Acupuncture has been practiced for up to 4,000 years on many continents. Sterile, single-use needles are inserted into specific points on the body to reduce inflammation, for pain relief, stress reduction and general balancing of the body. Acupuncture treatment is an effective tool for many common ailments including any pain, stiffness, inflammation, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, stress, anxiety, depression, headaches, tendinitis, TMJ, tinnitus, and many more! The World Health Organization has studied acupuncture and proven its effectiveness for these conditions and many more. Acupuncture is also an effective tool to help you quit smoking!
Many people are surprised to learn that acupuncture is not a painful experience. In fact, it is quite the opposite! Sometimes the client will not even notice the needle being inserted.
There may be a slight pinching sensation when the needle is initially inserted, but once the needles are in, acupuncture is a very pleasurable and relaxing experience.
If you feel you are truly unable to experience the benefits of acupuncture due to a fear or intolerance of needles, there are several options we can explore including laser acupuncture, moxibustion, Cupping Therapy or Tui Na bodywork. Bonnie is committed to finding a way to work together with you on your journey to wellness.
Pathways Healing offers a unique and additional benefit that you won’t find at many other clinics. While most acupuncturists insert the needles and leave the client to rest by themselves, Bonnie’s acupuncture sessions include Reiki and Energy Healing while the needles are working. This brings you the added benefit of relaxation, which enables the needles to work more efficiently. You won’t want to miss out on this wonderfully calming and rejuvenating session!
Acupuncture is covered by many work place insurance packages? Check with your plan to see if you may be entitled to reclaim your expenses for acupuncture! Ask if your company covers an acupuncturist registered with CEBHCP.
