West End Chiropractic is proud to offer the St. Louis community acupuncture therapy as part of our comprehensive pain relief and mobility support approach. The art of Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapy that has been used for over a thousand years to reduce pain, accelerate healing, and enhance overall well-being. Here’s an overview of our acupuncture services and what you can expect.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture requires inserting very fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body. These points are located along meridian energy pathways, corresponding to various organs and bodily functions. By stimulating these points, acupuncture aims to restore balance and harmony within the body, facilitating its natural healing processes.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Pain Relief: Numerous studies have demonstrated acupuncture’s effectiveness in reducing chronic pain, including conditions including back pain, nausea, arthritis, and migraines. It works by stimulating the release of endorphins and other natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body.

Stress Reduction: Acupuncture has a calming effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It promotes relaxation and improves emotional well-being, making it a powerful tool for mental health.

Improved Circulation: By improving blood flow and oxygenation to injured tissues, acupuncture can accelerate healing and reduce inflammation, leading to faster recovery from injuries and surgeries.

What to Expect During Your Acupuncture Session

During your initial visit, our skilled acupuncturists will conduct a thorough assessment, including a review of your medical history and a discussion of your health concerns and goals. 

The acupuncture session itself is a gentle and relaxing experience. You will lie comfortably on a treatment table while the acupuncturist inserts fine needles into the designated points on your body. The needles are typically left in place for 15 to 30 minutes, during which you may feel a mild tingling or warmth. Many patients find the process deeply relaxing and may even fall asleep.

  • Chronic pain (back, neck, shoulder, knee)
