Acupuncture Treatment Types
Acupuncture is an ancient practice, dating back several thousand years. Since its origin, the practice has transformed, and the addition of Western medical understanding has helped to shape the face of modern acupuncture. Today, acupuncture is a complex science and art form, and many different techniques can be applied for different results.
Available Acupuncture Treatments
At Acupuncture Associates of America, we offer a variety of different acupuncture types:
- Traditional acupuncture, involving the insertion of needles into specific acupuncture points corresponding to areas of the body. This treatment can help with pain management, immunity improvement, stress relief and much more.
- Electro-acupuncture, where the needles are inserted as normal before mild electrical current is run through them. This is a stronger form of acupuncture that is a powerful therapy tool for certain conditions and types of pain.
- Weight-loss acupuncture, which generally consists of specially designed steel pins being taped to appropriate areas of the ear and left there for you to manipulate as necessary to help curb cravings. Other types of acupuncture may be utilized as well for weight loss treatments.
- Facial acupuncture, a special technique that rejuvenates the skin by improving circulation and boosting elasticity in skin tissue.
Our experienced acupuncturists will meet with you to discuss your unique needs and goals so that we can identify the best treatment for you.
