Join me for Acupuncture in Gainesville, Florida!
Effective natural treatment for balance and health.
Acupuncture is useful for any type of pain or while recovering from injury or surgery. It can help with conditions that are made worse by stress, including anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, migraine headaches, and TMJ or jaw pain. Acupuncture can help with reproductive concerns including infertility, pregnancy, painful periods, PCOS, and menopausal symptoms.
I am pleased to have joined the staff of professionals at Bodies in Balance Acupuncture in Gainesville Fl. You can schedule an acupuncture treatment or functional medicine visit with me in their beautiful center.
Acupuncture is about removing blocks to balance
Acupuncture is really about movement. When things are moving correctly, for example, blood circulation, then there is less pain. Acupuncture helps remove obstacles to movement and flow, so it helps clear the way for the body to work and to recover.
Balance is not a static state, it’s about making tiny corrections and adjustments. When the body does this, it is called homeostasis. It’s like when you are first learning to drive a car, you overcorrect and you’re all over the place. But after a while, it just takes small adjustments of the steering wheel to stay on track.
Acupuncture is unique in that it can stimulate or calm as needed. It can be a subtle type of treatment that has powerful results.
Acupuncture is not like you see in the movies, where people get so many needles they look like a porcupine!
In real life, the needles are thin, smooth and comfortable. An acupuncturist will carefully select the points for insertion so that we don’t use too many needles. Once the needles are placed, the treatment can feel very relaxing. I make sure the room is comfortable, with soft music playing. Some people even fall asleep during the treatment.
Before you receive your first acupuncture treatment in the Gainesville clinic, we will discuss your health history and treatment goals. Each follow-up visit will start with a check-in to see how you are doing since your last treatment.
Depending on your needs, we may include other modalities in your treatment plan, such as Chinese herbal medicine, trigger point therapy, electroacupuncture or heat therapy.
