Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve technique that applies evidence-based concepts of acupuncture. To relieve pain, alter movement patterns and improve performance by stimulating the nervous system to release chemicals in the body that decrease pain. Needles are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites and stimulated manually or with electricity in order to modulate pain and other dysfunctions.The benefits of acupuncture include pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow, stress reduction, and improved nerve conduction.
Practitioners at ARC Health & Wellness select needle insertion points based on their extensive knowledge of neuromuscular anatomy. Needles are inserted in order to alter nerve signals and/or muscle tone and therefore, medical acupuncture is often integrated as a component of treatment plans for a variety of conditions.
