Boca Raton Acupuncture
Boca Raton Acupuncture helps promote health and alleviates pain and suffering. The method by which this is accomplished, though it may seem strange and mysterious to many, has been time tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today.
The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness hinges on concepts of “vital energy,” “energetic balance” and “energetic imbalance.” Just as the Western medical doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages traveling via the nervous system, the acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of this “vital energy” within its pathways, known as “meridians and channels”.
The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along these “meridians”. Traditionally these areas or “acupoints” were stimulated by fine, slender needles. Today, many additional forms of stimulation are incorporated, including herbs, electricity, magnets and lasers. Still, the aim at Boca Raton Acupuncture remains the same – adjust the “vital energy” so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body heal itself.
Our Boca Raton Acupuncture treatments have had success with pain relief, quitting smoking, and eliminating anxiety and depression.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine. According to its theory, the body is broken down into twelve main meridians that regulate the body’s flow of energy. Irregularities in this circulation are what lead to pain and disease. By inserting acupuncture needles into specific locations, the acupuncturist thereby regulates circulation to promote health.
Acupuncture treatments last anywhere from 20 minutes to about an hour. The needles administered are very thin – eight times thinner than a typical medical syringe. Most patients describe acupuncture treatments as a quick, painless pinch and a relaxing experience. Research has shown that the body responds to acupuncture treatments by releasing endorphins that increase blood cell count and boost the immune system.
