Acupuncture Services at Optimal Chiropractic


Acupuncture consists of placing ultra-thin needles on various points on the body to help re-direct the flow of blood and Qi (energy.) Pain and disease occur in areas where blood and energy get blocked and stagnate. When acupuncture points are stimulated, it helps to unblock these areas to restore health.

Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body by booming the patient’s immune system to achieve self-healing instead of drug.

Acupuncture has been in existence for over 2000 years. It consists of placing ultra-thin needles on various points on the body to help re-direct the flow of blood and Qi (energy.) Pain and disease occur in areas where blood and energy get blocked and stagnate. When acupuncture points are stimulated, it helps to unblock these areas to resolve pain, prevent disease, improve immune function, and restore the overall balance of the body.

To explain how acupuncture works in a modern western medical sense; acupuncture helps to stimulate the healing mechanism in the body. When an acupuncture needle is properly placed, it activates the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems. It activates the nervous system to release endorphins (a hormone produced in the brain that relieves pain and produces a feeling of well being or happiness,) norepinephrine (a hormone that is responsible for alertness, memory and concentration) and oxytocin (a hormone responsible for resting and feeling calm.) Acupuncture also releases pressure on joint structures and nerves which allows better circulatory flow and an overall help for the body to heal and detoxify. With all of these positive side effects, you can see why acupuncture can be beneficial for not just pain – but so many other different ailments as well.

Acupuncture can effectively treat conditions such as chronic or acute pain, sports and work related injuries, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, arthritis, headaches, stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia, PMS, digestive problems, thyroid disorders, and more.
