At Omni Wellness Center, we're here to help you heal--and we want you to feel as relaxed and as welcome as possible! That's why our entire team takes the time to get to know you and offer you the best of what we have to offer when it comes to chiropractic care. One of the many services we're proud to offer is acupuncture therapy--a natural method to healing rapidly growing in popularity.
Acupuncture has been used for hundreds of years in traditional Eastern medicine--and more recently in Western culture--as a natural method to healing. During an acupuncture session, a chiropractor or other licensed health care professional inserts small sterile needles into specific areas on a person's skin. Typically, these needle insertion sites are on or around areas of injury or dysfunction. Alternatively, insertion sites can also be the location of certain "trigger points." The stimulation of these trigger points elicits a widespread biochemical and physiological healing process within the body.
As a therapeutic technique, acupuncture is effective, safe, and affordable. Most people report little to no discomfort during a session, and noticeable results within a few days, if not immediately! The number of sessions you'll need to truly benefit from the healing effects of acupuncture will depend on several unique factors, of course, including your age, type and severity of injury, and overall health.
Acupuncture is so effective as a natural healing method because instead of just treating the symptoms of dysfunction, it actually can address and resolve the underlying causes. The main benefits of acupuncture include:
Acupuncture has been shown work even better when provided along with other holistic "whole body" approaches to care, including chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercise prescription, nutritional counseling, and cold laser therapy.
Acupuncture has been used to treat a wide range of physical, neurological, and even psychological disorders, including:
...and more! Research and anecdotal evidence even shows that acupuncture can even promote weight loss by stimulating your metabolism and revitalizing your digestive system!
