Acupuncture Orlando

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It's based on the theory that energy, called “Qi” flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or imbalances your Qi. Acupuncture - including acupuncture in Orlando - is a way to unblock or influence Qi and help it flow back into balance. It is performed by putting very thin needles into your skin at specific points on your body. This is done to influence and enhance the energy flow. Sometimes heat, pressure, or mild electrical current may be used along with the needles to improve the effect and speed up the recovery.

Acupuncture became famous thanks to its pain relieving properties; various somatic and psychological conditions have been proven to be treatable with acupuncture. Nowadays, acupuncture is the most frequently chosen natural medicine modality because of its efficacy and benign treatment procedure, however, it must be performed by a professional and experienced acupuncturist.


Orlando Acupuncture - how does it work?

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the energy flow or life force that is believed to flow through pathways (called meridians) in your body. Acupuncture - including acupuncture in Orlando - is performed by inserting very fine needles into specific, carefully allocated points along these meridians (the abovementioned acupoints) in order to stimulate them. Acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance if the treatment is performed with precision and paying attention to minutiae. In other words, gentle but precise puncturing (acupuncture) of the acupoints or pressing of the receptors on one’s body (acupressure) unblocks those energetic channels and regulate the energy flow throughout the body.

Acupuncture Orlando - How do I know if it’s is right for me?

Before giving advice about the most effective therapy for your condition, Dr. Andriy Chetin - a licensed Orlando acupuncturist from Medica Vita, will conduct a general checkup - just like a regular internal medicine doctor would do. Your blood pressure and irises can be checked as well. Only when your condition has been specified and recognized the doctor will agree to commence the therapy. It is vital to provide your doctor with as much information about your condition and symptoms as possible because the right diagnosis determines which acupoints the doctor will focus on during the therapy. Different acupoints play a role in treating different conditions hence always make sure your Acupuncturist in Orlando is a professional who will conduct the treatment with utmost precision and care.

Orlando acupuncture - does it hurt?

Normally, while undergoing acupuncture treatment, you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the needle insertion, but you can sometimes feel a formication sensation. During one session a maximum of 12 needles can be used and an experienced acupuncturist will know the exact acupoints that need to be stimulated and the number of needles that will give optimal results. During an average acupuncture session, the needles will stay in your body for 15-30 minutes and this is the time for you to relax and unwind, but while remaining still so the needles can stay in their initial and ideal position for the duration of the treatment. Dr. Chetin, who is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a diplomate in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology, is very experienced in how to administer acupuncture in a pain-free way. He also has the option of using needles that have been delicately warmed up on their tips prior to insertion, if he deems it more effective, e.g. when treating rheumatism, kidney problems or cold. He may also decide to enhance the therapeutic effect of acupuncture by administering massage to his patient. The needles used are between 2 mm and 10 cm long and made of medical steel. The shortest are used to stimulate acupoints on your ears.
