Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an alternative treatment option that focuses on traditional Chinese medicine techniques to address pain and a number of other health issues.

The technique involves the insertion of tiny, slender needles into specific areas of the body. The goal of treatment is to open the pathways throughout your body to allow life energies to flow freely. Acupuncture can bring balance back to the body and boost your body’s natural healing processes.

Why should I consider acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an effective treatment option for a number of acute and chronic conditions. Dr. Tarabishy may suggest this type of treatment to address:

  • Arthritis
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle cramps

You may also benefit from treatment with acupuncture as a method of stress reduction.

What happens during an acupuncture session?

Throughout your body are a number of acupuncture points. Dr. Tarabishy places the needles in certain areas, based on the condition he’s treating.

You can expect to lie back and relax as Dr. Tarabishy places the needs into your skin. As the needles are very slender, you shouldn’t feel any pain. Once the needles are in place, Dr. Tarabishy may move them in a variety of ways or simply allow them to remain in place for up to 20 minutes.

Once he removes the needles, you can expect to feel relaxed and refreshed. Some people also experience an increase in their overall energy.

Everyone reacts to acupuncture differently. Dr. Tarabishy can evaluate how effective this type of treatment is on your pain or functionality issues. He may suggest routine treatments to ensure you receive the optimal benefits.

Does acupuncture have any risks?

Side effects of acupuncture are minimal, with some people experiencing some temporary mild soreness or bruising after treatment.

Dr. Tarabishy ensures you’re a good candidate for treatment before recommending acupuncture by reviewing your medical history and your current health.

Acupuncture is safe and effective for people of all ages but may not be right for you if you take blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder. Acupuncture can be suitable for pregnant women to relieve some of the discomfort of pregnancy, although certain points will be avoided to prevent the risk of premature labor.
