Acupuncture Rochester NY

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a complementary medicine approach. It’s an ancient Chinese treatment for pain, headache, depression, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many other ailments. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into the skin. This stimulates certain points or reactions and corrects imbalances in the physical system. The ultimate goal is to improve balance and return patients to optimal health.

In our clinic, we use a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese medicine therapeutic massage), moxibustion, and acupressure, as well as other Chinese medicine techniques to treat a complete range of medical disorders. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is generally considered to be natural and free from harmful side effects. In some cases, it can be used as the sole treatment for a disorder and, in others, it is used most effectively in combination with Western medicine. We encourage all of our patients to follow the advice of their Western doctors while reaping the additional benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

According to the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM), acupuncture is a low-tech, non-invasive and cost-effective system of care. It has an excellent record of success and a strong safety record. It has been found to be “highly effective” in managing chronic pain, increasing conception rates in couples experiencing infertility, controlling chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and treating migraine headaches.

How can acupuncture help diabetes?

In Eastern medicine, diabetes has been known for thousands of years. Chinese medical treatments of diabetes includes herbal prescriptions, acupuncture, and dietary restrictions. There are about 20 known points on the body that are effective in lowering blood sugar. Typically, a dozen of these points are treated at once. There is on-going research to show the effectiveness of acupuncture. Still, it’s grown rapidly in Western cultures over the last 30 years.

How can acupuncture help with cardiovascular diseases?

In the United States, one in every four deaths is from heart disease. Alternative treatments are effective and typically cost less for patients.  Acupuncture can be used as a prevention and treatment of heart disease. During acupuncture treatments opioids are released. These opioids decrease the heart’s need for oxygen while lowering blood pressure. This helps maintain a healthy heart and avoid cardiovascular diseases.
With any type of disease, treatments work best with Eastern and Western practices used together. This gives physicians options to be more efficient and effective in treatment plans.
