Acupuncture in Chandler works by stimulating energy which flows through the body in a series of pathways called meridians. In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) there are 20 meridians. Illness occurs when the flow of energy is blocked or deficient. Acupuncture needles are inserted in specific points along these meridians to rectify the imbalance. There are over 365 acupuncture points in the body. Many Western practitioners also agree that the stimulation of muscle, nerves and connective tissue increases blood flow and a person’s natural painkillers.
Targeting specific meridian points which are related to specific body systems can help ease disorders and reduce pain. Acupuncture in Chandler is gaining popularity in many sports fields, including the Tour de France. As recognition of this ancient practice grows, more and more research is being done to prove the effectiveness of the treatments. It is currently being used to help people dealing with everything from depression to allergies to high blood pressure. It is proving particularly helpful as a form of pain management.
Every aspect of a person’s life can impact his or her health. For this reason it is important to include a full view of diet, relevant sources of stress, exercise practices, and even a person’s overall outlook on life when treating the whole person. Our treatments include detailed discussions about diet and lifestyle as we address the various factors that will help re-establish your health and balance.
While acupuncture needles vary in size they are far smaller than the average hypodermic needles. During treatments, clients usually don’t even realize that the needles have been inserted. At most, you may feel a mild tinging around the area of needle insertion and are genuinely surprised how painless the treatment is.
