Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years but the truth is, while modern research has a lot of theories about acupuncture, it’s not exactly known how or why it works. Most experts agree that when a person gets acupuncture treatment, the body can go into a hyper-relaxed state. Relaxation is regulated by the portion of the nervous system known as the parasympathetic nervous system. The beautiful part about the parasympathetic nervous system is that this is our natural status where the body heals most efficiently. So while the jury may still be out about whether or not acupuncture can directly treat chronic conditions like irritable bowel syndrome or autoimmune disease, it’s generally accepted and pretty well documented scientifically that when your body can rest and relax with greater ease, many of the chronic, complex conditions people present within today’s modern age, may improve with a regular schedule of acupuncture treatment. At our clinic, patients often report improved sleep, digestion, mood, pain, and more.
On average, most people are prescribed weekly routine acupuncture for around three months. At the three-month mark, we’ll reassess to see how the treatment is going and make adjustments accordingly. In some cases, we may do house calls, for an additional fee. Text or call (510) 626-0455.
