FAQ of Acupuncture
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese therapy that has been around for thousands of years. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific sites on the body to promote balance and healing. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the endocrine and nervous systems, and works by regulating the nervous system. Acupuncture promotes the activity of pain-killing chemicals in the body, including endorphins and immune system cells. Acupuncture has been found to reduce pain, balance emotions, boost immunity, reduce stress, and help support the body’s natural healing abilities.
IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE?
The Safety Record of acupuncture is limited to few complications, with minor adverse events such as local bruising being reported in roughly 0.1% of the millions of people treated each year, or about 1 in 1000 acupuncture treatments.
WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE TREAT:
Acupuncture research has shown a lot of promise regarding the efficacy of acupuncture for helping with many health issues, including:
Low Back Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Postoperative Dental Pain
Postoperative & Chemotherapy Nausea & Vomiting
Additionally, acupuncture may improve digestion, promote weight management, can lead to better sleep, and may help with stress, depression, anxiety, energy, and mood.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY FIRST VISIT?
During your first Winter Park acupuncture treatment your practitioner will ask you questions to get a clear understanding of your health conditions, goals, and concerns.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of acupuncture treatments a patient will need can vary depending on the person as well as the issues being targeted. Some people experience immediate relief, while others may take multiple treatments. In general, chronic conditions typically require longer treatment than acute ones. Your Winter Park acupuncturist will be able to better assess the amount of treatments you need after your initial acupuncture consultation.
WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE FEEL LIKE?
The needles used in acupuncture treatment are MUCH smaller than typical needles - they are tiny, and hair-thin. Although people experience acupuncture differently, most feel little to no pain during insertion of the needles. Furthermore, some people describe feeling energized by their acupuncture treatment, while others report feeling relaxed.
