Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient practice with roots in Chinese medicine. As it has for thousands of years, this therapy uses thin needles inserted into the skin in specific areas of the body. Common areas for needle placement include:

  • Arms and hands
  • Legs and feet
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Head and face

Traditionally, acupuncture is effective in balancing the body’s energy. Modern science attributes its effects to the stimulation of your body’s immune, circulatory, and nervous systems, which promotes healing and improves the function of each system.

What conditions may benefit from acupuncture?

Acupuncture at Bella Vita Holistic Health may help a variety of acute and chronic health conditions, including:

  • Infertility
  • Chronic pain
  • Hormone imbalance 
  • Nerve disorders
  • Aging or sagging skin
  • Nausea, including chemotherapy-related nausea
  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Digestive problems
  • Stress
  • Headaches

When a knowledgeable specialist performs your acupuncture, it may yield significant results. It may be especially useful when combined with other alternative therapies and holistic practices, such as massage therapy, Reiki, and yoga.

How does acupuncture enhance fertility?

While getting pregnant may seem like the simplest thing in the world, many factors have to perfectly align for successful conception. Acupuncture can enhance your fertility by helping to balance your hormones, improve circulation to your reproductive organs, and alleviate pelvic pain. Your treatments can also help improve your egg or sperm quality.

It can also reduce your overall stress, which makes your body healthier and more hospitable to pregnancy. 

What does an acupuncture treatment entail?

At Bella Vita Holistic Health, a licensed acupuncturist performs this service in the comfort of the office. They consider your health history and symptoms to provide a customized and effective acupuncture session.

Your acupuncture session lasts about an hour and involves three steps.

  • Insertion: 5-20 needles inserted in specific points while you lie comfortably on your back, stomach, or side
  • Manipulation: Needles are moved or twisted and may include heat or mild electrical impulses
  • Removal: After 10-20 minutes, needles are removed 

Everyone reacts to acupuncture slightly differently. For some people, acupuncture is relaxing, and for others, it is rejuvenating and stimulating. Depending on your needs, you may benefit from a series of acupuncture treatments or regular, on-going sessions.
