All of the staff, from the front desk to the nurses to the doctors, not only took care of my Lex, but they also took care of me - and for that I am grateful!
Acupuncture, a type of Traditional Chinese Medicine now well supported by medical research, involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the body’s natural regulatory activity to help control the pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation that may accompany many diseases and the conventional therapies used to treat them.
Acupuncture is not painful and most patients fall asleep during treatment. Research supports the use of acupuncture for various medical conditions including pain relief for surgical pain, arthritis; gastrointestinal disorders such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite; cancer support; neurological disorders such as limb weakness, back pain, seizures; behavior disorders such as thunderstorm anxiety; and general support for aging patients (kidney, heart, immune system).
