Acupuncture & Wellness

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine

This time tested and holistic approach to healing is based on a few core concepts: balance, harmony, prevention, and moderation. Acupuncture has been used alongside food and herbal medicine healing modalities for many THOUSANDS of years and by BILLIONS of people.

Acupuncture helps to reduce inflammation, increase circulation and enhance the red and white blood cell saturation in the area that is needled. The insertion of these tiny needles into the body also globally enhances the function of the immune and nervous systems. These effects combine to bring the body into a more healing and resilient state.

Acupuncture’s effects on the brain are also quite interesting. It is shown to induce the release of endorphins in the pituitary gland and the central nervous system. Endorphins have powerful effects on the body and the mind which include inhibiting pain signals and producing feelings of euphoria. The word endorphin literally translates to “morphine-like substance." There are many other subtle changes that take place in the brain and body with acupuncture which combat stress, muscle tension, and nervous system function. Many people feel just as relaxed from an acupuncture session as they do from a massage.

Ailments, such as depression, pain, insomnia, infertility, and cancer, stem from or are related to systemic imbalances within the body. Acupuncture is a holistic modality and incorporates both the mental and physical dimensions of a person. The art of acupuncture, along with its clinical principles can be of great benefit for many ailments and general well-being, and your acupuncture points are specifically chosen to help restore your body’s own vitality

Fertility

When I first came to see Michael, I was not having regular cycles. In a few months I was pregnant with my first child and was over the moon excited. Now, two years later I have a healthy, happy, beautiful, and very active two-year-old little girl, that I lovingly refer to as my “acu- baby”. I am so delighted and grateful to Michael and acupuncture for helping me on my journey to become pregnant and have a healthy child. I continue to refer Michael to all of my family and friends.

Weight Loss and Increased Energy

I now have incredible energy, a more calm approach to life, little to no sweet tooth, and I have also started to lose weight. It is amazing all the changes I have seen since I started my acupuncture treatments with Michael. I am looking forward to continuing this journey with him as we continue to find the balance I need to maintain my best health.

Colitis and Pain

If your medical doctor is not solving all your issues, go see Michael. I was diagnosed with colitis, but after three or four months of taking medication and still experiencing pain nearly every day, I set up an acupuncture appointment out of sheer desperation. Now four months later, I rarely have any flare-ups, I am feeling 100% better physically and emotionally. Michael helped me change my attitude about my health and most importantly my diet. He taught me exercises to aid digestion which help immensely. Right now thanks to Michael, my goals are to reduce my medications and eventually with my doctor’s supervision, eliminate my medications completely. Michael’s acupuncture treatments and holistic advice gave me my old life back. Thanks Michael!

I went to Michael because of migraines. I haven’t had a migraine since. Michael is a caring individual that takes time to listen and help with the symptoms that you are experiencing. I highly recommend Headway Health!
