Diseases That Can Be Addressed With Acupuncture

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites, commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include: manual massage, moxibustion or heat therapy, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines and liniments.

Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some insurance companies will pay for acupuncture, so check with your plan. We will be happy to provide a Superbill with your diagnosis code and billing code for you to submit directly to your provider.

Nope! You may feel a slight sensation when your acupuncturist inserts a tiny needle, but it’s much less noticeable than getting a vaccine shot. That’s because the needles are much thinner. You may feel a heaviness, numbness, tingling, or mild soreness after the needles have been put in, but these temporary sensations will pass.

Acupuncture is an Eastern form of medicine. The insertion of needles produces natural chemicals in the body called endorphins, which help decrease your perception of pain to bring about relief. The overall goal of acupuncture therapy is to reduce pain while increasing blood flow and stimulating muscles and nerves throughout the body.

Both acute and chronic illnesses can be addressed with acupuncture. Because everyone responds differently, the number of treatment sessions can vary for each individual.

Typically, the longer the patient has the condition, the longer the course of treatment before they experience substantial or lasting results. Acupuncture can be done as often as five times a week, or as little as once a month.
