Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

The exact history of acupuncture remains under debate, but most experts agree that it’s been in use for anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000 years. And the reason behind this longevity is that acupuncture has helped people around the world solve a host of problems in the human body.

Acupuncture is a technique that’s designed to improve your body’s flow of energy by applying pressure to various points using needles. The needles don’t cause pain, just pressure, and they release any blockages that may be preventing your body’s resources from getting to where they need.

While this may sound vague, in practice what it does is allow your body’s healing resources to flow freely throughout your body, enabling it to promote regeneration where needed and fight off illness and disease.

What can acupuncture treat?

Traditionally, there’s very little that acupuncture hasn’t been used to treat. From pain management to ward off disease, practitioners have extolled its effectiveness for most medical problems by stimulating the flow of energy in the human body.

At White Sands Integrative Medical, the team uses acupuncture to treat the following:

  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Tension
  • Lingering muscle tension
  • Infertility

While this list may seem broad, if you consider that allergies are a problem with your immune system, it makes sense that by freeing up your body’s flow, including your immune system, it’s better able to function properly.

As well, when it comes to tension, which is the main culprit behind headaches and muscle aches, acupuncture works to release the tension buildup. This encourages more healthy flow into your muscles and discourages spasms and tightness.

Are there any side effects from acupuncture?

Since acupuncture first burst onto the western medical scene in the 1970s, it’s been the target of intense scrutiny. Even the US Department of Health and Human Services weighed in and found that, “acupuncture is generally considered safe when performed by an experienced, well-trained practitioner using sterile needles.”

White Sands Integrative Medical has experienced acupuncturists who the healing art into his practice in an effort to offer comprehensive, holistic care that safely works with your body rather than against it.
