What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine that has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of illnesses and disorders. It works by stimulating the body’s natural healing response with tiny, thin needles inserted into specific areas known as acupoints, located along meridian pathways.

Proponents of acupuncture believe that when energy gets blocked or out of balance, people experience health problems. The stimulation helps open the blockages and restore any imbalances in the body’s energy. A combination of needles, massage, herbs and other therapies can be used to optimize results.

What Ailments Can Acupuncture Help?

Our Back to Wellness team believe in taking a holistic approach to your health.

Acupuncture can promote relaxation and help balance the body’s energy flow while easing symptoms such as inflammation, tension, and stress. The therapy has also been used to help address psychiatric issues like anxiety and depression. It can boost the immune system and provide relief to those dealing with insomnia or digestive problems. Additional areas where acupuncture treatment is of great use include:

This traditional method is an invaluable tool for many people. When practiced by a licensed professional, it can be an effective method of finding relief from many ailments.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Apart from the many uses as mentioned above, it’s also known to balance hormones and improve overall energy levels. With all its healing potential, acupuncture is an effective treatment that should be considered by anyone looking for a way to access natural health solutions for their body and mind.

Acupuncture and Cupping

Cupping therapy is a wonderful complement to acupuncture treatment. During cupping therapy, small glass cups are placed on the skin to create suction. This suction promotes increased blood flow, stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and helps alleviate pain and discomfort. Acupuncture and cupping, when combined, provide increased blood and energy flow, an added level of relaxation and stress relief, which can enhance the overall benefits of acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture Side Effects

While most people report no side effects, there are potential but easily-managed side effects associated with treatment. These include dizziness, itching or bruising at the site of insertion, and mild soreness in the muscles or joints due to stimulation from the needles. It is important to remember that any treatment should be done by an experienced and licensed practitioner.

What to Expect During Your Acupuncture Studio City Session

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know if acupuncture is working?

The most common way to tell if it is working is by noticing a change in your symptoms. Patients may also feel a sentimental difference or even see physical changes, such as improved digestion and increased range of motion.

Is acupuncture painful?

It should not be painful. Most people feel a slight prick or pressure as the needles are inserted, but then the sensation fades away. If you do experience discomfort, please let your practitioner know immediately. We want to ensure that your session is comfortable and effective.

How long does acupuncture last?

A typical session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. After insertion, the needles are usually left in place for 15-30 minutes while your body relaxes and adjusts to the treatment. Depending on your individual needs, our licensed acupuncturist may recommend a series of treatments over a period of time.

Dry needling vs acupuncture, what’s the difference?

Dry needling is a technique used to release tight muscle bands. It involves inserting thin needles directly into the trigger point of the muscle, with no use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture, on the other hand, is rooted in TCM and incorporates the insertion of needles along specific points of the body.

How much does acupuncture cost?

The cost varies and is determined by where you go, the length of each session, and the number of sessions recommended to treat your condition.
