๐ŸŒท A sunny and healthy spring from all of us here at Acupuncture Associates!

Two years ago, spring caught us working hard, moving to our current lovely office.

We are grateful for all the wonderful clients and thankful for the lessons we've learned during this time!

๐Ÿฅณ Here's to many more springs with #HappyAcupuncture!

๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Acupuncture is wonderful for general well-being, stress-reduction and boosting immunity!

Some people, once their problem has resolved, come seasonally to prevent allergy flare-ups, for example.

Contrary to popular belief, spicy foods and stress do not lead to ulcers. Instead, peptic ulcers are usually caused by bacterial infections or frequent use of medications like ibuprofen, potassium supplements, or certain prescription medications used to treat osteoporosis.

Lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, limiting alcohol intake, choosing a healthy diet, and switching pain relievers help.

Additionally, though stress does not cause an ulcer, it can worsen the symptomsโ€”so you may find that stress-relieving habits like meditation can greatly improve both your symptoms and the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments.

Acupuncture for Insomnia - Acupuncture Associates

๐Ÿ’ค Getting a good nightโ€™s sleep has long been considered a requirement of good health.

#HappyAcupuncture #ChineseMedicine #Wellness #HealthyLife #Insomia For those who are wary of treating their insomnia with sleep medications (which may be habit-forming or have unwanted side effects) acupuncture can be a valuable non-prescription alternative.

Grateful for every customer who enters our office!

We are committed to getting to know our patients and develop a complete understanding of your condition before making a diagnosis and determine a treatment plan.

Chinese medicine can provide a path through that inner journey of healing and we invite you to walk with us!

Since we believe that our bodies can heal themselves if given the chance, we do not believe in creating a co-dependent relationship with patients where treatments are unnecessarily prolonged.

Chinese and Western medicine complement each other and can be integrated to offer optimal health care.

In cases where medical circumstances can be dealt with more effectively by Western medicine, your acupuncturist will recommend that you contact a physician.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš•๏ธ Even our most concerned patients discover that the treatment is virtually painless because acupuncture needles are extremely thin and flexible โ€” approximately 16 acupuncture needles together equal the thickness of a pin.

The end of an acupuncture needle is smooth and rounded. Acupuncture needles are designed to not cut the skin.

Instead, when an acupuncture needle is inserted, the round edge pushes the tissue aside without cutting it. Itโ€™s as if these ultra-thin needles can glide through the spaces between the individual cells of the body.
