Acupuncture in DeSoto TX – WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture in DeSoto TX is a technique of encouraging the body to naturally heal itself and enhance its performance. During acupuncture treatment, very fine single-use, disposable needles are inserted into different points on the body. Often heat or moderate electrical stimulation is put on the site of the needle insertion.

Acupuncture in DeSoto TX – HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

The classical Chinese explanation is that there are networks of energy running through the body and over its surface in routine patterns. These energy networks, called meridians, resemble rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction to the movement in these meridians dams up the energy on one side, while cutting off the supply downstream. The meridians can be affected by acupuncture needles used at certain points. The needles for Acupuncture in DeSoto TX unblock the obstructions and reestablish the routine flow of energy.

The clinical explanation of acupuncture in DeSoto TX is that needling the acupuncture points promotes the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals will either alter the experience of pain or trigger the relaease of other chemicals or bodily hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The needles also decrease muscle spasms and trigger a recovery response at the site of insertion. New fMRI (functional MRI) scans show a redistribution of blood flow in the brain.

The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by Acupuncture in DeSoto TX promotes the body’s natural recovery capabilities, and promotes physical and emotional well-being.

Acupuncture in DeSoto TX – WHAT HAPPENS THROUGHOUT A ACUPUNCTURE THERAPY? DOES IT HURT?

Single-use, fine, hair-like needles will be put in numerous restorative areas of your body. Many people barely feel them being inserted; some could experience a mild pinch. When the needles are in place, you will not be aware of them. You will listen to relaxing songs and rest (possibly even sleep!); the needles are left in place anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes. Please guarantee you permit yourself one to one and one-half hours to benefit from your treatment for Acupuncture in DeSoto TX.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF ACUPUNCTURE?

Usually, no. The majority of times, patients will feel deeply rested and renewed; often even rather euphoric. Sometimes a bruise will develop where a needle was placed. These are normally very small, of no concern and go away quickly.
Our needles are non-reusable and single-use, therefore the risk of infection is lessened. A puncture of a hidden tissue is an extremely remote possibility.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
