Acupuncture Q & A

What is Acupuncture?

Originally an Eastern approach to medicine, acupuncture is now widely used throughout the western world to treat a variety of ailments. It may be used to reduce pain, or to address physical, emotional, or mental conditions.

Acupuncture seeks to restore imbalances to the body’s energy system. Imbalances in the system can cause any number of ailments. By using needles and micro-current stimulation, acupuncturists can help to balance the energy system and alleviate the symptoms caused by the imbalance.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

When practiced by a trained and experienced professional, acupuncture is safe. The points used are carefully chosen and have been studied for centuries. The discipline seeks to restore the body’s balance, not to put a system out of balance. Additionally, it’s standard practice today to use sterile needles to prevent any risk of infection.

What Should Patients Look for in an Acupuncturist?

When selecting an acupuncturist, Chicago residents should first seek out someone who is licensed to practice acupuncture in Illinois. This guarantees a base level of training in the field. Patients may also want to look for an acupuncturist who has extensive training, including hundreds of hours of hands-on practice, in acupuncture, or someone who has advanced certifications in the field.

Additionally, patients may want to see a chiropractor for acupuncture. While acupuncturists in Illinois don’t have to have a doctorate in chiropractic care, there are advantages to seeing someone who has advanced training in both acupuncture and other fields. A chiropractor will be able to combine acupuncture with other treatments that an acupuncturist who does not have a chiropractic degree isn’t able to offer.
