Schedule an Acupuncture Treatment
Many patients experience immediate comfort after an acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat physical and mental or emotional conditions. Either if you have suffered physical trauma from an accident, have body aches due to stress, or many other conditions, you can find great relief in acupuncture treatments.
At Cascade Health Center, we offer acupuncture treatments in Eugene, OR, and through it, we complement other injury treatments we offer. Still, we also have a significant number of patients that receive acupuncture treatment for the many wellness benefits it provides.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture is the insertion of sterile, single-use needles into various points on the body to promote its normal functioning and relieve pain. It has been used for thousands of years to treat physical and mental/emotional conditions. At Cascade Health Center, many of our patients come in seeking treatment for physical trauma following a car accident but are also dealing with related emotional trauma as well. This is a prime example of a scenario that can improve with acupuncture’s ability to treat body, mind, and spirit.
During an acupuncture session, a specialist introduces thin needles through your skin at specific points of the body to stimulate nerves, connective tissue, and muscles. The whole treatment can last around thirty minutes, from the moment the practitioner starts introducing the needles to when he takes them out.
In Traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that acupuncture helps re-balance the energy flow, known as chi or qi. Regardless of the belief, there’s proof that it helps relieve the discomfort associated with numerous health-related conditions such as:
- Allergic rhinitis and other respiratory disorders
- Neck and back pain
- Migraines, tension, and headaches
- Menstrual cramps
- Dental pain
