What is acupuncture?

Understanding Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been around for over 3,000 years and we’re still learning a lot about how and why this unique and holistic service is so beneficial for human health! In the Traditional Chinese Medicine view, acupuncture works by improving the flow of energy or “chi” in the body, restoring balance to the system, and easing symptoms and root causes of disease and dysfunction. Our modern Western view of acupuncture suggests that acupuncture needles influence the nervous system and trigger hormonal, biological, and physiological changes throughout the body. In doing so, acupuncture is thought to help reduce pain, tension, inflammation, and more.

Conditions That May Benefit from Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been shown to improve a wide range of health conditions involving multiple systems and organs, including:

  • Back pain and neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Whiplash
  • Joint pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Asthma and other breathing problems
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sciatica and other types of nerve impingement
  • Nausea
  • Infertility
  • Pregnancy and postpartum pain
  • Mental health conditions like depression and anxiety

In our Frankfort chiropractic clinic, we use a ‘whole-body’ approach and find that acupuncture works best when provided alongside other treatments such as chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, and nutrition that support the body’s healing.

Acupuncture Care

What to Expect During an Acupuncture Session

Frankfort chiropractor Dr. Jon Heyer is fully trained and certified to provide acupuncture to a diverse range of patients, including seniors, adults, and children.

During an acupuncture treatment, Dr. Heyer will insert thin sterile needles into specific areas called acupuncture pressure points, into your skin. The areas vary depending on your condition and the goal of treatment but may include the face, ears, neck, spine, and limbs. While these needles are inserted, you will rest comfortably on a treatment table, a typical treatment session is 15 minutes.

Acupuncture doesn’t hurt, although some people will notice the sensation of the needles going into the skin, most don’t even feel them being removed. Your acupuncture treatments will be provided alongside other customized services to maximize your outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most insurance policies do not cover acupuncture and even the rare few that say they do, try to find loopholes to get out of paying for the service. But don’t worry, we have kept our fees very reasonable because we know most of our patients will be paying for the service themselves and find the service very worthwhile.

Most individuals find that it doesn’t. The needles are very fine, with a thickness of 1 or 2 hairs wide. And we really aren’t puncturing the skin, we insert them 1 or 2 millimeters in the surface of the skin. There maybe a pinch but that usually only lasts a moment.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the condition being treated, its severity, and individual response to treatment. We will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
