Feel Better. Move Better. Live Better.
Acupuncture is an alternative holistic medicine practice derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is done by penetrating the skin with thin, gentle needles to trigger specific points on the body that may cause underlying issues. Acupuncture is safe, minimally invasive, and stimulates nerve-rich areas that correlate with tissues, organs, glands, and other bodily functions. At DSANDA, we also offer Cupping and Moxibustion & Guasha treatments if you aren’t comfortable with needles.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Ancient Chinese Traditions
In Chinese medicine, the human body has pathways that create an energy flow called Qi. The body has over 2,000 points that are connected through channels or meridians. These channels flow through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues and organs. When the energy flow is blocked or disrupted it can cause disease. Acupuncture re-establishes and encourages the flow of Qi, which improves your condition or overall health.
Modern Science Thoughts
For a modern explanation, acupuncture needles stimulate the nervous system which then releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals can influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Your acupuncturist will strategically and carefully move the needles using their hands or use electrical stimulation.
Acupuncture can effectively treat a variety of conditions:
Lower Back Pain
Wrinkles & Aging
