Acupuncture Services in Minneapolis – St Paul
Acupuncture, a pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice, is a safe and gentle option to treat the whole person, not just the condition. Many people who come to the Merriam Park Acupuncture clinic for relief from symptoms of a particular ailment are surprised by the positive effects on every area of their lives. During your first session you and your acupuncturist will develop a treatment plan that works for you.
How does acupuncture work?
People fall ill or become injured for a number of reasons. Stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, too much activity, and even your environment can be factors. Disease and injury are usually signs that the body is out of balance.
Acupuncture and related services can help rebalance your body and mind while relieving pain and discomfort. Acupuncture works by enhancing and nurturing natural energy forces in your body.
In recent years, even Western medicine doctors have begun to recognize TCM’s powerful role in treating conditions and disorders that don’t respond well to medications or surgical procedures. Prestigious medical practices, such as the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, now recommend acupuncture and other TCM therapies.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture uses hair-thin needles inserted at specific depths and points on your body. Our practitioners use gentle needling techniques and will guide you through the process calmly and patiently.
Most patients notice minimal pressure or ache and feel their body and mind relax during treatment.
