Acupuncture treats a wide variety of health problems including neck and lower back pain, pain anywhere in the body, stiffness and lack of mobility, arthritis, headaches, digestive problems, sinus pain, anxiety, depression, and lack of energy. The list goes on and on.
Each treatment is a wellness treatment, or “tune-up,.” for relaxation and optimal health. Acupuncture works by balancing and relaxing the brain and body, thus allowing healing to take place. It is completely safe and deeply relaxing. Louis also offers helpful advice regarding self-help, nutrition, herbal medicine, specialized exercises and health promotion in general.
Acupuncture is currently used in every city and state, and many hospitals. At American acupuncture there is a full, comprehensive treatment, no red tape, no lines, and quality time. It is important for people to know that the treatments are more than needles, and that, when used, the needles are tiny and painless. Sometimes acupressure and muscle work are used instead.
I have considerable experience treating joint and muscles problems and pain, but many other conditions including headaches, stress, chronic pain, and anxiety. People who come to my office enjoy the wellness treatment which are an hour long; these are like a whole body tune-up. Harvard medical school newsletter recently said that acupuncture is tops for pain and stress. Important to understand that I only treat one person an hour, therefore treatments are not only comfortable and relaxed but very comprehensive.
