Acupuncture Q & A

Liberty Rehabilitation & Wellness

What is acupuncture?

During an acupuncture treatment, Dr. Lee inserts tiny needles into your skin at strategic points to reduce pain, relieve stress, and improve your overall health and wellness. Acupuncture points help stimulate connective tissue, muscles, and nerves. This form of treatment is part of traditional Chinese medicine and is a natural remedy for numerous health conditions.

What is acupuncture used for?

Dr. Lee uses acupuncture as an all-natural way to treat chronic health problems, such as:

  • Stress
  • Muscle or nerve pain
  • Back, shoulder, or neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Fertility
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Digestive disorders

Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, but research is ongoing to determine the full scope of the health and wellness benefits acupuncture may offer. This form of treatment helps reduce chronic pain that develops in your lower back, shoulders, neck, knees, and head.

What should I expect during an acupuncture treatment?

Liberty Rehabilitation & Wellness offers a warm, welcoming environment for your acupuncture treatment. While you lie on the treatment table, Dr. Lee inserts tiny needles into various spots on your body to address the source of your pain. Depending on your specific treatment, he may also:

  • Slightly move the needles around after insertion
  • Apply heat to needles to enhance treatment
  • Apply electric pulses to the needles, as needed, to improve results

You’ll likely feel little or no pain during the procedure, but you may feel a very slight ache during needle insertion. Dr. Lee may use 5-20 needles (or more) depending on the severity of your pain.

Acupuncture treatment sessions generally last 30-60 minutes, and there’s a good chance you’ll experience an immediate improvement after your acupuncture session. Dr. Lee will advise you on how often to schedule acupuncture appointments to keep your pain and stress levels low.

He may also combine acupuncture with other natural remedies, such as:

  • Cupping, using specialized suction cups
  • Myofascial release and other forms of massage
  • Sombra natural healing gels
  • Tiger patches for pain relief
  • Natural herbs and teas
