Conditions Treated With Acupuncture and Alternative Medicine
Our focus at Divine Point Acupuncture is relief for chronic afflictions. If you or a loved one is experiencing debilitating pain or if anything has you checked-out of life, we would love to have you visit us.
In Greek, the word chronic comes from a root word that means over a long time. And so it is with chronic disorders, they are either continuously present or they occur over and over again. Our specialty is treating chronic conditions and maximizing your relief. Physical, emotional, and mental afflictions are real and can be debilitating. If you experience such things, in particular autoimmune issues, we can probably help.
With the old-thinking stigma around mental health all but eradicated, we can now openly discuss those things that afflict human beings without any shame. Acupuncture has been treating these maladies for centuries, and continues to be a powerful force in helping to combat things like Depression, General Anxiety, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Insomnia, Irritability, Stresses, Panic Attacks, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Eating Disorders, Disruptive Behaviors, Social Anxiety, Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and much more.
Long overdue for focused attention in the U.S. healthcare community, alternative medicine practitioners have been treating women-specific conditions for millennia. Acupuncture provides Fertility Support for procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and directly addresses Menstrual Cramping, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Labor Pain, PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and Postmenopausal Symptoms such as Hot Flashes and Insomnia.
Processed foods in the U.S., combined with a total lack of solid dietary information and the convenience of fast foods during a busy day have conspired to create a national health crisis in this country. Alternative Medicine like acupuncture addresses many gastro-intestinal (GI) maladies such as Bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Constipation, Diarrhea, Indigestion, Heartburn, Acid Reflux, Gas, Stool Anomalies, and Abdominal Pain. If you have other digestive concerns, please reach out to us.
Pollutants, irritants, second-hand smoke, chemical exposures, airborne molds, viruses, and all manner of invisible particulates conspire to make catching a breath difficult at times. Acupuncture can address the resulting afflictions such as Asthma, Bronchitis, Colds, Allergies, Sinus Congestion, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms, Black Lung, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Chronic Coughing, and Pulmonary Inflammation (Pneumonitis). Many more lung-related afflictions can be addressed, so please ask.
We all get aches and pains, especially as we age. Still, there are those among us for whom pain has taken up full residency. In many cases, conventional Western medicine has all but thrown up its hands after finding no reasonable cause for the source. Acupuncture has shown to be a formidable adversary to pain, and in many cases has successfully treated seemingly untreatable pain in areas such as Headaches, Low Back, Shoulders, Sports Injuries, Neuropathy, Knees, Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel, Feet, Fibromyalgia, Muscle Tears, and so much more.
Because acupuncture has been around for nearly 3,000 years, there are not many illnesses that cannot be directly or indirectly addressed by the practice. Ancient masters and modern practitioners have studied and refined techniques to address most human maladies, a study that continues to evolve. Some common things that can be addressed are Athletic Performance Enhancement, Cancer Treatment Support,Male Fertility Support, Smoking Cessation, Mental Focus, Dental Pain, Bell’s Palsy, Fibromyalgia, Low Energy, Stress Relief, Hypertension, Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea, Osteoarthritis, and so much more.
