Acupuncture

Eliminate pain with a 5,000-year old healing art

Acupuncture is one of the most effective ways to treat pain and relieve stress, with virtually no side effects. It involves the insertion of hair-thin needles through the skin at specific locations on the body (acupuncture points). Don’t worry — the needles are so tiny that most people don’t feel any pain when they are inserted. You may feel a mild aching sensation when the needle reaches the right depth. The treatment is effective for all types of pain.

What is it for?

The most commonly treated symptoms include headaches, back pain, joint pain, neck pain, nausea, menstrual cramps, and insomnia.

How does it work?

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy in your body. From a Western medicine perspective, acupuncture points are special places along the nervous system that when stimulated, boost the body’s natural painkillers and increase blood flow.

Acupuncture treatment is usually completed in a package of 6 to 10 visits. Each session is 30 to 60 minutes. The practitioner may add light physical therapy and/or massage techniques to each session depending on the symptoms being treated.

How much does it cost?

For many patients, acupuncture is covered by insurance. Call us at 909-591-8200 to see if your insurance package qualifies for free acupuncture treatment. For those without insurance coverage, each session is $60.
