Originating in China, acupuncture is among the oldest healing systems in the world. Its main goal is to restore your body’s balance and improve your overall health.
Many people view acupuncture as an “alternative medicine”: something to try when nothing else has worked. At BWC, we see acupuncture in a different light, and believe that acupuncture can complement chiropractic care, massage, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling, and magnify the results of these approaches.
Acupuncture treatments involve inserting hair-thin needles just below the skin in very specific points on the body to stimulate energy connections throughout the body. This often activates a response in your body’s immune, circulatory, nervous and endocrine systems, to help the body to heal.
When administered properly, acupuncture carries minimal risk of injury and virtually no side effects. The needles are sterile, regulated by the FDA, and used only once. Dr. Emberland is licensed and certified by the MN board of chiropractic examiners. For over 15+ years he has safely and effectively treated countless patients with acupuncture.
For most patients, acupuncture is a painless, comforting and restorative form of therapy. Acupuncture should never be painful, although the patient will experience some sensations that are indicative of a therapeutic response.
