Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

A traditional Chinese medicine practice, acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on your body to rebalance your life force or qi.

Qi flows throughout pathways in your body and is accessible through the 350 different acupuncture points in your body. Inserting the needles into these specific points near your muscles, connective tissue, and nerves stimulates the release of your body’s natural painkillers and increases your blood circulation.

This integrative, holistic approach to pain can improve your health and reduce your dependence on potentially harmful pain medications.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

By restoring body balance, you can enjoy optimal health and wellness. The Pain Relief Center LA's master acupuncturist also uses acupuncture to relieve back pain and neck pain, boost your immunity, and help you better manage chronic conditions like:

  • Sciatica
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches and migraines

Acupuncture also promotes relaxation in your body to relieve tension, muscle aches, and improve your overall energy levels.

What happens during acupuncture therapy?

During your initial acupuncture treatment, the Pain Relief Center LA’s master acupuncturist takes time to review your medical history and discuss the type and location of pain or other symptoms you’re experiencing. They customize your acupuncture therapy according to your needs.

You can expect to lie comfortably on a table while your acupuncturist inserts fine, sterile needles along certain acupuncture points in your body. The process isn’t painful.

Depending on your condition, they may leave the needles in place for several minutes and manipulate them manually. Your acupuncturist may also opt to heat the needles or stimulate them with low currents of electricity to stimulate underlying tissue.

What can I expect after acupuncture treatments?

Once your treatment is complete, your Pain Relief Center LA master acupuncturist removes the needles, and you can go back to your usual activities without any limitations. They may suggest repeating acupuncture treatments every few weeks to ensure you receive the maximum benefit of your therapy. 

A variety of high-quality supplements, including Life Extension® and Protocol for Life Balance® products, are available to complement your acupuncture therapy.

For your safety and convenience, concierge and mobile acupuncture services are available. The Pain Relief Center LA team brings acupuncture care to your home to ensure you continue receiving consistent care without traveling to the office.

To find out how you can benefit from acupuncture, schedule a consultation by calling the Pain Relief Center LA office or by requesting an appointment online today.
