Acupuncture Treatment Can Promote Head-to-Toe Wellness in Monroe Township, NJ
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment that can potentially enhance your health from head to toe. The goal of this practice is to restore the free flow of energy (Chi) along pathways to specific organ systems (meridians) throughout the body. To help individuals in Monroe Township, NJ, achieve optimal health and wellness, the doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey have integrated acupuncture into their clinical practice.
In addition to enhancing physical health, a balanced Chi can promote mental and emotional well-being as well. The DOs at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Monroe Township may recommend acupuncture treatment to address:
- Musculoskeletal conditions
- Neck or back pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Digestive issues
Some people are hesitant to try acupuncture treatment simply because they are afraid of needles. While this is understandable, consider that acupuncture needles are so fine and thin (approximately the thickness of a strand of human hair) that many patients do not even feel their insertion. What’s more, many acupuncture points are located near nerves that transmit signals to the brain when stimulated. In response, the brain may release natural “feel good” hormones (endorphins), which can interfere with the delivery of pain messages. As such, acupuncture can help a patient feel better.
Most people also believe that the potential benefits of acupuncture far outweigh any tingly sensations they might experience during treatment. For enhanced comfort, we might recommend pairing acupuncture treatment with cupping or therapeutic massage, which can promote healing, increase blood circulation, and reduce inflammation.
