If you have never received acupuncture in Charlotte or at all, you are bound to have some questions. The important part is finding answers to those questions so that you do not miss experiencing what could be a very beneficial approach to working with some of your ailments. Do not let fear of the unknown, or those “needles” get in the way of trying a drug-free approach to being pain-free.
Acupuncture is a way of adjusting and balancing the body through the insertion of thin needles into plotted acupuncture points on the body. Just as you can relieve parts of the body with a foot rub because all the nerve centers connect there, you can locate these points through acupuncture as well.
There is no need to be scared of the needles used during acupuncture treatments. The needles used in acupuncture are not the kind you are accustomed to seeing at a doctor's office right before you get a dreaded shot. The tips of acupuncture needles actually have a rounded edge as opposed to sharp, pointed ones.
Another common concern for patients is, does acupuncture hurt? Most patients describe the feeling as a slight tingle and usually after the initial few needle placements; most people find it rather soothing. Even those who are afraid of needles find little to no discomfort from the needles. There is certainly a sensation, but few patients would describe it as even uncomfortable.
Receiving acupuncture treatment isn't about 'believing' in anything. It is having faith in a more natural, holistic approach to treating your ailment. The process is simple, and while it is a good idea to have a positive attitude or at least an open mind, you can notice results regardless of what your views on natural methods are.
The best way to find out is to try it for yourself. Dr. Kevin Lyons of Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center in Charlotte, North Carolina is here to help. You may wonder how you ever lived without the benefits of acupuncture in the past!
