Acupuncture is one of the treatment approaches in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This treatment method is based off theory that blood and Qi (which is like energy) flows through the body in pathways called meridians. Often blood and/or Qi becomes depleted and/or there is a blockage in the meridians. When this happens, health issues can arise.
To help alleviate these health issues, acupuncturists insert small single-use needles in the body along these meridians. Doing so allows for blood and Qi to flow properly. During treatments, patients may experience warmth and tingling (sensations of acupuncture).
Cupping, gua sha, electroacupuncture and tuina massage are other treatment modalities that may be utilized with acupuncture treatments. They are often used to help with physical pain, muscle tension and/or promote relaxation.
Some conditions that R.Ac can help are: headaches, depression, anxiety, premenstrual syndrome, low back pain, shoulder and neck pain, knee pain, insomnia, constipation, etc. Acupuncture can also be recommended for a variety of medical conditions that may affect fertility.
