What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture has undergone hundreds of clinical trials to scientifically determine its benefits, and every study has established that it successfully treats conditions ranging from migraine headaches and anxiety to musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain), insomnia, and infertility. The full list is extensive but also includes allergies, hypertension, knee pain, morning sickness, and stroke! Many people even find acupuncture a successful tool to quit smoking and alleviate menopausal symptoms. *Individual results may vary

How do Acupuncture Treatments Work?

Acupuncture stimulates specific anatomical sites referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. At each acupoint, a fine, sterile needle is inserted into the skin, possibly combined with pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation. By targeting these specific acupoints, the acupuncture process promotes natural self-healing and improves the body’s functions. *Individual results may vary

This entire therapy is founded on the belief that the needle in each acupoint releases the body’s qi (pronounced “chee”) energy to bring the body back into balance and thus health. Bodies before acupuncture are often unbalanced, with the qi energy blocked like water behind a dam. As the acupuncture releases qi energy, the body’s natural healing responses are stimulated to improve the nervous system, immune system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system.

What is an Acupuncture Treatment Like?

First, Dr. Hermann will work with you to understand your health history and current problems. You’ll lie on a comfortable table while very specific acupoints are stimulated throughout your body. Most people don’t feel any discomfort at all, and the needles remain in place up to 30 minutes. While some people experience immediate relief after their first acupuncture treatment, others need approximately two treatments per week for several months to solve their problems.

Whatever your medical difficulty may be, Dr. Hermann and her expert team of doctors are equipped to help relieve your problems with acupuncture. Call our St. Petersburg location at (727) 278-3992 to learn more and schedule your appointment!
