Acupuncture at Our Cincinnati Clinic
Acupuncture is a healing modality whose history stretches back thousands of years to the origins of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the insertion of hair-fine needles just beneath the skin at strategic points first identified by ancient healers and still used to this day. This technique, which is known as needling, targets and influences specific areas of physical function to spur healing, relieve pain and other symptoms, and promote improved immune health and overall well-being -- and Lundeberg Chiropractic & Acupuncture is proud to serve as your source for Cincinnati acupuncture.
How Acupuncture Works
While there's no arguing with millennia of success as a treatment technique, the explanation of exactly how acupuncture works can vary between Eastern and Western philosophies. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that illness and pain result when the body's chi, or life forces, becomes disrupted. Acupuncture points lie along natural chi pathways called meridians; manipulating specific points reroutes errant chi flow to restore health and comfort. Modern medicine has revealed some striking parallels to these ancient beliefs in the effects of needling on nerve pathways -- particularly the many neural clusters that seem to correspond to acupuncture points. The insertion of the needles at these points causes calcium reactions that trigger production of endorphins, your own natural painkillers, as well as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory responses.

Benefits of Acupuncture at Our Cincinnati Clinic
Acupuncture offers many important benefits even in light of modern advances in medical technology and pharmacology. For instance, its ability to provide drug-free pain relief makes it indispensable for individuals who cannot or should not take strong painkilling medications. Even if you're not suffering from an illness or injury, acupuncture can help you sleep better and maintain a strong immune system, making it a great preventative wellness practice. Acupuncture at our Cincinnati clinic can prove even more beneficial as part of a comprehensive, personalized health, wellness or pain management program. By combining acupuncture's healing benefits with those of chiropractic treatment, Dr. Matthew can give your nervous system (and therefore all your physical systems) the best possible circumstances for optimal function.
