Why Acupuncture?

  • Chinese medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine on the planet, having had at least 1500 years of development. Acupuncture is widely practiced in Southeast Asia and China, as well as extensively in Europe and even in South America. There is even an acupuncture training program at the Harvard Medical School.
     
  • Research has shown that acupuncture is extremely safe, when practiced by properly trained practitioners. 
     
  • Acupuncture works on the body's many different systems at the same time, helping in many ways.  Through the insertion of fine solid sterile needles, an acupuncturist can help your body regain the balance it has lost, using time-tested treatment methods.

Acupuncture Process, Results, and Expectations

 
Chinese medicine is a powerful system that is holistic by design. It involves thorough evaluation and comprehensive treatment, which can include many modalities like acupuncture, cupping, herbal and dietary therapies, and movement therapies. A properly customized program can help to relieve pain, alleviate symptoms of chronic illness, and even be used as a preventive medicine to continue a balanced and healthy life.     
 
At Acupuncture of Iowa, our fully trained and licensed specialists can develop a custom treatment program to help each of our clients, taking into account all aspects of that person's health and physical concerns.
 
A recommended start to treatment is at least four to six visits. We then assess the patient's need and desire for ongoing care and make a plan for further treatment. With over 22 years of experience, we are confident we can help each person reach his or her health goals.
