Welcome to Beaumont Chiropractic for Acupuncture Services
Several people seek natural and holistic approaches to healthcare and ancient healing methods like acupuncture. As part of our commitment to holistic wellness at Beaumont Chiropractic Practice in Beaumont, TX, we offer acupuncture as a natural and effective treatment option. In this article, we’ll cover all you need to know about this traditional and holistic practice.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a time-honored healing practice with roots in China and is widely recognized and used globally. It involves the insertion of ultra-thin sterile needles into specific points on the body. These points, known as acupuncture points, are located on pathways believed to be interconnected to allow the flow of vital energy throughout the body. By stimulating these pathways, acupuncture restores the body's balance and energy flow.
According to traditional Chinese medical principles, imbalances or blockages in energy can lead to physical and emotional ailments. An acupuncturist aims to stimulate and regulate your energy by inserting needles into strategic acupoints, promoting the body's natural healing response. It is believed that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system, releases endorphins, encourages blood circulation, and triggers biochemical changes contributing to pain relief, relaxation, and well-being.
Conditions and Acupuncture Treatments
Some common conditions acupuncture can effectively treat include:
Acupuncture can help regulate and alleviate digestive disorders in multiple ways. To begin with, it can stimulate the release of neurotransmitters and hormones that influence digestion, enhance gastric motility, and reduce gastric acid secretion to improve intestinal muscle contraction and absorption of nutrients. Acupuncture can also relax the gastrointestinal tract to reduce inflammation and ease symptoms of abdominal conditions like acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome.
Acupuncture helps reduce inflammation and muscle tension, relieving chronic pain like neck, shoulder, and back pain. Our chiropractor can also use acupuncture to treat auto accident injuries and fasten sports recovery.
Headaches and Migraines
Acupuncture relaxes the muscles, improves blood circulation, and regulates the nervous system to reduce headaches and promote relaxation.
Stress and Anxiety
Acupuncture treatments have a calming effect on the body and mind, making it an excellent choice for managing stress, anxiety, and related symptoms. It can help regulate the body's stress response, promote relaxation, and improve emotional well-being.
What to Expect in Our Acupuncture Session
During an acupuncture session at our clinic, our skilled acupuncturist will begin by thoroughly assessing your condition and medical history. This evaluation helps us determine the appropriate acupuncture points to target for optimal results.
The acupuncture process involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into the selected acupoints. Although, our acupuncturist may also incorporate additional techniques, such as acupressure, cupping, or electrical stimulation, to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. The number of sessions varies depending on your specific condition, but regular acupuncture sessions are typically recommended to achieve long-term benefits.
