Don’t Fear The Needle! | Acupuncture in Houston

Western medicines rely upon introducing foreign elements into the human body to combat physiological ailments. It doesn’t give the body the chance to heal on its own, and ends up synthesizing the process. People use it because it works. But what if there was a tried-and-true method to get rid of many different problems? Would’t you feel better knowing that you were having a technique done to you that has been treating headaches, body pain, and muscle stiffness for thousands of years?

Acupunture in Houston is viewed like it is in most of the Western World, as frightening. Westerners equate needles with hypodermic shots, conjuring up images of painful doctor’s visits. Nothing could be further from the truth. The needles used in acupuncture are less than 0.30 a millimeter thick, so thin that you can fit a dozen of them into a hypodermic needle. Insertion is simple and without pain.

Another misconception is that acupuncture is a “miracle cure”, and that using it instantly cures all symptoms. That could not be further from the truth. Acupuncture treats the underlying problem of your condition, not only the symptoms. It won’t make you feel better, that is what massage therapy is for; but it will fix your problem over the course of the treatment. That doesn’t mean that some patients won’t experience relief after their first session. It depends on the ailment being corrected, the severity of the ailment, how long the ailment has been present, and the patient’s body.
