Statesboro Acupuncture

acupuncture needlesAs a fantastic complement to chiropractic care, acupuncture is used when we see health problems caused by disruption of energy pathways in your body, called meridians. This centuries-old healing discipline is designed to focus on the integrity of bodily systems. Acupuncture boosts the immune system, relieves pain, reduces stress, improves endurance and much more. It’s also extremely relaxing, comfortable and gentle.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

During a session, our acupuncturist will place extremely thin needles into various points of your body that require attention. He’ll identify these areas after speaking with you about the problems you’re experiencing. Most patients don’t feel the needles being inserted, because they’re incredibly gentle and thin.

The best way to think about what’s happening as you undergo an acupuncture session is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians.

These meridians can experience a “traffic jam” and energy flow can become restricted. The needles help loosen the jam and allow energy to circulate properly.

“With acupuncture, we de-stress the body, the body handles stress better, and the symptoms go away,” said Tim.

Conditions We See

Here are some of the many conditions we can address with acupuncture:

  • Chronic/acute pain from sports or trauma
  • PMS symptoms (e.g. breast swelling and tenderness, fatigue and headaches)
  • Orthopedic Conditions
  • Fibromyalgia & other autoimmune diseases
  • Mental disorders including anxiety and PTSD
  • Insomnia
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Stress

What About Those Needles?

If you’re new to acupuncture, you may be concerned about the needles we use. The single-use stainless steel needles are small and ultrathin–nothing like a hypodermic needle used. An acupuncture needle is 1/45th the size of a flu shot!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does acupuncture hurt?

No, you barely feel the needles. However, if the area being addressed is inflamed or you’re getting acupuncture on your hands or feet (which have more nerves), then you may feel the needles, but generally acupuncture isn’t painful.

Does insurance cover it?

Most insurance companies do.

Do you offer packages?

Yes, you can purchase packages that allow you to save on each session.
