At G3, we offer acupuncture services that complement our physical therapy and massage programs for patients looking to take a holistic approach to their health and wellness. Based on ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture involves inserting thin, sterilized needles into the skin at strategic points to relieve pain, promote relaxation, and restore balance to the body. Although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free. Patients enjoy the many health benefits associated with acupuncture, especially when healing from chronic pain, trauma, or substance dependence.
Our licensed acupuncturist works with patients and their physical therapists to create personalized treatment solutions for conditions like back and neck pain, knee osteoarthritis, chronic headache, shoulder pain, and stiffness. Patients who are pregnant can also benefit. In addition to traditional acupuncture, we also treat patients using:
- Gua Sha: an ancient massage technique that uses tools to scrape along the skin to release obstruction and toxins that are trapped at the surface of the skin.
- Electroacupuncture: a form of acupuncture that treats the patient with electrical currents sent through the needles (or stick-on pads that can be used instead of needles).
- Cupping: the practice of placing suction cups at strategic points in the body to loosen tight muscles and increase blood flow.
- Tui na: a combination of massage, acupressure and other forms of body manipulation. This form of Asian bodywork therapy has been used in China for centuries. It works well in relaxing muscle spasms, releasing trigger points, increasing range of motion, blood flow and the body’s healing response to the affected areas.
When acupuncture is used in conjunction with physical therapy, there is often a synergistic effect allowing for greater benefits and healing than using either therapy alone.
