A foundational treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture dates back thousands of years. Used to realign the body's energy or Qi (pronounced "chee"), it essentially maintains the dynamic balance of the yin and yang. And while it is not clearly understood how these treatments work, acupuncture undeniably produces healing and therapeutic effects when administered properly.
At Healthy Pathways, we understand how an injury or pain can impede you from enjoying life and living it to the fullest. Our acupuncturists specialize in treating injuries, chronic headaches, and even infertility using a mixture of Japanese Meridian Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture.
The body's energy runs along meridian lines that correspond to different organs and areas. So it only makes sense to treat injuries and ailments based on the corresponding meridian. From sciatica and sports injuries to neck problems received in a car accident, most pain and physical injuries can be treated in less than 10 visits.
There is a growing consensus that Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can be successful in treating infertility in women and men. Acupuncture is known to increase blood flow to the uterus, assists in balancing hormone levels, helps regulate and promote ovulation, as well as significantly reduces stress that affects fertility.
An overwhelming number of people suffer from headaches and migraines, making days a little harder and life a little more stressful. Over the last several years, published research shows evidence that acupuncture is as effective at treating acute migraines and headaches as conventional medicine, more so as there are fewer side effects.
