Acupuncture In The Villages?
Have you heard of acupuncture but aren’t sure exactly what is involved? You’re not alone. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about acupuncture and we’d like to clear a few things up.
- Acupuncture is painful – This seems to be based on a fear of needles. While that fear is real, the pain is not. The needles used are about the width of a strand of hair.
- Acupuncture doesn’t work – Acupuncture was helping people long before western medicine. It does not involve harmful chemicals and has been proven to provide relief to many symptoms.
- Acupuncture is expensive – Acupuncture is becoming recognized by more and more healthcare professionals and insurance companies are starting to see the benefits of including it in their plans.
- Acupuncture is addictive – Although some patients will need a few sessions to gain the maximum benefits of acupuncture, it is not addictive. Quite oppositely, acupuncture can often help curb other addictions like smoking or alcohol
