Acupuncture Q & A

Axness Integrative Medicine

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment that promotes natural healing of your body. Tiny, sterile needles are inserted at specific points throughout your body, resulting in the release of endorphins and serotonin, also known as the body’s natural painkillers. Everybody is different, and that’s why your treatment plan will be customized to reduce or help you manage your conditions.

Typical treatments consist of 15-25 needles, depending on your condition and symptoms.

What does acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is an all-natural way to promote and restore balance in the body. It relieves symptoms from a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Nausea
  • Migraines
  • Chronic pain
  • Causes of infertility

What treatments are available?

Jenna offers several acupuncture treatments depending on the type and severity of your symptoms, including cupping therapy, cosmetic acupuncture, and group acupuncture.

Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy uses glass or plastic cups, rather than needles, to soothe sore muscles in the neck, shoulder, and lower back. The cups are vacuum formed on your skin and promote circulation to relieve pain caused by stagnation or “stuck” blood. Cupping is a relaxing experience that can be part of any acupuncture treatment. Afterwards, you may notice bruise-like marks on your body, but they disappear quickly.

Cosmetic acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture can stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing lines and wrinkles while improving muscle tone on your jawline. It can also help even your skin tone. Cosmetic acupuncture provides relaxation and reduces stress. It’s an appropriate treatment for patients of all ages.

Group acupuncture

Group acupuncture is a treatment given in a group setting instead of one-on-one. The 30-minute treatment primarily focuses on the front of the body including knees, feet, ears and other distal points. Jenna recommends wearing comfy clothes for easier access to these important parts of the body. Group acupuncture is an excellent method to treat headaches, stress, and sleep issues.
