What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of very fine, disposable, stainless steel needles into the surface of your skin at specific acupuncture point locations on your body. The goal of acupuncture is to balance the physiological functions of the body to promote and maintain health.
In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s believed that health issues and conditions develop due to an imbalance or blockage of your qi, also referred to as your flow of energy or life force, through the various pathways in your body. By inserting the acupuncture needles, Dr. Moshkovich is able to restore flow and balance and improve your symptoms and your health.
What conditions benefit from acupuncture?
Dr. Moshkovich uses acupuncture as a therapy for many conditions that affect her patients. You may benefit from acupuncture for your:
- Headaches or migraines
- Back or neck pain
- Menstrual cramps
Dr. Moshkovich also uses acupuncture to help women experiencing problems with fertility.
What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Acupuncture isn’t just for pain. Dr. Moshkovich also uses traditional Chinese medicine therapy for facial rejuvenation. Through her specialized technique, Dr. Moshkovich can make your skin look younger, healthier, and smoother. She also offers cosmetic acupuncture as a treatment for acne.
What can I expect during acupuncture therapy?
Dr. Moshkovich provides comprehensive care when you come in for acupuncture therapy. You may have one primary concern, but she focuses on restoring your whole health, not your symptoms.
After your initial evaluation, she develops a personalized treatment plan to address your concerns and improve your health.
Then she has you lie on a comfortable exam table and carefully inserts the fine-point needles into the acupuncture point locations on your body. You shouldn’t feel any pain from the needle, but you may experience a dull aching sensation when it hits the right spot.
Dr. Moshkovich may manipulate the needle after insertion and then have you relax for 10-20 minutes with the needles in place.
Acupuncture isn’t a quick fix, and to get the most benefits, you need a series of treatments. Dr. Moshkovich reviews your treatment plan with you before you get started so you know what to expect.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that not only helps reduce pain, but also offers anti-aging benefits. To schedule your acupuncture consultation, call Nirvana Naturopathics today or request an appointment online.
