Holistic medicine and healing have been around for thousands of years, originally being practiced in Chinese medicine. Chinese acupuncture, known today simply as acupuncture, is a widely practiced section of holistic medicine that has made its way all over the world.
Here at CentredTherapies, we are now offering acupuncture as one of our services, adding it to our list of treatments that can be performed alongside our massages, reiki healing, and reflexology in order to provide you with the best services we are doing all we can to have you leave feeling like your best self.
Acupuncture, having been studied all around the world, is believed to affect and stimulate the central nervous system. The central nervous system is responsible for receiving a wide array of sensory information, such as touch, temperature, vibrations, pressure, pain, taste, smell, vision, and sounds. It also processes all the sensory information being received by different parts of your body at the same time and is responsible for generating a response to the information it takes in.
Acupuncture, which is the process of inserting very thin needles into specific points in a person's body for short periods of time, is believed to stimulate the central nervous system which releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain that promote and stimulate the body's natural healing ability. Some additional treatment methods, such as heating the needles or running a mild electrical current through the needles to help further stimulate the muscles. Most people who have received an acupuncture treatment have reported feeling relaxed or energized as a direct result of the treatment.
While acupuncture, like all medical treatments, may not be for you, it has been shown to be effective in treating or helping to provide relief to a wide range of medical issues, conditions, and symptoms. Some of the things acupuncture can be effective in helping to treat include:
- Nausea produced by Anesthesia or Cancer Chemotherapy
- Myofascial Pain
- Menstrual Cramping
- Lower Back Pain
- Dental Pain after Surgery
- Tennis Elbow
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Postoperative Pain

As you can see, acupuncture can be used as a treatment to help relieve symptoms, conditions, and medical issues regarding the health of your whole body, from your physical pain to pain created by your nervous system to side effects from other treatments all the way to your mental health and your sleep.
We here at CentredTherapies believe in the holistic medicinal healing benefits provided by acupuncture, which is why we have chosen to make acupuncture available to you as a treatment option.
