Traditional Chinese medicine describes acupuncture as a technique that balances the flow of energy known as qi or chi (CHEE) to all of your pathways or meridians in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along your meridians, acupuncturists believe that your energy flow rebalances and heals you naturally. Many Western medicine practitioners view acupuncture points as places to stimulate muscles, nerves and connective tissue. Some even believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and actually increases overall blood flow.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into your skin at the meridian points of your body. A key component of acupuncture is usually to treat pain. At Premier Medical we want to use this ancient Eastern wisdom to treat your pain! Acupuncture is over 4000 years old and has thousands of scientific studies that show acupuncture can be effective in treating pain and other ailments. At Premier Medical we want to use this old wisdom to help you and relieve your pain and discomfort so call us today to schedule your first consultation!
By inserting these thin needles into your meridians, pain and tension may feel like it is sliding away. On occasion, our medically trained acupuncture practitioners will add a small electrical or heat stimulation to the patient’s meridians to further enhance the reparative powers of this treatment.
Acupuncture has been shown to significantly reduce effects of back and joint pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and more. Patients have also expressed that acupuncture restores their balance in their mind/body and positively influences their mind’s perception of pain. Our non-invasive treatment sessions last only 30 minutes, and can help stimulate your body’s natural healing response by balancing all of your energy flow.
Once you understand acupuncture can help you live a more pain-free life, you should soon see that acupuncture sessions can benefit your overall health. At Premier Medical your first acupuncture appointment will start off by one of our trained professionals discussing your treatment plan based off of the latest acupuncture techniques. Then, our acupuncturist will use sterile and disposable needles and expertly place them just below the skin into one of your body’s 350 pressure points to provide you with the maximum pain relief you’re looking for. For 30 very relaxing minutes, the needles will remain in place as your body is stimulated to release its own natural painkillers and begin the restorative process.
Patients at our facility often report little to no pain during the entire process and instead they report feeling the subtle movements of energy in their body as it responds to this ancient healing technique. After the session is complete, your acupuncturist will remove the needles carefully and dispose of them.
If you have been struggling with pain and tried other treatment options but they just weren’t effective, consider making a consultation for an acupuncture session at Premier Medical.
