Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country. It is even more popular in other countries.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a way of balancing the body. It uses thin needles placed at specific points in the body. Cox Natural Healthcare Solutions is trained to know where to locate these points for the related condition or symptom. When these specific points are stimulated, your body’s function improves and begins a self-healing process. An acupuncture session will typically last 20 minutes. Cox Natural Healthcare Solutions will develop a treatment plan based on your specific needs. The number of treatments will vary among each individual or condition. The best acupuncture is painless despite popular belief. Many patients even report being more relaxed after receiving treatment. Acupuncture is a safe, alternative treatment for pain. It has fewer side effects than medications you may be taking to relieve your pain.
