Acupuncture and Associated Modalities
Over the past 3,500+ years the theories and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine have constantly evolved to address new challenges to health and wellbeing while continuously retaining the original foundations that define this classic system of medicine. It wasn’t until the last few decades that acupuncture began to find acceptance in the U.S. but it has now been recognized by both the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health as a safe and effective treatment for many common ailments including neuromusculoskeletal conditions, emotional and psychological disorders, circulatory disorders, addictions, respiratory disorders, and gastrointestinal conditions. An acupuncturist may utilize several modalities to achieve the greatest healing effect for a patient including acupuncture, cupping, ear seeds, and massage as well as complementary therapies such as kinesio taping and heat. With a properly trained and experienced acupuncturist your treatment and experience should be relaxing and comfortable while maximizing therapeutic benefits to assist you on your path to recovery.
