Acupuncture can be very beneficial to the body’s innate ability to function properly.
Just as chiropractic care aims to balance the bone, muscles, and nerves, acupuncture works on balancing the body’s energetics. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help resolve pain, improve sleep, digestive functions and a sense of well-being. It has also been shown effective to work with addiction therapy. Acupuncture improves the body’s function and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites commonly referred to as acupuncture points.
- Reduces stress
- Relieves tension
- Relief from headaches
- Improved immune function
- Enhanced mental clarity
- Improved energy
Restore energy balance to your body with acupuncture.
A cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture involves inserting extremely thin needles at various points throughout the body to treat pain, reduce stress, and enhance overall wellness. This technique is believed to balance energy throughout the body along specific meridians. From a scientific standpoint, stimulating certain nerves, muscles, and muscle tissue with these tiny needles has been shown to boost the body’s natural painkillers.
At Advanced Chiropractic Center, we go one step beyond to combine acupuncture with functional neurology through additional training that looks at the specific effect that certain acupuncture points have on certain areas of the brain. Thereby we can use acupuncture as a way to help certain neurological conditions and/or to enhance overall brain health!
If you struggle with chronic pain or simply want to boost your overall wellness, acupuncture can become a valuable part of your treatment plan. At Advanced Chiropractic Center, we often recommend acupuncture as a complementary treatment option along with chiropractic care. No special preparation is needed for the process, and you may notice a positive difference in the way you feel as soon as your session concludes.
To figure out the best type of acupuncture treatment for your situation, we will ask you about your symptoms, lifestyle, and behaviors. We may also examine:
- The parts of your body in which you are experiencing pain
- The coloring in your face
- The rhythm, quality, and strength of the pulse in your wrist
This initial evaluation also allows us to determine the number of acupuncture treatments you need and create an individualized treatment plan.
Acupuncture has very few and limited side effects, so it is worth a try if you struggle to control pain using more traditional methods. For additional information about acupuncture or the services we offer patients in the Asheville, North Carolina area, contact us today!
