways. Acupuncture also incorporates heat and pressure to restore balance in the body and the spirit.

Rather than use medications and painkillers, acupuncture helps your body heal itself naturally.

How Our Treatment Works

Our acupuncture services have scientifically been found to stimulate nerves in the body, igniting and regulating the nervous system and certain crucial areas of the brain. The needle’s insertion causes a small incision and signals your body to respond, shifting your body’s attention to a specific location, and increasing the blood flow.

Our treatments will improve your body’s ability to produce chemicals that reduce inflammation and stress naturally. It improves your circulation to the impacted site and stimulates your immune system. They are also relaxing and rejuvenating.

Acupuncture is often seen as a “miracle” practice by many because of its success rates and its wide range of treatments. Additionally, it is safe for most people to use. However, if you have a pacemaker, are pregnant, have a high risk of infection, or are on certain medications, it may not be recommended. We will discuss your current health conditions and review your options before beginning acupuncture.

FAQs on Active Rehabilitation

Here are some frequently asked questions that might help you decide if acupuncture is for you.

Acupuncture is minimally invasive since it does require the insertion of tiny needles into the skin. Most people, however, report feeling very little or no discomfort. It is usually an enjoyable experience that people look forward to, and many people even fall asleep during the treatment.

Before you begin anything, your practitioner will discuss your health history and what you hope to get out of your session. We will perform some general physical examinations to check your health. We will then work with you to develop a plan specific to your condition.

Your practitioner will then allow you to relax on a table or bed and place needles on the acupoints that correlate with your specific ailments. The needles are typically left in your skin between 5 and 30 minutes. Patients leave feeling relaxed and de-stressed.

The quickness and strength of positive results vary from person to person. It depends entirely on what area you are addressing, how severe your pain or problem is, how your body responds to the needles, and your overall general health.

Many of our patients see results with just a few sessions, especially for acute problems. Chronic and long-term ailments may take multiple treatments for a few months before people start to feel the results. However, the majority of patients see results after a few sessions, and some report seeing positive change immediately.

Acupuncture is a very safe practice and is very hard to overuse. If you have a severe or excruciating ailment, then getting treated every day may be the best option for you.

However, with most patients, that is not necessary and is simply overkill. To get the most out of your sessions, you want to space them out according to your practitioner’s recommendations and leave time in between each session for your body to reap the benefits.
