Our Denver based acupuncture services can offer the so desperately needed relief from the physical, emotional, and hormonal struggles and discomforts.
Acupuncture works by using hair-thin needles at specific spots to access the Qi (pronounced "chee") and help your body heal itself naturally.
Here at The Point, we are always striving to explain acupuncture in a way that most of our Western minds can understand. Based on numerous studies, we have come to believe that the word "Qi" has been incorrectly translated as "energy"; and that a more accurate translation would be "circulation".
Acupuncture has been proven to increase circulation and blood flow to specific areas of the body, depending on where we place the needles. They can even watch with doppler ultrasound the increased circulation that is a result of acupuncture - how amazing is that?
We believe this is the key to how acupuncture works, because with blood flow and circulation come all the other mechanisms your body has to heal itself - ease inflammation and pain, balance hormones, to mobilize your body's natural healing response and strengthens your body's immune system.
Acupuncture has been proven to do all of those things - it's been shown to reduce inflammation, promote the release of adenosine (your body's natural pain reliever), boost the parasympathetic (rest and digest, not fight or flight) nervous system. This is why acupuncture can help with so many different kinds of problems.
Acupuncture is not a band-aid or symptom-suppressing pill that merely covers up or manages symptoms.
We seek to identify and cure the root of the problem for our Denver Acupuncture patients, in addition to addressing your symptoms.
Acupuncture needles are significantly smaller and thinner than the hypodermic needles you may be used to receiving in the western medical setting. So they are also significantly less painful. Most of our patients find it very relaxing and experience a feeling of well-being that lasts for hours.
In a nutshell, acupuncture works by increasing circulation to specific areas of the body and mobilizing your body's natural healing response. We are very often the last resort with the best results, and we can't wait to work with you.
