Acupuncture In The Villages

Acupuncture in The Villages is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back over 5,000 years.  It is based on the theory that energy (QI) moves through the body using specific pathways (meridians).  An imbalance in the flow Qi or energy moving through the meridians may cause a physiological effect in the body over time. Stress, poor eating habits, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalances, and strenuous activity may cause the body to become symptomatic.  Symptoms such as, pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, food cravings, irritability, brain fog, indigestion, and heart palpitations may occur if harmony is not restored to the Qi flow of the internal body.

Treatment

Acupuncture Physicians use sterile, thin, single use, disposable needles to activate specific points on the body to stimulate a healing function. A slight pinch, tingling, or burning sensation may occur at the site of the needle insertion for a brief moment.  A typical acupuncture treatment may last 20-30 minutes.  This time allows the body to relax and make internal changes.  Acupuncture causes the brain to release endorphins a natural opiate-like effect may occur.  The analgesic like effect is very helpful in the treatment of pain.  Also, a feeling of euphoria may occur after an acupuncture treatment due to the release of endorphins.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture to be effective for more than 35 common illnesses.
Allergies, sinusitis, abdominal pain, heart burn, constipation, IBS like symptoms, painful periods, PMS, low back pain, muscle, tendon, joint pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica, nerve injuries, addictions, and chronic pain.

Needles

Very small, single-use, sterilized needles are inserted into acupuncture and trigger points all over the body that help the body heal itself, balance the body’s energy, and release pain-relieving and pleasure-inducing neurotransmitters and hormones. There is little to no discomfort felt upon the insertion of needles. In fact, 10 acupuncture needles can fit in the hole of needles used to give shots.

Cupping

Cupping

Glass cups are suctioned to the skin with heat, providing the same effects of a deep tissue massage. It relaxes the muscles, draws toxins out of the body, can break up scar tissue, and can relieve colds more quickly.
