Acupuncture can support health and wellness and help with the healing process of most medical issues. It helps:
Acupuncture is an ancient medical therapy . Dr. Netter was trained in the Japanese-style acupuncture (also known here as Kiiko-style) through Harvard Medical School’s Structural Acupuncture for Physicians.
Your cells and organs receive energy via rivers or channels of energy called meridians or nadis. If the energy flowing through the channels becomes blocked then physical, mental or emotional disease may ensue. This can occur due to an unknown reason or following chemotherapy, surgery, or an injury.
The acupuncturist gently places hair-thin needles at specific acupuncture points along the meridians in the body. This allows the energy to flow so that the body’s natural healing system may function well. Illness and disease may then resolve and health is restored.
Throughout the centuries acupuncturists discovered that only treating a person’s symptoms did not often “cure” a problem or provide long-lasting relief. The Japanese-style of acupuncture addresses a patient’s health issues on several levels. Treatments begin by focusing on the underlying constitutional problems that have led to a specific clinical presentation or that block the natural healing capabilities of the body. This is followed by more specific treatments. In this style of acupuncture needles are placed only in those acupuncture points that best relieve the area of discomfort, soreness, or stiffness of areas palpated.
This style of acupuncture helps to relieve stress, boosts the immune system, and promotes overall health and wellness.
