Acupuncture & Acupressure Therapy at Longinotti Chiropractic Center
Acupuncture & Acupressure Therapy in Oak Park, IL
Acupuncture has been helping people for a long time and has been becoming more widespread and popular in the US in the last 20 years, with an estimated 2.1 million Americans using it last year alone. Acupuncture is an ancient healing art based on inserting sterile needles into strategic points on the body that lie along specific energy meridian pathways. It is a non-invasive therapy that has been used to treat a number of conditions.
It can include a number of other techniques including electronic stimulation, magnets or lasers to acupuncture points for enhanced healing. Acupressure is also used.
It can be used to manage pain and also can be used to alleviate the nausea one may feel from chemotherapy. Used as an independent treatment for some conditions, it can also be used to complement other healthcare therapies.
What can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture can treat a myriad of symptoms and conditions including:
- Chronic Headaches
and the list goes on and on…
lupus, celiac disease, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, palpitations, poor circulation, rapid heart beat, back pain, shoulder pain, nausea, excessive hunger, bloating, eczema, rashes, hives, dry skin, acne, frequent colds, sinusitis, sore throat, tinnitus, menopausal symptoms, PMS, PCOS, fertility, trigeminal pain, Bell’s Patsy, post stroke support, numbness difficulty breathing, cough, asthma, COPD and much more.
Acupressure therapy is an alternative medicine technique that is similar to acupuncture but without the use of needles. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through the body. During the treatment, pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages of the flow of energy throughout the body.
Pressure is applied by Dr. Longinotti with his hands or elbows. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
