An acupuncturist can help promote your body’s natural healing processes and reduce inflammation and pain.
Most people understand the basic idea of acupuncture. You probably know that it involves thin needles being placed in certain places around your body. What you may not realize is that an acupuncturist has to complete extensive and specialized training to perform this treatment, and the needle placement is far from random.
While acupuncture has been practiced in certain parts of the world like China for centuries, there are modern scientific studies verifying its positive impact on your body. First, your acupuncturist will want to understand your personal goals for treatment. Perhaps you are seeking help with one of the conditions that can benefit from acupuncture treatment, including the following and more:
- High blood pressure
- Joint or muscle pain
- Migraines and other headaches
- Sleep issues and insomnia
- Menstrual issues or fertility challenges
- Sports injuries
- Anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges
At Active Integrative Medicine, we have a collaborative team of healthcare professionals who can support your journey toward optional health. Your acupuncturist can insert ultra-fine needles at precise points on your body to encourage natural healing. This needling stimulates a chemical release in your muscles, spinal cord, and even your brain to reduce inflammation and pain while stimulating your internal regulatory system.
