West Hartford Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient powerful healing art developed in China thousands of years ago that uses the insertion of  thin needles to balance the body’s energy or Qi (chee).  Acupuncture uses very fine, sterile, single-use needles placed in specific locations around the body to manipulate that energy and aid the body’s natural ability to heal itself. There are acupuncture points all over the body, including the face and scalp. Where you will have needles placed will depend on your signs and symptoms. Established as one of the most important components of Chinese medicine, acupuncture promotes natural healing and improved physical and emotional well being. Call now for an appointment!

Does Acupuncture Hurt?
The acupuncture treatments themselves typically do not hurt. Occasionally you will feel a pinching sensation as the needles are inserted. Some areas of the body may be more sensitive than other areas.   It is not expected to be uncomfortable or painful. If you do experience any pain or discomfort, advise your practitioner immediately, as your needles may need to be adjusted.  Many patients report a variety of sensations, such as tingling, numbness, and “spreading warmth,” which is associated with renewed flow of Chi.

Following an acupuncture treatment you will be advised to rest and drink extra water. Most people feel very relaxed and/or energized after an acupuncture treatment. On occasion you may experience a small bruise where a needle was inserted. If you experience any pain, large bruises, or  swelling, after an acupuncture treatment, advise your  doctor immediately.

Testimnial Quote
I was hesitant to start chiropractic care but my severe migraines would not stop and no doctors had any explanation. I started care and they started happening less frequently. Then I went in during an episode and Dr. Laub and Dr. G were able to stop it in its tracks. Not only that but they were able explain why it happened. This was 4 months ago and u have yet to have a headache since. On top of that my posture that was very slouchy has begun to improve so much so that friends and family have noticed the change. So far my experience at West Hartford Chiropractic has been amazing and I'd like to extend a thank you to the doctors and wonderful staff.
