Electroacupuncture uses a low frequency current which is passed between a pairs of acupuncture needles. It is often used to treat pain. It is very similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same body points are stimulated during treatment. The current, delivered through the needle, stimulates a larger area than just a needle alone. It is an effective treatment for those afraid of needles. Contact us for an appointment.
Orthopedic/ Pain Management
Acupuncture treats pain by recirculating blood flow in your body, getting to root of the problem. Healthy Living Acupuncturists helps to re-establish healthy blood flow which reduces inflammation and pain. We treat the cause of your pain, turning off the alarm respond to your brain that signals something is wrong. As blood stagnates and pools, nerves respond by communicating pain response to your brain. There are little to no side effects and it’s the best way to treat and eliminate pain.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) oriental style of acupuncture, incorporates the use of needles which restore balance in your body. It is believed that your body’s energy (chi or qi) circulates through channels (meridians) which have branches connected to bodily organs and functions. Imbalance or an interruption of chi leads to illness.
Thin needles are inserted at specified sites of your body. The needles stimulate your nerve impulses which produce anesthesia, promote therapy, relieve pain, and treat disease.
The acupuncture needles are ultra slim, slightly larger than a dog whisker. When inserted into “meaty” parts of your body they normally aren’t felt. Needles inserted into “bony” body parts, such as hands and feet, can be felt by some patients who describe it as a fleeting prick sensation.
Acupuncture carries a very low risk of adverse effects. It has been endorsed by the United States’ National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization, and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Contact us for an appointment.
