What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine technique that promotes your body’s natural healing process. It is best known by the placement of thin, sterile needles in acupuncture points. If needles are used, they are always single use, sterile needles. There are many types of treatments that do not use needles, however. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
How Long Does Acupuncture Take to Work?
The time it takes to feel the effects varies, but it usually takes at least 24 hours after a session. For acute, or minor issues, a few sessions will be enough. For more complicated or severe conditions or injuries, it can take up to a few months of regular sessions to reach full improvement.
How Do Acupuncture Treatments Work?
A patient’s signs and symptoms as well as their unique constitution determine which acupuncture points to use. Symptoms that are described to the acupuncturist during a consultation determine what areas of the body have weak or blocked qi, or living energy. These areas are stimulated to allow for the qi to flow through the body properly.
Many symptoms can be a result of inflammation, which acupuncture treatments can drastically reduce. Acupuncture also stimulates the release of endorphins, your body’s natural feel good chemical. This has a natural self-regulating effect on the bodies systems and can help with your mood, overall energy and restore your sense of wellness.
