Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
At Omni Wellness Center, we use a combination of Eastern and Western acupuncture practices to balance energy and decrease pain. We treat the following types of conditions with acupuncture and perform acupuncture using laser or needles.
- Chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting
- Headaches, including tension and migraine headaches
- Labor pain
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Menstrual cramps
- Anxiety and Depression
- Cravings and Addiction
