Back in Motion Chiropractic



The purpose of acupuncture therapy is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering. Acupuncture has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Acupuncture is based on the belief that there are channels of energy, called “Chi”, which flow throughout the body. If this energy flow is disrupted or blocked, an energy imbalance occurs, resulting in pain and disease. Acupuncture opens the blood vessels to let natural circulation flow through your body. There are over 1000 acupuncture points on your body believed to have an influence over certain organs, areas of the body, and upon certain have helped thousands of individuals overcome their conditions and regain control of their lives.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is safe if it is performed by a qualified, conscientious practitioner. Licensed Acupuncturists know the human anatomy well. The instruments used to penetrate the skin are pre-sterilized, disposable needles that are inserted in a safe fashion. The needles are extremely small, about as thick as a strand of hair. Most patients state that insertion of the needles feels like a ‘mosquito bite,’ if it is felt at all. Dr. Shelly is aware of the concern over infectious diseases and takes every measure to insure cleanliness. Bleeding rarely occurs and if it does, is almost always limited to a slight pooling of blood at the surface of the skin which can cause a bruise for a few days after treatment.
