What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?

Closeup of hand performing acupuncture therapy on customer's back at salonAcupuncture is a treatment based on traditional Chinese medicine in which needles are placed at specific points of the body to promote natural healing. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s various systems by evoking its natural healing response. By stimulating these systems, acupuncture can help reduce pain, increase sleep, and promote a sense of well-being.

While there are many benefits of acupuncture, some of the most common benefits are:

Relief from migraines and headaches

Acupuncture may provide a lasting solution to frequent headaches. Studies report that acupuncture not only decreased pain, but had a lasting effect.

Improve chronic pain in the neck, back and arthritis pain

Acupuncture can provide a safe alternative to addictive pain medications while providing effective relief.

Treat insomnia

Acupuncture can help you sleep and enhances other sleep treatments.

Improve chemotherapy recovery

Acupuncture stimulates the bodies’ natural healing properties and helps improve immune system responses.

Pregnancy and postpartum health

Acupuncture helps reduce stress and balance hormones during and after pregnancy. Reducing stress prior to labor can help ensure a smooth delivery for the mother and baby. After delivery, the mother’s hormones fluctuate, and acupuncture can help rebalance them.

Acupuncture focuses on specific spots on the human body, called acupoints. These are typically located where nerves enter a muscle, the midway point of a muscle, and where muscles connect to the bone. Acupoints are located along “meridians” that run all along the body, and each meridian can have hundreds of acupoints. Sterile, one-time use needles are placed into these acupoints to promote healing to that specific spot. Because acupuncture can treat such a wide variety of conditions, set up a free consultation with Dr. Curtis Fletcher or Dr. Kadi Fletcher to see if acupuncture is right for you.
