Benefits of Acupuncture

Benefits of Acupuncture Therapy in Gainesville FL

Afraid of needles?

A lot of our patients are actually afraid of needles, but after their first Acupuncture treatment they soon realize the needles we use are very small. Unlike the needles used to draw blood or give you a vaccine, Acupuncture needles are ultrafine, sterile, highly polished, and computer-designed to have smooth tips for a more comfortable insertion. You can actually fit about 20 Acupuncture needles inside of one hypodermic needle (blood drawing needle). If you are unsure about scheduling an appointment and want to learn more about how Acupuncture can help you, you may schedule a 15 – 20 minute complimentary consultation.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a remarkable technique that enhances and regulates your body's own restorative abilities. It does so by stimulating specific points in the body with very fine sterile needles. These points influence and connect to different muscle groups, nerve pathways, and organ systems. Therefore, one can achieve a desired effect on a part of the anatomy or physiology by working on specific acupuncture meridians. Scientific research has shown that Acupuncture effectively improves circulation, reduces inflammation, relaxes the nervous system, boosts the immune system, and stimulates secretion of beta endorphins from the hypothalamus. This translates into less pain, more energy, better sleep, and increased efficiency and mental focus.
