In the United States, it has been increasingly used as an integrative or complementary therapy for chronic pain. This is particularly true when other treatments fail or when patients don’t want or can’t use painkillers.

On this site, you will find the answer to many questions. I hope it helps you make a well-informed decision about trying Acupuncture as a natural effective treatment for your health problem.

What is Acupuncture?

SANAR Healing acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment that involves the insertion of skinny needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. The needles effect may be combined with mild electricity pulses and heat.

Using a combination of Acupuncture, herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle modifications, you could restore harmony and health in your body.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and herbs are the pillars of traditional Chinese medicine. It offers a complete health care system, has been used for centuries, and has helped millions of people with health problems.

At Sanar Healing, I use oriental medicine and modern western knowledge to treat various ailments. This amazing treatment is based on the idea that, when correctly stimulated and cared for, your body has the power to heal by itself to achieve optimal health and wellness.

Does Acupuncture work?

Weston Acupuncture Benefits-Sanar Healing Therapies

Acupuncture doesn’t work for everyone or every condition.

Some reasons may affect acupuncture from working:

  • Most diseases have a multifactorial origin such as genetics, lifestyle habits, depression, or stress, and control of them is challenging.
  • External factors like accidents, the environment, and others.
  • The level of commitment involving proper and timely treatment.

Read more

Some immediate changes may be noticed; others may need several sessions before seeing a significant outcome. Therefore in most cases, the body needs time to adjust to the stimuli of Acupuncture.

However, only in a minority of cases changes are not achieved.

Also, a healthy lifestyle is crucial. You may need to make changes like dieting, exercising regularly, and reducing stress. By implementing these forms of self-care, you improve and accelerate the healing process.

Clinical trials

Research into the efficacy of Acupuncture is often limited because people need to follow the therapeutic protocol, and treatment sessions are not strictly followed.

The findings are, in some cases, inconclusive, although most show some favorable results.

The problems are:

  • The consistency of outcomes;
  • The restricted amount of people with identical illnesses;
  • The similarity of control groups using dummy treatments;
  • The effect of mental aspects, which are all factors to consider.

Read more

Consequently, more research is needed to scientifically verify acupuncture treatments’ effectiveness and develop effective therapeutic protocols in diverse clinical conditions.

However, thousands of effective treatments are performed daily worldwide; most patients report satisfactory outcomes.

Are you ready for your healing journey?


What does Acupuncture feel like?
Acupuncture is done using hair-thin needles; most of the time, it is painless. Most people report feeling minimal pain as the needle is inserted.

However, some patients might feel a tiny prick when the needle penetrates. Still, this sensation usually fades away as the needles are in place.

What are Acupuncture risks?
If the acupuncture needles aren’t punctured properly at suitable depths or angles, bruising and numbness may occur. Further, soreness and slight bleeding can transpire during the procedure. This is especially true if you have a blood clotting disorder or are taking blood thinners.

To avoid any complication due to a specific health condition, I need to know if you are pregnant or have hepatitis to choose adequate medical care.

Also, I must know if you have a pacemaker or other corporal device for Electroacupuncture.

How does Acupuncture perform according to Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Oriental medicine has long described Acupuncture as a method for harmonizing energy or chi (Qi) movement in your body. Qi is thought to move along pathways called meridians. By placing needles into specific points on these meridians, acupuncturists believe that restoring stability can take place. This can improve circulation and promote overall well-being.
How does Acupuncture perform according to Western Medicine?
Acupuncture seems to help the body heal. It does this by stimulating the release of neurotransmitters in the nervous and circulatory systems. This, in turn, leads to biochemical reactions in the brain, muscles, and the circulatory system. These reactions produce the healing.
