Acupuncture is great for relieving pain, but that is not all it helps.
Acupuncture is also effective for:
- painful digestive problems
To learn more about how I help people with painful digestive problems such as IBS, colitis, Crohn’s, and painful gas and bloating read some of my articles here.
“A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.”
Are you suffering from chronic pain?
Do you have back pain from sitting too long?
Is your arthritis a constant source of aggravation?
Do you feel uncomfortable most of the day?
Most people seek out acupuncture due to body pain. In fact, I have to admit that as good as I am at taking care of my body, I still have spots that just won’t let up.
In my private practice, I offer both acupuncture and functional medicine. I work with people every day who have pain just like yours. Sometimes it is debilitating pain, and sometimes merely annoying. I have been successful in helping many patients get significantly better.
You, too, can get relief and get back to a more comfortable life with the help of acupuncture.
I love to hear my patients say,
“I thought this would never get better. I almost gave up hope.”
A brief history of acupuncture
Preceding recorded history, acupuncture seems to have started in the Stone Age with sharp objects and stones. It was used for things such as abscesses. Acupuncture was first used medically about 2,500 years ago. It was first used in the west in the 17th century. The United States had an introduction to Chinese medicine during President Nixon’s trip to China in 1972.
In 1995 the FDA classified acupuncture needles as medical instruments.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) acknowledged acupuncture as an effective treatment in 1997 stating that it can help with a wide range of conditions including pain that is often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, and migraines.
More than 40 states require certification training for acupuncture practice, and most states now require a national examination for licensing. There are over 40 accredited acupuncture schools in the United States.
Always ask an acupuncturist if they have a full acupuncture license. Some healthcare practitioners practice acupuncture without an acupuncture license, usually, this is called dry needling. Dry needling is not acupuncture and does not require an acupuncture license. Acupuncturists are required to do more than 3000 hours of study whereas dry needling requires only a few hundred hours of study.
