Top Three Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture has long been used for healing and wellness in Asia, and its increased popularity in the West has allowed its benefits to flow into America. At Lifetime Health and Wellness, we embrace and offer the healing technique as one of our many natural, holistic services. Each Westminster chiropractor at our clinic is a certified acupuncturist, a designation that requires several years of extensive study and a hands-on internship using the healing technique. Our chiropractors Dr. Randy B. Snyder, Dr. Kevin R. Bates, and Dr. Corrie Pillon have joined the estimated 8,000 acupuncturists in the U.S. to help bring the ancient technique to modern America.
Natural Relief from Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain
1. Relief from shoulder, back and neck pain without the use of medication is one of the top benefits of acupuncture treatments. The technique involves the gentle insertion of needles at key points along the body. These key points can be where pain is directly felt or otherwise connected to the painful areas. Rather than masking pain through the use of potentially addictive drugs, the technique relies instead on opening blocked channels of energy to alleviate discomfort and help heal the source of the pain.
2. Another top benefit of treatments from our Westminster acupuncturists is being a viable alternative to surgery for painful conditions. Unlike surgery, treatments do not require a hospital stay, anesthesia, or complicated procedures. The technique comes with few or no side effects and does not require a lengthy healing process.
3. Restoring the body's balance and proper energy flow is one more major benefit of our treatments. Rather than focusing on only the symptoms of an ailment or disease, our acupuncturists instead determine the origins of a disorder and bring the body back into balance as a means of eliminating it. Such a restoration of balance can help alleviate stress and fatigue, soothe and correct chronic conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and provide healing and pain relief following a sports, personal or car accident injury.
