Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about acupuncture.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a natural, and very precise technique of using fine needles on different parts of the body. The needles dilate blood vessels, bring in an influx of healing elements to the affected area, and help nourish and restore peripheral nerves.

Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago and has recently become a respected form of therapy in the United States. It is based on the pathways of Qi (pronounced “chee”), a type of energy that travels through the body. Each pathway that Qi takes corresponds to different organs, and acupuncture aims to balance a person’s Qi for maximum health and wellness.

What ailments can acupuncture treat?

These are just a few common ailments that can be treated through acupuncture: back pain, knee pain, sciatica, allergies, asthma, post-operative recovery, sinus issues, headaches, stress management, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, painful joints, fibromyalgia, and many more.

What makes acupuncture different from other treatments?

Acupuncture is a unique and effective form of treatment for so many ailments because the effects of acupuncture generally cannot be recreated by other forms of medicine. It is able to alter the internal body environment. Many people favor acupuncture because there are no side effects.

Isn’t it uncomfortable to have a bunch of needles stuck in your body?

People do tend to be nervous about this, but even our most apprehensive or skeptical patients who have tried acupuncture in our Shrewsbury and Wall offices now swear by it for pain relief and relaxation. This form of treatment tends to be a very positive experience for our patients, as it encourages calmness, relieves pain and ailments, and improves overall physical and emotional well-being.

How else can I benefit from acupuncture?

Since acupuncture is all about achieving proper energy balance, patients leave feeling at peace, stress-free, and pain-free. Acupuncture regulates neurotransmitters in the brain which can greatly improve mood – which is why acupuncture has even been known to treat depression. These neurotransmitters can also help you sleep better. It can decrease stress, boost your immune system, and help with so many different chronic issues.
