When it comes to wellness and pain relief, there are many methods for treatment. However, one technique that stands out the most is acupuncture. Here at Advanced Wellness Centre in Richmond, VA, our acupuncturist, Alistair Jones, L.Ac., can give you a great experience with this service and he can help your body heal naturally.
We understand that patients have questions about acupuncture, so we are answering some of them here in this article.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a type of integrated medicine that uses fine needles to help aid in the healing process. The overall goal of acupuncture is to channel the energy in your body by putting these fine needles in different points of your body. There are 400 points in 12 meridians throughout your body, and Alistair Jones, L.Ac., can help determine what points need energy flow to reach your health and wellness goals.
Is It Painful?
Acupuncture is not painful. In fact, most people fall asleep or enter a deep relaxation when receiving acupuncture treatment.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
Alistair Jones is a licensed acupuncturist and has years of experience in administering acupuncture. He makes sure that the treatment is safe, pain-free, and effective for each patient.
What Are The Benefits Of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture provides many benefits. Mainly, people seek acupuncture because it is surgery-free, drug-free, does not require much recovery time, and helps them heal the body from an injury or condition.
Acupuncture can also bring pain relief for many individuals. This therapy stimulates the energy flow within the body. As a result, you will experience all-natural endorphins that help reduce pain.
Along with pain relief, acupuncture can provide healing of the body. This is because acupuncture promotes blood flow and circulation throughout the body. With great circulation, the body can work to heal itself.
What Should I Expect At An Acupuncture Appointment?
For your first acupuncture session, you will receive a comprehensive exam. This exam is to diagnose any health conditions or injuries that may be affecting your overall well-being. From there, our acupuncturist will begin with treatment. He will place the very thin needles to areas that need to be treated. The needles will be left in for approximately 35 minutes, adjusting them from time to time. After your treatment, you should feel a bit better.
