Acupuncture Services in North New Jersey

Acupuncture is a common treatment for chronic and acute pain relief – the FDA estimates that between 9 and 12 million treatments are performed annually in the US. Acupuncture can be an accessible, safe, and inexpensive treatment for a wide variety of painful symptoms, often providing a surgery-free option to pervasive health problems.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture was developed by the Chinese thousands of years ago and is performed to stimulate the body’s own healing powers and strengthen the immune system. This is achieved through a combination of the insertion of tiny needles, application of light pressure, and use of heat.

According to ancient Chinese belief, there is a network of energy called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) that flows through the body and connects through different channels known as “meridians.” These pathways are related to the organs, muscular systems, and nervous systems, and their specific internal functions. If there is an imbalance in the flow of the body’s energy, pain or illness is the result. Acupuncture is used to correct this imbalance.

Many studies performed by physicians have demonstrated that acupuncture treatments can stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural pain relieving substances found in the brain and the spinal cord. This is one possible explanation for the pain relief patients often feel after an acupuncture treatment.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

As acupuncture is performed, there is a brief “needle prick” sensation as the needle enters the skin – this is not typically painful, as the needles are so thin. Then, as the energy effect occurs, the patient may feel numbness, heat, dull aching, or tingling where the needle is located. Many patients find the treatments are actually very relaxing as a result of the natural pain-reliving endorphins.

How is Acupuncture Performed?

The treatment is non-pharmacological and completely safe – there are no contraindications, it does not interfere with any medications, and associated side effects are rare and extremely mild. The procedure is typically pain-free, since the needles are finer than those used for injections. Minor side effects may include slight dizziness or a small amount of blood when needles are removed.

Acupuncture is performed with extremely fine, flexible, hair-thin, single-use sterile needles made of a silver and steel alloy. There is nothing special about the needles themselves; they are simply tools to manipulate the energy imbalances within the body. Heat or light pressure from the acupuncturist’s hands may also be applied. The needles are typically left in place for 15 – 20 minutes, and may be rotated by the physician or stimulated electrically. Once the procedure is finished, the needles are properly disposed.

침 치료는 만성 및 급성 통증 완화를위한 일반적인 치료법입니다. FDA는 미국에서 매년 900 만에서 1,200 만 건의 치료가 수행되는 것으로 추정합니다. 침 치료는 안전하며 저렴한 치료법이며, 다양한 통증 증상들과 건강 문제를 수술이 필요없이 치료할수 있는 옵션을 제공합니다.

침 치료란?

침술은 수 천년 전에 중국에서 개발되었으며, 신체 자체의 치유력을 자극하고, 면역 체계를 강화하기 위해 수행됩니다. 이것은 작은 바늘을 삽입하고, 가벼운 압력 및 열 사용의 조합을 통해 달성됩니다.

고대 중국의 신념에 따르면, 몸을 통해 흐르고 “경락”으로 알려진 여러 채널을 통해 연결되는 “기” 라는 에너지 네트워크가 있습니다. 이러한 경로는 기관, 근육계, 신경계 및 특정 내부 기능과 관련이 있습니다. 몸의 에너지 흐름에 불균형이 있으면 통증이나 질병이 발생합니다. 이 불균형을 바로 잡기 위해 침술이 사용됩니다.

의사들이 수행 한 많은 연구에서 침술 치료가 뇌와 척수에서 발견되는 자연적인 통증 완화 물질인 엔돌핀의 분비를 자극 할 수 있음을 입증했습니다. 이것은 환자가 침술 치료 후 느끼게 되는 통증 완화에 대한 가능한 설명 중 하나입니다.

침 치료는 아픈가요?

침 치료는, 바늘이 피부에 들어갈 때 짧은 “따끔한” 감각이 있습니다. 바늘이 너무 얇기 때문에 일반적으로는 통증이 거의 없습니다. 그런 다음 에너지 효과가 발생하면 환자는 바늘이있는 곳에서 무감각, 열, 둔한 통증 또는 따끔 거림을 느낄 수 있습니다. 자연적인 통증 완화 엔돌핀의 결과로, 많은 환자들은 침 치료가 실제로 매우 편안하다는 것을 알게됩니다.

침 치료는 어떻게 진행됩니까?

이 치료법은 비 약리적이며, 완전히 안전합니다. 금기 사항이없고, 어떤 약물도 방해하지 않으며, 관련 부작용이 드물고 극도로 경미합니다. 바늘이 주사에 사용되는 바늘보다 미세하기 때문에 일반적으로 통증이 미미합니다. 경미한 부작용으로는 약간의 어지럼증이나 바늘을 제거했을 때 소량의 피가 나타날 수 있습니다.

침술은 스테인레스 스틸로 만든 머리카락 처럼 매우 가늘고 유연하며 일회용 멸균 바늘로 수행됩니다. 바늘 자체에는 특별한 것이 없습니다. 그들은 단순히 신체 내의 에너지 불균형을 조작하는 도구입니다. 시술자의 손에서 나오는 열이나 가벼운 압력을 가할 수도 있습니다. 바늘은 일반적으로 15-20 분 동안 그대로 두며, 의사가 회전하거나 전기적으로 자극 할 수 있습니다. 절차가 완료되면 바늘은 폐기됩니다.

침 치료가 가능한 질환

면허를 소지하고 있는 한의사들은 다음과 같은 질환을 치료하기 위해 침술을 사용합니다.

또한 침치료는 다음의 증상들을 호전 시키는데 도움이 됩니다.

  • 체중 감량
  • 금연
  • 불안 및 공황 장애
  • 다른 많은 의학적 질환들

침 치료는 비쌉니까?

침술은 비 수술적이고 비 약리적이므로 통증에 대한 가장 비용 효율적인 치료 옵션입니다.
많은 보험 회사가 침술 혜택을 보장하며, 보험이없는 환자에게는 할인 된 가격을 제공합니다.

Acupuncture Frequently Asked Questions

Is acupuncture safe?

Extremely safe, if practiced by an accredited practitioner such as Dr. Lambert. Needles are sterile and used only once.

Do acupuncture treatments hurt?

Acupuncture needles are much finer than those used for injections and so rarely hurt. They are also used only at a superficial depth. Some people say they don’t feel it at all, and often fall asleep during treatment.

Are there side effects to acupuncture?

Side effects are rare. Most side effects are minor and may include occasional dizziness, usually after the first treatment, and slight bleeding after the needles are withdrawn.

Where will I get the acupuncture needles?

That will depend on your individual condition and what meridian point on the body will need to be treated. Patients are normally treated lying down on their back or on their stomach.

Does acupuncture just treat sore backs?

No, acupuncture can be beneficial to all body systems including respiration, digestion, circulation and the immune system.

How many acupuncture treatments will I need?

Each patient is different depending upon their case. Often noticeable improvement is made within 3–4 weeks of the first treatment. Dr. Lambert will help you decide whether adequate progress has been made with your condition or if further sessions would be beneficial, and if follow-ups after several weeks would help maintain the improved condition.

How should I prepare for an acupuncture session?

Come to the center wearing loose comfortable clothing. Do not come overly hungry, or overly full.

Does acupuncture interfere with medication?

No. And, depending on your condition, you may find you do not need to continue with certain medication.

How will I feel after an acupuncture treatment?

Everyone responds differently. Some are very relaxed or drowsy, while others are energized. Returning to normal activity afterwards should not be a problem. Any feelings out of the ordinary should be brought up to Dr. Lambert.

Is acupuncture covered by health insurance?

Some companies do cover it. You are advised to contact your particular insurance carrier, or Dr. Lambert’s assistant would be happy to verify coverage for you.
