Acupuncture Treatment Can Enhance Well-Being in Freehold, NJ
Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture treatment can provide much more than pain relief. This comprehensive wellness discipline, which is skillfully practiced at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Freehold, NJ, focuses on restoring energy imbalances within the body. Based on traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is often used alongside conventional methods to help patients achieve optimum health and wellness.
Acupuncture treatment draws on a belief that energy (Chi) constantly circulates throughout the body, and that the free flow of Chi along pathways to specific organ systems (meridians) can lead to good health. Conversely, the disruption of Chi can result in injury, illness or pain. The goal of acupuncture is to balance the flow of Chi and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal.
Here’s what you can expect during an acupuncture treatment session at our state-of-the-art health and wellness center in Freehold, New Jersey:
- You’ll be asked to lie comfortably on a padded table while soothing music plays in the background.
- A practitioner will place a series of hair-thin needles into targeted areas of your skin (the number of needles used and the amount of time they are left in place will depend on the specific goal of your treatment).
- While in place, the needles may be warmed, rotated, or electrically energized to intensify their healing effects.
- Your practitioner will explain how you can use your fingers to apply pressure in certain areas (acupressure) to further the benefits of your acupuncture treatment at home.
Many acupuncture points are situated near nerves. When stimulated, the nerve sends a message along its pathway to the brain. In response, the brain releases natural “feel good” hormones (endorphins) that can alter or disrupt the delivery of pain messages. As such, acupuncture treatment can make a patient feel better both physically and emotionally.
