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.
