Acupuncture is a relatively painless form of medicine that originated in China more than 5000 years ago. It is a highly effective treatment for a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Because of its proven rates of success, it has been embraced throughout the world.
According to the classical doctrines of Chinese Medicine, a continuous flow of "life energy" (Qi) moves throughout the body. This vital energy originates in the major organs and flows along circulatory channels
We practice a needling technique that is virtually pain free. New patients often comment that they do not feel the needles go in. Only pre-sterilized disposable needles are used.
At MPTC we use electro-stimulation with most conditions because it helps people to get better results with fewer treatments. After insertion, the needles are connected to a mild electrical current. Most patients do not feel any discomfort with this procedure. The electro-stim aids in the release of the body's internal chemicals, such as neurotransmitters, endorphins, enkephalins, and hormones. These chemicals relax muscles, release blockages, restore balance, and relieve pain, all of which serve to heal and prevent disease.
called meridians. Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin, fine needles into specific points on the body along the meridians where energy flow can be accessed. Acupuncture can treat hundreds of problems depending on the combination of points used.
The ear has acupuncture points that correspond to all areas of the body. Auricular therapy makes use of these points with tiny flat “press tacks.”
We tape the tacks to specific points on your ear and leave them there for several days. The tacks provide stimulation as long as they are in place, so it’s like having gentle acupuncture all day. For stronger results, you can lightly press the tack for a couple of seconds. We commonly use press tacks for smoking cessation, weight loss, and stress relief. They can also be used to help treat pain and injury conditions. The treatment enhances the results of acupuncture, laser therapy, or acupoint stimulation.
If the tacks cause any discomfort, you can easily remove them yourself.
