Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a practice central to traditional Chinese medicine, and a natural approach to health that has helped tens of thousands of people. The traditional view of acupuncture focused on the idea that the body has an essential energy or life force that flows along defined pathways in your body. 

When that energy becomes impeded or interrupted, wide-ranging health problems follow. Acupuncture is a method of re-balancing the flow of energy by inserting a series of thin, flexible needles into specific points on your body, and thereby restoring optimal health. 

Modern medicine looks at acupuncture under a different lens, focusing on the biochemical reactions that occur when introducing treatment needles into your tissues. Regardless of which view you take, a substantial body of evidence backs the results available from acupuncture.

What issues can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can treat numerous conditions, all without the use of invasive surgical procedures or pharmaceutical intervention. Some of the complaints that acupuncture can help resolve include:

  • Nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy
  • Dental pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Acne
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Menstrual cramping

This is far from a comprehensive list. During your initial visit, your provider discusses which treatment options are right for you and whether acupuncture is something you should consider. 

Is acupuncture safe?

In the hands of a skilled practitioner, acupuncture is both safe and effective. The treatment needles are sterile, thin, and flexible. The providers at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic only use needles once, so there is no risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. 

During a typical acupuncture session at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic, anywhere from 5-20 needles might be inserted. The location of the needles might be far removed from the area where you’ve been experiencing discomfort. Depending on your needs, the needles might be gently manipulated during your session, or left in place for 10-20 minutes.  

After your treatment, you may feel deeply relaxed or energized, depending on how your body reacts to the treatment. It will likely take a series of treatments to achieve optimal results, depending on your specific medical issues. Your provider can explain what to expect during your initial visit.
