Acupuncture, or zhenjiu, as it is called in Chinese, is an ancient form of needle therapy which is gaining more and more popularity in the Western world for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
During a treatment, very thin, solid, hairlike needles are inserted at specific points on the body. In Chinese these points are called “neural nodes” (jie) and the stimulation of these nodes affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving properties. If you have pain that is lingering or is not being treated by other modalities, then acupuncture offers a time-tested, very reliable method of pain relief.
Distal Needle Acupuncture
The practitioners at the Acupuncture & Wellness Center specialize in a rarely-mastered style of acupuncture. This method is over 2,500 years old and is derived from the I Ching, one of the oldest books in the world. Distal Needling Acupuncture, or Balance Method Acupuncture, varies widely from the typical treatments one can receive in the United States, and the results are far more effective and sustainable.
Use of the Distal Needling technique produces instantaneous pain relief often describes as “turning off a light switch”, enabling our practitioners to instantly and effectively treat pain. This style of acupuncture also helps to create a treatment matrix for some of the more difficult conditions which are resistant to other types of treatment.
The acupuncture points used are in very specific places on the body. The points used are located on the scalp and ears, on the arms from the elbows to the fingers, and on the legs from the knees to the toes. Consequently, the patient can lay on their back face up and doesn’t need to remove any clothing. The treatments are efficient, comfortable and extremely effective.
