What causes the problem?


People often have pain and suffering because they have additional undiagnosed problems causing the pain. Many times, this includes common ailments such as back pain, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, or pain elsewhere in the body. Five basic organs control different systems that affect the entire body, including people’s emotions. Imbalances like tension, anxiety, grief, fear, worry, anger, depression and negative thoughts (energy) can lessen the Chi and blood flow. Besides this, Chi and blood flow can be negatively impacted by toxins including food, drug, chemical, metal, and environmental poisons, electromagnetic radiation, other poisons, viruses, infections, etc.

This can cause a major disconnect within the systems and the entire body. For example, if any internal organ has dysfunction, degeneration or weakness, this obstructs the heart from normal circulation. Any part of the body that does not receive enough of the blood with the Chi energy will manifest as pain or illness. Other problems most people are not familiar with can occur because of blood flow problems, deficiencies, wrong sitting/sleeping positions or any injury. We are able to assist you from the mind, body, and spirit perspective.

Focusing on the Root Cause of the Problem

Many doctors just treat symptoms and pain with harmful medications or unnecessary surgeries. We do not take that approach. Most patients want to be relieved from their symptoms but do not think about the root cause that creates other illnesses/problems during the course of their life. Instead, they try to save time and money on their treatment which is temporary and can cause more health issues later on. Our approach involves finding and treating the root cause of your health problems, which saves you time, energy, and money. As a result, you become happier, healthier, and much more peaceful.

Things such as high tension levels can cause high blood pressure, headaches, other illnesses and the
side effects from medications can slow down the blood circulation to the entire body, including the head, limbs and internal organs. Conditions that are left untreated can gradually cause poor circulation, making the body weak and imbalanced and overall health worse over time.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing system that originated in China 3000 years ago. Acupuncture originated with the discovery that specific areas of the skin directly correlated to the organs of the body. In time, the connection between the skin and the organs became further understood and more exact ways of stimulation were formulated. It is a technique used to promote the body's natural way of healing. In order for this to occur, needles, heat, or electrical stimulation are used on certain acupuncture points.

Did you know that in the 20th century, acupuncture and Chinese medicine served more than 2 billion people in Asia, the former Soviet Union, and Europe? Acupuncture can help where other forms of treatment have failed and the best part is that there are no side effects.

Acupuncture treatment is considered a safe, effective and natural treatment and used by millions of Americans in the USA. Due to its effectiveness, many insurance companies have included acupuncture treatment in their acceptable treatment list. Acupuncture treatment has shown amazing results relating to Skin Conditions, Psychological Conditions, Sensory Disorders, Respiratory/Cardiovascular Conditions, Neurological and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Autoimmune Diseases, Hormonal Imbalance, and Digestive Conditions.

If you’re suffering from any of the conditions listed above, you must try an acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture treatment starts with general questions with patients to gather vital information about their health conditions and medical history. Once we are satisfied with the questionnaires, we will find the Qi points or acupuncture points to stimulate the flow of energy or blood. After this, we will initiate the actual acupuncture treatment by inserting needles in those acupoints. Needles used in the treatment are made of silver and gold.

Why Does Acupuncture Work?

The body’s energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive and all other systems in the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, it can alter the entire system, producing pain or symptoms in the body. Acupuncture’s goal is to stimulate one or a combination of key “Acupoints” on the body to restore harmony to the affected area.

Is Acupuncture Painful?

There are many ways to stimulate an acupuncture pressure point – needles, electrical stimulation, cold laser beam or pressure massage, singularly or in combination. Does it hurt, you ask? Four acupuncture needles could easily fit into one hypodermic needle. Because of the extreme slenderness, most people compare the sensation as “less than a mosquito bite”.

How Will It Make Me Feel?

Acupuncture is based upon the belief that there is a need for balance in the flow of energy in the body. The energy we are referring to is 1) Chi, 2) blood, and 3) electrical energy in the nervous system. Acupuncture increases the production of endorphins, which relaxes the body and reduces the level of pain. It also increases the circulation of blood, sending nutrition via the small blood vessels to all parts of the body. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain relievers that have an analgesic, antidepressant and anti-allergenic effect. It relieves pain and gives a sense of euphoria.

Is It Necessary to Stop Other Medications?

No. You should continue to follow your current physician’s instructions. Acupuncture can be used to complement and supplement a physician’s treatments.

Is Acupuncture Covered Under Health Insurance?
