Buffalo Acupuncture

An Ancient Practice That Stands the Test of Time

Although many people think of acupuncture as a “new age” treatment, the practice actually goes back many centuries. The first documentation of acupuncture took place in China in approximately 100 BCE. Over time, acupuncture soon became one of the standard medicines used in China, and is now backed by our modern understanding of healthcare. A study published in The Journal of Pain, U.S. Association for the Study of Pain, concluded that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of chronic pain and that the benefits of acupuncture are long-lasting.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves penetrating the skin with thin needles. When you visit our Buffalo acupuncturist, needles are inserted and activated through gentle movements to stimulate the central nervous system. The tradition of acupuncture maintains that energy flows through the body and we can channel it to obtain optimal balance and health. The qi moves through the body along twelve channels called meridians.

Because there are hundreds of acupoints in the body and 14 main meridians, there are many ways an acupuncturist can provide or administer treatment for the patient’s ultimate benefit. Some people feel nervous around needles, but in the case of acupuncture, needles are our friend!

What Is Acupuncture Used For?

Acupuncture can be used to relieve pain and discomfort associated with a number of diseases and conditions, including the following:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Arm pain
  • Knee pain
  • Smoking cessation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Sports injuries
  • Gastrointestinal disorders

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture treatment uses completely safe, sterile, and thin needles for insertion at various specific points throughout the body. Although you may feel a small prick with each needle, the pain is quite minor. Most patients feel a sense of numbness which is normal.

The needles used in acupuncture stimulate the body's existing systems to react to an illness, rebalance the body, and release healthy chemicals like endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers, and neurotransmitters, which control nerve impulses. Our Buffalo acupuncturist at Buffalo Chiropractic & Acupuncture, PLLC is dedicated to your comfort and will discuss your condition with you fully at your appointment.
