How Does It Work?

Acupuncture is a centuries-old system of healing. One of the medical arts originating in China, thin needles are used to release stress in the affected area. At Colarusso Family Chiropractic, we may use electrical stimulation on the needles. This allows the energy to penetrate deeper into the problem area for a greater effect. Laser acupuncture is available for those who prefer no needles.

Trauma diminishes blood flow, so the body is unable to maintain good health. Acupuncture promotes blood flow throughout the body. Circulating blood delivers oxygen, nutrients, immunity boosts, hormones, anti-inflammatories and more to the cells that need it.

What to Expect

Acupuncture uses many acupressure points to effectively stimulate the nervous system and produce the desired effect. Patients are asked to wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow access to these areas.

We also advise you to abstain from eating four hours before your appointment, and to refrain from strenuous activity for at least two hours after. This increases the effectiveness of your treatment.

Using thin, hair-like needles, Dr. C places them at specific points to stimulate the nervous system and release stress in the affected area. Now, the body is able to communicate with the brain, which sends signals to the muscles and spine, allowing the body’s natural healing abilities to kick in.
