At Swayze Chiropractic, we offer two complementary healing modalities in one convenient wellness center - Chiropractic and acupuncture. If you are new to our clinic in Coeur D'Alene, you may have some questions about what acupuncture is and how it can help you heal. Learn more about this 5,000-year old healing tradition.
What is Acupuncture?
A 5,000-year old Chinese healing tradition, acupuncture is a gentle, non-invasive, and drug-free form of healing. Acupuncturists insert thin needles into certain points around the body. These points correspond to meridians within the body. By needling specific points, our acupuncturist can stimulate the body's energy (qi), move stagnant energy, and heal physical conditions - all without the use of medication.
Because acupuncture does not require you to take medication, it can be safely used to complement traditional and alternative healing methods.
Coeur D'Alene chiropractic and acupuncture specialists believe that your body's energy gets disrupted either in the meridians, which flow throughout your body, or along the spinal column. By providing the appropriate treatment of acupuncture and chiropractic care it can alleviate pain, treat physical conditions, and maintain an optimal state of wellness.
During treatment, we may use needles or we may use alternatives to needles, which include metallic balls taped over acupuncture points, mild electrical stimulation, or moxibustion (burning of herbs over key acupuncture points). These treatments do not hurt; we are very gentle.
Every acupuncture treatment begins with a physical examination, which includes taking a special type of pulse and asking you detailed questions about your health and wellness. After reviewing this information, we will then put together a treatment plan for you. Since your physical condition changes from day to day, every treatment is unique!
What Can Acupuncture Treat?
Acupuncture can treat a range of health conditions. Common conditions we treat with acupuncture include:
- Neuralgia of the Shoulder and Arm
- Digestive Problems
- Blood Pressure Abnormalities
- Female Health Issues
- Skin Conditions
- Mental Health and Wellness Issues
We combine acupuncture with chiropractic treatment to induce a full state of health. Without uniting these treatments, you may continue to experience health problems since the spine may have energy blockages. For full healing from any health challenge, it is essential to receive both acupuncture and chiropractic care.
After providing acupuncture and chiropractic, we can offer lifestyle tips that help you maintain your health and wellness even after a visit. With regular treatments, and by following our lifestyle advice at home, you can experience a state of optimal wellness, keep your body in tune, and feel mental and physical harmony.
