How can acupuncture help you with what you are dealing with? That's a fantastic question. When our minds and bodies are balanced and healthy everything flows easily. But sometimes we hit a road block and things no longer flow the way they need to. It can be something like a headache or back injury that throws us out of whack. Or a serious traumatic event that completely veers us off course. No matter what it is, big or small, it can have a significant impact on our day to day lives. Acupuncture can help restore balance, health and harmony within the mind and body.
At Enrich Acupuncture, Dr. Heather Galloway provides gentle, holistic and compassionate care that to support bringing you back into harmony and restoring your vitality and well being.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to access and promote its own natural healing capabilities. In TCM there are hundreds of acupuncture points that are connected via a complex network of electrical energy systems (meridians). Stimulating specific acupuncture points on these meridians balances, strengthens and unblocks stagnant areas that may be causing pain and illness.
Clinically speaking acupuncture works in a multitude of ways. It impacts biochemical and physiological conditions in the body and stimulates sensory receptors to tell your brain to release natural chemical messengers to help with emotional stress, pain, promote healing and improve immune function. In local areas of pain when an acupuncture needle is inserted, the immune system is activated, and blood flow and oxygenation is increased in the area. Increased circulation in areas of pain mean faster healing
Overall acupuncture addresses many health concerns, strengthens your overall health and promotes a balanced and harmonized being.
