At the Teggatz Clinic, we believe that getting clients results is what matters most. We borrow from the best traditions around the world, taking what works, and applying those techniques in our clinic. With evidence continuing to mount, we have found acupuncture to be a highly valuable modality in helping our patients get and stay health.
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that involves stimulating certain points on the body to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.
Developed thousands of years ago in China, numerous recent studies conducted by scientists in Europe and the United States have found that acupuncture is effective for a whole host of conditions.
- What does acupuncture treat?
Many medical conditions can be improved by the use of acupuncture. The amount of improvement varies. The conditions which tend to show the most improvement with acupuncture are stress-related-conditions, hormone-related conditions, acute injuries, most types of pain, headache, sinus problems, anxiety and mild depression and trigger points.
- What is it?
Acupuncture is a very safe and effective ancient system of healing that involves the use of thin, metal needles inserted at very specific points in the body to effect desired changes in the flow of qi or vital energy. This induces the body to heal itself through biologic mechanisms such as increased blood flow, decreased inflammation and the release of neurotransmitters and other chemical substances. Medical acupuncture specifically is acupuncture performed by a medical doctor, an M.D. or D.O.
How many do I need?
Depending on the condition and its severity, a series of acupuncture treatments is usually needed. For acute problems, a series of 4-6 treatments at semi-weekly to weekly intervals is common. For more chronic problems, a series of 6-8 at gradually increasing intervals is typical, with maintenance treatments at 3, 6 or 12 month intervals to prevent recurrence.
