Is Acupuncture For You?

Thatcher Chiropractic offers acupuncture to their patients. Acupuncture is an alternate medicine method which originated in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating small, thin needles placed in their skin. According to traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating acupuncture points can correct imbalances in the flow of one’s energy named “qi” (pronounced “chee”). Acupuncture restores health by removing energy imbalances and blockages in the body.

Unlike the hollow hypodermic needles used in allopathic medicine to give injections or draw blood, acupuncture needles are thin, solid and can hardly be felt. Because acupuncture is the penetration of the skin by an acupuncture needle, strict needle safety protocols are observed and sterility of the equipment is always maintained. Thatcher Chiropractic uses only sterile, single-use, disposable needles at all times.

Most Western culture’s medical beliefs depend highly on “evidence-based” medication and intervention. Acupuncture has had a difficult time proving its validity and reliability to satisfy some skeptics. What it does have is many accounts of patients who suffered for years with chronic pain and were ultimately able to find relief.
