Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that uses tiny needles at key points to balance the flow of energy throughout the body to facilitate healing and pain relief.
Acupuncture is a type of traditional Chinese medicine and has been around for more than 3000 years. The belief associated with the treatment is that physical ailments and discomfort stems from a blockage in the flow of energy or qi (pronounced "chee"). At our clinic, we use acupuncture to complement other treatment solutions. It works great with chiropractic care to address the underlying complications with your physical health and well being. We may use acupuncture to treat a variety of ailments that range from muscle pain to pinched nerves to internal health. Each treatment plan is made based on your situation and needs.
When receiving an acupuncture treatment from one of our certified acupuncturist, there are little to no risks. We use disposable, sterilized acupuncture needles to alleviate the risk of infection. We also comply with state regulations for needle disposal.
The number of treatments you will need for positive results will depend on your chief complaint and other health conditions. Some injuries and health conditions show changes after the initial visit, while others may take more visits. We will recommend a treatment plan after evaluating your needs and goals.
Treating your symptoms and health concerns with a traditional solution helps you recover and heal without side effects and harsh medications. To learn more about the natural solutions we offer, please call Althoff Wellness Clinic at 970-686-6833.
