I’m sure you’ve heard about Acupuncture. As a healthcare method, it’s been around for 2500 years! Acupuncture has been used to aid in healing of a variety of conditions.. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends Acupuncture for over 40 health conditions, including anxiety, migraine, allergies, gastrointestinal conditions, nervous conditions, hormone imbalances, and musculoskeletal pain (to name a few).
Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the use of sharp, very thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body's energy flow into healthier patterns.
ELECTROACUPUNCTURE AMPS UP THE RESULTS
By using the same principles and pressure points as the traditional needling method, but adding a micro-current to the needle. The frequency of the current and the number of electrons that flow through the wire to the body are closely monitored and adjusted by your healthcare practitioner. The electro component enhances the function of that specific point and activates different types of regeneration in the body. It can also be used to stimulate and contract muscles, which in turn induces a reflex that causes them to relax. This releases muscle knots and tension.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After an in-depth consultation with your healthcare practitioner, a treatment plan will be created and discussed with you for your approval. Once you understand and agree to the treatment, the practitioner will use pinpoint (pun intended (wink)) precision and quickly and without pain for you, insert a very thin needle into the areas of your body that will have the greatest positive change in your condition. Once the needles are in, the stimulant will be attached (much like a car being boosted) and a micro-current will be delivered to the needles. You will be laying down for this treatment in a relaxing environment - some people even fall asleep. Your healthcare pro may leave the room or stay with you, depending on your specific needs. The treatment usually lasts for 20-30 minutes. After your treatment, take it easy. No heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for the remainder of the day. Drink plenty of water and get some rest. You may feel tired, and perhaps even a bit sore the next day depending on what was worked on. The end result though, is greater mobility and muscle function, swelling reduction, and an improvement in overall complaints!
