ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a primary treatment method of Traditional Chinese Medicine which is based on the principles and of the meridian system of the human body as well as the natural laws of the universe which govern our existence on earth.

Chinese medicine is a complete healing system that can treat all conditions of the human body.

How acupuncture works

In acupuncture, we use very fine medical grade needles and insert them into predefined energetic points in the body to open the network of energy channels that run through the body, facilitate the free flow circulation of energy and blood to remove obstructions or blockages, rectify imbalances by guiding the energy to where it needs to go, and ultimately restore the entire system back to a healthy balance and efficient functioning.

 

The human body is an intricate network of invisible energy pathways (or meridians) which comprises of 72,000 energy centers according to the Vedic science. Chinese medicine recognizes 14 major energy channels in the human body that bear significant importance and over 1,000 identified energetic points. If you visualize the highway and road system in any major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston which facilitates transportation and movement throughout the entire city, you will have an idea of how your body's energy system looks and functions.

 
Once the imbalances and affected channels are identified, a group of acupuncture points relevant to the condition(s) are chosen to properly rectify the problems. On average, a group of 12 -16 points are used for a standard acupuncture session and they may locate on the head, face, ears, trunk, arms, legs, hands, feet, front, back, or sides of the body. Each needle is then inserted into a single point. Once inserted, needles are retained in the body for 30 minutes or longer depending on the condition being treated. During this span of time the needles facilitate one complete cycle of energy circulation throughout the entire body.

Does acupuncture hurt?

This is probably the most commonly asked question about acupuncture, however there is no standard answer because every person has different pain threshold and response. Generally, acupuncture is tolerable. Some points are more sensitive than others depending on the areas of the body. Most needles are inserted without causing any discomfort to our patients. Any uncomfortable sensation would be felt only at the initial insertion of needle and goes away after a few seconds. Once all needles are inserted, the rest of the treatment is absolutely comfortable and relaxing. With repeated treatments, most patients grow accustomed to the needle sensation and their initial anxiety also dissipates. Rest assured that you're not alone in this process. Our acupuncturist is ready to coach and assist you should any discomfort arise.

When can you expect to see improvement

Everyone responds differently to a treatment depending on the nature and severity of the condition being treated, other pre-existing conditions that can have bearing on the recuperative power of the individual, and patient's compliance to the treatment regimen. Based on our experience, the majority of patients feel improvement within the week of the first treatment. The acupuncture effects are cumulative, therefore the likelihood of increasing improvement is expected as patient stays firmly through the course of treatment.
