Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years. When performed by a licensed practitioner, acupuncture is:
Has very few side effects
Is very effective in controlling many types of pain
Activates the body's natural ability to heal
The goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of life-force energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), as it flows through the body along pathways called meridians. When there is interference or blockage in these pathways, it can result in imbalances that can cause pain, illness, or disease.
In fact, Chinese traditional medicine believes that any illness or disease is preceeded by a disturbance in the Qi and that keeping this energy balanced is a way to preserve proper bodily functions.
These blockages can be influenced by needling meridian points with acupuncture needles. Acupuncture treatments help restore the energy flow and bring the body back into proper balance.
Acupuncture also can helps balance the organs systems, such as the respiratory system, cardiac system, etc., to help them function properly and overcome pathology.
When most people think of needles, they often envision sewing or medical needles that are built to put a thread through them and bind cloth or skin together. Acupuncture needles are made for a different purpose and are quite different from these.
Acupuncture needles are very thin, with a very small, sharp point. They are inserted into the skin with the use of a small tube. The patient may feel a small prick as they enter the skin. The purpose of acupuncture needles is to stimulate certain acupuncture points in the body to stimulate a healing response.
The patient lies down on a comfortable, padded table and the doctor inserts the needles into the appropriate acupuncture areas, which may include the head, hand, or feet. If the areas for the needles to be inserted are commonly covered by clothing, the patient may be asked to remove some of their street clothes and wear a cloth gown.
At Chiropractor Plus in Nixa, acupuncture patients are treated in a private room. They will remain on the table for 15-20 minutes to benefit from the needle's stimulating effect. The doctor will check on them periodically. Most patients find acupuncture treatment to be very relaxing. Some patients fall asleep during their treatment!
Patients may feel another quick prick as needles are removed. the needles are so small that they do not leave a hole or any mark on the skin. As patients leave from their treatment they usually feel happy and energetic.
