Modern Acupuncture With Brittany Durkin In Coronado
In the world of traditional East Asian medicine, acupuncture perhaps takes the throne for the most highly regarded. However, it is not always easy to find authentic and effective ways that can deliver the treatment properly — that is, unless you opt for Coronado acupuncturist Brittany Durkin, at Peak Health group.
Together with Peak Health Group, Durkin Acupuncture brings the healing powers of acupuncture to San Diego and offers the most authentic experience available.
What Is Modern Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a centuries-old Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice, known to be an all-around health boost, as well as a cure for a huge range of health complications. With hundreds of years of development in China, and backed by medical research and clinical trials in more recent times, acupuncture has been able to repeatedly prove its curative powers.
The treatment is done by inserting very thin needles in specific points of the body, known as acupuncture points. These anatomical ‘hotspots’ on the body, once stimulated, can boost the body’s energetic balance and promote healing by increasing blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to specific areas of the body.
The vital energy circulating around the body is known in Chinese culture as Qi (pronounced chee), and it is believed to be responsible for the nourishment of various systems in the body, given that it is able to flow unrestricted.
It is when this flow gets interrupted that many problems begin to form. The power of acupuncture is that it is designed specifically to revive the flow of Qi and rejuvenate the natural health functions it affects in our body.
The core theory behind the treatment is to activate and utilize the body’s own self-healing capacity, which besides treating a specific problem also stimulates the entire body’s natural immunity potential.
This healing art varies in styles, and it is therefore highly recommended to choose a practitioner that is not only professionally trained but also is able to determine and deliver the correct style needed, depending on symptoms, lifestyle, and other important factors.
Who Needs Modern Acupuncture In Coronado?
This natural drug-free treatment offers a huge range of benefits for people with various health conditions and complications, both internal and external. Just some of the problems in this endless list include:
Musculoskeletal pain (neck, back, hips, joints, etc.)
Neurological and nervous-system
Anxiety and stress
Menstrual and gynecological irregularities
In China, acupuncture is particularly popular either with patients suffering from any form of muscle or nerve pain, as well as with women experiencing menopause or other forms of hormonal imbalance.
Clinical trials in Western medical research centers have confirmed that acupuncture performs tremendously well for the restoration and hormonal balance, and the revitalization of a range of natural organ functions.

If you suffer from pain, discomfort, or other health issues and symptoms, and you are wondering if acupuncture is the right treatment for you, be sure to get a professional diagnostic test that can target and identify any underlying conditions you may have, and allow us to explore the way acupuncture can benefit you.
Does Acupuncture Really Work?
While many people may still hold outdated beliefs that treatments such as acupuncture hold no substance, these claims could not be further from the truth, and the medical community is quickly coming to terms with that fact.
Particularly in the last two decades, research and clinical trials of acupuncture have repeatedly returned results that have amazed health professionals and that verify its appeal. Of course, this comes as no surprise to the cultures that have been implementing the practice for centuries and swear by its curative powers.
What Does the Treatment Entail?
Most acupuncture treatments are periodic and require multiple treatments over a pre-assessed period of time in order to see substantial change. Single treatments, while not as effective, can still provide instant relief to a range of issues, as well as help identify other underlying conditions and health problems you may not be aware of.
Each treatment includes the initial insertion of needles (amount varies — may be as few as five or as many as 30). Afterwards, the practitioner may manipulate the needles (gentle twirls or adjustments), depending on an immediate assessment during the treatment. The process can last between 10-30 minutes, after which the needles are removed.
Are There Risks or Side Effects?
If done correctly by trained professionals, acupuncture can be one of the safest treatments available for any of the conditions mentioned above. As Durkin Acupuncture regards the safety of our patients as the highest value, we guarantee that issues such as sterilizing of needles, as well as proper delivery, are never a concern.
As can be expected, the treatment itself comes with a very minimal level of discomfort caused by the needles, but even for those with extreme fear of needles, acupuncture is neither scary nor painful. In fact, ask almost anyone who has been treated, and they will tell you that it is almost relaxing!
As with most East Asian medicinal practices, there are very few (if any) potential side effects that should concern patients. Unlike chemical-based treatments seen in Western medicine, acupuncture and other similar practices have almost no potential to cause physical harm or the formation of other complications. Simply put, these types of treatments can only benefit you.
What Makes Acupuncture At Peak Health Group So Different?
More than just a generic treatment, acupuncture is an entire philosophy, with layers of complexity and different methods of delivery. Simply applying the treatment without a deeper understanding of its origins, while not harmful, is also not very effective.
At San Diego’s Peak Health Group, our practice places a strong emphasis on effective treatments that are specifically tailored to our patients and their healthcare needs.
As there is no “one method fits all” in the world of acupuncture and alternative medicine, we make it our mission to ensure that you receive the best form of care that can produce long-term results and to put you on a path to a healthier life.
