Acupuncture Without Needles…..For Real?

April 18, 2017, 5:02 pm

Yes! Acupuncture CAN be done without needles.

Have you ever been nervous about acupuncture? Learn about NEEDLE-LESS ACUPUNCTURE and what alternatives can be used instead of needles for acupuncture.

But first…here is the truth about needles: The needles used in acupuncture are very small compared to needles used for getting shots or drawing blood.  Six to ten acupuncture needles will fit inside a standard hypodermic needle used for drawing blood.  They are very thin and, depending on the style of acupuncture used, can be inserted a couple of millimeters or a full inch into the acupoint.  Many people do not feel the acupuncture needles when they are inserted. Those that do feel any discomfort equate it with that of a small pinch during the acupuncture treatment.

However, Needles Do Not Have to be Used in Acupuncture. Some of the other forms of stimulation to acupuncture points include laser light, electrical impulses, firm rubbing or pressure, tapping the point, or taping an object to the point such as a small metal ball.

See the video below to see Needless Acupuncture demonstrated by Dr. Trent Burrup.

Acupuncture: What Is It Used For?

October 24, 2016, 4:19 pm

At The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy, we have had tremendous success helping people with a variety of health concerns, many of which have not responded well to traditional Western medicine.  Hundreds of clinical studies on the BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.  Chiropractor and acupuncturist, Dr. Trent Burrup, treats all these conditions and many others with acupuncture, as well as chiropractic and other holistic therapies.

The following links have great information on acupuncture and LISTS OF SPECIFIC CONDITIONS it can be used for.  These links are from the medical schools of UC San Diego and the University of Miami.

Acupuncture helps balance the flow of energy in the body, which promotes the body’s natural self-healing process.  This is done by working with the meridian systems of the body and specific acupuncture points on those meridians.  Meridians are energy channels through which energy flows and if the energy flow is balanced, one should be healthy.  There are many different ways to balance the flow of energy which include needles, lasers, herbs, electrical stimulation, and massage.

Acupuncture is a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture is used in every aspect of health care.
