Salyer Chiropractic offers Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture became widely known in the United States in 1971 when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how doctors in Beijing, China, used needles to ease his abdominal pain after surgery.

Research shows that acupuncture is beneficial in treating a variety of health conditions.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

Acupuncture may be used for symptomatic relief of a variety of diseases and conditions, including:

1. Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
2. Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain
3. Headaches
4. Labor pain
5. Low back pain
6. Menstrual cramps
