Acupuncture treatments are beneficial for a variety of conditions such as digestive, respiratory, neurological or muscular (tennis elbow, low back pain, neck pain, etc.) disorders and urinary, menstrual or reproductive problems.
According to traditional Chinese theory, the healthy body is supported by a flow of "chi" or “qi” (energy). This energy flows through channels, which are accessible by the insertion of fine needles at specific acupuncture points along energy pathways called meridians.
Stimulation of the acupuncture points causes nerve endings to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals and hormones either change the perception of pain or trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones, which influence the body’s regulatory system.
An acupuncture session lasts 60 minutes. The treatment is not painful. The needles used are solid, fine disposable stainless steel needles with very sharp tips. They separate tissue rather than cutting it. If necessary, electrical stimulation is added to the treatment approach. The department offers a variety of acupuncture treatments:
- NAET Allergy
- Facial Rejuvenation
- Auricular Acupressure
The acupuncturist at Genesis are licensed by the State Medical Board of Ohio.
