Acupuncture in Westport
Handled by Experienced Chiropractors
As an ancient medical practice, acupuncture has been used to treat pain and other disorders in the body for approximately 5,000 to 7,000 years. By using a very slender, painless needle to penetrate the skin, acupuncturists stimulate different points on the body, alleviating pain and treating a wide variety of health conditions. Tapping into the body’s electromagnetic energy system, acupuncture treatment seeks to correct disruptions in the body’s energy flow. The goal of acupuncture is to restore normalcy to this energy field through the stimulation of specific acupoints.
Acupuncture can help alleviate many conditions, including:
- Migraine, tension cluster, and/or sinus headaches
- Bladder dysfunction and/or bed wetting
- Acute and chronic pain
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Neck and back pain
- Gastric problems
- Skin conditions
What to Expect from Treatment
Many people assume that acupuncture is painful because it involves needles penetrating the skin. However, this is not the case, as acupuncture needles are so slender that four can fit inside an average hypodermic needle. Most patients describe the sensation as less than a mosquito bite! In addition to needle-based acupuncture therapy, our Westport acupuncturist is also able to provide therapy using needle-less technology in the form of electronic and laser stimulation. Depending on your personal condition, the number of treatments will vary. We start with one treatment and assess if this approach is right for you, depending on your condition and how your body responds.
