Acupuncture has been used with success for thousands of years. It can help people in pain, those with sleep problems, energy troubles or digestive issues. This form of Traditional Chinese Medicine is also highly effective for stress and anxiety. It’s used as a complement to your chiropractic care at La Starza Wellness, and can even strengthen the effects of your adjustment.
The far-reaching benefits of acupuncture include pain relief, higher energy levels, better sleep, a greater sense of relaxation, lowered blood pressure and many more.
How does it work?
There are channels in your body called meridians, which can be controlled by specific points. Chiropractors deal with nerve flow and unlocking the nervous system’s full potential. Acupuncture is all about freeing up the channels, or meridians.
The needles are applied at specific points. The network of needles inserted at these points will increase the energy in an area, allowing you to function at a higher level.
The needles used in acupuncture are nothing like hypodermic needles. They’re so thin, they resemble a strand of hair. Dr. La Starza will demonstrate a needle on himself so that you can see it before you have any needles inserted in your body.
