Acupuncture is the strategic and painless insertion of sterile filaments (needles) into the body, positively influencing physiology to enhance health and well-being.
Studies show that the insertion of acupuncture needles causes different responses in the body. It stimulates the nervous system, triggering the release of your body’s natural painkillers and chemicals that give you a general sense of well-being.
The needle also stimulates the body’s injury response, diverting blood flow and delivering oxygen and nutrients that treat the problem locally.
At Acupuncture Health Services, Dr. Beys uses various forms of acupuncture to get the desired results. These types include:
Body acupuncture is the most common and involves the placement of sterile, thin needles at specific points on the body.
With electro-acupuncture, Dr. Beys connects an electro-acupuncture machine to the body acupuncture needles, sending a mild electrical current through the needles.
Auricular acupuncture is acupuncture on the ear. For this type of acupuncture, Dr. Beys places a tiny needle or seed into specific parts of the ear, where it remains for up to a week.
Acupuncture benefits many health concerns. Dr. Beys uses acupuncture to treat:
Dr. Beys knows there are no cures for many chronic health conditions but finds many of his patients benefit greatly from his acupuncture treatments.
Dr. Beys customizes your acupuncture treatment after completing a thorough examination. He reviews your plan with you, so you know what to expect.
During your acupuncture treatment, Dr. Beys painlessly inserts the needle into specific areas of your body. The acupuncture needles remain in place for a set amount of time, and then Dr. Beys removes them.
Dr. Beys recommends a series of acupuncture sessions based on your specific health issues and goals to get you the best results.
