Acupuncture Therapy at Carter Natural Health Center
When most people think of visiting the nutritional specialist, they think of someone who helps with dieting and nutritional health. While these are vital aspects of health care at our office, our team at Carter Natural Health Center also provides patients natural pain relief through acupuncture. This technique has been proven to be effective in reducing pain or discomfort and uses extremely thin needles that are painless. Our Hendersonville team can help you find natural relief through our acupuncture therapy.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient practice used to deal with pain. Acupuncture is administered by inserting very thin needles into certain pressure points around the body. Our doctor is trained in identifying meridians around the body. These are pathways of energy and activity that work with the nervous system. It is believed that chronic pain can be a result of misfiring activity in the nervous system.
When acupuncture needles are correctly positioned along these meridians, it can help to reset the nervous system activity. As a result, this therapy can dramatically reduce pain.
Who Should Receive Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is safe for most patients. When you first visit our doctor, we will evaluate your medical history and overall health. If we find any reason why you should not have acupuncture therapy, our doctor will discuss other options that will benefit you. Acupuncture is often beneficial for those who are dealing with chronic pain issues. Chronic pain can be a result of an injury or a pain disorder such as Fibromyalgia.
This is an excellent option for those who are looking for a non-invasive and drug-free pain relief option. Many chronic pain disorders are treated with prescription pain killers. These medications are often addictive and have negative side effects. Medications also only help reduce symptoms rather than alleviating the condition from its source. Finding natural pain relief is essential to your long-term health and wellness.
Other Benefits of Acupuncture
Beyond pain relief, many patients also claim that acupuncture helps to relieve stress, increase focus and even improve sleep patterns. This is because our acupuncture therapy helps to balance the nervous system. The nervous system helps to control every part of the body, so the benefits can be far-reaching throughout the body.
