Acupuncture is an ancient Asian healing technique that goes back more than 8,000 years. The technique uses very fine needles inserted at specific energy crossways in the human body to reduce pain and promote healing. It can be used for painful conditions, instead of pharmaceutical pain relievers that often have unpleasant side effects. Acupuncture in Omaha is painless and has no side effects. Many health professionals recognize the value of acupuncture for medical problems and recommend it to their patients as an adjunct to conventional medical care.
Needle-less Acupuncture Utilizes Technology
Many people have a fear of needles, which can often dissuade them from looking into acupuncture as a treatment. However, new technologies have made acupuncture accessible to more individuals. Instead of the traditional fine needles, needle-less acupuncture uses a device that stimulates the energy centers of the body to increase blood circulation, enhance production of healing body chemicals and improve nerve function. Patients lie down on a comfortable table while the device is applied to appropriate energy points. The technique is painless, non-invasive and has no negative side effects. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after a session.
Conditions Acupuncture Can Help
Acupuncture can be used for a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, sciatica, posture problems, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches and discomfort from sports injuries or auto accidents. In addition, it has shown success in treating asthma, depression, anxiety, addiction problems, digestive problems and high blood pressure. The technique is being explored as a useful treatment for a variety of common problems, including infertility.
