Dr. Melissa offers acupuncture services at Inspired, both in conjunction with functional medicine and chiropractic care, as well as a stand-alone service.
By promoting and restoring the balance of energy in internal organs and the musculoskeletal system, acupuncture can benefit many conditions. We highly recommend this in conjunction to Chiropractic or Functional Medicine care, because it helps to restore activity of the nervous system and restore balance amongst the entire body. If you are struggling with imbalanced hormones, gastrointestinal distress, anxiety/depression, irregular periods or chronic pain-this is especially for you.
Acupuncture is a practice of inserting needles into various points throughout the body. It is a practice based in China that began over 2,000 years ago. It has been known to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as promote overall well-being. The points used are located on channels known as meridians, and these meridians govern the flow of energy (known as qi) throughout the body.
Acupuncture is a critical part of many patients’ journey to wellness. We find that Eastern medicine has always been patient-centered and very intuitive in its approach. It is one of the most effective ways to tone the nervous system and calm you so you can be in a healing state. And it does not require your active participation to be effective, so if you struggle to wind down, acupuncture may be right for you.
