What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a drug-free treatment option that offers a wide range of benefits. It is a low-risk procedure with minimal side effects or risk of complications. Acupuncture can be applied to different areas of the body, making it a versatile treatment option. This alternative therapy stimulates various systems throughout the body, reducing pain and promoting the body’s natural healing process.

How is acupuncture performed?

Acupuncture is a minimally invasive procedure that targets nerve-rich (pressure points) areas to improve bodily functions. First, you and your Healing Duo Integrative Family Medical Practice provider discuss your condition to determine if acupuncture is right for you. Based on your condition, physical health, and medical history, your practitioner determines the best areas to perform your treatment. You may need to lie on your back, front, or side.

The practitioner starts the procedure by inserting small needles into different areas of the body. These sterile needles may be heated or stimulated to enhance the treatment. Once inserted, the needles remain in place for five to 30 minutes. They cause minor injuries to the treatment area, triggering the body to respond. Acupuncture harnesses the body’s natural healing process to improve circulation and reduce inflammation, pain, and stress.
