One of the treatment options available at A Place of Health in Fort Lauderdale, FL is acupuncture. Acupuncture is a considered by some to be a “modern” form of treatment because it’s non-conventional, but it originated in ancient China. Acupuncture is designed to target certain ailments and aches in the body, giving you relief in a natural way.
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that uses a series of very tiny, slim needles applied to specific points of the skin. These needles are said to help balance energy throughout the body, which relieves the body of pain and other ailments. The idea behind this practice is that there are 2,000 points on the body that link a total of 20 energy passageways. These passageways, when linked, can assist the healing process. Acupuncture is preferred by some over other treatment options like pain medication and surgery because it is non-invasive and natural. You’ll visit the office on a regular basis determined by your Fort Lauderdale chiropractor for sessions that last under an hour.
