Acupuncture and Neuroacupuncture Acupuncture is a technique using fine needles placed along meridians in the body through which life energy, Qi, flows in order to treat disease and restore health. It originated over 3000 years ago within the ancient Chinese Medicine tradition. It is a safe and effective treatment that is well-tolerated by patients of all ages, causes minimal discomfort, and is compatible with other medical treatments that patients may be receiving. Acupuncture is recognized world-wide as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions and there is a growing body of evidence-based research in support of its safety and efficacy. Acupuncture is very useful in the treatment of acute and chronic low back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, sports injuries, acute and chronic migraine, sinusitis, asthma, female and male fertility issues, anxiety, depression, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Neuroacupuncture is a more recent discipline that, according to the Neuroacupuncture Institute definition, integrates “traditional Chinese needling and Scalp Acupuncture with western medical knowledge of neurology, neuroscience, and neurological rehabilitation.” This highly specialized technique is particularly useful in the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-concussion syndrome, stroke, post-COVID syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and autism.
