Acupuncture in San Luis Obispo
Acupuncture originated in China over 4000 years ago. This ancient healing technique is quickly gaining popularity in the United States as more Americans are discovering its effectiveness for the natural treatment of their medical concerns. Acupuncture therapy involves the insertion of extremely thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body to produce powerful therapeutic effects. Stimulation of acupuncture points promotes the harmonious flow of qi, or energy, throughout the body. Regulation of qi initiates a complex cascade of subtle but powerful neural, vascular, endocrine, lymphatic, and immunological responses that together result in:
• Pain reduction
• Muscle relaxation
• Normalization of organ activity
• Hormone regulation
• Reduction of inflammation and swelling
• Tissue and wound healing
• Enhanced immune response
• Restoration of blood flow to limbs and organs
• Increased joint range-of-motion
• Digestive regulation
• Stress reduction & mood enhancement
The net effect of these processes restores both local and systemic "homeostasis"- the body's natural ability to take care of itself. On a psychological level, acupuncture provides a deep sense of calm, a sharpened awareness, and a rejuvenation of spirit.
Chiropractic and acupuncture provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to injury repair and wellness.
