Acupuncture at Henley Chiropractic

 

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of TCM is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways in the body called "meridians."

Each meridian connects to one specific organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, the complementary opposites that are reflected in all beings and throughout nature. When too little or too much qi exists in a meridian or when the qi stagnates or is blocked, illness results.

By applying needles to certain points along the meridian lines, acupuncture restores equilibrium and health by correcting the flow of qi. Acupuncture points, or the specific locations where needles are inserted, are places where the energy pathway is close to the surface of the skin.

What type of Acupuncture does Dr. Henley perform?

Dr. Henley was trained by Doctor John Sunderlage, one of the first doctors to bring acupuncture to America in 1990 through a post doctorate program offered through Logan College of Chiropractic.  This method or technique uses a needle technique fortified or stimulated by electrical therapy with a specialized 8 lead wire. This method of Acupuncture focuses on building the persons energy system, not necessarily focusing on the pain.

To determine what is best for you specific need, Dr. Henley uses Applied Kinesiology also known as muscle testing to determine what pattern of points will be stimulated.  Then Eight wires are hooked up to the Acupuncure points and a gentle pulsing is felt.  The treatment is for 20 minute increments.  Ear points, sync points, scars and auxillary points may also be stimulated.  Often times, the feet are taped after the treatment to stimulated three acupuncture points each time the patient walks.  

How many treatments do I need?

The number of acupuncture treatments you need depends on the complexity of your illness, whether it's a chronic or recent condition, and your general health. For example, you may need only one treatment for a recent wrist sprain, whereas for a long-standing, chronic illness you may need treatments once or twice a week for several months to get good results.

For what conditions is Acupuncture effective?

 A partial list includes: 

  •  asthma,
  •  bronchitis, 
  •  constipation, diarrhea, 
  •  headaches, igranes
  •  irregular periods,
  •  menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps,
  • sinusitis,
  •  spastic colon,
  • stroke rehabilitation, 
  • smoking, to quit smoking
  • urinary problems.

You can safely combine acupuncture with prescription drugs and other conventional treatments, but it's important for your -primary care physician to be aware of and to monitor your acupuncture treatment.

How much does a treatment cost?

A typical Acupuncture treatment cost $50 to $65.

Does my medical insurance cover acupuncture treatments?

Check with your insurance company to see what your policy offers. Over the last few years fewer and fewer insurance providers cover Acupuncture.  Of those providers that do cover, the providers may have restrictions on the types of illnesses they cover.
