Acupuncture

Acupuncture works by balancing the yin and yang, the two opposing but complementary forces in the body. When these forces are unbalanced, the Qi, or the life force, is stagnant, leading to illness or pain. Inserting very thin needles into key energy channels along the body balances Qi and restores its harmony.

Acupuncture can effectively treat a wide range of ailments and conditions, from chronic pain and allergies to hypertension and diabetes.

ACUPUNCTURE FACTS

Training & Education
Over 65 acupuncture schools and colleges in the U.S. exist and require training programs that range from 3-4 years, including an internship.

Incarceration
20 states carry over 800 drug dependency programs that include acupuncture. Patients who go through these programs have lower re-arrest rates on drug related charges.

Referral Rates
In a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 51% of medical doctors understand the efficacy and value of acupuncture and refer patients to acupuncturists.

Military & War Zones
The U.S. military was introduced to acupuncture during the Vietnam War, when local physicians were allowed to administer acupuncture to Vietnamese patients at a U.S. Army surgical hospital.

Most recently, Col. Richard Niemtzow, an Air Force physician began a program in 2001 termed “battlefield acupuncture.” Air Force, Navy, and Army doctors are taking acupuncture to the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan as part of emergency care in combat and in frontline hospitals.

Questions and Answers

Is Acupuncture Safe?
Yes! It has been used for well over 5000 years to help billions of people. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved acupuncture needles for use by licensed practitioners in 1996 and requires that acupuncturists follow strict safety guidelines: only sterile, nontoxic needles that are labeled for Single Use Only.

Do Acupuncture Needles Hurt?
You can fit close to 10 acupuncture needles inside the tip of one hypodermic needle. Once the needles are inserted, some patients may experience a mild tingling or a sensation of fullness, along with an increased sense of relaxation–no discomfort. Over 80% of patients fall asleep during treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Each patient is different. The initial phase of the treatment plan is usually between 4-10 visits. The length of treatment depends on how long the condition has been present and how quickly the patient responds to treatment. Generally, patients with more acute conditions respond faster than those with chronic conditions.
