Come Experience the Natural Healing Power of Acupuncture
Acupuncture in Mesa
Acupuncture is the ages old practice of inserting hair fine needles into specific points along the body in order to create a healing response. Originating in China, it has been practiced for thousands of years and has withstood the test of time to be a highly effective form of medicine.
Modern day studies have confirmed the many benefits of acupuncture. It has been shown that acupuncture works by helping the body to reduce cortisol levels (the stress hormone), boost endorphins (the feel good hormone), activate the body’s natural pain relieving receptors, as well as to decrease swelling and inflammation while increasing blood circulation all over the body.
This effectively gets the body back into balance, allowing it to heal itself naturally. It’s simultaneously simple and complex, but also totally awesome that it can do so much! And because it stimulates so much healing in the body, this is what makes it effective at treating just about any illness you can think of.
But What About the Needles?
If you are interested in obtaining some of the relief that acupuncture can offer but are nervous about the needle part, have no fear! Acupuncture needles are nothing like the hypodermic needles that are used in shots and blood draws.
At Path of Wellness, we use filiform (solid), stainless steel, sterile, single use needles. They’re hair fine, flexible and coated in silicone so that they glide into the skin quickly and painlessly. In fact, acupuncture needles are so small, you can fit 10-12 of them inside of a single hypodermic needle!
Our acupuncturist has completed thousands of hours of clinical training in school, in addition to having over 5 years of experience as a licensed practitioner with thousands of treatments under her belt. In other words, she has performed acupuncture A LOT and has gotten pretty good at refining her technique and making the needle part as quick and gentle as possible.
It’s not nearly as scary as it seems- we promise! In fact, most people get so relaxed during treatment, they fall right to sleep and are surprised when they wake up later! It’s an awesome feeling to be that relaxed.
