Acupuncture Treatment

Aupuncture has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. and Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. What does Acupuncture treat? When we ask such a question, most of us tend to be thinking Acupuncture as some kind of medical pills, and those pills treat certain type of illness. In fact, Acupuncture, as one important ingredient of traditional Chinese medicine therapy, its main focus is the root cause of the illness, and put the person’s specific illness within the framework of the person’s whole functionality. Different symptoms may have the same root cause and same symptom may have different root cause. By evaluate patient root imbalance, Acupuncturist can come up with tailored treatment program to address the root and the symptoms. That’s why many patients suprisely find out they come to Acupuncturist to treat one problem and other problems get fixed also. Acupuncture treat a wide range of medical conditions and it also used as a preventative medicine. Most common circumstances to take acupuncture treatment are:

  • General-Allergies, Asthma, Sinusitis, Headaches, Back Pain, Sciatica, Musculoskeletal Problems, Insomnia,  Anxiety, Dizziness, Depression, High Blood Pressure, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Addictions, Indigestion, Constipation, Sexual Dysfunction, Post-Operative Recovery
  • Women’s Health- Menstrual Irregularities, Menopause, Conception difficulties, Pregnancy, Childbirth, Lactation Difficulties, Postpartum, Ovarian and Uterine Problems
  • Men’s Health- Prostate, Infertility, Impotence
  • Pediatrics- Asthma, Cough, Digestive Problems, Behavioural Problems, Ear Infections, Sleep problems.
  • Preventative Health- Regular body “tune up”, Wellness, Beauty

One common perception is that acupuncture is mainly useful in the management of pain. That is unture but why people got that perception? That’s because most of the time pain related problems patients see the result faster and sooner, but for other chronic conditions the root problems are build up gradually and need longer time to be adjusted. Often after root imbalance diagnosis acupuncturist offer appropriate and meaningful lifestyle suggestions in addition to their acupuncture treatment. Why choose Acupuncture for treatment?

  • Natural approach. No medical taken. Pinpoint the root cause and imbalance, let your body do the magic.
  • Effectiveness. That’s the reason why Acupuncture exists for thousands of years and widely used around the world.
  • Preventative. When you feel something wrong but checkup shows everything is fine. That’s your body try to talk to you. Before the root imbalance accumulate to a definite clinical condition, experienced acupuncturist can help.

The tester is whether he/she well understands the philosophy of Yin and Yang and how well he/she masters traditional Chinese medicine besides Acupuncture skills. You already know the TCM is the foundation for all these therapeutic tools.
