It wasn’t until 1996 that acupuncture treatments were recognized and given FDA approval as a medical device. When I was involved at the pain group at St. Luke’s Hospital two medical doctors performed acupuncture treatments to their patients. Acupuncture treatments have  grown to become one of the fastest healing arts in this country. The use of acupuncture treatments are a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for over 5000 years and is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Acupuncture treatments are partly based on the theory that energy, called chi flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. The Yin-Yang theory is the concept of two opposing, yet complementary, forces that shape the world and all life. There is a vial energy or life force called qi that circulates in the body through a system of pathways called meridians. Health is an ongoing process of maintaining balance and harmony in the circulation of qi. Modern research has shown that when the acupuncture treatments are used the body releases different hormones such as: endorphins, enkephlins and even your own body’s cortisone.

How are Acupuncture Treatments Performed?

Acupuncture treatments are performed by putting very thin needles into your skin at certain points on your body. This is done to influence the energy flow. Sometimes heat, pressure, or mild electrical current is used along with needles. Acupuncture’s goal is to restore balance to the body’s energy balance by utilizing a combination of Acupoints located on the twelve meridians.

I am frequently asked how many acupuncture treatments does it take and how long are the sessions. Obviously the number of treatments vary with different conditions and individuals. Chronic problems generally require more treatment than acute ones. Some patients notice an immediate improvement after a few  acupuncture treatments, whereas others many not notice any effect until they have gone through several sessions. We don’t have a “box” treatment for our patients and work with them on an individual basis. Most of the time there is little to no pain unless used on the more sensitive areas that include the fingers and feet. Experience does make a difference! Acupuncture treatments north phoenix.
