A lot of people have heard about Chinese medicine, but haven’t gotten around to trying it out. Acupuncture is a very popular form of Chinse medicine, and it can provide relief from headaches, digestion problems and knee pain.
Although acupuncture can work well for these basic problems, it can be used to treat a variety of other conditions. Most people don’t realize that there is a connection between their physical and emotional symptoms. Acupuncture is based on a belief that the mind and body are connected.
Many patients receive this treatment for stress, but they might also be dealing with physical pain. For over 2,000 years, acupuncture has been used to relieve unwanted pain. In fact, it’s one of the oldest treatments for pain relief.

Common Conditions Treated
A variety of different conditions can be treated with acupuncture; it’s regularly used to provide relief from anxiety, depression, allergies, chronic pain, arthritis and gastrointestinal distress. Although it can be very effective for these conditions, it can treat many other problems.
Since the treatment involves the use of needles and pressure, it’s natural to assume that it would be highly uncomfortable. However, the needles used during the treatment are incredibly thin; they’re not much thicker than a strand of hair. Most people don’t even feel them as they’re inserted. The reality is that during the treatment, most patients feel very relaxed.
How Does It Work?
Before you can be treated with acupuncture, we’ll need to thoroughly evaluate your overall health. After we make sure you’re a good candidate, you can plan a treatment session.
The exact placement of the needles depends on the condition you’re seeking treatment for. Acupuncture is thought to work by correcting energy imbalances within the body. According to Chinese medicine, imbalances in your body’s QI energy flow can cause chronic pain and other problems. The purpose of this treatment is to restore balance and deliver relief from pain.
