Acupuncture & Acupressure
Acupuncture and acupressure are two alternative medicine techniques for naturally managing pain and enhancing whole body health. Dr. Randy Snyder has been freeing patients from pain for over two decades. Acupuncture is effective for managing back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, whiplash injuries, sports injuries and other personal injuries. It is also an effective treatment technique for numerous other conditions, including digestive disorders, stress & anxiety, depression, muscle soreness after injury, and allergies. We also offer treatments to support natural weight loss and help patients break unhealthy habits, like smoking.
According to the principles of traditional acupuncture, a blockage in the body’s life force (the “qi”) can trigger pain, illness, and injury. Qi naturally flows through the body along different energy pathways known as meridians. To correct a blockage, acupuncture involves inserting thin needles at specific pressure points along the body. These pressure points correspond with different health problems that a patient may be experiencing.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment technique for pain management, as well as other health problems. Inserting needles into the body at specific points helps to stimulate the central nervous system, producing important physiological changes within the body. At our practice, we follow strict safety protocols and use only thin, sterile needles. The insertion of the needles is virtually pain-free.
In addition to offering acupuncture for pain relief, our acupuncture services can enhance all aspects of your well-being. From managing seasonal allergies and relieving stress to supporting weight loss and relieving digestive disorders, our acupuncture treatments can make a significant difference for your health without the need for medication.
Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that is similar to acupuncture, although this technique does not use needles. Rather than inserting needles as specific pressure points along the body, acupressure relies on the application of physical pressure to activate these points. For example, if you are suffering from nausea, activating pressure points along the wrist can help relieve this sensation. Points along the ear, scalp, hands, and feet are commonly utilized during treatment. For individuals who are uncomfortable with needles, acupressure is an effective alternative that offers many of the same health benefits.
Our wellness team is proud to offer acupuncture and acupressure as a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments. By proactively addressing the underlying cause for illness and pain, we bring balance back to the body. We believe this approach to health care is more effective than solely treating the symptoms of disease. Our goal is to prevent disease from occurring in the first place.
Individuals looking for acupuncture choose our practice because of our depth of experience, commitment to high-quality care, and decades of success treating patients. Whether you suffer from chronic pain or another health condition, acupuncture and acupressure treatments can make a significant difference for your well-being.
