We are proud to offer treatments like acupuncture at Bella Chacha Wellness Center in Marietta, GA. Contact us today to get started on a treatment plan with acupuncture.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment that dates back thousands of years. By inserting small, thin needles into key areas of the skin, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the body, increase energy flow and release tension. Thanks to these effects, this treatment may be used to address the following health conditions and concerns:
- Chronic pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, injury and carpal tunnel
One notable treatment area includes nausea that stems from chemotherapy. Nausea and vomiting are extremely common side effects of chemotherapy, and most patients want to alleviate it naturally. Patients can often find this relief through acupuncture.
The success behind acupuncture is still not fully understood, but many doctors and medical professionals believe it is related to the way the body responds to the needles when they are inserted. This reaction typically leads to pain relief and an overall increase in wellness.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is quickly growing in popularity with patients who would prefer to avoid or have seen lackluster results with treatment options such as surgery or medication. Surgery is a highly invasive option that involves considerable risks and weeks of downtime, while many different pain medications can become quickly addictive.
If you choose to undergo acupuncture to treat your pain or nausea, our specialist will work directly with you to develop a treatment plan that will likely take place over the course of a few weeks or months. Each treatment session is typically spaced one to two weeks apart. During your consultation, we will discuss your concerns with you and help you determine which type of treatment plan is best for your needs.
