Acupuncture has been a part of traditional Chinese medicine for more than three thousand years. Under this model of treatment, it balances the flow of energy in the human body with the effective use of sterile needles at acupoints.
The Medical Acupuncture that we practice in Burlington is a branch of traditional Chinese acupuncture and the focus is on improving blood flow, reducing pain and improving the function of the musculoskeletal system.
Wondering if acupuncture in Burlington is the right choice for you? Here are some points that highlight the benefits of the treatment:
- Injury Treatment
Insertion of needles in the use of medical acupuncture improves blood flow to the injured tissues, reduces pain and discomfort and improves the function of the injured tissues. When the needles are inserted, electrodes are attached to the needles (this is called electro-acupuncture) and this has a direct effect on the nervous system and the connection between the brain (our central nervous system computer) and the injured tissue (muscle, ligament, tendon). What was once used as the foremost treatment alternative for martial arts injury can now be used by the masses. The efficacy of acupuncture makes it the primary treatment method for professional sports teams in different countries.
- Helps with Improving Digestion
Because Acupuncture in Burlington has an effect on the nervous system, it can sometimes help to regulate the digestive system and improve its function. The world health organization acknowledges acupuncture as an effective method to improve digestive imbalance.
- Sound Sleep
If your discomfort has not allowed you to sleep, then opting for acupuncture treatment can help by reducing pain and helping with relaxation. The best aspect of acupuncture in Burlington is that it focuses on the root cause of the issue instead of working around the symptoms.
What to Expect When Visiting an Acupuncturist?
The initial part of the acupuncture session involves the practitioner and you discussing your condition, doing a physical exam and then finishing with a treatment. The session can last from sixty to ninety minutes, wherein the treatment process takes up around thirty minutes.
In terms of results, it is difficult to say for sure as every individual’s body has a different reaction to the treatment. While some people might experience relief in a short span, others might take longer.
The insertion of needles is very comfortable as the needles are very thin and most patients feel very little while getting treated.
There are very few side effects to having medical acupuncture. The most common side effect might be a bit of soreness post-treatment or a small bruise.
