Have You Tried Acupuncture?

Pain can completely take over your life. Ask anyone in chronic pain, and he or she will tell you that that’s all they can think about. Pain can take you to the brink of self-destruction just for a few moments of relief.

An Age Old Remedy For Pain

For the past 3,000 years, people have been using acupuncture to successfully relieve pain as well as treat a host of other conditions. In fact, many Western physicians recommend acupuncture for certain conditions- chronic pain especially.
While much of Eastern medicine is focused on keeping patients healthy rather than treating illnesses. Acupuncture is a well-established practice for the treatment of many different problems. The concept of acupuncture is simple- by inserting needles at various points in the body, it stimulates the movement of energy and facilitates healing.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

For the past 3,000 years, people have been using acupuncture to successfully relieve pain as well as treat a host of other conditions. In fact, many Western physicians recommend acupuncture.

The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the electromagnetic potential of the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system.

The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.

Moxa therapy involves burning the herb moxa (mugwort) over acupuncture points.  This assists in rectifying deficiency and resolving cold and damp conditions in the body that are leading to stagnation and pain.

Our Patients Talk About Us

I have suffered with foot pain for the last 10 years and decided to try acupuncture treatment.  Sheridan Spencer at Georgia Ketamine treated my foot pain and I can honestly say I found relief and would recommend her treatment to others which suffer similarly.

Our Patients Love Us!

As a nurse of 31 years  suffering from migraines, I was willing to try something new. Sheridan Spencer and staff at Georgia Ketamine were professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to my individual care.  For the first time I have found migraine relief and recommend Georgia Ketamine for anyone seeking a new kind of treatment. Huge thanks to Sheridan and staff for their help.

What Is Acupuncture & How Does It Work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy (chi) run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.
What Conditions Can It Treat?
Since acupuncture is a holistic system and addresses the whole person, it is effective for almost all physical, psychological and emotional symptoms. Listed below are just a few examples:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Sleeping Disorders
  • Headaches
  • Chronic or acute pain (back, knee, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hip pain, arthritis)
  • Menstrual Disorders
  • Allergies
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders (food allergies, peptic ulcers, chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, gastrointestinal weakness, anorexia, IBS, and gastritis)
  • Urogenital Disorders (stress, incontinence, urinary tract infections, and sexual dysfunctions)
  • Gynecological Disorders (absent, irregular, heavy or painful menstruation, infertility in women and men, and premenstrual syndrome)
  • Respiratory Disorders (emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, and bronchitis)
  • Disorders of the Bones, Muscles, Joints, and Nervous System, such as arthritis, migraine, headaches, neuralgia, insomnia, dizziness and low back, neck and shoulder pain

Is Acupuncture Safe?
Yes. Sterile disposable needles are used once and then disposed of immediately. The needles a much smaller in diameter and solid rather than the large, hollow needles used for injections or phlebotomy.
Is Acupuncture Painful?
Every person’s experience is unique. The range of sensation starts from nothing at all to a brief numbing, tingling, warming, radiating sensation, ache or heaviness in the area being needled. Some points are more sensitive than others. What most patients describe is that these sensations
are fleeting and followed by deep relaxation.
How Long Is An Acupuncture Treatment?
Treatments typically last an hour, and as gently as you went to sleep you will naturally feel your treatment coming to an end, your eyes will naturally open and you will know you are done. Acupuncture points will be selected based on your diagnosis, and are typically inserted on the arms and legs, below the elbows and knees. Points on the abdomen, back, head and ear may
also be incorporated. We develop a treatment for the Primary Complaint as well as the Root cause of your complaint. As you heal, your treatments will reflect your change and different points will be used.
How Do I Prepare For My Acupuncture Treatment?
Be sure to eat a balanced meal before you come for your treatment. Avoid or keep to a minimum caffeine in coffee, tea, or sodas during the day of treatment. Avoid intense physical activity, very spicy foods and exposure to extreme heat like a sauna, before or after your scheduled treatment. Where comfortable clothes that will allow access to your legs, arms, and abdomen, or back. Please do not rush, take your time getting up from the treatment table. Depending on the nature of the treatment, some patients feel awake and enlivened, while others feel sensations of euphoria and bliss, and yet others are more relaxed or tired. What you feel will be unique to you and may not be the same for everyone.
Is Acupuncture Covered By Insurance?
More and more insurance companies are covering acupuncture treatments. Ask your insurer for the terms of coverage on your policy. If it is covered, we provide you with a Super Bill to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. Full payment is required at the time of treatment.
How Frequently Do I Need To Receive Acupunture To Benefit?
The number of visits you will need varies for everyone, depending on the duration, severity and nature of the illness. Generally speaking, the longer you have suffered, the more treatments you will need. Acute conditions, such as sudden pain from an injury or seasonal allergies may require 3 or 4 treatments before symptoms are reduced. Chronic conditions like asthma, back pain or other problems that you have had for many years may take anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments until you notice significant changes. Typically acupuncture treatments are given once a week. If the condition is acute and relatively severe, treatments may be given 2-3 times per week until the condition starts to come under control. The exact duration of treatment depends on the condition, your basic level of health, and how well you respond to acupuncture. On your first visit, we will take a detailed health history and determine an appropriate treatment plan based on your signs and symptoms and the findings of that visit.
Why Should I See An Acupuncturist?
Many patients begin acupuncture treatment to find relief from a wide range of physical conditions. What often begins as a concern over several symptoms often transforms into deep personal healing that reaches far beyond the physical condition. The greatest reason to begin acupuncture treatment is to recover and cultivate your awareness of the tremendous healing power of your body. Acupuncture awakens the senses and offers the possibility of deep healing of the body, mind and spirit. Many patients experience increased clarity, creativity and deeper meaning in their day-to- day lives.
Do I Have To Be Ill To Benefit From Acupuncture?
Absolutely not. Many patients come for regular treatments to achieve increased effectiveness and enjoyment at work. Many others come to help deepen their relationships with others. Acupuncture is also a powerful preventative measure to keep patients healthy throughout their lives.
