Acupuncture Without Needles….For Real?

November 29, 2017, 3:43 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.

Chiropractic: Improve Your Health!

November 14, 2017, 11:52 pm

Have you ever wondered what chiropractors really do?  Here it is in a nutshell: A Chiropractor re-aligns bones in the body that are slightly out of alignment, or mis-aligned.  These mis-alignments prevent nerves and blood flow to function at their full potential, which lead to many health problems.  The chiropractor removes the interference and the body heals itself.

Give yourself the gift of health by eating better, exercising, getting enough sleep, lowering stress, and seeing your chiropractor.  Chiropractic can also help prevent pain and dis-ease through spinal alignment, which allows all the nerves in the body to function properly.  This allows the immune system to fight off disease easier, and helps nerves to have enough nutrition and blood flow, which leads to every system and organ in the body being able to function better.  This results in less pain, better immunity, and overall better health.

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:

Headaches                               Chronic Fatigue SyndromeChiropractor Adjustment of Woman in White Shirt, Image

Back and neck pain                   Fibromyalgia

Sports Injuries                          Digestive issues

Depression                               Allergies

Arthritis

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health!

What is Chiropractic?

Spinal Health and WellnessNeck Pain, woman holding neckl

There is no part of your body that escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments can cause poor health and function, even in areas far away from the spine and spinal cord itself. These misalignments are called subluxations, and can reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine has the potential to alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses.  This may result in preventing the affected portions of your body from responding and acting in a healthy way.

Natural health care without drugs or surgery

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments (subluxations) and restore proper function to the nervous system.  This helps your body to heal naturally, on its own. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Instead, a chiropractic spinal adjustment is used, the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spine.  This corrects the misalignment, allowing normal nerve transmission and helping your body to heal on its own.

Chiropractic is used for both acute and chronic health conditions.  Chiropractic is best known for reducing/eliminating back and neck pain, but chiropractors can do so much more!  The chiropractic approach to health is to look at the whole person, not just the body part affected by pain or disease.  By reducing and eliminating spinal misalignments with a chiropractic adjustment, the body can begin to heal itself.  Many times the patient will experience improvement in several areas of their health in addition to improvement of their primary complaint.  When the body is free to function properly, the improved nerve and blood flow can help more than just one area of pain or dysfunction!

Chiropractic and Essential Oils, a Natural Fit

February 23, 2016, 5:52 pm

At The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy we recommend to many of our patients that they use Essential Oils to compliment other holistic therapies that they receive at our clinic and that they do on their own at home.

Chiropractors know that when adjusting the body it is important to work on relaxing the muscle tissue.  At The Institute, we use percussion massage with most of our chiropractic treatments . Therapeutic grade essential oils may also be recommended for home use and have the following benefits: increase circulation, decrease soreness and discomfort, and calm and relax muscle tissue. Essential oils can decrease pain levels, increase relaxation, and can assist the chiropractic adjustment in helping the body heal faster.  The chemical structure of essential oils allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body within 30 seconds of application.

Essential Oils have been used for more than a thousand years for countless health problems and conditions as well as for use in daily living (cleaning, perfumes, etc.). Essential oils can have a tremendous effect on the mind and body with a very small dose and very few side effects.

At the Institute we have our own private line of essential oils under the label Essential Essence, which may be purchased from us anywhere within the United States. They are extremely high quality and NOT sold through network marketing.
