For at least 2000 years, acupuncture has been used as a method of relieving pain and for therapeutic reasons. Migraines and headaches, back and neck pain, depression, and chronic fatigue have all been treated using acupuncture for generations using this staple of Eastern Medicine. By targeting specific points and energy channels throughout the body called meridians, an acupuncturist seeks to correct the body’s natural biorhythms and re-establish wellness.
Acupuncture doctors make use of direct patient input and questions to make a diagnosis that will guide treatment. Palpation of points of tenderness will also aid in making a complete diagnosis. Finally, a visual inspection of the face, mouth and tongue will help further illustrate potential causes of an ailment.
