What is Acupuncture?
A holistic healthcare treatment, Acupuncture is a method of Chinese healing that originated thousands of years ago. According to Chinese medicine, several channels of energy flow through your body that can affect a group of organs, one organ or your general well-being. These energy channels are called meridians. Acupuncture uses the insertion of needles at specific meridians to manipulate the qi, (pronounced “chee”) which is energy. Only a professional and experienced Acupuncturist should administer treatment. As a registed acupuncturist, Willa views Traditional Chinese Medicine as the core of all treatment. Whether your treatment is solely based upon the various forms of Acupuncture, or it is combined with other treatments such as Herbal Medicine, massage or Cupping, your former health and vitality can be restored.
What are the benefits of Acupuncture?
Although normally associated with pain relief, acupuncture offers numerous benefits, all without the side effects associated with pharmaceutical treatments. Acupuncture is a form of natural, holistic healing can relieve many common health conditions and alleviate symptoms that have been unaffected by traditional medicine. Common women’s health issues such as infertility, menopause, fatigue or depression can be treated with several basic Acupuncture points. Other conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, and seasonal allergies are also achieving positive Acupuncture results. Acupuncture treatment can also improve and speed up recovery from illness, injury and surgery. Premenstrual and menopausal symptoms can be relieved through Acupuncture. Patients undergoing chemo or radiation therapies use acupuncture to reduce side effects. For healthy patients seeking acupuncture, the benefits of acupuncture treatment include a strengthened immune system and improved emotional balance. Acupuncture is a safe, effective and drug-free alternative to traditional medicines prescribed by your doctor.
