Acupuncture provides a safe alternative for improving and maintaining health by using the body's energy rather than any medications or Western medical treatments. It has very few side effects, and once the body is in balance, treatments are often not required more than once a year.
Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with Western medicine, therefore overlapping and enhancing the effectiveness of each system of care. Whole Family Medical believes that this comprehensive approach is often the best means of sustaining health and curing ailments, and that acupuncture works best in the hands of an experienced medical doctor.
Acupuncture moves the body’s energy, or ‘qi’, through channels which may be blocked, causing the end result of pain. It also helps the body produce its own natural pain killers. Finally, evidence from functional MRI scans shows it actually changes the brain connections. Most patients start to see improvement after 3 to 5 sessions. Some old and chronic problems may require monthly treatments to maintain results. However, most patients improve after as few as 10 sessions and only return as needed to remind the body how to redirect the energy.
We use only sterile, single-use acupuncture needles.
