It is easy to feel hopeless when you seem to have tried every remedy for treating your chronic pain and are not seeing any results. You are tired of putting different medications in your body and want a safe, natural way to relieve your pain. As a component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has the aim of balancing the patient’s energy flow throughout their body in order to help boost wellbeing and cure illnesses. At Comprehensive Healthcare Group, we offer Acupuncture in Oceanside and Valley Stream that can help you safely reduce pain and discomfort.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a medical practice that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin to stimulate specific points on the body in order to alleviate pain. An acupuncturist will normally insert 10-20 needles into the body at a time. Because these needles are so small and thin, patients will not experience any pain during the process. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that health is a result of balance and harmony within the body. Therefore, illness is believed to be a result of imbalance. Inserting the right combination of needles into the body’s energy flow points is said to bring proper energy flow back to the body or in other words, relieve discomfort.
