While Acupuncture may be considered unorthodox in the United States, it has long been the most trusted and reliable form of medicinal practice in East Asia for centuries.
It practices the art of inserting needles into certain ‘chi spots’ to help trigger self-recovery for many patients. This helps release endorphins within our body and reduces inflammation. This creates a calming sensation for the patient and helps alleviate stress during and after the treatment.
This is a great alternative for people looking for a holistic approach towards recovering from an illness or an injury. Acupuncture has shown to be very effective in treating all sorts of disorders and injuries such as
- Pain relief
- Drug Addiction
- Chronic pain
- Digestive disorders
- Sports injuries
- And more
Due to the nature of healing all illnesses and injuries by targeting the root cause, many people have made incredible recoveries without the use of prescription medications that have shown to cause many side effects.
Along with Acupuncture, many clinic recommend taking herbal medicine in order to help increase recovery and healing. It is normally a proprietary blend of herbs and plants that help recover in a natural method.
Acupuncture is unique because it helps heal physical, mental, and emotional pains and illnesses. This is due to the fact that all injuries and illnesses are revolved within the hormones and organs within our body. Acupuncture helps target all the abnormalities within the body and can help recover in a natural and safe way.
There are many different types of services such as acupressure, moxibustion, cupping, and electric stimulation.
Acupressure is a type of acupuncture that involves massaging certain chi spots and is without the use of needles. This can help stimulate recovery for many physical injuries and is used depending on the type of problem the patient has.
Moxibustion is a type of treatment using Moxi candles and the doctor will carefully hover it near the surface of the skin. This is very beneficial for sicknesses such as a cold and the flu.
Cupping has become extremely popular in recent years and many athletes have been utilizing cupping for recovery and blood flow. An acupuncturist will use glass cups around your back and body to help stimulate blood flow in those specific areas and is generally known to accelerate muscle recovery.
Electric stimulation is a method of acupuncture where the doctor will hook needles to an electric machine and intensify the healing process.
Overall, the Acupuncturist will use many different methods to help treat every patient.
We have had the opportunity to interview Dr. Yang at Acupuncture Wellness and hear about the industry and about his business. He owns a locally owned clinic located in Houston, Texas and has been serving the community for over 13 years.
He starts a session with a brief consultation for the patient and proceeds to using acupuncture for the patient. This treatment normally lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. Afterwards he will recommend herbal medicine and schedule another appointment. He will typically continue treatments until the patient has recovered from their sickness or injury.
