Is Acupuncture Safe?
Acupuncture needles are very fine, sterile, disposable, and FDA approved. Our qualified and experienced Acupuncturist, Lorena Mosseli has had thorough training on the safe implementation of this treatment modality and currently leader of Whittington Maternity Acupuncture Service.
How does Acupuncture Work?
Over thousands of years of practice, physicians have discovered a system of cyclic energy flowing in the human body along specific pathways called meridians. Each meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and body organ. When the energy in the pathways blocked or obstructed, disease occurs. The meridians communicate with the surface of the body at specific locations called acupuncture points. Needles inserted in these points influence the energy that flows to body organs. Acupuncture can also affect specific areas of pain associated with injury or trauma. A needle inserted near the area of overstrained muscle, tendon or nerve will increase the energy flow to that area, which reduces pain and accelerates the healing process.
Is Acupuncture Painful?
Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the size of a human hair. They bear no resemblance to the needles used when receiving an injection. In most cases, insertion by Lorena, our skilled acupuncturist, is performed with a minimum of discomfort. Most clients find the treatments very calm and relaxing.
How many Treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will depend on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and how long it has been present. Many conditions may be alleviated rapidly. Other, more chronic conditions will be relieved only with slow, steady progress.
