ACUPUNCTURE REALLY WORKS
Studies have shown conclusively that acupuncture works for certain health conditions, but no one knows exactly why. The flow of life energy (qi) moves through channels (meridians) and maintains health in our bodies. Along these meridians are acupoints. There are over 750 acupuncture points throughout the body. Needles are inserted along these meridians, in these points, in efforts to restore flow to the system and bring balance, strength and prevent health problems. When there is a disruption in the flow is when we have dis-ease that leads to health problems. Acupuncture is more than twice as effective as conventional care (painkillers/muscle relaxers) when it comes to chronic low back pain. Acupuncture improves the pain, stiffness and overall physical function of arthritis. Acupuncture is just as, or more effective, in treating symptoms associated with menopausal hot flashes than the tradition hormonal therapies and medications without the risks and side effects. Acupuncture helps with infertility and during IVF transfer. Acupuncture helps with the nausea and vomiting after operations and chemotherapy sessions. Dr. Derek Hartmann is licensed to practice acupuncture and personally performs the acupuncture sessions at The Hart Wellness Center. We offer complementary treatment options for what is ailing you.
