Acupuncture Q & A
What Is Acupuncture Treatment?
Acupuncture is a type of treatment that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. Acupuncturists use extremely slim needles, placing them in key areas on the body to alleviate pain in a natural way. The needles create a balance in the body’s energy, which allows the body to return to its optimal pain-free state.
There are several types of acupuncture. In moxibustion, moxa taken from dried mugwort warms key areas and helps with smooth qi energy flow. In auricular acupuncture, points on the outer ear are stimulated for healing. In cupping therapy, suction is used to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
What Types of Conditions and Illnesses Can Acupuncture Help With?
Acupuncture can help with a very wide range of pain, illnesses, and conditions. These include lower back pain, headache pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, menstrual cramps, digestive problems, insomnia, PMS, neck pain, and much more.
What is Integrated Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is unlike any other kind of medical treatment you’ve experienced. Rather than simply examining one body part/system with a very narrow focus like conventional medicine, integrated functional medicine looks at the big picture to determine the source(s) of an issue, and our functional medicine doctors in NYC work closely with their patients to understand their lifestyle, experiences, and environment.
By considering a patient’s unique hormones, lab results, stress levels, body, circumstances, conditions, and needs, our functional medicine practitioners can create a personalized treatment plan that not only addresses the root cause(s) of any illness a patient is experiencing but gives them the tools to maintain long-term health and wellness.
In other words, natural functional medicine treats the patient as a whole and gives them solutions that fit their lifestyle. This is what the medical professionals at the Complete Wellness functional medicine clinic in NYC do for you, while being honest, personal, and professional throughout the entire process.
You may also see functional medicine described as “integrative medicine,” but the two terms generally refer to the same type of care.
